Sam Worthington: Australia's Breakthrough Star

Rising star Sam Worthington poses with family during Australians In Film’s 2009 Breakthrough Awards held at Hollywood’s Roosevelt Hotel on Friday (May 8).

The 32-year-old Aussie actor plays amnesiac cyborg Marcus Wright in the much-anticipated Terminator Salvation . He co-leads opposite Christian Bale, Helena Bonham Carter, Bryce Dallas Howard, rapper Common and Anton Yelchin (Star Trek).

“It’s big; it’s a big movie,” Sam has said said. “It’s me and Christian. It’s my story and his story. It’s about how three guys deal with their responsibilities as men in this post-apocalyptic war zone.”

  • another film

    he also appears in las ngith a mive co pruced by satsuki mitchell (daniel craigs g/f) she of the many previous flops, including black christmas.
    strange he was the runner up to become bond too isnt it?

    he would have made a better one.

  • Noticias de famosos

    What I want to see the movie, sure it is fantastic, and is short and to be able to see it premiere.

  • Donkey Punch

    McG is such a hack director. It looks like he is trying to become the next Michael Bay (king of the hacks) by obviously ripping off Transformers.

    Can Christian Bale save this movie with his always excellent acting? Doubt it.

  • Neil

    Looks like a bore. I’m sure it will make millions.

  • mmmm…..

    Sam Worthington is hot!

  • caro

    his family must be proud of him!
    the real star of T4 is him,not Christian Bale(he’s almost a supporting role) this guy is the star of tomorrow!!!

  • kirsten

    wow, nice guy.

  • temper

    Fan reports and critics say T4 is Sam Worthingon’s movie and Bale is once again outshine. They are NOT impress by Bale’s usual intense acting and his awful Batman voice ruins the movie again.

    Worthington will rule Hollywood and he is also on James Cameron’s movie AVATAR.

  • nicole

    Christian Bale can learn real talent and class from this man.

  • xo

    Donkey Punch – McG proudly said he is a big fan of Transformers and Bay is not happy with his hacking.

    James Cameron already said on the L.A. Times interview that Sam Worthington will blow Christian Bale away. Ouch:(

    Bale better check himself in anger rehab.

  • caro

    @nicole: see his movies “the machinist”,”rescue dawn’,”yuma” or “american psycho”!!

  • nicole

    @ caro: Zzzzzzzzzz from his usual jerkness and intensity from all those movies. Critics are right too he needs to get off his Batman growl voice that sounds like Clint Eastwood.

  • leto

    what do u think, they like eachother????LOL

  • ****

    He’s hot.

  • Lori

    Just saw the new Terminator last night. And yes, I’d say that Sam stole the show. He’s one of my new heart throbs. He and Christian were both so hot!


    Worthington was THE star in Terminator Salvation. At no point during the film did Christian Bale stand out. Worthington was always the one the audience was paying attention to.

    Christian – start having another tantrum over having chosen the wrong role and personally picking an actor whose talents far surpass yours.

    Christian Bale is too cheesey to play Batman because he takes most of his roles too seriously which means unlike the previous actors who
    portrayed Batman in the ’60s the ’80s and the ’90s including Adam West Michael Keaton Val Kilmer and George Clooney. Bale definitely lacks the sense of humour that they have and Bale’s batsuits are inferior to the older ones because they don’t have a blue or even a yellow ellipse around the chest’s bat-symbol they also lack a yellow utility belt as well as a black one and a blue one along with a codpiece
    and rubber nipples. Bale’s voice of Batman is also horrific so he needs to lighten up and get a sense of humour.
