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:

“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.

Brian Maillard He/Him in “Frank and Penelope“
From fandpmovie.com, “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.”

Asher Grodman He/Him in “Ghosts“
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.
Asher is represented by Talent Agencies: CornerStone Talent Agency and SDB Partners, Manager: Burstein Company. Learn more HERE.
