Sam Riley snaps

Looking enviably at ease with a wintry London backdrop, the effortlessly stylish Sam Riley starred in this recent ShortList photo shoot to promote his new film Brighton Rock (read the interview here).

As a gangster on the rise in the much-hyped British drama, Riley finally builds upon the potential he showcased in the cult 2007 flick Control, where he burst onto the scene as the doomed Joy Division frontman Ian Curtis. Just in case you didn't think he was cool enough, he's also starring in the big screen adaptation of the classic Kerouac novel On The Road, out later this year.

We're jealous, you're jealous, there's a whole load of jealousy. Sadly he's also a really nice guy. Damn it.
