1 – Liam Hemsworth
Date of Birth: 13 January, 1990
There has been a lot of speculation about 26 year old Australian Hunger Games actor, Liam Hemsworth of late after his ex-fiancee, Miley Cyrus, was spotted wearing their engagement ring again after a three-year spell apart.
According to reports, they have rekindled their relationship and moved back in together which is good news for them but not such great news for his massive adoring fanbase!
There’s no worries though, there are plenty of opportunities to see this hottie in 2016. Independence Day: Resurgence is set to be released this year which will see Liam starring alongside Jeff Goldblum and William Fichtner in the eagerly awaited sequel.
2 – Taylor Lautner
Date of Birth: February 11, 1992
23 year old Taylor Lautner is not just an actor but a model and a martial arts artist too which would explain that oh-so-fine body he rocks so well!
He’s been a busy boy over the years with the Twilight movies plus Grown Ups 2, Valentine’s Day, The Ridiculous 6, etc. 2016 is going to be a quiet year for this Hollywood hunk but watch this space, we predict big things from him in the future!
3 – Jonny Weston
Date of Birth: 1988
If you’ve seen Taken 3, The Divergent Series: Insurgent or Chasing Mavericks, you’ll probably know who Jonny Weston is but in case you don’t, he’s an American actor who accidentally took a theatre class in school and happened to fall in love with it.
2016 is going to be an exciting year for this young Hollywood hunk and with two big movies coming out, there’s no shortage of eye candy opportunities. The Divergent Series: Allegiant is the one we’re most excited for but make sure you keep an eye out for Beyond Skyline, a sci-fi action movie that looks like it might be pretty good!
4 – Zac Efron
Date of Birth: October 18, 1987
28 year old Zac Efron has been a firm favourite with the ladies for many years now, all starting from that High School Musical business which the entire world went mad for. These days he’s established himself as quite the actor with a number of pretty impressive titles behind him. With Hairspray, The Lucky One, and Neighbors to boast about in his past, there are a few films coming out in 2016 which you’ll need to look out for.
He is currently filming The Disaster Artist with Bryan Cranston, James Franco and Josh Hutcherson, and the comedy-drama looks like it’s going to be a great hit. There’s also the eagerly awaited Dirty Grandpa coming out soon as well as Neighbours 2: Sorority Rising, and Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates which looks like it’s going to be totally hilarious!
5 – Shia LaBeouf
Date of Birth: June 11, 1986
He’s coming close to 30 but Shia LaBeouf, American performance artist, actor and director is definitely one of the hot male actors under 30 in 2016 and with the release of American Honey in 2016, a comedy drama, he’s sure to stay in our ‘crush list’.
If you haven’t seen the recent snaps of Shia watching his own movies, you definitely should. Some of his facial expressions are beyond brilliant.
6 – Ryan Guzman
Date of Birth: September 21, 1987
28 year old Ryan Guzman is an American actor and you will have seen him in movies such as Step Up: All In, Step Up Revolution, There’s Always Woodstock and The Boy Next Door.
We’re quite excited for one movie due for release in 2016 – Everybody Wants Some, and you’ll see Ryan starring alongside Blake Jenner and Zoey Deutch in the comedy abut a group of baseball players in college exploring their adulthood.
7 – Robert Pattinson
Date of Birth: May 13, 1986
Things have been very up and down for poor old Robert Pattinson with the complicated and very public breakup / makeup, will-they / won’t they relationship he had with Twilight co-star, Kristen Stewart. Thankfully, things seem to be very much on the up for our favourite vampire and less than a year ago, this Hollywood hunk took himself off the market by getting engaged to the singer, songwriter and dancer from London, FKA twigs.
We can’t wait to see the big wedding day. We wonder what dress she’ll wear? As much as we’re sad that little old Edward Cullen is no longer an eligible bachelor, we hope he’s finally happy!
8 – Alexander Ludwig
Date of Birth: May 7, 1992
Baby-faced, 23-year-old Alexander Ludwig is one of our favourite Canadians and this model, singer and actor is definitely well-known for his role as Cato in The Hunger Games.
