Meet Brenton Thwaites, the Star of The Giver and Your New Crush

22 July 2014 4:22 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

We're less than a month away from The Giver's Aug. 15 release, and that means it's time to familiarize yourself with the star of the big -creen adaptation. Brenton Thwaites plays Jonas, the young hero of Lois Lowry's famous novel, opposite Jeff Bridges. If you haven't heard of him, you probably didn't catch his run on the Australian soap Home and Away - the same show on which Chris Hemsworth, Isla Fisher, and Guy Pearce got their big breaks. He also turned up in Maleficent this year as Prince Phillip, but when we caught up with him recently, we really just wanted some intel on The Giver. Don't be jealous, but he totally jammed out with The Dude. Popsugar: Did you have any hesitation signing up for an adaptation of such a beloved book? Brenton Thwaites: No, my only concern in the beginning was my age. We worked »

Spinoff Online caught up with Bracey – who began his career in the Australian TV series "Home and Away" and played Cobra Commander in "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" – making the Hollywood red-carpet rounds just days before he was set to start shooting his role as the FBI agent who infiltrates a cadre of thrill-seeking surfers/bank robbers (led in Alcon Entertainment’s remake by Edgar Ramirez). He revealed that the characters once brought to life by Keanu Reeves »

All the Questions You Have About The Giver, Answered

16 May 2014 2:11 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

You may have read Lois Lowry's critically acclaimed The Giver back in high school, but do you actually remember any of it? The movie adaptation, starring Jeff Bridges and Brenton Thwaites, will be out on Aug. 15, so it's time to brush up - or learn about it for the first time. Here's everything you need to know, and once you're caught up, check out the trailer. Where are we? The Giver is set in a dystopian society in which all people are basically the same. Residents are committed to preserving "sameness," because being different is dangerous. As a result, there is little to no individuality, and everyone is assigned a job that will best serve the community. What if they're not into their job? Then they're "released" from society, which is a mysterious way of saying they're banished. No one really knows what happens outside of the community, so it's the ultimate punishment. »

It's ended! Twitter can now go to rest, knowing that it did its job: howling in 140-character chunks at no one in particular about a thing we could all just be watching in silence.

Thanks for sharing and commenting below if you did. It kept Alex and myself from tearing our fingernails out.

It's official. Scott Cam's got the biggest deck in Australia. »
