The Most Promising Actors Under the Age of 25

By Dustin Rowles | Seriously Random Lists | June 16, 2010 |

But what about the actors with actual talent? The ones that aren't spoken of as often, but the ones likely to survive the longest. Today, I want to take a gander at the 10 Most Promising Actors 25 and Under -- the folks who will actually be around when they're 30 or 35. Note, too, that actors under the age of 25 who have already fulfilled their promise (for what that promise is worth) -- Ellen Page, Michael Cera, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, etc. -- are not included among the top ten.
