Congratulations Alex – you continue to grow as an actor and this just proves it. I can’t wait for Beastly. BTW – you were amazing in Tormented.

You go Alex. I have been a fan since Tom Brown. I knew you would make it big.

Alex – what is the other movie??? I can’t wait for Beastly.

He looks so much older in pictures than he actually is.

Congrats to him…. cute guy for sure, doesn’t look 19, looks older.

He looks so much older than his age. He doesn’t look like he could pull off posing as a high schooler.

I watched him in Tom Brown Lexy, but I wasn’t a huge fan until Stormbreaker.

I want him to be big, but not big in the way Rob is, I want him to be big because of his acting, he is a great actor. Not just little girls being obsessed with him!

I hope the other movie he is in talks to be in is Mortal Instruments! He is the perfect Jace Wayward!

*Correction: Jace Wayland lol

NEEDS TO PLAY JACE WAYLAND!

Congratulations Alex!

Mortal Instruments is a compilation of better fiction and fanfiction. The author ripped everything off from her own Harry Potter fanfiction love triangle involving Harry, Hermione and Draco. She’s a fraud who’s been called out and the fact that they’re making it into a movie is a reflection of the crappy direction Hollywood literary adaptations are going. It’s too late to jump on the young adult supernatural train because it’s already dying out.

i love him, good luck

If Gough and Millar are writing the script the goodlooking alien will most probably end up being a clueless whiner – just like they made the teenaged Clark Kent in Smallville. Ugh!

i don’t like this douche

ow @annasaurus.. i know you.. creepy twilight fans…, just get out, this one is for Alex.. and Spielberg is a big name.. happy for his carrier

So someone calling themselves Blah calls Alexs a douche – yeah right.

Come up with a better insult for Alex – he could care less. You are just a jealous hater.

Good for him.
Too bad I’m over him. -sigh- =/
