Breakout Stars of the 2012 Fall TV Season - From Amell to Montgomery to Crystal
HitFix selects 15 new-ish stars to click for 2012
Maggie Jones, 'Ben and Kate'
Where You've Seen Her Before: As Matt Damon's preternaturally cute daughter in "We Bought a Zoo" (opposite another performer in this gallery).
Breakout Role: Maddie Fox, the preternaturally cute daughter of Dakota Johnson's Kate.
Why: This is a season filled with cute, wise children (Bebe Wood on "The New Normal" gets first crack at establishing the archetype on Monday night), and Jones is easily the best of them: relaxed and natural and incredibly charming. Johnson and Nat Faxon are the leads, and Lucy Punch gets the best jokes in the pilot, but Jones easily generated the most affection by the end of the half-hour.
