3. Liam Hemsworth

Following that, he’ll be taking his place in one of the starriest action casts ever assembled when The Expendables 2 arrives in August 2012. Trust us, he won’t be in big brother’s shadow for long!
2. Josh Hutcherson

Why So Hot? As well as appearing alongside Vanessa Hudgens and The Rock in sequel Journey 2, Hutcherson will play Peeta Mellark in teen action franchise The Hunger Games. His character is an ally of Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss Everdeen and one third of a love triangle involving Liam Hemsworth’s Gale Hawthorne. It’s like Edward vs. Jacob all over again…
