"He's the next big British thing. I love Jack, he's so funny. He'd be great in movies," The Sun quotes Weinstein as saying.

A source added: "Harvey thought Jack was hilarious. He's spent a lot of time in England over the years, so he gets our sense of humour.

"He reckons Jack has got the whole package - looks, wit and acting ability. There isn't really anything like him over there at the moment. It's great news for Jack - Harvey's taste is impeccable."
