The Actor: The fun-sized lead of J.J. Abrams’ Super 8, who alongside Elle Fanning, managed to keep the (admittedly spectacular) special effects grounded by creating a thoroughly human drama. Bravo!

Why So Hot? Next up comes domestic weepie The Healer, before work begins on family epic Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. Courtney will be taking the lead as Sawyer, a role that should mark him out as more than just the latest child-star prodigy.
