These 8 Actors Will Be the Biggest Movie Stars of 2014
Get used to these faces, because you'll be seeing a lot of them this year. Whether they're new actors that will be making their big splash in 2014, or old pros that have captured a ton of roles for this year, these are the people you should expect to see in every big move in 2014.
Quvenzhane Wallis is a relatively new addition to Hollywood, starring in her first role at age nine in 2012. For that role, as Hushpuppy in "Beasts of the Southern Wild," she became the youngest actress to be nominated for the Academy Award for best actress. She continues her burgeoning career in grandiose style in 2014 with the title role in the blockbuster remake of "Annie."
In 2014, Jamie Foxx will be joining young Quvenzhane onstage in "Annie" as Benjamin Stacks, the wealthy adoptive parent of Annie. Audiences will also be able to catch Foxx in theaters a few more times before the year is out. He will also take a starring role in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" as the nemesis Electro. He will also appear in "Rio 2" and "Horrible Bosses 2."
Since her debut in 1999's "Replacing Dad," actress Shailene Woodley has continually made a splash. 2014 will prove to be no different as she continues with a heavy workload on major films. These include major blockbusters such as "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," "Divergent," "The Fault in Our Stars," and "White Bird in a Blizzard."
Stanley Tucci's career has spanned many years. Nonetheless, the 54-year-old actor and Academy Award nominee is still going strong. In 2014 he will appear in a number of films including "Muppets Most Wanted," "Heat," and bigger films such as "Transformers: Age of Extinction," "Mr. Peabody & Sherman," and the massively popular "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1." Expect to see a lot of his face.
Hardly an up-and-comer, Angelina Jolie will be toning down her sex symbol status in 2014 to star as the main character in Disney's "Maleficent." In this sure blockbuster, Jolie plays Maleficent, the evil queen who placed the curse on sleeping beauty, Princess Aurora.
Chris Pratt is best known for his work on television as Andy Dwyer on "Parks and Recreation" and Bright Abbott on "Everwood." However, in 2014, the Minnesota native will be taking a huge leap in his career into major motion pictures "The Lego Movie" and the much anticipated comic book hero movie "Guardians of the Galaxy."
Perpetual Hollywood heartthrob Channing Tatum, will also be a standard at the box office in 2014. This year will be a prime example of the actor's range as he stars in "22 Jump Street," a wild comedy, "Foxcatcher," a serious drama, "Jupiter Ascending", a sci-fi thriller, and "Book of Life", a computer animated film.
Hollywood staple Johnny Depp, won't be shying away from the camera in 2014 as he makes appearances in no less than five films. Perhaps the biggest hit of these will be "Into the Woods," a Disney produced film based on an already wildly successful Broadway musical. In the dark fairy tale story, Depp will be playing the role of the big bad wolf.
