I don’t know him! but he’s cute and it’s always good to give new people chances so why not, good for him

Actually he is best known for being on the Aussie soap Home & Away

Isnt he that guy from Aussie soap Home and Away?

Oh, dear God, YAY! He was total hotness in Star Trek, made my puzzy clench! Hehehe! Spock too!

I can’t wait to see him in a tight suit! Hehehe! He’s ten times cuter than Bad Pitt ever was.

Sounds good to me, i used t love him in home and away !

Kim!
and yes i agree, that’s what he’s well known for, well in the UK and AU probably.

well done! just like Isla Fisher going from home and away/soap-land to Hollywood!

He was complete hotness in Star Trek. Too bad he died so quickly.
Would have been nice to see Kirk & Kirk together! LORDAMERCY

Hmm, didn’t know he was Aussie. But dear god, I bet he will be compared to Chris Pine (who share the same first name, played his father on Star Trek, and looks eerily similar) for the rest of his career. Heck, I thought the default picture of him was Chris Pine!

he’s gorgeous and manly

Nice. What a cutie. I had zero interest in Thor but now I don’t think I’d mind staring at that for two hours. lol

that’s our chris! he’s making us aussie’s proud!
do glad to see him doing so well

HE’S SEXXXXXXAY !
(:

OMG! haven’t seen him in ages since H&A! He looks different without his long hair
