It is my favorite magazine and I'm always excited about each issue. I'm talking about VMAN, of course. The Spring/Summer 2013 edition will be available soon (you can pre-order it here) and it features one of my all time faves on the cover: Douglas Booth. I know him since he modeled for Burberry and I was always aware of his public appearances to see how was his style. In fact, it is simple but sharp and sleek, something that goes along really well with Douglas' low profile personality.
He's now a model turned actor, I might say, a really good one. Douglas Booth did an outstanding performance as Culture Club's lead singer Boy George in the biopic "Worried About The Boy". The talent was obvious as he also did other amazing films as well: "Christopher And His Kind" and "In Love With Dickens", all of them british productions. "The Pillars Of The Earth" and "Great Expectations" were two TV series he was part of, as well. However, Douglas' biggest moment was probably "LOL", the romantic teen comedy where he starred alongside Miley Cyrus. Despite bad reviews, the remake of a french film with the same title became viral online and lots of images of the movie were TUMBLR-tastic and are now gifs and collages all around the Internet.
His upcoming project will certainly make him huge and definitely a breakout star. Douglas will play the role of Romeo in the "Romeo & Juliet" new movie adaptation with Hailee Steinfeld, Ed Westwick and Paul Giamatti as part of the cast. It is now in post-production and will premiere in October. Besides, he already did a film called "Noah" for 2014 and has landed himself the leading role for "Jupiter Ascending", which is the new project of the masterminds behind "Cloud Atlas" - Lana and Andy Wachowski. Even though the whole thing is wrapped in all kinds of secrecy, it is known that Douglas Booth will join a star-studded cast: Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum and Eddie Redmayne.
I'm really happy to see that Douglas' career is on the rise because I believe in his potential. For now, I show you this amazing editorial photographed by Bruce Weber. Hope you like it as much as I did. ;)
