Joseph Gordon-Levitt

From child star (A River Runs Through It, Roseanne) to grown-up heartthrob (500 Days of Summer, Inception) —with time off in between to study at Columbia. Sexy and smart.

The Good Wife's sneaky Cary. He's definitely grown on us.

David Oyelowo

He's played a judge (The Good Wife), a bluesman (Muddy Waters in Who Do You Love), a British intelligence agent (MI-5) and a king (in Henry VI , the first black man to play a monarch for the Royal Shakespeare Company). Watch for this fine (in every sense of the word) actor as Martin Luther King, Jr. in Selma.
