1. Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Is there anything the guy can't do? After stealing much of the show in "The Dark Knight Rises" -- no small feat. This is Batman we're talking about -- Gordon-Levitt wisely reteamed with "Brick" director Rian Johnson for the superb "Looper," a time-travel film that was equal parts awesome action and pure emotion that he also executive produced. He also made "Premium Rush," a really good bike messenger film. We repeat: a really good bike messenger film. Add in a supporting role in "Lincoln" and a striptease while hosting "Saturday Night Live," ("Magic Mike 2: JGL Rules") and it doesn't get much better than this for the 31-year-old. But still, we expect things to.
