Alden Ehrenreich, Suki Waterhouse, and 8 More Breakout Stars for the Rest of 2016

     July 5, 2016


To say the past six months have been somewhat kooky might be something of an understatement. Politically and culturally there has simply been a lot to make you scratch your head over. And, sadly, Hollywood can relate. Audiences have turned away from a number of sequels many thought would be big hits and the long line of comedy bombs so far this year is almost unexplainable (some were even funny!). It’s such a strange year that only one of the 10 actors we suggested as potential breakouts in January has done so, Birth of a Nation star and director Nate Parker. Two more have time to make their mark before Dec. 31 – Riz Ahmed and Scott Eastwood – but new intel has allowed us to suggest a crop of new contenders that should make enough noise over the next six months to find themselves pretty damn close to the A-list.
