Tristan "Mack" Wilds

Best known for his role as Michael Lee in HBO's gritty original series The Wire, Tristan Wilds is quickly becoming a staple name among Hollywood's young elite. Since age seven, he's been perfecting his talent and, at 15, he scored his first big gig, landing a role in TeenNick's Miracle's Boys. Years later, the 22-year-old TV star has carved out a huge chunk of success in the industry in films like Half Nelson, The Secret Life of Bees and the Tuskegee Airmen-inspired film Red Tails. But not only does the New York native have a knack for acting, he is also a signed musician. Three of his songs, "Kim," "2 Girls" and "When You Leave This Club," were featured on the fourth season of CW's hit TV drama 90210, on which he stars. Now performing under the name Mack Wilds, he released his debut album New York: A Love Story, which was nominated for Best Urban Contemporary Album at the 2014 Grammy Awards.
