Kit recently opened up on why he decided to take the role of Milo in Pompeii.

“This was a great opportunity to be a leading man,” Kit told The Washington Post. “It’s a genre I know and have worked in. It’s not going to be a wildly different character, it’s not a particularly character-driven role, but it’s an opportunity to be a leading man, to do a body transformation. And I had lots of things I wanted to do within it.”

FYI: Kit is wearing Levi‘s jeans.

    He’s one of those guys that are actually beautiful and not merely handsome or pretty. And he knows how to dress. I hope to see more of him in the future.
