Variety puts out their annual list of 10 Actors to Watch...

The whole shebang can be found here, but these are the 10 names that they selected for the honor this year:
Laz Alonso
Maggie Grace
Tom Hardy
Nicholas Hoult
Rachelle Lefevre
Jeremy Renner
Alia Shawkat
Emma Stone
Michael Stuhlbarg
Christoph Waltz
-It's an interesting list, without a doubt...thoughts?


  1. I think it's a solid list. I have enjoyed Alia Shawkat ever since she was on Arrested Development, but I'm not sure if she's equipped for more that the type of supporting role she had in Whip It.

    Tom Hardy is set to appear in 2010's Inception so he is definitely one to keep an eye on and Renner, Stuhlbarg, and Waltz turn in some of the year's best performances.

  2. I can't speak for Arrested Development, but I enjoyed her in Whip It, and pretty everyone on the list is an up and comer, if they haven't already arrived

  3. It's an interesting list, and I applaud them for some inspire choices like Alia Shawkat and Michael Stuhlbarg. I'm surprised though that they don't have Carey Mulligan or Gabby Sidibe.

  4. why is Shannon from Lost in this list?

  5. I just report the news, I don't make it...

  6. She was in "Taken". She played Liam Neeson's daughter in it.
