Nicholas Hoult is hardly a Hollywood newbie, but we would have never guessed just how adorable this kid star would grow up to be—even in zombie form. And this week, the “Warm Bodies” star just might be one of the hottest members of the walking dead. In fact, he’s so hot that we’ve dubbed him this week’s Hump Day Hottie.
Check out this dreamy photo of Nicholas, and keep reading for more details about him!
Vital stats: This 23-year-old grew up in England (we bet the accent gave it away!), and it would seem that acting is in his DNA. He’s related to British stage and screen star Anna Neagle. This would explain why all that eye acting comes so naturally to him. BTW, Nicholas is reportedly back on the dating scene after ending things with “Hunger Games” star Jennifer Lawrence.
Where you might have already seen him: You may best remember a young Nicholas as the star of “About A Boy,” where he played the pesky kid who just wanted to be Hugh Grant’s best mate. He’s also made a name for himself with films like “The Weather Man,” “A Single Man” and, of course, “X-Men: First Class.” And we definitely won’t forget to mention he starred on the original version of the teen show “Skins.”
Why you should take notice of him now: This week Nicholas will have us gushing over his hot undead-ness in the zombie-themed comedy “Warm Bodies.”
And, as it turns out, he’s also bound to stay busy thanks to parts in highly anticipated flicks like “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “Jack the Giant Slayer.”
Until next week, when we choose another Hump Day Hottie, you can salute Nicholas by gawking at the photo above!
