David Oyelowo

In 2012, David Oyelowo singlehandedly emerged as the hardest working actor in Hollywood. The 36-year old British Nigerian starred in five films this year: Red Tails, The Paperboy, Lincoln, Middle of Nowhere and the upcoming Jack Reacher with Tom Cruise. Oyelowo magically disappears into every role, but each of his performances are unforgettable.
