The Rise of Karl Glusman

The fountain of youth has struck again, and this time around we give you: Karl Glusman.

Trust me when I say this: you most definitely have seen this tall, stark, and handsome man at least once in the past year.

Usually seen sporting various shades of hair colors and hair lengths, Karl Glusman made his break-through into the film industry with his lead role in Gaspar Noé’s film, Love, which premiered at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival. But the 29 year old might be more recognizable for his appearances in the 2016 thriller, The Neon Demon starring Elle Fanning and Keanu Reeves, or Tom Ford’s critically acclaimed Nocturnal Animals. Otherwise, you would likely have seen him alongside girlfriend and actresses Zoe Kravitz at various premieres or red-carpet events.

Similar to Sasha Lane, Glusman didn’t start out as an internet sensation, but he’s surely getting more and more traction from his talents. The William Esper Studio alumnus has been seen on the cover of Hercules Universal and was previously featured in Roland Emmerich’s Stonewall, Claire Carré’s Embers, and the short-film Summer House.

The Bronx-born, Portland-reared, multitalented and low-key actor doesn’t only have a knack for acting: early in his career, Glusman shot and directed the What You Think of Me poetry video performed by David Skyler. He also produced and starred in STREETS, ROADS: an homage to MY OWN PRIVATE IDAHO, and both wrote and acted in Christopher Walken is My Daddy.

Glusman has many movie and tv-series roles to come, including Gypsy, and Above Suspicion, but, in the meantime, we’ll just have to gush over him when he appears alongside Kravitz at other carpet-worthy events.
