ONTD Original - 8 Rising Actors Who Are Ugly Yet/and Maybe Talented

What do I mean by this list? I mean, young actors who are on the rise, doing some amazing work and winning awards, and are not traditionally beautiful or fit the description of "boys i wanna bang" or "ontd bae". No actresses will be included in this list because of how much harder it is to be given an acting chance with a less conventionally attractive face (srsly).

This list was obviously inspired by the Meth Damon post and a post from a couple days ago about amazing B-list actors who will never fully breakout and win their Hollywood top spot. No harm is meant by this post, and actors mentioned here who see this post should actually be grateful for this chance of being in the ONTD spotlight!

Moises Arias - As I was trying to look for another picture of him and thinking about his commonly used nickname in this community, I naturally typed "gremlin" into the google image search bar. The nickname is befitting considering his odd-looking facial features and his height (he's only 5'1"). Although the image of his character, smooth-talking surfshop owner Rico, from Hannah Montana may forever be etched into your mind (if you watched that show growing up), his post-Disney career is actually doing quite well. The indie hit The Kings of Summer came out last year, in which THR's review stated Arias as the breakout star. His next two projects include a voicing role in the successful Despicable Me sequel and the dud, Ender's Game. It looks like he is now filming The Stanford Prison Experiment although his role is unannounced.

Regarding his personal life, controversially, he is friends with permanent raised eyebrows Jaden Smith (who is only 16 yrs old) and was caught in scandal over the instagram pic of him and Willow Smith (who is only 13 yrs old) sitting in bed with him shirtless... why

Will Poulter - Do you remember this guy from The Chronicles of Narnia? I hope you do because his face is exactly the same and the movie was only four years ago. He has... very distinct eyebrows. This English actor took a break from high profile projects after The Chronicles of Narnia and resurged into the spotlight with We're the Millers, earning him a BAFTA Rising Star Award. I hope everyone enjoyed his hilarious rapping scene and makeout scenes with Jennifer Aniston and Emma Roberts. This year, he tackled on the YA dystopian film The Maze Runner, which was a commercial success. Despite the success, Will Poulter tweeted "I won't assume about you being a dork but I will be happy to bet I could find a shelf that writes better than you" at a critic who wrote that The Maze Runner was the worst film he had the displeasure of seeing.

Up next for Will Poulter are two films with great potential: The Revenant with Leonardo Dicarpio and Tom Hardy and directed by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, and The Yellow Birds with Benedict Cumberbatch and Tye Sheridan

Adam Driver - Even as a former nursing student, I can't tell you what's wrong with his face. The proportions look off some how??

Miles Teller - Is this potato hotter than the other one (Channing Tatum)? Sorry, I had to use that joke. Everyone on this site knows Miles Teller from Rabbit Hole and The Spectacular Now. He graduated from NYU Tisch a few years ago, and while his career choices are mostly on point, he has had a few misses (Footloose remake, 21 & Over, That Awkward Moment, Fantastic Four reboot). You last saw him in the YA dystopian film Divergent as the bully Peter. Teller commented that filming [Divergent] made him feel dead inside but has since backtracked on that statement, explaining that it was the fourth film he worked on in a row so he was tired. Whiplash recently opened and gained universal acclaim for his performance as a drum student. Will there be any oscars for this young actor? Probably not this year, but maybe in his future.

Jesse Plemons - AKA Meth Damon. I think I like this guy the most on this list because I'm a huge fan of Matt Damon, and if a Matt Damon biopic were to ever happen, Meth Damon would be my number 1 casting choice (but who would play Ben Affleck??) Jesse Plemons first shined as Landry on the NBC hit Friday Night Lights. He was great in the part, and I truly thought he was just a random guy plucked out from Texas (and he actually is from Texas). His next big role was Todd in Breaking Bad, hence the nickname. Salon.com chose Jesse Plemons as the 2013 breakout star of Breaking Bad (is he getting typecast as a rube?) This year he'll appear in Tommy Lee Jone's The Hourman and was recently cast to play a gay 'SNL' writer and Black Mass, a film starring Johnny Depp and Benedict Cumberbatch.

Craig Roberts - This Welsh actor actually looks decent in the photo above, but in other google images, he truly looks like a cartoon character. Craig Roberts perhaps is best known for playing the lead in Richard Ayoade's Submarine. This year, he has added two great comedies to his filmography, playing Assjuice in Neighbors (with Zac Efron and Seth Rogen) and playing a small part in 22 Jump Street. He doesn't really have any interesting upcoming projects, but maybe he'll keep showing up in comedy hits.

Ezra Miller - It's heartbreaking for me to put him on this list, but I think we all know that there is a huge difference in his appearance when he's clean and groomed for a role and his appearance in between filming. Cue the have you seen his toenails??! The two highlights in his filmography is We Need to Talk About Kevin and The Perks of Being A Wallflower. He was recently cast as the lead in The Stanford Prison Experiment and as Flash in the Justice League film, becoming the first openly queer actor to play a superhero (but will he dye his hair for the role tho?)

Haley Joel Osment - LBR Haley Joel Osment is an actor that fits so well on this list. I don't think I need to talk about his child acting career but after taking a break from the industry and going to NYU Tisch, he has finally started working again. This year he showed up in Kevin Smith's Tusk and will also collaborate with him again for next year's action-adventure film Yoga Hosers. He will also be in the upcoming comedy-drama film Entourage with Kevin Connelly (dunno who that is), which is a continuation of the HBO television series. There is already plenty of speculation if Haley Joel Osment can make his comeback in Hollywood.
