After catching our collective eye with 2011's Thor, Chris Hemsworth came out of the gate swinging his big hammer in 2012 starring in three excellent adventures: April's The Cabin in the Woods, May's The Avengers and June's Snow White and the Huntsman.
Lending each of his potentially two-dimensional characters an emotional weight and irrefutable charm, Chris quickly became Australia's hottest action hero export since Hugh Jackman. Oh, and it doesn't hurt that he's painfully good-looking -- especially when cradling his newborn daughter, India Rose, in those enormous arms.
