Benjamin Walker got his big break on Broadway, making major waves playing Andrew Jackson in the irreverent musical, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, which gave a rock ‘n’ role spin to early US history. It was that which got him the title role in Timur Bekmambetov’s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, which is out this Wednesday.
He hasn’t had a massive on-screen career before this big break, although he did show up in the likes of Kinsey and Flags Of Our Fathers, as well as going homoerotic in 2009′s The War Boys. However if Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter hits it big, Ben’s gonna be a huge star, and has already booked a major follow-up, starring in Ed Zwick’s big-budget supernatural Chinese-set period pic, The Great Wall.
He’s also pretty cute, so we’ve gathered some pictures of him together to drool over.
