The New Generation of Hollywood


While there are some great Hollywood legends that have left behind a wonderful legacy, there is a new generation of actors to be excited about. These new faces are making their mark on Hollywood and if you haven’t heard about them yet, it’s time you did.

Jim Sturgess : He has already starred in 17 movies including Cloud Atlas (2012) and Upside Down (2013) and he has 5 new projects that he is working on now. 

The Fanning Sisters: It seems that great acting is a family affair for these two. While older sister Dakota probably has more Hollywood exposure, Elle is doing quite well for herself starring in more retrospective indie films.

Jonah Hill: All grown up and a little bit slimmer, he is making the transition from comedian to starring in more serious roles. Django Unchained and The Wolf of Wall Street is a pretty good start in our book. 

Emma Stone: Our favorite new funny lady is also showing her range. From romantic comedies, drama thrillers, and big budget action movies. The fact that she got to star in multiple movies with Ryan Gosling just shows what a lucky girl she really is.


Abigail Breslin: She has come a long way  from Little Miss Sunshine. Now starring with August: Osage County, you can see that she can hold her own in such a star studded cast.

Garrett Hedlund: His meteoric rise into Hollywood has caught everyone’s attention, the fact that he can sing (as shown in Country Strong) only makes him seem better in our eyes and probably yours. 

Eddie Redmayne: You may not know the name, but probably know the face. He has had the great fortune of costarring with some great actress. He will be playing Stephen Hawking in Theory of Everything, which will premiere in 2015.  

Armie Hammer: Don’t let the fact that the Lone Ranger didn’t do so well deter you from seeing the how talented he is. Watch The Social Network, and you’ll see what we mean. 

Benedict Cumberbatch: This guy is literally everywhere. He has a legion of fans, very passionate fans. He has worked on over 30 movies in his career so far and shows no signs of stopping anytime soon.  

Jennifer Lawrence: Quite possibly Hollywood’s new “It Girl” is refreshing to see that she is still so grounded. She has shown the world that she can rock the bow and arrow in the Hunger Games movies, but can also play very complicated and more adult roles, such as her newly confirmed role in “East of Eden”. 

Hailee Steinfeld : Making your Hollywood debut with Jeff Bridges and getting nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress is a pretty great way to start. Not many people can boast those credits so early in their career. You can see her in the new Ender’s Game movie this November.
