I have a handful of favorite actors I like to root for, these are the new actors I’m adding to my batch in 2022. You should, too. I offered an opportunity for directors, producers, and casting directors to nominate talented breakout performers. About 1/3 of these performers are working tooth-and-nail to make their own opportunities, supporting the philosophy that content creation is a great way to get seen in the best casting possible. Another third of this group has been cast in huge, high-profile projects for the first time. Take your time to look up each actor and be prepared to see them on screen again and again. I chose actors from every level of project and genre, so you’re bound to find a new favorite show or movie in here as well!

These actors have spectacular and imaginative projects coming out, don’t miss these breakout performances:

Paula Rhodes She/Her in “Delicate State

“The ingenious storytelling device that Paula Rhodes utilizes in the film makes the journey for the audience instantly intimate, personal, and unsettling in all the right ways.”

-Director America Young, founder of The Chimaera Project

“It’s a unique beast – shot over the course of my actual pregnancy with leads as a 2-man crew, it’s a docufiction that follows us and our impending parenthood in an alternate timeline where the US breaks out in civil war.”

-Paul Rhodes

Zack Gold He/Him in “Pam & Tommy

Whether you’ve seen him as Dustin on Santa Clarita Diet, the lead in Psycho Brother In Law, or Aiden in Mommy Would Never Hurt You – Zack’s always a stand-out performer although in this one he might be entirely unrecognizable as one of Tommy Lee’s besties. Nothing like this-

“Pam & Tommy” follows the story of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee’s relationship, going back to their whirlwind romance that started with them marrying after only knowing each other for 96 hours in 1995.

“Working with Sebastian Stan, Seth Rogan and Lily James over the course of a month was like taking a masterclass on character development. It was awe inspiring to witness, live, what they were creating. And as I was, too, physically departed from my “normal self”, clad in fake tattoos, fake piercings and bleached hair, I took a great deal of pride in being on a small part of this crazy journey with them.”

Stephen Peck They/Them/She/Her/He/Him in “Black Friday

“Black Friday is my first ever feature film. I couldn’t have had a better experience on set and was welcomed into a group of horror movie legends with open arms. We had a blast making it and I hope you all enjoy it just as much!”

-Stephen Peck

A group of toy store employees must protect each other from a horde of parasite infected shoppers.

“There’s something about being on set and having buckets of different-colored bloods and people in prosthetic face masks. It just feels real. It feels good.”

-Leading actror Devon Sawa to ew

Brian Maillard He/Him in “Frank and Penelope

“I am so excited for audiences to see the crazy, twisted world that Sean Patrick Flanery has created in his feature debut, “Frank and Penelope.” And it was a thrill to bring the role of Cleve to life. A grueling shoot in the West Texas heat really helped shape the soul of this tale of love, loss and misguided morality, as well as all the characters that inhabit it. “Frank and Penelope” will be released in the summer of 2022.”

-Brian Maillard

From, “Frank is on a road to nowhere when he stumbles into a run-down strip club where he sees Penelope dancing on a wobbly brass pole. This chance encounter ignites a love story that burns hotter than the West Texas blacktop. Leaving their broken lives in the rearview mirror, Frank and Penelope head West with no destination in mind but each other. But a chance meeting leads them to the “Table of Truth” with a seductive, charismatic cult leader who has a penchant for travelers’ darkest secrets – and his own ideas on sins of the flesh.  Two soulmates who had nothing to for live now find themselves in a bloody battle for life and love in a world where EVERYTHING is worth dying for.”

And you might have just seen him on American Crime Story-

Brian is represented by Entertainment Lab and the Osbrink Agency. More on IMDb.

Vivian Kerr She/Her in “SCRAP

“Making SCRAP my feature film writing, acting, and directorial debut has been a 4 year journey, and I hope audiences resonate with the character of Beth as she teeters on the precipice of homelessness. It’s a story about Los Angeles and how easy it can be in this city to slip through the cracks.”

– Vivian Kerr

SCRAP is about a young single mom (Vivian Kerr) struggling to hide her homelessness from her estranged brother (Anthony Rapp) and his wife (Lana Parrilla). A short film version of ‘SCRAP’ was shot as a proof of concept, the short was selected in over 30+ film festivals worldwide, and received 31 awards/nominations

Christine Weatherup She/Her in “See You Next Christmas

See You Next Christmas is an indie holiday romantic comedy written, directed, and starring Christine Weatherup. When chronically single Natalie and Logan continue to run into each other at the same holiday party year after year, they begin to wonder if maybe they’re meant to be together.

Read the full review HERE,

Christine Weatherup (BoschTownies)’s “Annie” has a great attitude, although described as a little controlling or neurotic, she is NOT. she is wonderful and I identify with her too much for any negative word against her. Her performance is beautiful, but I was already a fan (Bread and Butter). Also, it should be noted that “See You Next Christmas” was written and directed by Christine Weatherup, who wrote herself into perfect casting.”

Asher Grodman He/Him in “Ghosts

Asher Grodman – Photo credit: Emily Assiran

Personally, I’m a big fan of Ghosts. Trevor has a sharp wit and displays a surprisingly vulnerable side (while still landing crass frat humor) in his first season arc. I’m excited where his character goes – especially since it’s usually somewhere fun!

Asher Grodman plays Trevor in the CBS series GHOSTS, which follows a young couple whose inherited house is inhabited by many of the deceased previous residents. Trevor is a finance bro who died as he lived: partying at a drug-fueled rager in the late 1990s and now, he walks around for eternity with no pants.

Keiko Elizabeth She/Her in “City On A Hill

“I’ve loved exploring the world of Boston in the 1990s on City on a Hill. We shot most of season 2 and all of season 3 during Covid, and it’s been incredible to work with this cast and crew during such a high-anxiety time.”
