Jeremy Sumpter: 'To Die Would Be A Big Adventure'

Friday Night Lights star Jeremy Sumpter goes shirtless for a spread in Troix Magazine‘s latest issue.

The 21-year-old actor, who’ll next be seen in the upcoming movie Soul Surfer, also posed in bed with Twilight‘s Christian Serratos.

Here’s what Jeremy had to share:

On his “to die would be a big adventure” tattoo: “It is the most important line that I have ever delivered in a movie and it means a lot [to] me. I’ve always had a fear of death but realize that when I do die, I will just go on to a new adventure.”

Oh his dream role: “To star as an action hero in a feature film.”

On his idea of a dream girl: “She would be beautiful, someone who loves sports and likes to have a lot of fun but can also take the time to chill.”

On the one person he’d love to work with: “Robert De Niro because it’s always good to work with the best.”

    Who is this man?? And that tattoo looks kind of weird

  • Ava

    Well, he doesn’t seem at all vapid, does he?

  • Catchy

    he played peter pan in 2003 movie ‘peter pan’, kinda his biggest role…

  • amy

    When I saw him, I immediately recognized him as Peter Pan! He was so cute then and still is now!

  • Lilakoi Moon

    @Catchy: OMG! I knew that was him! Damn, how time flies. I remember going to the theater back in 2003 and I thought the little guy who played Peter Pan was very cute but looked too young for me lol. But he’s 21 and I’m turning 20 soon so I guess I was wrong :D … He grew up nicely (still a little thin but oh well). I actually love the tattoo. Lol @ his dream girl, asking this question is quite stupid since they’ll never get their perfect girl anyway….. I’m looking forward to see his work.

  • darja

    his bare chest reminds me of my pet rat’s forehead!

  • http://j ivanka

    omg i had this huuuuge crush on him when Peter Pan came out and now he is all grown up :) but why with christian in that photoshoot?

  • Buzzy

    Scrawny, pale and hairless. Good thing he’s got that white trash tatt to make himself even more unappealing.

  • Claire

    That is exactly the same tattoo (same quote, same spot) that I’m thinking of getting. But, I have a very different reason for it.

  • demetrius

    Christian Serratos looks stunning in these photos!

  • dreamer

    I saw him in a few other movies since Pan but boy he has grown up now. guess he took the time off to do other things hope he is around more now since he is older.

  • Two cents

    Hmmm – next?


    Twink of the week. It’s all good. (-;

  • poppy

    They look great! Christian is so beautiful.

  • nancy

    Been following her for a long time. Christian is fabulous!

  • William Brooks

    well thats HOT. Even though he’s of age now it would still make me vary aware that I was banging Peter Pan (good thing I’ll never have to worry about being in that situation).

  • todd

    Christian and Jeremy look so sweet in the one photo with the sheets pulled up. Reminds me of I Love Lucy for some reason.

  • grapeape

    Where can we see the rest of the photos?

    Would’ve been nice if he used the original line from Peter Pan: “To die would be an awfully big adventure.”

  • Brian F

    @Brian F:

    Scratch that – I see the tattoo is correct and the article is wrong…

  • http://justjaredjr. alessia

    hai capito a peter pan ! pure con la sigaretta in bocca ahaha. . ma vatti a mettere i pannolini . . .

  • almomsen


    OMG me too!! I’ve been meaning to get that tattoo for along time and I really like him so when I saw this I was extremely happy!!!

  • stef

    i think the tattoos is from peter pan’s quotes

  • fishiiee

    err the quote from peter pan is actually, “to die would be an awfully big adventure”…i would think jeremy of all people would get that right -_-

  • Mallory

    Would be so much cooler if he used the actual quote from Peter Pan. “To die will be an awfully big adventure”. “WILL” people “WILL” not “WOULD”.

  • sammo

    What a lame-brain! All tattoos are stupid. This one particularly so. It is not deep or meaning full. It is a lie and a stupid line from a movie. Ha, ha. What is wrong with people?

  • Izabella Badica

    I speak spanish and I understood a little bit of your italian! cool italian is going to be easy to learn

  • http://laurenadamczyk lauren adamczyk
