Recognizing the New Generation of Action Heroes

If you're over the age 30, everyone under 30 probably look the same to you now. It's hard to tell the new generation of action stars apart. How many people saw Cloverfield and kept thinking, "Didn't that guy die already?" only to realize it was a completely different person. Back in the day, it was easy. There was Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Sylvester Stallone. Now, they all look like Paul Walker, which is a goddamn shame because I only just got to the point where I could tell Paul Walker and Lucas Black apart. You know how bad it is when Charming Potato is suddenly the most distinct looking guy among the new generation.

I see a lot of movies and read a lot of trade news, and it's sometimes difficult for even me to know who is who. For those of you who are more casual moviegoers, I can only imagine. They all seems to have close-cropped dirty blond hair and a little bit of stubble. It's like walking into the GAP in 2002.

2011 is going to be a big year for this new generation of action stars, so I wanted to take a moment to help familiarize you with them. You will be tested.
