Behold these glorious black-and-white photos of Alexander Ludwig doing classic Abercrombie & Fitch male-model duties, like attempting topless push-ups with a puppy chilling on his back, or giving a serious model face to the camera with said puppy tossed oh-so-protectively over his built shoulder. The Canadian actor-slash-model will be appearing on the History Channel's Vikings, and once played the bloodthirsty, blond Cato in The Hunger Games, in a very tight shirt. We'd like to believe that a shirtless hangout with adorable dogs is just something he does in his free time. But alas.
