10. Little Freddie Benson from Nickelodeon's hit iCarly is also known as Nathan Kress. Not only do I think he was adorable in his TV appearance, but I also think that he displayed some real acting chops. Since iCarly went off the air, I haven't really seen him in any other works. However, he did appear in a Nickelodeon movie, and he was a voice for The Penguins of Madagascar television show when it was still on air. He's grown up nicely from playing an awkward teenage boy, and I think he has quite the acting future ahead of him.
9. British actor Bradley James is number nine on my list. When it was airing, BBC's Merlin was one of my favorite shows. James played King Arthur, who struggled against the influence of his harsh father, his dedicated servant, and his loving wife-to-be. I thought that James was a perfect fit for such a dynamic, lovely character. In addition to Merlin, James has also appeared in a movie entitled Fast Girls and a series entitled Homeland.
8. Best known for his epic comedy skills in the two Jump Street movies, Jonah Hill slides in at number eight. Though he's not your typical "hot" male actor, there is no denying the man's skills. He's perfect parts awkward and squeezable, and I love that he ironically plays the "player" in the Jump Street movies despite the fact that he co-stars with heart-throb Channing Tatum. Plus, you have to respect the fact that he wrote parts of the previously mentioned films along with The Simpsons and Saturday Night Live. I personally love actors that also write material because I'm a writer myself.
7. Canadian Avan Jogia played bad boy Beck Oliver in Nickelodeon's Victorious and Danny Desai from ABC Family's Twisted. Though he made his start in a cheesy tween show, I think that he has the potential to do some crazy awesome stuff. Currently, the long-haired actor is working on a TV show called Tut and a movie with ex Victorious costar Victoria Justice called The Outskirts. Both are expected in 2015. Needless to say, he's keeping busy, and I love watching his work.
6. Since the days of High School Musical, I've loved Mr. Zac Efron. Honestly, I think his portrayal of Troy Bolton is my favorite role of his. Troy is just literally the perfect high school boy if that's even possible. Since his days singing alongside Vanessa Hudgins, he's starred in musical turned movie Hairspray, tear-jerker Charlie St. Cloud, Nicholas Sparks's movie The Lucky One, and the outlandish comedy The Neighbors. Efron is effortlessly charming, and it's hard not to like him as you watch him on screen. We can fall in love with him in romantic movies and laugh along with him in his more comedic films.
5. The Notebook's and Crazy Stupid Love's Ryan Gosling secures my number five spot. I think that The Notebook is an absolute work of art, and Gosling was the perfect fit for Noah. When I think of the actor now, all I can see in my mind is Nicholas Sparks's famous work. He absolutely crushed the role, and I will forever be grateful. On the other hand, he flawlessly portrayed the player turned dedicated boyfriend in Crazy Stupid Love alongside Emma Stone. I think that he is a classic actor, who is both diverse and talented.
4. Broadway brought actor Jeremy Jordan into the spotlight, and I think the entertainment industry is better for it. Though I did not get the pleasure of seeing him star as Jack Kelly in Newsies, I heard that he was absolutely magical. What really sold me on his skills was the series SMASH. He played Jimmy, who ended up being the love interest of Katherine McPhee's character, Karen. He was complex yet genius when it came to music. Even though his character frustrated me, his acting just made me love him.
3. Mr. Harry Potter himself comes in at number three on my countdown. Daniel Radcliffe started his acting career as an adorable little wizard with a lightening bolt shaped scar, but currently, he is a hard-core artist to be reckoned with. He created a character that we could relate to in some way. After Harry Potter finished, Radcliffe starred on Broadway in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.
2. Possibly the most referenced character on Twitter, the Chuck Bass was played by Brit Ed Westwick. Mr. Bass was an extremely dynamic character, and over the six season of Gossip Girl, he completely transformed from a total child into a respectable man. You know the actor did the character justice when you completely change your opinion on the character as you see him more and more. Westwick showed us every side of Chuck Bass, and I thank him for that.
1. When I mentioned Jonah Hill before, you were probably wondering where his Jump Street co-star, Channing Tatum, would be on my list. Well, he earned spot number one. Now, I don't just say this because he's dreamy, though he is. I say this because he can play a variety of role successfully. He can be the absolute heart-throb in a movie like The Vow, or he can just be stupidly hilarious like he was in the Jump Street films. I think diversity is the tell-tale sign of a masterful actress.
