Five Faces to Watch in 2007 - The Guys
Hilary Duff, Lindsay Lohan and the rest of the Hollywood crowd were all struggling to get roles in the not-too-distant past. Now it's time for a new group of young, fabulous things to take center stage. We're taking a look at the best up-and-coming actors and actresses of 2007!
Shia Labeouf - You may recognize his name from movies like Holes and I, Robot, but you might not recognize Shia Labeouf's face anymore. This kid is growing up fast and it's ready to leave his "Disney Kid" image behind. Keep an eye out for Shia in one of the three movies he has out this year: Disturbia, Surf's Up (with Jon Heder) and the much-anticipated Transformers movie.
Ryan Kwanten - He got his start playing Jay Robertson in Summerland but got his big break last year playing Howard in every horse-lover's movie, Flicka. Ryan is keeping the momentum going this year with Dead Silence and Don't Fade Away (featuring Ja-Rule and Mischa Barton).
Jake T. Austin - Jake got his start doing voice work with for films like Ant Bully and Everyone's Hero, but this year he's stepping out from behind the scenes to star in The Perfect Game. He's also signed up to join the cast of the all-new TV series The Amazing Hannigans starting this year on the Disney Channel.
Paul Campbell - Paul Campbell was a carpenter in Canada before heading to theater school and joining the cast of Battlestar Galactica. This year you can check out this out-of-this-world actor as he makes his leap to the big screen in the mystery 88 Minutes (with Al Pacino and Leelee Sobieski) or watch him flex his comedic muscles in National Lampoon's Bag Boy.
Freddie Highmore - Freddie had a good year last year (starring in the film A Good Year with Russell Crowe), and a not-too-bad year in 2005 (as Charlie in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) but 2007 is going to be his year to shine. Freddie stars in Arthur and the Invisibles, August Rush (with Robin Williams and Keri Russell), not to mention The Spiderwick Chronicles, which is due out early in 2008.
