Hemsworth is famously known as the boyfriend of Miley Cyrus, as they met on the set of The Last Song. But, the actor truly made a name for himself when he scored the casting coup of the decade: Appearing as Gale Hawthorne in The Hunger Games.

The original Expendables film was straight out of the mind of its star: Sylvester Stallone. It starred a who’s-who of action stars from another era including Dolph Lundgren, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke, as well as upstarts Jet Li and Terry Crews.
