Our look at the future of the 2013 MTV Movie Awards nominees continues with a glimpse into the future for the Best Male Performance category. These five leading men have a ton coming up, so here’s our handy roundup.
Click past the jump to see what Ben Affleck, Bradley Cooper, Channing Tatum, Daniel Day-Lewis, and Jamie Foxx have coming up for them.
And remember to tune into the 2013 MTV Movie Awards on April 14 at 9 p.m. ET.
Now that he’s Academy Award-winning director Ben Affleck, the “Argo” helmer will spend 2013 acting in “Runner, Runner,” a gambling-centric crime thriller that co-stars Justin Timberlake and Gemma Arterton, and prepping his next directorial effort, “Live by Night,” based on the novel of the same name by Dennis Lehane. He will not, however, be directing “Star Wars” — though he was a top contender — or starring in “Focus” with Kristen Stewart, which he had to drop out of to work on “Live by Night.”
In short: A lot of Jennifer Lawrence movies. Well, “two” would be more precise. Cooper will star along his “Silver Linings Playbook” cast mate in “Serena” and the next project from David O. Russell. Aside from spending some quality time with JLaw, Cooper will be heading out west for the final installment in the “Hangover” trilogy (in theaters in May) and “Jane Got a Gun,” a Western starring Natalie Portman and Joel Edgerton.
You mean besides taking over the world? Tatum will be helping save it in “White House Down,” where he’ll play a riff on John McClane by protecting President Jamie Foxx, and in “Jupiter Ascending,” the next sci-fi epic from the Wachowkis that co-stars fellow Movie Awards nominee Mila Kunis. We’ll also get a look at Tatum’s more serious side in “Foxcatcher,” a bizarre true life story from “Moneyball” director Bennett Miller.
Only one man knows the answer to that question: Daniel Day-Lewis. Just assume that an Academy Award will be involved.
He’s doing what many an actor does actor collecting an Academy Award nomination, playing a super villain in a comic book movie. As Electro, Foxx will go toe-to-wall-crawling-toe with returning Spidey, Andrew Garfield, in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.”
Will Jennifer Lawrence get her silver lining in the form of a Golden Popcorn? Which beefcake will sizzle in our brand-new Best Shirtless Performance category?
