This month we put six people on the cover — young actors we think are poised to have tremendous years. Thing is, six is a lot to fit on one cover. So we split it into three, presented here side by side by side, just as God — and our photographer, Yu Tsai — intended
Clooney on ER, Depp on 21 Jump Street, Hanks on Bosom Buddies: People like to say in hindsight that they always knew that so-and-so TV actor had all the makings of a movie star. Such talk is, of course, bullshit. Nobody knows why some actors can make the transition to the big screen and others can’t, and the fact is that only a handful of the wildly talented actors currently working on television have a shot at making it in the movies. That brings us to Aaron Paul, the thirty-two-year-old Emmy winner whose hell-raising, heartbreaking performance as a meth dealer and addict on Breaking Bad is among the richest and most layered in any medium right now. He brings the same intensity to Smashed, a kind of hipster Days of Wine and Roses that played huge at Sundance earlier this year and hits theaters this fall. As the less sympathetic half of an alcoholic married couple, he fills the screen with sadness, rage, and/or the glee of a drunk who just doesn’t care, and when he’s not in a scene, you wonder where the hell he is. Whether that’s presence or charisma or the makings of a movie star, the fact is that you just can’t stop watching him.
