Sam Worthington

Australian actor Sam Worthington is shaping up to be a huge movie star.

After a number of significant Australian roles and a few minor Hollywood appearances, he was cast in a leading role in James Cameron's return to 'proper' film making - Avatar, due for release at the end of 2009.

On Cameron's recommendation he was cast opposite Christian Bale in Terminator Salvation - out now and looking very good on the trailers. Sexy cyborg.

Worthington has now been cast as Perseus in a promising-sounding remake of '80s cult 'classic' Clash of the Titans. Hopefully they won't make him grow his hair but just dress him in Greek costume - i.e. very little.

Incidentally, Sam was also one of three actors seriously considered as Pierce Brosnan's Bond replacement for Casino Royale - the others being the delicious Henry Cavill and, of course, Daniel Craig.
