Chadwick Boseman
Not only does Boseman hold his own next to Harrison Ford in the Jackie Robinson biopic 42 (out April 12), he also has the acting chops and natural charisma needed to portray the baseball legend and civil rights icon.

Alice Englert
The 18-year-old daughter of Oscar-nominated director Jane Campion stars in Beautiful Creatures (out Feb. 13), a page-to-screen adaptation of a popular YA series that could be a launchpad for Englert’s own supernatural franchise.

Theo James
The Brit has appeared in varied projects, from Downton Abbey to Underworld: Awakening. But his next gig, CBS’ crime drama Golden Boy (costarring Chi McBride and debuting Feb. 26), should help push him to the next level.

A$AP Rocky
Mixtape sensation Rocky is often the best part of lesser rappers’ albums. The Harlem native has loaded up his solo debut, Long.Live.A$AP (out Jan. 15), with hard-hitting beats and killer guest spots from fellow hot breakouts Kendrick Lamar, 2 Chainz, and more.
