Liam Hemsworth's career is about to take off. Not only is he starring in the upcoming 'Hunger Games' film, but now the 22-year-old has been cast as the lead in the romantic drama 'Timeless.'

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Australian actor will work with 'Salt' director Phillip Noyce on the movie, which "follows a man's efforts to develop a scientific breakthrough that will turn back time after his wife dies."

Liam can definitely hold his own in a romantic film, as evidenced by his performance in 'The Last Song' with girlfriend Miley Cyrus, but he's clearly diversifying his roles. In addition to 'The Hunger Games,' Liam can be seen in 'The Expendables 2' this August.
