Best known for: "Immortals"
Breakout potential: The handsome Welsh actor got his start on stage, appearing in a number of West End productions. Evans had small roles in two hit 2010 films ("Titans" and "Robin Hood"), before having a very busy 2011, although his high-profile films ("Immortals," "Three Musketeers") failed to connect with audiences. However, in the upcoming year, Evans will be seen opposite John Cusack in the Edgar Allen Poe-derived "The Raven," and could be one of the breakout stars in Peter Jackson's highly-anticipated "LOTR" follow-up, "The Hobbit." Plus, he's already played two Greek gods, which should look pretty good on a resume. - Dave Lewis
