Alfie Allen best known for his long running role as Theon Greyjoy in HBO’s Game of Thrones is set to appear in two new projects.

The first is JoJo Rabbit a WWII satire directed by Taika Waititi. It follows a young boy raised in a Hitler Youth camp who’s confronted with a decision when he learns his mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a young Jewish girl in the house. Waititi plays the boy’s invisible friend, a version of Hitler. Sam Rockwell plays the Nazi Captain Klenzendorf of the kid’s youth camp and Allen will play Finkel, second in command to Rockwell’s Captain.

The second is How To Build A Girl, which stars Alfie Allen opposite Beanie Feldstein in the Coky Giedroyc-directed film. Feldstein plays Johanna Morrigan, an opinionated and overweight girl desperate to leave her hometown, who remakes herself as the badass music critic Dolly Wilde. She quickly gains notoriety as an enfant terrible, but is this girl she built really who she wants to be? Allen will play John Kite, a rock star who enters Johanna’s life when she is set up to interview him.
