Ladies, keep your eyes open for Aussie hottie Chris Hemsworth, who is steaming up Hollywood with his role as our new favorite hunky superhero in the Marvel film Thor.

The 26-year-old actor, born in Melbourne, Australia, is the older brother of Liam Hemsworth, whom you may recognize as pop princess Miley Cyrus’ love interest in the film The Last Song.   

After finishing his studies at Heathmont Secondary College, Hemsworth made his big break in Australia in 2004 when he was cast as Kim Hyde in Home and Away, a popular soap opera that also served as a start for actors Heath Ledger, Isla Fisher, and Guy Pearce.  

In 2005, Hemsworth won a Logie award for Most Popular Male Talent due to his role in Home and Away.  His growing fan base landed him a spot on the Australian version of Dancing with the Stars in 2006, though he and his partner, Abbey Ross, were eliminated after nine episodes.

Hemsworth made his debut in the American movie scene in the 2009 J.J Abrams film Star Trek, playing the small role of George Kirk, father of James T. Kirk (Captain Kirk), the movie’s main character played by actor Chris Pine.

He also starred in the 2009 vacation thriller A Perfect Getaway, opposite Marley Shelton, Steve Zahn, and Resident Evil star Milla Jovovich.  His role as superhero Thor is his first major role in the U.S., and Hemsworth has also signed on to be a part of the highly-anticipated 2012 film, The Avengers.

Look for the sexy Hemsworth in Thor, which also stars the lovely Natalie Portman, in theatres May 2011.
