15 Breakout Stars of Summer 2012
Diego Boneta, Josh Henderson, Lucy Griffiths and more
Previously Seen: AMC's "The Killing," "Snabba Cash" ("Easy Money" U.S. title)
Expected Breakout Role: "Lola Versus" (June 8)
Why: In his native Sweden, Kinnaman is a star. He's finally made the transition to U.S. projects as a detective on AMC's love it or hate it series "The Killing." Now Stateside moviegoers will get their chance to see how charismatic the 32-year-old is as Greta Gerwig's love interest in "Lola Versus." It may not make him a household name on this side of the pond, but it's an excellent calling card for Kinnaman's varied talents in an English-speaking role.
