Extracted from GQs top 30. 30 just seems too many to click through.
Andrew Garfield – Big Break: Playing Eduardo Saverin in The Social Network. He is a bit slim for a typical Hollywood leading actor, but his build did help him land the role of Peter Parker in the Amazing Spiderman. Based on what I have seen in the thriller, the movie is going to be killer and Andy will likely ride that wave to the great leading roles.
Armie Hammer – Big Break: Social Network as the Winklevoss twins. Other Major Movies: Mirror Mirror, J Edgar. A rmie is super handsome, tall, and has a great built – Perfect for a leading man. I expect we will see a lot more of him in movies
Chace Crawford – Big Break: Gossip Girl as Nate Archibald. He stood out instantly because of his looks. People started going crazy for him, but as the series comes to a close. What will Chace do? In a way he is almost too pretty for a lot of leading roles. It’s going to be interesting what types of roles he is going to take after Gossip Girl Ends.
Darren Criss – Big Break: Glee. Other Notes: Leading Role in Broadway Production: How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Great singer and has a great look, but like Chace, it’s not very clear what he will be doing after Glee. Maybe return to Broadway or are films in the cards for Darren?
Jesse Eisenberg – Big Break: Social Network. Great portrayal of Mark Zuckerberg in the movie. Very talented and not bad looking either. He has a quirky style that seems to work for him. I expect to see more of him.
Liam Hemsworth – Big Break: Hunger Games. Although Gale didn’t really have a large role in the first book, the movie executives worked him in as many PR events as possible. Totally understandable considering he is uber HOT, but it was fun for an avid Hunger Games fan like myself because Gale really wasn’t the focus in Book 1. And like his brother his star meter is going up and plus the Hunger Games franchise is just beginning. I expect some Twilight like craziness for Gale… =)
Nicholas Hoult – Big Break: A Single Man. Played opposite Colin Firth. He is gorgeous and a great actor. Nic feels like a very indie type of actor. He has a very distinctive looks and I can easily see him as a Prada model. I hope to see more of Nic in either tv shows or movies.
Nick Jonas – Big Break: Jonas Brothers. Among the Jonas brothers, he is the one that stands out. The other ones are kind of forgettable. He is also dabbled in Broadway, but the question is what does Nick really want to do?
Robert Pattinson – Big Break: Twilight. Girls are going crazy for him and the Twilight franchise is not over yet, so Edward craziness shall continue. I still remember him as Cedric Diggory from Harry Potter. Who knew that he will become so big!
Zac Efron – Big Break: High School Musicals. He has done a good job in positioning himself well for leading man roles by bulking up. He is trying to be more dreamy vs. pretty. Big difference and it seems to be working well for him
