By this time next year you will know everything about these 15 celebs.
2014 is over and it's time to ring in the new year. Along with our resolutions, come our new celebrity obsessions. 2014 was the year of our eternal love Jennifer Lawrence, Ebola, Chris Pratt, Kim Kardashian and the Ice Bucket Challenge, and while it's definitely okay to continue your Chris Pratt/Jennifer Lawrence obsession, it's time to get ready for a fresh new set of faces that are going to take over your screens in 2015.
In the upcoming year, there will be a new Star Wars, a Fantastic Four reboot, Jurassic Park, Cinderella, another Mockingjay movie, Insurgent and basically a ton of other movies, plus all the big TV shows are coming back soon. You may not know these people by name now as you go through this list, but these celebrities have a huge year ahead of them and by this time next year you will know them all and probably be crushing pretty hard on some of them. Mainly, Jenny Slate because she's amazing and hilarious.
This is your chance to get ahead of the game and get to know them before everyone else. You can sound way smarter than your friends when you know things first. That's a fact. Here are 15 celebrities who are about to explode into superstardom in 2015:
1. Jenny Slate
Jenny Slate is brilliant. She's amazing. She's hilarious. Once your girl crush on Jennifer Lawrence fades, Jenny Slate needs to be your next you-would-totally-go-lesbian-for-her celebrity. Watch season 5 of Parks and Recreatio n… and you will understand. Plus she was on SNL, Jimmy Fallon and she once voiced Marcel the Shell. So, she's the best. The end.
2. Eddie Redmayne
After he wins the Oscar for best actor because he portrayed Stephen Hawking (and nailed it), you will know his name and you will never forget it. He's pretty sexy and will be in a movie called Jupiter Ascending with Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum.
3. Miles Teller
Yes, he's been around for a few years now, but on top of his Oscar buzz with Whiplash, he's got Insurgent coming out and he is playing Mr. Fantastic in the new Fantastic Four reboot. Basically, Miles Teller is going to define your summer.
4. Imogen Poots
Not that many people saw That Awkward Moment or Need For Speed, but with a name like Imogen Poots and five movies coming out in 2015, then your chances for becoming a household name increase immensely.
5. Adam Driver
Ah. Adam from Girls. Most of you already know his face, but Adam Driver is moving on in life into bigger roles like Star Wars, so prepare yourself for everyone to know about Adam Driver soon, even if you claim you saw him first.
6. Jai Courtney
He plays a huge dick in the Divergent series as Eric and he's not going anywhere any time soon. Plus he's the new Kyle Reese in the Terminator series, so you better get used to him.
7. Lily James
Some people know Lily James for her role on Downton Abbey as Lady Rose MacClare, but next year she will become a well-known name after Cinderella and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies comes out.
8. Richard Madden
The same goes for Richard Madden, who plays the prince in the upcoming Cinderella movie, but also he was in Game of Thrones, so while many people know him, now everyone will.
9. Britt Robertson
When you star in a movie alongside George Clooney, you are famous by association. You can see her in Tomorrowland coming out this year. We still don't really get the plot, but we like it.
10. Nat Wolff
Although he's done other stuff, Nat Wolff had an amazing role in The Fault in Our Stars and now he's back for another John Green novel, Paper Towns. If he's anything like Ansel Elgort, he is going to have a lot of ladies chasing him next year.
11. Brie Larson
Brie Larson has been in movies, TV shows and next year has four movies coming out making everyone else look like amateurs.
12. Grace and Mamie Gummer
Both of them awesome actors, who happen to be the offspring of Meryl Streep and you know what? You can never have enough Meryl.
13. Natalie Dormer
She went from The Tudors' Anne Boleyn to King's Landing on Game of Thrones, and now she's in Panem with Katniss Everdeen. She is everywhere and you need to know her.
14. Alfred Enoch
He might have been nerdy in Harry Potter, but now that he's the star of How To Get Away With Murder, we are pretty sure he's going to blow up this year, especially since that show is raking in the ratings. It helps that he's hot.
15. Matt McGorry
He's Asher Millstone on How To Get Away With Murder and John Bennett on Orange Is The New Black. He's pretty famous, and people like him a lot. You can assume that he will be sticking around.
