Actor Will Poulter is famed for his roles in movies such as The Revenant and The Maze Runner, but - let's face it - people also know him for being the spitting image of Sid from Toy Story.

With the Halloween season upon us, the 24-year-old decided to combine banter with awareness raising by dressing up as his animated doppelganger.

He wrote: "This Halloween I thought I should respond to the comparisons with Disney Pixar's biggest bully next door and go as Sid from Toy Story!

"In addition to having a laugh at my expense I wanted to try and raise some attention for a cause I am an ambassador for! @antibullyingpro

"As this month is Bullying Prevention Month in the USA and Antibullying Week in the UK is just around the corner, I would really appreciate it if you could give them a follow before you like or share and help support the cause to make school a safer and happier place for young people.

"Thank you @antbullyingpro #HappyHalloween #AntiBullying"

You've got to applaud him for making such an important point.

A bit of pub quiz trivia for you here, that you may or may not know: Will was actually slated to play Pennywise the Clown in the IT movie.

The director of the movie Andy Muschietti explained why it didn't come to fruition in an interview with Deadline.

He said: "I was very, very intrigued by the prospect of working with Will, I always thought that he would be an amazing Pennywise. We talked a little bit about it, the idea of making the movie even though that Cary wasn't there.

"Will basically expressed a feeling that he had slowly disengaged from playing that character, that was so dark and terrifying. It was a personal decision I respected, but I was eager and willing to find my own Pennywise and that's what we did."

To be fair it's clear from his anti-bullying work that he's a sound guy, so the decision is hardly surprising when you think about it.
