TOP 10 RISING STARS IN HOLLYWOOD – As Hollywood continues to evolve, newer and younger stars enter the spotlight and steal our hearts. Some were born into fame, while others had to work for it. Nevertheless, these rising stars got to the position they are at now due to their talent, hard work, and good genes. We’ve compiled our ten actors and actresses who are sure to become superstars in the coming years.
10. Jack Reynor
To kick things off, we start with 21-year-old actor Jack Reynor from Ireland. Reynor landed his first leading role in 2012’s What Richard Did, an Irish drama centering around a jock whose act of murder brings about a long list of consequences. His performance earned him the Best Actor Award at the 10th Irish Film & Television Awards, while the film also won awards for Best Film, Best Director, Best Script, and Best Editing. Due to this success, Reynor was cast to star in the upcoming Transformers: Age of Extinction alongside Mark Wahlberg and 18-year-old Nicola Peltz. The three leads are all signed on to star in a trilogy, so expect to see Reynor filling Shia Labeouf‘s shoes. Reynor will also appear in Delivery Man, an upcoming comedy starring Vince Vaughn, where he will play one of Vaughn’s 533 children.
9. Scott Eastwood
Being the son of an internationally known Hollywood star comes with a certain set of expectations, but Scott Eastwood is ready to prove he’s got the acting chops. At age 27, Eastwood has appeared in 13 films since turning 20. Of those 13, he has been in four directed by his father, Clint Eastwood: Flags of Our Fathers (2006), Gran Torino (2008), Invictus (2009), and Trouble with the Curve (2012). He also had a small role in the recent Texas Chainsaw 3D as Deputy Hartman. His popularity should soon rise in 2014 with upcoming war drama Fury. Directed by David Ayer, the film revolves around a group of soldiers during WWII and features a cast including Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Jon Bernthal, and Michael Peña.
