CRUSHWORTHY: Rory Culkin from Scream 4
Why he's Crushworthy: Rory has the pleasure of being related to one of the most famous and successful child actors in film history. You'd think he'd learn from his big bro Macaulay's mistakes, while also following his career path. Nope. Rory's been indie-hopping from the get-go, and Scream 4 is his first studio film as a mature adult. We didn't get to fall in love with his adorable cherubic face in kiddie comedies, so we never pegged him for innocent, incorruptible characters. If we had, Rory would've never been given the opportunity to play an obsessive, morally ambiguous, movie buff, oozing with sadistic curiosity. His sexual chemistry with Hayden Panettiere was the best part of the whole film. Now, when's the last time the name Culkin and "sex" were uttered in the same sentence with good connotations?
Where you can see him next: The dramedy Hick with Alec Baldwin, Blake Lively (Green Lantern), and Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass).
