Toby Hemingway has managed to capture the attention of music lovers thanks to his starring role in Taylor Swift's "Mine" music video. The English towhead will certainly get us to the theater later this year thanks to his work in the darker, "Black Swan." For now, however, he's this week's Hump Day Hottie.
Press play on the video below to see more of Toby, and then keep reading for more details about him!
Vital Stats: 27-year-old Toby was born and raised in England until he turned 13, and then he and his mom (as well as his big brother) moved to California. After he graduated from high school, he studied drama in New York City at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. So, is he dating anyone these days? He's rumored to be seeing pop superstar and "Mine" co-star Taylor Swift. (Maybe he should ask former Hump Day Hottie Lucas Till for some advice!)
Where you might have already seen him: He's flown relatively under the radar the last few years mixing projects in TV like "CSI: Miami," "Bones" and "Summerland," as well as more high-profile big-screen projects like "The Covenant" and "Feast of Love."
"I saw 'Feast of Love' and just loved that movie and thought Toby was so great that I thought it would be perfect to put him in the video," Swift has said about his past film work. "I was doing some more research and watched another movie he was in called 'The Covenant.' I've got this crazy 13 lucky thing, and he walks on screen for the first time wearing a sweatshirt with a 13 on it! That was the deciding factor. It wasn't really up to me, it was about the number."
Why you should take notice of him now: These days he's got everyone's attention thanks to his star-making turn in Tay Tay's "Mine" video, where he plays her love interest and manages to get her down the aisle and start a family with the singer. Next up, he'll have a role in Darren Aronofsky's much-anticipated ballerina flick "Black Swan." Also, the internets tell us you should expect to see him in "Street," "Playback" and "Into The Darkness."
