From Emma Stone and Carey Mulligan to Jennifer Lawrence, Kristen Stewart and Rooney Mara, there’s an ever-expanding group of women on the cusp of adulthood who have already landed firmly on the big screen’s A-list. And while we’re all about girl power, we’ve been wondering: Where the heck are their male contemporaries? Surely the next generation of Ben Afflecks and Bradley Coopers are out there, just waiting to be mentioned on a list like this! Look no further, friends — we’ve got our eye on 13 future big-screen big deals, and have rounded them up for your analysis below. Some, like Robert Sheehan, Nick Hoult and Max Irons are part of the YA book-to-movie phenomenon. Others, like Michael B. Jordan and Miles Teller, are recent Sundance darlings. While their roles may be vastly different, they’re bonded by incredible talent (and, you know, their good looks don’t hurt anything either).
Check out their deets below so you can say you knew them when.

Last night, we covered the Hollywood Film Awards gala wearing an Old Navy dress and some chunky boots from three seasons ago. Luckily the A-listers with whom we chatted on the red carpet have impeccable taste — and skilled stylists — and posed in outfits worthy of the #1 spot on every best-dressed list on the Web. Michelle Williams (recipient of the Hollywood Actress Award), Emma Stone (honored with the cast of The Help), Carey Mulligan (Hollywood Supporting Actress Award), Rosie Huntington-Whitely and Elle Fanning were all working it last night, making us drool with envy over their dresses. And guys like Tom Felton, George Clooney and the always adorable Joseph Gordon-Levitt, suited up and smiled for the cameras too. The event, held at the iconic Beverly Hilton, is the unofficial kick-off to awards season, and the stars brought their A-game last night. It’s gonna be a long four months of parties, press, drama and dresses galore. We.Cannot.Effing.Wait.
We’ve got out favorite looks — and behind the scenes moments — in the gallery below.
Every time someone utters the words “Jeff Buckley biopic” our 15-year-old self sighs deeply and weeps into her flannel shirt. In case you grew up after the Decade the Music Died – aka the mid-90s – Jeff Buckley was a shaggy haired, bony hunk with an angel’s voice, who was destined to save post-grunge rock n’ roll (listen to “Last Goodbye” below). He released one amazing album, Grace, and then tragically and bizarrely drowned in a river while on tour in 1997, crushing the music n’ makeout-filled dreams of every depressed teenage girl lurking around her local Orange Julius with a Discman in hand. A Buckley biopic has been talked about for yearsssssss, but now there’s a director attached – the very likable Jake Scott, who most recently worked with Kristen Stewart, Melissa Leo and James Gandolfini in Welcome to the Rileys.
Robert Pattinson is rumored to be into the part and he’d be an interesting choice, because Pattinson can sing – and play guitar – quite well. Like, for reals. And with production set to start in the fall, he may be able to squeeze it in between shooting Cosmopolis in the summer and promoting Breaking Dawn come October/November. (And yes, Jake has directed Rob’s girlfriend, so it’d be all cute and family-ish.)
