These Photos Will Lock In Theo James as Your New Crush

Mar 12 2014 - 10:04am

The highly anticipated release of Divergent is upon us next week, which means shirtless star Theo James [1] will be front and center. The gorgeous Brit looks just as good all dressed up [2], though, as seen in the March issue of GQ. Wearing plaid and riding a bicycle, Theo proves he can look great in both a future-set dystopia [3] and present-day Nantucket. His splashy introduction to American audiences — he had a Downton Abbey cameo as Mr. Pamuk, who died in Lady Mary's bed during sex — almost didn't happen, though. The actor admits he was hesitant to do a YA project, even though he didn't exactly stray away from reading similar books growing up. "I probably pretended I was reading, like, Sartre or something, but it was all Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings," he revealed. But is Theo ready to be the next Robert Pattinson [4], with fangirl frenzy following him everywhere? Maybe, maybe not. When he was shown a fan-made montage of his Divergent scenes strung together over Justin Timberlake [5]'s "SexyBack," he exclaimed, "That's hilarious!" before pausing and adding, "Oh f*ck."

For more of Theo's gorgeous spread in GQ, pick up the issue on newsstands now.
