Jacob Artist Shirtless, Plus He’s Going To Be Kissing Shailene Woodley [PHOTOS]

Glee needs to spend more time in Los Angeles, because we got to see Jacob Artist shirtless this past week!

It looks like his exposure on Glee (no pun intended) has gotten the handsome young man noticed. 20-year-old Artist has landed himself a plum role in Gregg Araki’s forthcoming indie film White Bird.

White Bird looks like a pretty promising film, if the production and cast are any evidence. Araki is said to be producing with Rust and Bone’s Pascal Caucheteux and Sebastien Lamercier

Shailene Woodley will star in the film as a young troublemaker whose “life is upended following the disappearance of her mother.” Woodley’s mother will be played by Eva Green. Along with Woodley, Artist, and Green, Christopher Meloni, Angela Bassett, Shiloh Fernandez, Gabourey Sidibe, Mark Indelicato and Dale Dickery will also join the film.

It is not yet known the size of the role Jacob Artist will have, but it is said that he will play Woodley’s love interest when she heads off to college.
