In the July issue of GQ, actor Benjamin Walker — star of the upcoming “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” — strikes a pose in a becoming raglan sweater and some seriously rugged gloves. Absent an explanation, we can only assume he’s either iron-mongering or getting ready to brand a steer.
The 30-year-old actor, who also starred in Broadway’s “Bloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson,” is suddenly one of Hollywood’s most-buzzed-about faces. Not that he needs to get used to the spotlight; he’s married to Mamie Gummer, daughter of the iconic Meryl Streep.
The best thing about the GQ piece — at the end, Walker asks the GQ reporter a favor: “If we meet again in a few years and he’s turned into a douchebag, would I, you know, tell him?”
“Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” opens Friday (June 22).
