10 Hot New Faces That Will Make Your Summer Moviegoing Experience Downright Sizzling

By Joanna Robinson | Seriously Random Lists | April 18, 2013 | Comments ()


Elizabeth Debicki -- The Great Gatsby: Not to detract from the ethereal beauty of Carey Mulligan or the earthier ginger hotness of Isla Fisher, but Debicki as golfer Jordan Baker has an angular grace that suits the 20s to a t. In fact, she's got a young Mira Sorvino thing going on and while Sorvino played an awful Daisy Buchanan, she looked great doing it.

Eric West -- World War Z: I'm not sure we'll have much opportunity in this gritty zombie flick to appreciate all Eric West has to offer. But this whip thin relative of Smokey Robinson has a lot to offer, not just on the soundtrack.

Elsa Pataky -- Fast And Furious 6: Pataky showed up in the surprisingly enjoyable Fast 5 and will return in the sixth installment in this resurrected franchise. If accents do uncomfortable things to you, you're in luck here.

Jillian Morgese -- Much Ado About Nothing: Thought Hero spends most of Shakespeare's play in the background, Morgese's gangly giraffe-like beauty makes in impression. Remember, the last chick to play Hero did pretty well for herself.

Caleb Landry Jones -- Byzantium: Not your cup of tea? That's fine, move it along. But there is a market for weird, alien-looking androgynous young men. See: Redmayne, Eddie and Rhys Meyers, Jonathan. Landry Jones has gone from a Weasley-looking kid ("Friday Night Lights," X-Men: First Class) to full-blown Byron in the last few years. Tumblr, beware.

Rebecca Buller -- Man Of Steel: I think most of us are pretty excited by the fact that Jimmy Olsen will, in this iteration, be Jenny Olsen. It helps that Rebecca Buller is an absolute girl-next-door cutie. Brie-tastic.

Ruth Wilson -- The Lone Ranger: If you're thinking "she's not new," good on you. You've watched "Luther" (and/or that "Jane Eyre"). I approve. If you're thinking "she doesn't belong on a "hot" list, her face is all froggy-like. BAM. BUSTED. You haven't watched "Luther" yet. BAD, READER. Very bad. Wilson is a g-d sexual predator (not in the Chris Hansen way). I'm delighted she's getting mainstream work. Not sure, however, that this project will properly highlight her intensely seductive qualities.

Svetlana Khodchenkova -- The Wolverine: Is there any name more Summer Blockbuster Hottie-sounding than Svetlana? I'm more than a little excited to watch her take on Hugh Jackman.

Sullivan Stapleton -- 300: Rise Of An Empire: In case you were just internally bemoaning the lack of dudes on this list, fear not. This right here is the beefcake motherlode. With a slew of scantily clad newcomers to choose from, you'll be well taken care of. Remember, the original 300 blessed us with our first glimpse of the Fassboard abs.

Lyndsy Fonseca -- Kick Ass 2: Listen, bad news folks. Chloe Grace Moretz is still only 16. Cold comfort? Fonesca is 26. So funnel your urges thisaway if you please. Thanks.

So, Let's Talk About Amanda Bynes...: The Mendoza Line of Celebrity Schadenfreude | Fighter Jets and the Mad Hatter Theory: How NBC's "Community" Died

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Green Lantern

    Jenny Olsen? JENNY Olsen?? How did I not know about THAT?

    No. Just...no.

  • ,

    Maybe I'm just getting old, but all of those hot new faces look like ... the hot new faces of 2007, or the hot new faces of 2001, or the hot new faces of 1996, or the hot hew faces of pick any goddamn year ...

    Help me out here, weaves. AmIrite?

  • hickoryduck

    I'm sure Ruth Wilson is a fine actress (I've never seen her in anything) and a lovely woman, but jesus her face is hard to look at.

  • Beautiful actress and fantastic as Alice in Luther. It's the eyebrows though. Evil eyebrows.....

