Since we got word that a new Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie is coming up, there's only been one question: who is our new Leatherface?

Well, we have our answer - and he's kind of cute? The Wrap reports that Sam Strike - star of British soap opera EastEnders - will probably be the one to don the mask and swing the chainsaw.

Our new Leatherface will be a kid, as it's a prequel about his teenage years, and he'll have the name 'Jackson,' so may reinvent a lot of previous TCM canon. I guess it doesn't matter that he's kind of attractive, as he'll be wearing a mask most of the time, and wondrous things can be achieved with prosthetics.

I'm pretty excited about the new Texas Chainsaw Massacre because ultra-stylish French goremeisters Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo will be at the helm, and I was a big fan of their movies Inside and Livide. Although the new Leatherface will be a more mainstream endeavor, if they can bring even a fraction of that kind of pizazz to it, we'll all leave the theater happy.

Do you think Sam Strike will be a good young Leatherface?