There are rumours that he is set to star in a so-far untitled Spider-Man movie for 2017 but I guess we’ll just need to watch this space…
9 – Michael B. Jordan
Date of Birth: February 2, 1987
28 year old Michael B. Jordan is an American actor mostly known for his TV performances but it seems that recently he’s crashed out into Tinseltown and has done a pretty good job at it too!
There was Creed and Fantastic Four for 2015, and we also loved it when he guest starred on Running Wild with Bear Grylls which of course, we definitely loved. 2016 sounds like it might be a pretty quiet year for this Hollywood hottie but we’ve provided you with some good old-fashioned eye candy to keep you going.
10 – Aaron Taylor-Johnson
Date of Birth: June 13, 1990
25 year old British actor has been in so many movies over the years, we don’t even know where to start. How about Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging in 2008? Or Shanghai Knights in 2003? Kick-Ass and Kick-Ass 2, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Godzilla, Avengers: Age of Ultron… Shall we go on?
We’re quite excited for Nocturnal Adventures for 2016, a thriller-drama that will see Aaron starring alongside Amy Adams, Jake Gyllenhaal and Isla Fisher.
11 – Freddie Stroma
Date of Birth: January 8, 1987
We loved 29-year-old Freddie Stroma in the Harry Potter series of movies. You may remember him better as Cormac McLaggen?
Not content with being a Harry Potter favorite, you may also have spotted him in Pitch Perfect, The Inbetweeners 2 and even the TV series UnREAL in which he plays he part of Adam Cromwell.
2016 is enough to get us super excited as the British actor is starring in one of our favorite TV shows – Game of Thrones. Keep your eyes peeled for him as Dickon Tarly!
12 – Douglas Booth
Date of Birth: July 9, 1992
Another British beauty but this time we come to 23 year old Douglas Booth, the actor best known for movies such as the 2014 Noah with Russell Crowe, 2015’s Jupiter Ascending, Worried About the Boy in 2010 and more.
He’s been a busy boy recently and he has no fewer than four movies set to be released in 2016. Loving Vincent is a movie about the life and times of Vincent Van Gogh and will see Douglas starring alongside Saoirse Ronan and Aidan Turner. A Storm in the Starsss a romance, drama-style movie and also stars Elle Fanning, and that’s before we start talking about The Limehouse Golem and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies which, quite frankly, looks like a brilliant watch!
13 – Keiynan Lonsdale
Date of Birth: 19 December, 1991
24 year old Keiynan Lonsdale was originally born in New South Wales, Australia and has since shot to fame after his role in the 2015 movie, The Divergent Series: Insurgent. You may also have spotted him in the 2007 movie Razzle Dazzle: A Journey Into Dance, and also in a couple of TV shows too – All Saints in 2008, Dance Academy as Ollie from 2012-2013, and The Flash in 2015.
2016 will bring another movie – The Divergent Series: Allegiant and also one more – The Finest Hours in which he stars alongside Chris Pine, Casey Affleck and John Ortiz.
14 – Jack Reynor
Date of Birth: January 23, 1992
Colorado, US-born Jack Reynor is a cutie that’s for sure, but he’s also a pretty good actor too and definitely one to watch out for in 2016 and beyond.
He’s in the eagerly awaited Jungle Book: Originsset to be released in 2017 but if you can’t wait that long, there’s a few movies you should keep your eyes open for if you want to see a little more of the Delivery Man actor.
Sing Street, The Secret Scripture, HHHH and Free Fire are the titles of four movies starring Jack in 2016 – don’t say we didn’t give you enough info!
15 – Brenton Thwaites
Date of Birth: August 10, 1989
26 year old Australian actor first burst into our screens in the 2011 series of SLiDE for Fox8 but many of us will known him more for his role in Australian soap, Home and Away, in which he played the part of Stu Henderson for a year.
After moving from Australia to the US, his career has hit some pretty impressive heights and there’s been a string of awesome movies along the way including Oculus in 2013, Maleficent in 2014, and The Giver and The Signal from the same year.
2016 is going to be an exciting year for this hot male actor under 30 with the release of Gods of Egypt also starring another Hollywood hunk, Gerard Butler. There’s also the eagerly awaited Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales which is due for release in 2017.
