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:
