Nate Parker

It's good he quit his day job: Parker was working as a computer programmer when he was discovered by accident at talent search in Dallas – he swears he was only there to support a friend – and within a week, he had moved to Los Angeles in the hopes of making it big. After a decade spent finding his feet in films like The Great Debaters and Spike Lee's Red Hook Summer, the 35-year-old Parker stepped up to leading man status this year in Beyond the Lights (alongside fellow 2014 Sex Symbol Gugu Mbatha-Raw) and the indie ensemble piece About Alex. More importantly, he also learned the finer points of badassery from Liam Neeson in Non-Stop, which should serve him well as he continues to make his own way in Hollywood.
