Andrew Garfield stars alongside vintage hotties Heath Ledger, Jude Law and Johnny Depp in his upcoming flick, “The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus.” His quirky good looks, however, help him stand out from the crowd. And with a few high-profile projects in the works, he’s ready to get himself recognized as this week’s Hump Day Hottie.
Press play on the video below to see more of Andrew, and then keep reading for more details about him.
Vital Stats: The 26-year-old was born in Los Angeles, but grew up in England. He trained at the Central School of Speech and Drama and, like many British actors, took to the stage and worked in theater. He even won a MEN Theatre Award.
Where you might have already seen him: He’s worked a lot on British TV shows and even won a BAFTA for his work in “Boy A.” He’s appeared in the flicks “Lions for Lambs” alongside Tom Cruise, Meryl Streep and Robert Redford, and “The Other Boelyn Girl,” with Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman. Not a bad crew to be associated with!
Why you should take notice of him now: With the release of Heath’s last film, “Dr. Parnassus,” in which he plays Heath’s on-screen rival, the British babe has managed to cause quite a stir and buzz for himself. He was also excited for the chance to work with director Terry Gilliam on the project. ”It made my jaw hit the floor,” he told EW about the flick, adding, ”I grew up watching Terry’s films, and it was a special moment realizing I’m in one of those films.”
Next up, Andrew will star in “The Social Network,” the highly anticipated flick about the founding of Facebook. And, his co-stars aren’t too shabby. He’ll be working with Justin Timberlake and Jesse Eisenberg.
