The magazine has already picked the 18-year-old British actor as a likely competitor for "Twilight" hunk, Robert Pattinson, which is high praise indeed.

Alexander appears in his father's film, "Iron Cross," a revenge thriller starring the late Roy Scheider ("Jaws") as a retired New York cop, tormented by brutal memories of WW2.

He comes to believe his son's elderly neighbor in Nuremberg is responsible for murdering his entire family in a Polish forest in 1942.
