Actor Ellar Coltrane won over Hollywood in 2014 with his breakout role in the critically acclaimed (and award-winning) film "Boyhood," and now the 20-year-old has his sights set on doing the same with the fashion world.

On Thursday, top modeling agency Wilhelmina announced that it has signed Coltrane to its men's board, and that its team will actively seek out editorial and endorsement opportunities for him within high fashion. Although he's new to the scene, Coltrane already has an impressive resumé when it comes to modeling: Hedi Slimane shot him for the most recent issue of V Man, and he's slated to appear in both I-D magazine’s 35th anniversary issue and Paper’s annual "Beautiful People" issue. According to a press release, he also has a shoot on the books with Bruce Weber for L'Uomo Vogue, which will take place over the summer.

With so many young Hollywood talents crossing into the fashion realm — the most notable examples of late being Ansel Elgort, as well as Miles Teller, who posed for a number of editorials and the spring Prada men's campaign following his role in "Whiplash" — we're curious to see how this new aspect of his career plays out.
