Young Aussie heartthrob Callan McAuliffe burst onto the international scene when he was hand-picked by director Rob Reiner for the romantic lead in his award-winning film Flipped in 2010. In 2011, Steven Speilberg, Michael Bay, and DJ Caruso featured Callan in a lead role of Dreamworks, I Am Number Four. This year, Baz Lurhman chose Callan to play the Young Jay Gatsby to Leonardo Di Caprio's titular lead role as the adult Jay Gatsby in the remake of The Great Gatsby, also starring Carey Milligan, Tobey McGuire, Joel Edgerton, and Isla Fisher. In addition, he was awarded the GQ Magazine "Breakthrough of the Year Award 2012" and is the youngest winner internationally (ever). The burgeoning star's most recent roles include "Taylor" in the independent film, Summer Night, and the increasingly relevant "Alden" in the acclaimed The Walking Dead TV series.
