He continued to model as well, lending his image to campaigns for British clothing company Burberry. His film career went on unabated playing opposite Emma Roberts in "Wild Child" (2008) and starring in the horror-comedy "Tormented" (2009).He had another crack at leading a big-budget vehicle, starring in the sci-fi thriller "I Am Number Four" (2011) as an alien hiding on Earth.
