Jack O’Connell may not be a name that you’re entirely familiar with just yet, but before the year is out it will be.  The young British actor has had a banner year in the indie world with striking lead turns in two very different films, the prison drama Starred Up and the Belfast-set war drama ’71.  He made his Hollywood debut with a small supporting role in 300: Rise of an Empire, but his big breakout turn is in director Angelina Jolie’s upcoming World War II drama Unbroken, in which he plays former Olympian, WWII bombardier, and Japanese POW Louis Zamperini.  It’s going to put O’Connell on the map in a big way, but for now head over to Pepsi Pulse to find out why he should be on your radar right now.
