Move over Wilsons, Baldwins, Goodings and Fiennes, a newer crop of celebrity brothers are dominating Hollywood and making fans drool. Australian transplants, Liam and Chris Hemsworth, are arguably two of the hottest brothers in film at the moment. Liam stars in the forthcoming "Hunger Games" and Chris is known for his portrayal of Thor in the Marvel comic adapted "Thor" and "Avengers" movies.
Liam has been off-and-on-again with songstress, Miley Cyrus, while Chris is married to actress, Elsa Pataky and they are expecting their first child. The good looks don't end there. There is a third brother in the Hemsworth clan. Oldest brother, Luke, was also bitten by the acting bug and starred in several Australian TV shows. Don't get your hopes up, ladies and gents. He is married and a proud father of three. Owen, Luke and Andrew Wilson, eat your hearts out.
Twins, Cole and Dylan Sprouse, are not only adorable but practical. The former stars of Disney Channel's "The Suite Life" attend New York University while managing the vast fortune they amassed from their popular tween TV series and Sprouse Bros brand merchandise. Until recently, their merchandise was licensed through Dualstar Entertainment, owned by another twin sibling sensation, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.
Zac Efron is practically a household name, finding fame in Disney's "High School Musical" franchise, and segueing to a successful film career. What is less well known is his equally handsome younger brother, Dylan Efron. Although Dylan has not made a move in entertainment, there are already paparazzi keeping an eye on him, along with dedicated fan sites, and YouTube videos in his honor.
Funny or Die Francos
Perpetual student, James Franco, also has a lesser known younger brother, Dave. James and his brother recently made a memorable splash on FunnyorDie.com with a series of hilarious clips directed by Judd Apatow. They feature James giving acting lessons to Dave while berating him in the process. Good looks and a sense of humor obviously run in the Franco family.
Jo Bros Revisited
The Jo Bros might seem like old news but Joe, Kevin and Nick Jonas are principal members of young Hollywood and part of the newer crop of celeb brothers in the spotlight. Also, all three eventually ditched their wholesome purity rings and found a new wave of more adult-minded fans. The eldest, Kevin, married former hairdresser, Danielle Deleasa, in 2009.
