Alex Pettyfer: Ryan Gosling Better Watch His Back

Ryan, Jake, and the like best be worried. Two major breakout roles should establish Brit actor Alex Pettyfer as a major contender this year. First up, in February, he stars as the title character in the teen tome-turned-sci-fi adventure I Am Number Four, about a teenager who discovers he’s not what he seems. (He met his girlfriend, Glee star Dianna Agron, on the film’s set.) Then in March, he stars in the Beauty And the Beast riff Beastly, as, well, the beast. But it’s not as bad as it sounds, given that he’s garnering the attention of beauties Mary-Kate Olsen and Vanessa Hudgens in the film. You’ll no doubt be craving more once Pettyfer makes an impression with those two biggies, so keep an eye out in September for the sci-fi blockbuster Now.
