I spy with my little eye … Taylor Swift’s hot younger brother, Austin Swift. The 24-year-old Notre Dame grad made his official (albeit brief) acting debut in the trailer for the upcoming tech thriller I.T.
In the film, Piece Brosnan stars as Mike, a business owner whose I.T. consultant starts to stalk his daughter (played by Stefanie Scott) and endanger his company and his life. The hacker creepily watches every room in Mike’s home and even takes control of his camera phones, planes and every technological device he owns.
Austin, who plays a character named Lance, makes a superbrief appearance in the clip, but if you look closely around the 1:30 mark, you’ll spot him holding up a phone in front of Scott. If he’s any bit as talented as Taylor, he’s bound to knock his first supporting role out of the park.
Back in September when the up-and-coming actor filmed the flick, his big sis gave him a proud shout-out on Instagram. “My brother @austinkingsleyswift just acted in his first movie and I’m all proud and stuff,” the pop superstar, 26, captioned a pic of Austin driving a classic car.
The two siblings seem superclose. He’s accompanied Swift to several star-studded events, including the 2016 Vanity Fair Oscars party, the 2016 Grammys and the 2015 Billboard Music Awards. In December, Austin turned heads when he made his official red carpet debut sans Taylor at the Star Wars: The Force Awakens premiere.
Austin’s also had Taylor’s back since the beginning of her infamous feud with Kanye West. In February when the rapper first released his track “Famous,” which included a line that referred to the “Wildest Dreams” singer as “that bitch,” Austin posted a video to Instagram of himself tossing his Yeezy sneakers in the trash.
I.T. hits theaters and video on demand on September 23.
