Thwaites is a rising stars who has been waiting for a role like this to land. He was up for the male lead opposite Mark Wahlberg in Paramount’s “Transformers: Age of Extinction” before Jack Reynor got it and was in the running for a big role in the new “Pirates of the Caribbean” film before its production was pushed.

Thwaites is repped by WME and Industry Entertainment.
