Josh Hutcherson

Boy, has this 18-year-old actor grown up. After coming onto the scene as an adorable 10-year-old with his first crush in Little Manhattan, he matured into an full-blown star in The Kids Are All Right. We're pretty sure that after his turn as Peeta in the highly anticipated Hunger Games, his next stop is leading man.

Blair Redford

Call him the new face of ABC Family. After guest-starring on Switched at Birth, he now stars on the network's The Lying Game as the mysteriously brooding Ethan. Combine those with his stint as a bad-boy home wrecker on 90210, and you've got a 28-year-old actor who is dominating the teen scene.

Andrew Garfield

He played second banana to Jesse Eisenberg's Mark Zuckerburg in the Oscar-winning film The Social Network, but as the star of the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man, the actor, 28, is poised to climb both walls and the Hollywood ladder.

Steven R. McQueen

Like grandfather, like grandson? This former Everwood hottie, the 23-year-old grandson of 1960s action star Steve McQueen, can now be seen each week on one of TV's hottest shows, The Vampire Diaries. Must be that awesome "blood" line, no?

Liam Hemsworth

After nabbing the coveted role of Gale in The Hunger Games, this Australian, 21, will soon be known for a lot more than being Miley Cyrus' boyfriend. His older brother Chris is already carving out his own career in Hollywood in films such as Thor, but as far as we're concerned, the more Hemsworths the merrier.

Beau Mirchoff

MTV's Awkward was a surprise summer hit, and we give some of the credit to the 22-year-old actor's performance as strangely insecure BMOC Matty McKibben. A jock with real emotions? What could be better?

Ian Harding

Who doesn’t love a guy in a sweater vest? Although he's in a relationship with his very underage former student in Pretty Little Liars, Harding, 24, proves that nerdy guys can be very sexy.

Chord Overstreet

As the clean-cut Justin Bieber look-alike on Glee, the 22-year-old Overstreet's reputation has skyrocketed since his arrival at McKinley High. (His high-profile romance with Emma Roberts doesn't hurt, either.) His Glee days appear to be over, but he's already secured a new role on ABC's The Middle. We're sure it won't be his last.

Tyler Posey

This 19-year-old actor has popped up on Smallville and Brothers & Sisters, but his career really started roaring when he landed the lead on MTV's Teen Wolf. Undoubtedly one of the summer's hottest new stars, we can't wait to see wat he digs his claws into next.

Big Time Rush

Kendall Schmidt, Logan Henderson, Carlos Pena and James Maslow are the members of this real-life band and stars of their own eponymous Nickelodeon show. But their music isn't just child's play: The group has worked with Hollywood stars Russell Brand and Snoop Dogg to name just a few.
