It has been a pretty remarkable past couple of years for Australian actor Joel Edgerton. While he made his first tentative steps in Hollywood with a role in a couple of the "Star Wars" prequels, "King Arthur" and "Smokin' Aces," it would be the movies he made as part of his Blue-Tongue Films collective that would raise his profile. "The Square" and "Animal Kingdom" were both breakout films and since then, Edgerton has never been busier. He's got a wide variety of roles on his plate with the horror remake "The Thing," the fantasy "The Odd Life of Timothy Green" and the MMA drama "Warrior" all set to hit theaters, with roles in Kathryn Bigelow's Mark Boal-scribed untitled black-ops thriller (aka "Kill Bin Laden") and Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby" in the works. In short, the actor is on the cusp of becoming a household name and a familiar face.

The anointment of Joel Edgerton as a freshly minted A-lister looks to be complete. The Australian actor seemed to be on the brink of something for a decade, but 2011 may be the year in which the stars align: his small, but pivotal role in "Animal Kingdom" last year kicked off a string of new gigs, including the male lead in the prequel/reboot/preboot of "The Thing," opposite Mary Elizabeth Winstead, the co-lead opposite Jennifer Garner in "The Odd Life of Timothy Green," and starring across from Tom Hardy in MMA drama "Warrior," a film that's picked up major buzz from early screenings, with some even whispering that it could be an awards contender.

The list of go-to names for big roles, particularly for male leads, is an ever-changing one. We ran down a list last year, but even in the few months since then, new names have come to the forefront, and some have jumped to the front of the queue. "Thor" star Chris Hemsworth, for instance, who just locked down the title role opposite Kristen Stewart in "Snow White and the Huntsman," is a newbie, while his co-star in the forthcoming film, "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" romantic lead Sam Clafin, not only bagged the prince part in the fairy tale, but also the lead in would-be-'Harry Potter'-replacement franchise "The Seventh Son," with Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore.
