winters ago, audiences were buzzing over "hot new names" like
Jude Law (in "The Talented Mr. Ripley"), Renee Zellweger (in
"Jerry Maguire"), Colin Farrell (in "Tigerland"), Kate Winslet
(in "Sense and Sensibility") and Leonardo DiCaprio (in "What's
Eating Gilbert Grape").
This fall, these will be the biggest names on movie marquees.
And coming right behind them is a crop of fresh faces. Here are
five to watch for in the coming months:
Where you'll see her: As the love interest of Johnny
Knoxville, who plays a guy pretending to be mentally impaired to
win the Special Olympics, in the Farrelly brothers' production
"The Ringer," opening Nov. 5. (Hey, it worked for Cameron Diaz
in "There's Something About Mary.") The 24-year-old former child
model from Connecticut was previously in "My Father the Hero"
and played a beautiful alien on TV's "Roswell."
Next up: The thriller "The 9th Passenger."
Why her: Nothing's sexier than a sense of humor, and
Heigl must have a seriously silly side to do "The Ringer."
