To Each Their Own...

hi all...newly 21 year old man Joey here...just wondering what actor or actress currently at least somewhat under the radar is going to explode onto the scene this year, ala Michael Cera, Ellen Page, et al

I'd personally say that if Emile Hirsch isn't already "there" from Into the Wild, he will be once Speed Racer hits this summer and attracts every little kid into cars on the planet into the theater (my little cousins are addicted to that trailer and the one to Wall-E, so that can be a hint).

Who do you guys think is going to be the next lucky soul to be branded with the "hot new thing" label?


  1. You're absolutely right about Emile! And he does not just have the blockbuster "Speed Racer", but also the high-class flick "Milk", where he can give further proof of his talent.

    It can also be a good year for Shia LaBeouf, who might establish himself as THE action star of the future with his turn as Indy's son.

    Anyway, it's always interesting to see new stars rising; future superstars in the making, so to speak!

  2. indeed...we might also see a comedy star rise...someone in the vein of Seth Rogen from last year

  3. Verbal Intercourse, uh...I don't think you can get much bigger than Leo in the 90's.

  4. I'd like to see Joseph Gordon-Levitt really come into his own very soon. He's one of the most talented young actors out there. His next release is Stop Loss and he's currently filming G.I. Joe. Plus he's got supporting roles in a couple of other films.

  5. he was also amazing last year in The Lookout
