The memorable roles of Gregory Peck

The beloved actor, who died in 2013, starred in some of Hollywood's most memorable movies. He was in classic movies like To Kill a Mocking Bird and Moby Dick, to name a few.

He won an Oscar for his role as Atticus Finch in To Kill a Mocking Bird, but throughout his untouchable career, he struggled to find the kind of roles he really wanted to play. His grandson, however, does not seem to have that problem.

The 32-year-old hottie certainly inherited his grandpa's good looks and is fast becoming a fan favorite. Ethan was recently cast to play the legendary Star Trek character Mr. Spock, originally played by Leonard Nimoy, who passed away in 2015.

But that's not why fans are getting giddy over the actor. He is fine as hell. He was reportedly already an on-screen ladies' man as early as 1999.

In Passport to Paris, he played Mary-Kate Olsen's first-ever on-screen kiss. A little bit of a downer though, he's already got a girlfriend. 

Proving his naysayers wrong

Ethan has been dating media mogul and musician Molly Dewolf Swenson for years. But this takes nothing away from his appeal. He's every inch Gregory Peck's heir.

In a 2016 interview, he admitted to feeling pressure to prove himself because of his family legacy, and because he still gets dismissed as a trust fund kid. Becoming Mr. Spock is definitely a big way to prove his naysayers wrong.
