    Who among these male actors will have the most promising career in the future??

    (I left Timothee Chalamet and Robert Pattinson out of the poll because they seem ONLY FOR NOW ahead of anyone among their age range, but honestly things could change quickly)

    Vote and then leave a comment.

    To be honest I can see all of them having extremely promising careers. I went with Paul Mescal because he got my attention (and everyone) in Normal People and I think he’s extremely promising. But ALL of them seem to be on the right track to amazing careers.

    To me it’s between Stanfield, Kaluuya and Washington.
    I’d rank them like this:
    1. Stanfield
    2. Washington
    3. Kaluuya

    These are top for me.
    I honestly don’t have strong feelings for the rest, didn’t care much about their work or performances, nothing incredible or revelatory.

    Mescal in Normal People is probably my favorite work by a male actor in a very long time

    Kaluuya is definitely my pick. He has already delivered one iconic performance, and another is for sure on the way in Judas and the Black Messiah. Even in supporting roles like Widows, he brings an insane energy to everything he does. I really think Judas is gonna bring him to another level and put him on the icon shelf. He’s going to be the male Viola Davis, mark my words. Very cool to see that he seems to be working exclusively with black directors too.

    I think Holland COULD be the best on this list, but only if he starts choosing some challenging roles. I think he’s very talented, not as much as Kaluuya, Chalamet, or Pattinson, but he’s got potential. Problem is he’s not choosing projects half as interesting as the other guys here. He seems very comfortable working in the blockbuster sphere (Uncharted, Chaos Walking) or just following the names/studios who have casted him before (Cherry, Onward). This isn’t necessarily a problem, and The Devil All the Time is a step in the right direction, but I don’t see him reaching the heights of the other guys mentioned, let alone becoming an Oscar nominee, unless he starts taking some genuine chances. And despite the hype the Russos have been trying to drum up for him, I don’t think Cherry will be that kind of risky project. The Russos have never made anything challenging or really risk-taking, at least on the drama side of things, and I don’t expect Cherry to be any different.

    Lakeith Stanfield is choosing very interesting projects, however I’ve never really been impressed by a performance from him. He’s got an awesome filmography, but he seems to play every role in a very similar way. I think he’ll always be in great films, but unless he really steps it up performance-wise, I don’t see him reaching the same level as other people on this list.

    Paul Mescal has blown up since Normal People, but I have to see a few more roles from him. I could unfortunately see him falling off if he doesn’t choose the right projects.

    Holland was attached to star in 1917 (in the role Lance Corporal Blake, eventually played by Dean Charles-Chapman) but had to drop out to Chaos Walking reshoots. I think he is interesting in more challenging work and will do so his Spider-Man contract is up.

    1917 isn’t a challenging project. And he made the right choice: poor Dean Charles Chapman was paid dust by that film’s awful screenplay.

    Anyway, Stanfield, Kaluuya, and Jordan are my picks. I went with Jordan because he’s already proven himself so many times, especially with the Creed movies, Black Panther, and Just Mercy. I think he’ll be Oscar nominated eventually.

    John David Washington is one that I don’t think will reach the dramatic potential of those other 3, but after Tenet I think he could become the next Will Smith or Tom Cruise esuqe marquee action star.  He has such great charisma, even when his characters aren’t well developed. That being said, he can do dramatic roles, as he proved in BlackkKlansman, which he should have been Oscar nominated for.

    I’d love to see what George Mackay could do with a good script, an interesting character, and actual fucking dialog. He did great with what little he was given in 1917.

    It’s definitely Kaluuya. He’s the best actor out of the bunch.

    Still can’t believe that gimmicky movie got nominated for Screenplay over The Farewell.

    Yeah, my bad, I should have put him in the list instead of MacKay.

    Egerton is my choice but Jordan and Holland are going to be very successful in the future as well.

    Well Kaluuya already has the most exciting career of them.

    1917 isn’t a challenging project.

    Exactly. His role would’ve been the heart of the movie with a lot of the comedic relief and a tragic death scene, virtually IDENTICAL to his role in Infinity War, down to him dying in his best friend’s arms. A World War soldier movie (no matter how technically impressive) will probably be hard to make challenging ever again because we’ve seen so many that are so similar. Jojo Rabbit is a challenging World War project, 1917 is not.
