Star Power ' Pineapple Express' Seth Rogen is the comedy star of the moment, with eight screen appearances in 2008 alone. James Franco appeared in all three Spider-Man movies and the cult hit Freaks and Geeks with Rogen. Danny McBride is this years rising comic star, with three comedies this summer The Foot Fist Way and smaller roles in Pineapple Express and Tropic Thunder. 'Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2' The main actresses from the first Traveling Pants movie are back, though theyve had divergent career arcs since 2005. Amber Tamblyn, second from right, hasnt had a regular TV series since Joan of Arcadia was canceled. Similarly, Alexis Bledel, left, hasnt made a major transition to the big screen since Gilmore Girls ended last year. Meanwhile, America Ferrera, second from left, has become a major TV star thanks to Ugly Betty and Blake Livelys career has taken off because of Gossip Girl. WINNER: This splits straight down gender lines. The Pineapple guys dont really exert a McDreamy-like pull for the ladies, and most guys couldn't care less about seeing Ugly Betty without her braces. Well give the edge to the Pants girls just because theres one more of them.