16 – Skylar Astin
Date of Birth: September 23, 1987
New York-born singer and actor, Skylar Astin, is well known among the ladies for his part as Jesse Swanson in the hit movies Pitch Perfect and Pitch Perfect 2 in 2012 and 2015 respectively and with that beautiful smile, it’s not hard to see why.
Thankfully there are a couple of opportunities to check him out for the coming year and you’ll see the release of two films starring him – Speech & Debate and Monkey Up.
17 – Richard Madden
Date of Birth: June 18, 1986
Another one almost in the thirty and over club, 29 year old Richard Madden is a British film, TV and stage actor and you’ll probably remember him the most for his part in the hit TV series, Game of Thrones in which he plays the part of Robb Stark.
Of course, not content with being in one of the hottest TV films of our generation, he also played the deletable Prince Charming in the 2015 hit, Cinderella.
2016 will see him starring in just one movie plus a TV mini-series called Medici: Masters of Florence. Definitely keep a lookout for Bastille Day though, also starring Idris Elba, Jose Garcia and Charlotte Le Bon.
18 – Jamie Bell
Date of Birth: March 14, 1986
What’s up with the Brits for 2016? It seems that they’re leading the way in Hollywood and here’s another one that proves to be no exception. 29 year old Jamie is soon to be hitting the thirty-club but for right now, we think he’s definitely worthy of a place on this list.
We all know and love him as the kid from Billy Elliot but it seems he’s grown up quite a bit since then, starring in some of the best movies of our time. You can throw Defiance, King Kong, Jumper, The Adventures of Tintin and Man on a Ledge to some of the big ones under his belt.
2016 is going to be a busy year for this little cutie too with a couple of movies being set for release. 6 Days is a British action movie to look out for, and there’s also the sequel – The Adventures of Tintin: Prisoners of the Sun too.
19 – Jeremy Irvine
Date of Birth: July 1, 1990
Another British-born actor rocking 2016, Jeremy Irvine was born in West Hampstead, London, and made quite the debut performance with the 2011 hit movie, War Horse.
Another actor who’s been busy working away, there are a number of movies set to be released over the next twelve months or so starring this cutie. He’s currently filming The Billionaire’s Club with Emma Roberts, Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey and Suki Waterhouse, and there’s also Fallen with Joely Richardson.
If that wasn’t enough, there’s also This Beautiful Fantastic with Andrew Scott and Sheila Hancock.
20 – Andrew Bachelor
Date of Birth: June 26, 1988
You might know this guy better as ‘King Bach’ but 27 year old Canadian actor, comedian and most followed Vine-guy is certainly making a name for himself and there are a couple of movies you might want to keep your eyes out for over the next twelve months.
We’re quite looking forward to Fifty Shades of Black but there’s also The Babysitter and Blue Weekend to check out too.
21 – Nick Robinson
Date of Birth: March 22, 1995
20 year old Nick Robinson might be a baby in the Hollywood world but you’ll probably recognise his face from somewhere. He was in 89 series of the TV show Melissa & Joey as well as appearing in Boardwalk Empire, and he was also in The Kings of Summer and Jurassic World, two movies that took the entire world by storm.
2016 will see him starring in The Fifth Wave which you’ve probably already seen advertised. It looks like it might be a big hit and is certainly one we’ll be queuing up for.
22 – Will Poulter
Date of Birth: 28 January, 1993
22 year old Will Poulter is a British actor who is perhaps better known for the 2014 hit The Maze Runner. He even won himself a BAFTA for the movie – the Rising Star Award and since then has been reported to be starring in a whole string of movies which we’re all very excited for.
Maze Runner: The Death Cure comes out in 2017 but if you can’t wait that long, there’s War Machine, Kids in Love and The Revenant to check out in the meantime.
23 – John Boyega
Date of Birth: 17 March, 1992
Born in Peckham, England, you’ve probably heard of John Boyega or you have if you’re a Star Wars fan anyway.
Recently starring in the 2015 hit Star Wars: The Force Awakens, you will get another glimpse of him in the 2016 movie The Circle, a science-fiction drama which will see him alongside Emma Watson, Tom Hanks and Bill Paxton.
