We’re only a month into 2014 and already there is so much to see! Not only will be experiencing the return of our favorite celebrities on the small-and-big screen (thank you, “The Walking Dead!”), but we’ll be discovering a whole host of new movie stars.
There are some from proven Hollywood royalty, others who are athletes-turned-actors, and all of them have scene-stealing potential in the new year.
Here, we list The 15 New Hollywood Heartthrobs in 2014 that you should check out!
The first red hot heartthrob you should keep your eyes on is a fan of wild parties and awkward moments…
“The Spectacular Now” star has a big year ahead of him, as he will star alongside Michael B. Jordan and Zac Efron in the rom-com, “That Awkward Moment.”
Her dazzling beauty shone through in the heartbreaking Steve McQueen-directed “12 Years a Slave”, but she’s already flaunting her sexiness on the “Movie Issue” cover of W Magazine.
Being snubbed by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association won’t stop hardcore fans from keeping their eyes glued onto this actor’s rising career. The Juilliard-trained performer already has three films lined up this year. The most intriguing is “The Two Faces of January,” which he will star in alongside Kirsten Dunst.
The cries of millions of female cinephiles were quenched when Howard University alum Chadwick Boseman crept onto the scene. As the legendary Jackie Robinson, Boseman hit a home run in the picture as the starring lead. This year will find Boseman donning the cape and yell of the late James Brown in Tate Taylor’s “Get On Up” biopic.
If her roles in “42” and “American Violet” passed you by, don’t worry, you can see the sexy Juilliard-trained actor on FOX’s “Sleepy Hollow.” The show has been picked up for a second season, but we wouldn’t mind her playing Catwoman in the upcoming “Batman vs. Superman” movie.
Michael B. Jordan
The MVP of the 2013 young actor’s class, Michael B. Jordan has swept up hearts all over the world for his portrayal of the late Oscar Grant. With his name on quite a few year-end lists, our hope is that the talented 26-year-old can up his stock by accepting an Oscar award soon.
The Oakland-born, former football star has utilized his talents to not only tell the story of a heinous happening within his community (“Fruitvale Station”), but his upcoming gig reunites him with Michael B. Jordan to take on all comers.
Just how good (and good-looking) is this English actor? In addition to being a friend to the environment, he will has the next two years jam-packed with movies starring alongside Billy Bob Thornton, Dakota Fanning, and Richard Gere. Good company, no?!
“True Blood” fans squealed when they saw their favorite star as Martin Luther King, Jr. in “Lee Daniels’ The Butler.” But that’s not all the charismatic actor has up his sleeve… the new year will find him performing as Bobby Byrd alongside Chadwick Boseman in “Get On Up.”
The hulking wrassler-turned-actor might not measure up to some, but he will be proven box office material when he stars alongside Zoe Saldana and Chris Pratt in “Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.” He will play Drax the Destroyer.
The son of actor Kurt Russell might not be on your radar yet, but this coming summer he will aim to please sports and comedy fans alike in “22 Jump Street.” He will play the college quarterback who befriends Channing Tatum throughout the picture.
The SB gang have a special place for this actress in our minds and hearts. The crazy, yet poppy performer is always a delight on the red carpet and always elicits smiles on her award-winning show, “New Girl.”
The former Hawaii’s Model of the Year has had a pretty up-and-down 2013. The new year finds him evening out with a rumored role in Zack Snyder’s upcoming untitled superhero film starring Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill.
The 28-year-old former “Twilight” star loves to perform his own stunts which is easy when you enjoy weight training, sports, snowboarding, dance, and being physically active. The strongman actor battles Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to see who is the better “Hercules” at the box office. Afterwards, he’ll suit up with Slyvester Stallone and 13 other action stars to see who’s the best in “Expendables 3.”
When you’re known around the world as the first Black actor to take home the César Award for Best Actor, then the universe is the limit. The Trappes, France-born actor will give geeky girls a ‘gasm as the time-traveling mutant, Bishop, in Bryan Singer’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”
