Since the Mayan prophecy of doomsday has been put off indefinitely, we have another year of movies to look forward to. From big budget blockbusters to indie sleepers, here are 15 up-and-comers whose next starring roles may just attain them Hollywood stardom in 2013.
2013 could very well be the year of Rebel Wilson. The Australian comedian garnered a lot of steam this year with scene stealing roles in Pitch Perfect, Bachelorette, and What To Expect When You’re Expecting. Next year she’ll continue pursuing laughs in the indie film Struck By Lightning. Later she’ll be co-starring in Michael Bay’s Pain & Gain, a blackly comic crime drama starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Mark Wahlberg. Oh, did we mention she’ll be hosting the MTV Movie Awards? Wilson’s ascending stardom seems like more or less a sure thing.
