Alex Pettyfer has landed the lead in I Am Number Four, a forthcoming adaptation of a sci-fi book by James Frey and Jobie Hughes!

Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg are producing. This is Alex’s first major studio movie!!

    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.

  • Leo

    I can’t believe he is only 19!

  • irdni

    i really like him at wild vhild

  • really

    19! what do they feed these kids, he looks 25 in a good manly way.

    ummmmmmmmmmmm, TASTY.

  • Lexy

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

  • Carolyn

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

  • Jules

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

  • Jen

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

  • annasaurus

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

  • maila

    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!

  • maila

    *Correction: Jace Wayland lol

  • vanessa

    hes hot.

  • Karen

    Congratulations Alex!

  • annasaurus

    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.

  • ivanka

    i love him, good luck

  • lucygoosy

    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!

  • blah

    i don’t like this douche

  • annie

    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

  • Carolyn

    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.

  • Deedz

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

  • Karen

    Happy Birthday Alex!

  • Jade

    They are filming I Am Number Four in my hometown.
    I’ve seen Alex and said hello to him a few times…oh my goodness…he is super gorgeous, let me tell you!
    I never got a chance to get a picture with him or actually get to talk to him, which sucks because he’s going to be the next teen heart throb.
