Glen Powell Jr - The Great Debaters

Always a local angle

This time it’s for young Austin actor, Westwood High School grad and current UT student Glen Powell Jr., who has a chunky role in “The Great Debaters,” which opens Christmas day and is nominated for a Golden Globe Award for best drama.

He plays a Harvard debater in the film, which stars and is directed by Denzel Washington. You might recognize the handsome Powell from parts in “The Hottest State,” “Fast Food Nation,” “The Wendell Baker Story” and as one of the leads in Kat Candler’s “Jumping Off Bridges.”
