English-born Australian Sam Worthington is undisputedly the hottest new actor in Hollywood. Out of nowhere he's landed leading roles in big budget blockbusters like Terminator: Salvation, Avatar and Clash of The Titans, which is to be released April 2, 2010 and looks rather amazing.
But is he a "serious" actor though? And is it all happening too soon? In addition to Titans, he has another film out at the end of April called Last Night also starring Keira Knightley, about a couple whom encounter extra-marrital temptations. There is also The Debt which comes out later this year and it looks to be a little on the heavier side in its story line of Israeli spies seeking revenge on Nazi War Criminals. This one stars Ciaran Hinds, Helen Mirren, Tom Wilkinson and many more. And lined up after that is a role in The Texas Killing Fields, which is about a string of unsolved murders in Texas. How's that for serious?
Although we have yet to see Worthington's true acting chops with the material he's been in, we'll be getting a clearer picture of his "worth" before long.