  • Zeus McGuire

    16, old enough

  • par1964

    Old enough to go to the store, old enough to get bread ......

  • e jerry powell

    Caleb Landry Jones is the love child of Cate Blanchett and Tilda Swinton. So awesome.

  • Jo 'Mama' Besser

    Are we sad that she's sixteen? Not really into her 'I'm gonna be as sultry and mildly threatening (watch me pout)' as possible' style, but if she's your cup of jail tea...

  • Joe Grunenwald

    He-LLO, Rebecca Buller.

  • BlackRabbit

    I swear Hollywood just has clone camps in the Midwest somewhere and they stir the DNA slightly to make sure there aren't 200 twins running around. Who else looks like Jillian Morgese?

  • BWeaves

    All these brunettes look alike to me. Where are the new Swinton's, Hepburn's, Betty Davisi?

  • DataAngel

    Coming Soon to a Tumblr Near You: Caleb Landry Jones as David Bowie as Tilda Swinton as David Bowie.

  • toblerone

    You've obviously never seen Freddie Fox before.

  • Maguita NYC

    THERE IS A GOD!!! A Tilda Swinton with a dick. Thank you!

  • Grace Babcock

    Was his middle name the inspiration for THE Landry on FNL? Cause I definitely remember this lil androgynous fella as Jimmy the drummer in Crucifictorious...

  • Beth

    I'm going to guess that came from Tom Landry, coach of the Dallas Cowboys.

  • toblerone

    Yaya Ying - Only God Forgives

    Rinko Kikuchi - Pacific Rim / 47 Ronin (Yes she's not new but since you included Ted Mosby's daughter she's new enough and she hasn't been in a tent pole like P.R. before).

  • toblerone

    Plus: Tao Okamoto - Wolverine

  • Dammit JRob. I was THISCLOSE to being utterly uninterested in The Lone Ragner movie. Then you had to go do this. Damn you to hell.

    Also, thanks.

  • Pentadactyl

    Lyndsy Fonseca: new?

  • Theunis Stofberg

    isn't she Ted's daughter? ?i am pretty sure she is Ted's daughter.

  • Not new, especially if you watch Nikita or have seen Kick-Ass. Also, possibly the hottest thing God (or whatever) ever shovelled guts into.

    For those that haven't seen it, I give you the somewhat famous ice cream video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

  • Guest

    Reminds me of a certain scene from A Serbian Film.

  • NateMan

    Not to hijack the thread, but is anyone else's browser going batshit when they click Pajiba links lately? I'd say 30% of the time it just blows up into a big HP ad and I'm forced to reload the page.

  • NynjaSquirrel

    Try NoScript extension for Mozilla - works wonders on those nasty popups and general crap.

  • Pants-are-a-must

    Svetlana Khodchenkova was fabulous in "Tinkler, Tailor, Soldier, Spy," despite her tiny role.

  • And of course she's Mrs Thor.

  • Pants-are-a-must

    Wrong blonde.

  • I confused myself!

  • I agree. That one scene is so intense...you know...when the KGB is interrogating Mark Strong.

  • Jakesalterego

    If Sullivan Stapleton is your cup of tea, then you should watch Strike Back and watch him softcore bone every lady in town.

    I love Strike Back.

  • MCRox

    I am kinda meh on the new Strike Back because the Richard Armitage/Andrew Lincoln season rocked but the Winchester guy is nice to look at. I am however all over the new season cause Robson Green is going to be on it!!! Dark and twisty Robson Green is good.

  • Oh heck yeah. Super snarky, very bad soldier, abrasive... yet still sexy as hell, even with that bald spot. Also, thank all the gods, they didn't shave off his body hair (which it looks like they did for 300 redux, so shame on them!).

  • MurderBot

    This right here!

    Though be forewarned. Sully will make shouting FUCK ME! your go-to expletive for months to come.

  • I was *shocked* when I heard his natural accent. I had no idea he was Australian. And, I love Strike Back, too. :)

  • Samantha Klein

    Mulligan, Carey. :)
