Fin Argus has successfully broken into mainstream Hollywood with his lead role in the movie 'Clouds'. Released on October 16, 2020, 'Clouds' – which stars Argus alongside Sabrina Carpenter, Madison Iseman, Neve Campbell, Tom Everett Scott and Lil Rel Howery – has been directed by Justin Baldoni (who also directed 2019's 'Five Feet Apart'). 'Clouds' has been written by Kara Holden from a story by Holden, Patrick Kopka and Casey La Scala.

But, what's grabbing the attention of viewers is the performance of 22-year-old Argus who plays Zach Sobiech, the real-life singer-songwriter and member of the band A Firm Handshake who died of complications from osteosarcoma in May 2013. Sobiech, who recorded the song 'Clouds' about his battle with cancer in December 2012, gained popularity online with the track amassing over 3 million views at the time of his death.

Fans have been thoroughly impressed by the performance of Argus as the late musician and have showering praises on him on Twitter. One fan of the movie tweeted to Argus saying, "you're so f***ing talented," and then added, "What the f**k, you are so talented it f***ing hurts." Another user, praising Argus, wrote, "OMG he did it again! Fin Argus, I'm really proud of you for this perfect boy, you really gave us Zach essence and was so beautiful, I'm sure he's grateful for that," while one more fan added, "Fin Argus, I am insanely proud of you. I literally can't put those feelings into words but you deserve this so much. I BAWLED over 'Clouds'. Such a beautiful, beautiful film. I love you so! Also here's me after finishing the movie."
