In-demand actor Benedict Cumberbatch is on the US magazine’s latest ‘Ones To Watch’ list, together with Aussie comedienne Rebel Wilson.
BRITISH actor Benedict Cumberbatch, feisty Australian comic Rebel Wilson and country music newcomer Kacey Musgraves are among eight rising stars on People magazine’s “Ones To Watch” list.
Cumberbatch, 37, was selected for his roles in three films that are already generating critical and awards buzz: The Fifth Estate, 12 Years A Slave and August: Osage County.
The actor is in high demand after winning over audiences in the lead role on BBC/PBS modern TV drama Sherlock, and as Khan in J.J. Abrams’ film Star Trek Into Darkness.
Sydney native Wilson, 27, gained recognition as a scene-stealer in the 2011 comedy Bridesmaids and as Fat Amy in 2012’s a cappella comedy Pitch Perfect. She is currently writing and starring in the CBS television comedy Super Fun Night.
People’s “Ones To Watch” puts the spotlight on a group of notable artistes in film, television and music who are on the cusp of breaking into mainstream recognition.
Musgraves, 25, a US singer-songwriter from Texas, is a rising star in the country music world. Her studio album Same Trailer Different Park debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 album chart in March and was well received by critics.
Also on the coveted list is actor Michael B. Jordan, 26, who is getting awards buzz in Hollywood for his lead role in the drama Fruitvale Station. He portrays Oscar Grant, an Oakland man whose death on New Year’s Eve in 2008 sparked riots against police brutality.
Former Saturday Night Live comedian Andy Samberg, Los Angeles indie band Capital Cities, actress Anna Faris, and British actor Sam Claflin, who plays Finnick Odair in the upcoming Hunger Games instalment Catching Fire, were also deemed noteworthy.
The full portfolio of “Ones To Watch” will be in People’s Oct 22 issue. – Reuters
