Who Will be the Man of Next Year in Pop Culture?

Nicholas Hoult

The first quarter of 2013 is going to belong to Nicholas Hoult. In February's Warm Bodies, which is, for better or for worse, being called the next Twilight, the British actor, who's dating his gorgeous X-Men: First Class co-star Jennifer Lawrence,  plays not a vampire or a werewolf but a zombie who falls in love with a beautiful young woman (Teresa Palmer). It looks funny and emo and perfect for audiences full of emotional outcasts who love stories about good looking young monsters with big hearts. In March, Hoult follows that up with Jack the Giant Slayer, a CGI spectacle based on the Jack and the Beanstalk fairy tale, in which he plays Jack and will do battle with some big baddies to rescue a kidnapped princess.
