Noah Ringer of 'The Last Airbender' has nothing up his sleeve: EW at 'The Kids' Table'

aang-airbender_320.jpg Image Credit: Industrial Light & MagicNoah Ringer wore his Halloween costume to his audition for The Last Airbender. The Dallas native had never acted before, had never even dreamed of acting, before his martial arts coach suggested he respond to a casting call for the M. Night Shyamalan film. Thirteen-year-old Ringer rounded out our crew of five promising child starsjoining Mad Men’s Kiernan ShipkaLet Me In’Chloë Grace MoretzModern Family’Rico Rodriguez, and True Grit’s Hailee Steinfeld.

Ringer, who’s of American Indian heritage, still lives in Dallas with his parents. He recently completed his second film, the Jon Favreau-directed Cowboys & Aliens, starring Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford. Besides the Last Airbender, another of his past favorite Halloween costumes was Mork, which is just so charmingly nerdy. Ringer prefers playing outside to watching TV (the family set is broken anyways), though as you’ll see in the video below, he does like watching DVDs of old school classics like The Cosby Show. Will there be a Last Airbender 2? How does any actor, let alone a kid, swallow mixed reviews? And finally, Ringer doesn’t go anywhere these days without his magic briefcase. Below, he entertains his new friends with a card trick.

Dude has a serious gift to fall back on if he ever tires of the acting game.
