First, we want to start off by saying Happy birthday, Alden Ehrenreich and Jamie Campbell Bower! They just turned 23 and 24, respectively. But sharing their date of birth isn’t the only thing they have in common; they’re each set to star in one of 2013’s biggest young adult book-to-movie releases: Beautiful Creatures and The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. So, to stay true to our favorite celebrity birthdays, we want to do something special — like pit them against each other (in a playful manner, obviously)! Which one has what it takes to be the next “It” guy?

Let’s start with Alden, who plays the male lead in February’s witchy flick, Beautiful Creatures. When we met him on the Louisiana set, he was nothing short of adorable when talking about his on-screen love, Alice Englert, and being a part of the next Twilight. Watch him as Ethan Wate in the film’s second trailer here:

Then there’s Jamie, who plays confident Shadowhunter Jace Wayland in The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. He’s been in his share of YA fantasy movies — hello, Twilight and Harry Potter! — he’s a total jokesterand he’s currently dating on-screen love interest Lily Collins. Awesome written all over him, right? See him in action here:

So, who do you choose between Alden and Jamie? Is there another actor who you’d call the next big thing? Tell us in the comments and make sure to vote in our poll!

    Although its nice of people to vote for jamie and i think he’d appreciate that people have taken the time to vote for him.
    Yet i cant see him wanting to be the next ‘it guy’ to be honest. He’s just not the fame-hype-enjoying kind of guy. He’s too grounded and normal.
    But still he’d probably appreciate the love!

    Well… I’m totally in LOVE with both series and both of them! They are super hot and they are bringing to life two of the best male characters out there. But is you are forcing me to choose I would have to go with Jamie! I love his sense of humor and ofcourse his looks…I have no doubt that he is going to be the perfect JACE!! I stil love you though Alden!

  • Bell
