Alexander Ludwig 'Stands Tall' for JJ Spotlight! (Behind the Scenes Photos)

Alexander Ludwig keeps it cool while posing for a photo in this exclusive behind the scenes pic from the latest edition of the Just Jared Spotlight Series.

The 22-year-old actor sported a few pairs of Creative Recreation shoes for the photo shoot, which was produced at a private residence in Beverly Hills. He even took a dip in the pool – in his clothes!

Alexander is starring in the new football drama When the Game Stands Tall, which hits theaters everywhere on Friday (August 22). The film follows a high school football team that went from obscurity to a 151-game winning streak that shattered all records for any American sport.

You may recognize Alexander from his roles as Cato in The Hunger Games, as one of the Navy SEALs in the Oscar-nominated movie Lone Survivor, and as the son of David Spade in Grown Ups 2. He can currently be seen on the second season of the hit History Channel series Vikings.

In case you missed it, Just Jared hosted a screening of the movie alongside Alexander and his co-stars Matthew Daddario and Ser’Darius Blain.

Make sure to check back on Thursday for our full exclusive Alexander Ludwig photo shoot and interview!

Meet Dylan O'Brien at JJ's 'Maze Runner' Advance Screening!

Just Jared is hosting an advance screening of the highly anticipated book-to-screen adaptation of The Maze Runner and we want you to be there!

We will be joined at the screening by the film’s stars Dylan O’Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Will Poulter, Thomas Brodie-Sangster and Ki Hong Lee for a Q&A session. One lucky fan is even going to win a special meet-and-greet with the cast along with reserved seating for the screening.

WHEN? Friday, August 22 @ 7:30PM
HOW? RSVP window has closed due to demand!

Here is the synopsis for The Maze Runner: When Thomas (O’Brien) wakes up trapped in a massive maze with a group of other boys, he has no memory of the outside world other than strange dreams about a mysterious organization known as W.C.K.D. Only by piecing together fragments of his past with clues he discovers in the maze can Thomas hope to uncover his true purpose and a way to escape.

The movie doesn’t hit theaters until September 19 so you’ll get to see it nearly a month before everyone else!

Outlander's Sam Heughan Takes JJ's Spotlight - Scotland Edition! (Exclusive Pics)

Sam Heughan couldn’t be any hotter in this exclusive new pic from the latest edition of the Just Jared Spotlight Series.

The 34-year-old Scottish actor takes the lead in the brand new series Outlander, which was shot in his home country. The show has been getting absolute rave reviews and is a total must-see. Be sure to tune in this Saturday (August 9) at 9/8c on Starz to catch this heartthrob in action as Jamie Fraser.

Sam was photographed at the historic Dumbarton Castle, which has been in existence as far back as 1500 years! Fun fact about the castle, it sits atop a volcanic rock overlooking the Firth of Clyde. The castle has also acted as a refuge for royals over the years.

During our interview with Sam, we chatted about his upbringing in a rural section of Scotland, being named after a Lord of the Rings character, his favorite Scottish pasttime (hint: it’s not golf!), and of course, Outlander.

A big thank-you to Scotland’s National Tourism Organization for helping to facilitate the shoot and to Historic Scotland for giving us access to Dumbarton Castle.
