Austin Abrams is an American actor, known for playing Pete in Gangster Squad, Aaron in The Kings of Summer, and Ben Starling in Paper Towns.
In July 2013, he joined the cast of a film by Kyle Wilamowski, Grass Stains. Abrams will play Hunter Gorski, a scruffy 16-year-old who pays little attention to his best friend Conrad’s first love. He is also in talks to star in Werner Herzog’s next movie Vernon God Little, based on DBC Pierre’s provocative debut novel that was published in 2003, along with Sasha Pieterse and Russel Brand. Abrams will play the title character, a good kid who feels disconnected from the world around him.
