Patrick first wrote about this week’s Man Crush a couple of months ago, but Brenton Thwaites is so damn hot I had to feature him in my weekly series. Plus, I do love my Aussie boys, especially after visiting the Land Down Under earlier this year. If you like your Bel Ami buff porn stars with some One Direction boy band appeal, you’ll appreciate this piece of legal eye candy.
Thwaites won an international search to play the male lead in the television remake of “The Blue Lagoon“. The original 1980 motion picture instantly propelled Brooke Shields and Christopher Atkins to superstardom. Unfortunately for Brenton, I don’t think the Lifetime adaptation will do the same. The remake has nothing on the original and not just because Thwaites doesn’t do full frontal like Atkins did. You’d think with Denise Richards of “Wild Things” fame as part of the cast, the film would venture off to softcore porn. Sadly, no junk shots of Brenton, but what he does show off is quite nice. There are plenty of pictures below to prove my point.
This 23-year-old actor was born in Cairns, Queensland. His acting career kicked off into high gear when he landed a recurring role in Australia’s long-running soap opera, “Home and Away“. Even though “Blue Lagoon: The Awakening” won’t make him a household name, it’s a good starting point for his North American debut. Brenton can next be seen playing the young Prince Charming in “Maleficient” starring Angelina Jolie in the titular role, set to hit theaters on March 14, 2014.
