Meet six young up-and-coming actors and actresses who are sure to heat up the screen in 2002. Kidzworld predicts you'll be seeing a lot more of this gang so check 'em out!

The Guys


Tom Welling

25 year-old Tom Welling equals H-o-t-t, hot with a capital H! This dark haired hottie from Putnam Valley, New York plays the teenage Clark Kent (as in Superman) in the WB hit, Smallville. He's a far cry from the nerdy Clark Kent in the Superman flicks. When Smallville breaks for four months you can bet Tom Welling will dig into another project.


Shane West

This cutie stars opposite Mandy Moore in A Walk to Remember and on the ABC drama, Once and Again. He even popped up for a cameo in Ocean's Eleven as himself. Aside from acting, 23 year-old Shane West plays the guitar, sings and writes for his band, Average Jo.


Glenn Howerton

Glenn Howerton has an extensive theater background but is pretty new to the tube. He plays wannabe musician, Corey, in the new Fox series, That '80s Show. Glenn Howerton can also be seen in the upcoming TNT movie, Monday Night Mayhem in 2002.

The Gals


Laura German

You'll probably want give Laura a smack if you caught her in A Walk to Remember with Mandy Moore and Shane West. The 23 year-old plays a really mean chick who torments Mandy's character and even pastes Mandy's face on a porno photo and passes it around school. Nasty! Catch Laura German playing a paraplegic in an upcoming indie flick called Everything Is Fine.


Elisha Cuthbert

18 year-old Elisha Cuthbert plays Kiefer Sutherland's daughter in the new series 24. The Calgary born actress, who got her start modeling, was a co-host on Popular Mechanics for Kids when she was just 15. Catch Elisha Cuthbert in her first starring role this spring (tentative April 2002) in the TV movie, Lucky Girl.


Taryn Manning

You may have caught Taryn playing Kirsten Dunst's best friend in last year's Crazy/Beautiful. The talented Arizona native also sings in a band with her brother called Boomkat. David E. Kelly was so impressed with Taryn's singing that he wrote a special episode of Boston Public just for her. Get set to see Taryn Manning in a small role in Eminem's autobiography, 8 Mile as well as Britney's debut flick, Crossroads.

    According to me Hermione and Harry make a better couple than  Hermione and Ron. But also, if  Hermione and Harry were together than Ron would be alone as he would have no one else to go with. Also the  Hermione and Ron being together adds a new twist to the story as they were always seen fighting and did not seem to get together much.  Also the chemistry between Harry and Ginny cannot be overlooked.
