Happy Thursday All! This week I am bringing you a male that may not be super famous, but the movies that are putting him on the map are very popular book to movie adaptions. I believe that he is well on his way to stardom!
Today I give you, Liam Hemsworth

He is the youngest brother to actors Chris and Luke. After seeing the success that his brothers had achieved, Liam sought out his own agent in Australia to have a try at his own career. He found work on TV in Australia, the UK and USA.
In 2010 he was offered his first role in a major motion picture in The Last Song. A book to movie adaption based on the novel written by Nicolas Sparks.
During The Last Song, Liam found love with his co-star. ( okay everyone... "awe" )
In 2012 Hemsworth landed his second book to movie role as the beloved Gale in, The Hunger Games. The movie is based off the book by Suzanne Collins

Over night Hemsworth went from being "Hannah Montana's boyfriend" or "Thor's youngest brother" to being Liam Hemsworth.
Liam has many movies in the works for the next few years including, AWOL, Paranoia and Empire State. The movie I am most excited to see him in is, Expendables 2, as Bill 'The Kid' Timmons.
