PHOTOS: Aussie Actor Brenton Thwaites Gives Us A New Reason To Revisit An Old Classic

If you were born in the ’80s, chances are you not only read The Giver in grade school, but you ate that shit up. Which is why we’re pretty excited the tween mind-blower is finally making it to the big screen with some of our favorite actors like Meryl Streep, Jeff Bridges and Alex Skarsgaard. Our kinda party. But anyone who’s ever questioned the wisdom of “the Elders” knows this story really revolves around Jonas. And we have a feeling we’re going to be just as into 25-year-old Brenton Thwaites, the relatively unknown Australian actor cast in the role. Here are 18 reasons why: Brenton-Thwaites-27 bt2 6f639c8e86a9d2e506f9a7ff33276b86 malefica-2014-foto-64 tumblr_inline_mjkrbnN2TP1qz4rgp images tumblr_n969uf03kI1rpjuixo6_1280 5d726655172ad7e15ba0ac96c9fbee20_400x400 brenton-thwaites-best-photos-blue-lagoon-shirtless-03 e0a5fdd25b0450a2948428706e0f78d3 Brenton-Thwaites brenton-thwaites-1340017889 x950 Screen Shot 2014-08-12 at 4.41.51 PM

      Wow. He’s gorgeous! He’s the perfect example of robust yet sensitive youthful beauty.

      Brenton Thwaites was the only thing that made the movie “The Signal” watchable. There is a cute scene in the otherwise forgettable movie in which Thwaites realizes (spoiler) that his legs have been replaced by robotic legs and he then checks to see if his dick is still there. Thwaites’ character is running faster than the speed of sound and his robotic legs are flaming AND YET, his shorts DON’T burn / tear away

      I have always been told, Australia is a land of convicts shipped there by Great Britain. With all the genuinely “nice guys” and “nice girls” coming out of Australia, I kinda have to wonder if it was the convicts that shipped off the dirt of England. :D

      @BerdacheBear: Goes to show what happens when you take some Brits and Dutch, and give them sunshine for a few centuries! They bake up beautifully.

      I used to watch Brenton in HOME AND AWAY, with several other stunning young actors, and wonder what it would take for him to be a hit on these shores. This actor can really deliver, and the closer the camera gets, the more you’ll believe anything he says.

      I like Aussies, but, “I”ll take Manhattan, the Bronx, and Staten Island too”…also Brooklyn and Queens.
