Jack O'Connell is star of Prada ad

Jack O'Connell has joined a legion of hunks to star in Prada's new menswear campaign.

The Unbroken star has posed and donned some cool threads for the Italian's label spring/summer 2015 ads, alongside Ethan Hawke and fellow rising stars, Miles Teller and Ansel Elgort.

The series of photos, taken by Craig McDean, shows Jack - currently seen as Olympic-winning athlete-turned-prisoner of war Louie Zamperini in Angelina Jolie's biopic - wearing a chunky polo-neck jumper as he drinks from a glass, holding a leather bag.

Ansel, who starred with Shailene Woodley in The Fault In Our Stars and Divergent, is photographed peeling an orange with a knife in a fitted blue shirt, brown tank-top and jeans, while Whiplash star Miles plays with a pen.

Ethan, dressed in a tailored suit, is snapped cutting up a photograph with a pair of scissors.

The Prada campaign is a major coup for former Skins actor Jack, who follows in the footsteps of actors like James McAvoy, Ben Whishaw, Christoph Waltz and Benicio Del Toro, who have all graced campaigns for the Milan-based brand.

It comes after he was announced as a nominee for the EE Rising Star Award at the 2015 Baftas, alongside Miles, Shailene Woodley, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Margot Robbie.