24 – Alden Ehrenreich
Date of Birth: November 22, 1989
Anything with Channing Tatum in it is bound to be a winner but there’s another reason to check out the new movie due out this year – Hail, Caesar! which also stars this 26 year old cute, Alden Ehrenreich.
He’s been in a few movies you might have seen over the years – Blue Jasmine, Beautiful creatures and Stoker are just to name a few!
25 – Daniel Radcliffe
Date of Birth: July 23, 1989
We all love Daniel Radcliff because of those Harry Potter movies but you can’t deny this young starlet has definitely grown up, moving away from the fluffy, easy to watch films to more hardcore, scary ones just like Woman in Black and the sequel which scared the hell out of us.
He’s another actor who’s been hidden away and working hard and there are a whole string of movies to be released over the next year. Swiss Army Man is a drama, comedy, adventure movie but if that doesn’t take your fancy, Now You See Me 2 is coming out also, another scary movie set to have us all watching from behind our hands! Dave Franco is also in this one and Jesse Eisenberg pops up to say hello too!
26 – Ansel Elgort
Date of Birth: March 14, 1994
We fell in love with this Hollywood hunk in The Fault in Our Stars but with every movie we watch, our crush on him just grows and grows.
Not just an actor but a DJ too, he’s also starring in the 2016 movie The Billionaire’s Club which we’ve mentioned a few times, and there’s The Divergent Series: Allegiant too. It would seem this hottie is fully booked for a while as there’s also a number of films set to be released in 2017!
Good news for Ansel fans, that’s for sure.
27 – Josh Hutcherson
Date of Birth: October 12, 1992
We couldn’t believe Josh Hutcherson was only 23 years old, he seems so much older than that don’t you think? An American actor originally born in Kentucky, he’s had a number of TV and film roles under his belt before hitting the big time with the record smashing Hunger Games movies.
Luckily, there’s a few movies coming out over 2016-2017 to keep you entertained if you’re a fan. Keep your eyes peeled for Backstabbing for Beginners, The Long Home, In Dubious Battle and The Disaster Artist!
28 – Penn Badgley
Date of Birth: November 1, 1986
29 year old Penn Badgley is an American actor better known for his roles in hit movies such as Easy A (which we loved), The Stepfather, John Tucker Must Die and Greetings From Tim Buckley.
He’s set to start in a movie due out in 2016 called Adam Green’s Aladdin with ex-girlfriend Zoe Kravitz but there’s also the eagerly awaited debut album from him and his bandmates in the group MOTHXR.
29 – Nicholas Hoult
Date of Birth: December 7, 1989
We’re going back to Blighty for this Hollywood hottie and you may remember him from the 2013 movie Warm Bodies, or maybe as the kid, Marcus Brewer, in the film with fellow Brit-hunk Hugh Grant, About a Boy? Either way, he’s got a string of movies coming out in 2016 so you’ll be sure to know his face by the end of it.
We’re most excited for X-Men: Apocalypse if we’re being honest but don’t forget to check out The Discovery, Collide or Sand Castle which are all coming out over the next twelve months.
30 – Michael Cera
Date of Birth: June 7, 1988
We’re heading to Canada for Michael Cera and although he’s not everyone’s cup of tea, we’ve all seen a movie starring this guy that we loved. He’s not just an actor but a musician too but you’ll more than likely remember him from the 2010 movie Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.
He’s currently in the TV show Children’s Hospital and has been since 2008 but over the next year or so, there are a couple of movies starring Michael that you’ll need to check out. Sausage Party and Human Production are both movies due out in 2016, and he’s also in the 2017 film The Lego Batman Movie and also Blazing Samurai which comes out in the same year.
There are so many amazing, hot males actors under 30 in 2016 that there were a few that didn’t quite make the list! With the likes of Chace Crawford, Douglas Smith, Nico Tortorella, Alex Pettier and Robbie Amell to keep an eye out over the coming year, we predict many move marathons coming right up!
What do you think? Were there any you think we missed? Who’s your favorite? Get the conversation going, we’d love to know what you think!
