Every decade or so, Hollywood seems to get an influx of new talent. These actors and actresses appear seemingly out of nowhere, win the hearts of audiences, and before you know it, are the new A-Listers. Some actors achieve fame on television before jumping into feature films, others jump right into the film world and stand out amongst their more recognizable cast members.
As you know, everyone has to start somewhere, and the latest batch of “new” actors in Hollywood have actually been around for quite a while, fighting their way to the top of the cultural zeitgeist before becoming truly successful.
