Where to see him: "The Road" What he's done: An Australia native, Smit-McPhee has mostly worked on TV and movies Down Under in addition to the 2006 Stephen King miniseries "Nightmares and Dreamscapes." What he's playing: Smit-McPhee is "the boy" a.k.a. Viggo Mortensen's son in this post-apocalyptic drama. The film has played at film festivals such as Venice and Telluride, but after a year-long delay in release, the early buzz is far from great.
