8 New Generation Male Actors That Could Hold an Oscar Someday

As skeptical as I am about movies today, it doesn’t mean I don’t think there’s talent out there.  I just think that today’s movies have more emphasis on visuals than stories and acting than say 15 years ago.

However, there are still great movies that come around once in a while and usually it’s that combo of a great story and an unforgettable performance that will keep me going to the theater.

Speaking of great performances, who are the next generation of Oscar winners?  I’ve selected seven that I think fit the bill…

Joseph Gordon Levitt

I think it’s just a matter of time before Levitt wins an Oscar.   He probably could have gotten one for 500 days of Summer.   I personally thought he’d be the successor if they ever resurrect the Joker role in all the Batman movies.   Levitt’s been around a very long time and has definitely earned his spurs.  Guy started at 8 years old and he’s barely 30.

Jesse Eisenberg

He’s already been nomiated once and I think he’ll get nominated again.  The only flaw with Eisenberg is that he’s made for roles where he plays kind of a sad, dorky dork type of a guy.  Not sure if he’s being typecast just yet but it remains to be see how versatile an actor he is.  But something tells me another Zuckerberg type role is in his future.
