Here's Your New Hollywood A-List



Agents, managers and studio executives say it has become harder and harder for actors to take hold of the cultural zeitgeist the way a Leonardo DiCaprio or Jennifer Lawrence once did due to social media and streaming. “The idea of the movie star has died,” says one top agency talent rep, “and everyone is now trying to reinvent what movie stardom looks like.”

The Hollywood Reporter ranked the top five actors who are at the top of every casting director’s wish list and the future of the Hollywood A-list.
