Anyone who thinks the red-Solo-cup–holding frat boy has become a Hollywood cliché hasn’t experienced Glen Powell’s delightfully douchey Chad Radwell on Scream Queens. And when you’re a gentleman in real life, playing a jerk has its perks.

“All these girls on the show are big up-and-coming stars,” says the 27-year-old actor, referring to the likes of Emma Roberts and Lea Michele. “Getting to break up with them over and over is pretty fun.”

2016 is a breakout year for him, with roles in the Dazed and Confused sequel, Everybody Wants Some, and in Sand Castle, set in war-torn Iraq in 2003. His role in the latter, as a loud and proud Texan, required Powell to pack on 20 pounds in three weeks. All it took, he says, was a suitcase full of protein powder and some advice he got from Sylvester Stallone on the set of The Expendables 3: “Just get your forearms and traps to bulge and you’ll look massive on camera,” he told him.

What Glenn's Wearing
Immune to wrinkles, Nautica’s sleek Tech Blazer has you covered from a weekend getaway until the moment you walk into work Monday morning. “It works with dark denim or a pair of slim dress chinos,” says Nautica’s VP of Global Men’s Design, Steve McSween. “And water-resistant fabric protects you from a light drizzle.”

Powell lamented that he didn’t pack it while shooting Sand Castle. “It’s one of those chameleon suits that help you fit into any scenario,” he says.
