What's a Nicholas Sparks movie without a hot male lead, right? We've partnered with The Choice to help you get to know the latest one a little bit better.
If you haven't yet heard of Benjamin Walker, get ready, because you're about to. The actor (you might have seen him in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter or In the Heart of the Sea) is set to appear as the leading man in The Choice, Nicholas Sparks's latest romantic drama adaptation, alongside Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies). The film centers on Ben and Teresa's characters as neighbors who end up falling in love but not without some tearjerking moments along the way. Of course, no Nicholas Sparks movie is complete without several shirtless, steamy scenes. And from what we've seen so far in the trailer, it's going to be a while before we can get Ben out of our minds. Click through for five reasons he's making us swoon, and be sure to catch a showing of The Choice in theaters Feb. 5.
