Nicholas Hoult

The child star from "About A Boy" certainly didn't look so awkward in "A Single Man" or "X-Men First Class" (he's the guy hanging upside-down), and he becomes a leading man in 2012 with Bryan Singer's "Jack the Giant Killer" and "Warm Bodies" from "50/50" director Jonathan Levine. That's certainly more than Hoult's "About A Boy" co-star Hugh Grant has going.
