You won't recognize Jamie Bell in 'The Adventures of Tintin'; after all, Bell's motion-capture character is the titular cub reporter, an icon of international fame going on nine decades, meaning he can't very well look like the kid from 'Billy Elliot.' (Not to fear, Daniel Craig fans; his villainous Sakharin looks exactly like the 'Dragon Tattoo' star.) But -- along with a cardboard dog masquerading as Snowy, and Andy Serkis as Captain Haddock -- Bell spent months wearing a motion-capture suit to play Tintin for director Steven Spielberg, and his work breathes life into a character that previous only lived on the funny pages. As Tintin might say, "Great snakes!"
