Are YOU the Next Tom Hanks?
Because you could be if Film.com's thing "Searching For The Next Tom Hanks: The Six Best Actors Under 25" is any indication. I mean, really? Jonah Hill? Honestly? They really think that? Anyway. This bizarro list includes my Jamie on there so I have to post this. They quote Nicholas Nickleby - "His face practically screams drama." - and claim "(h)e backs it up with great performances too", yet it's Emile Hirsch who is "(p)robably the best actor in the group".
I know he's been praised for Into the Wild, but perhaps I missed it when he won a BAFTA for The Girl Next Door? Or when he won two awards from the National Board of Review for The Emperor's Club. Or when he was nominated for two SAG awards for Lords of Dogtown. Or when he won two Young Artist Awards for The Dangerous Lives of Alter Boys?
Did I miss that? I must've missed that, right?
Anyway, the most logical answer is obviously Shia LeBeouf, so let's move on shall we
