*Okay, so a little while ago profiled the male actors to watch in 2013.
What about the women? Here are the picks.
VIOLA DAVIS – Twice-nominated for Academy Awards, the luminous Davis is firmly established as one of Hollywood’s stars. In 2013, she has two big features coming out – the vampire flick Beautiful Creatures and the sci-fi epic Ender’s Game.
PAULA PATTON – The more Paula Patton on screen, the better. The Precious and Mission: Impossible star will re-team with her Déjà Vu co-star Denzel Washington (and Mark Wahlberg) in the action flick 2 Guns.
CARMEN EJOGO – Ejogo – the wife of the extraordinarily talented Jeffrey Wright – is a fantastic actress in her own right, appearing in the great TV movie Lackawanna Blues and the underrated Sam Mendes film Away We Go. 2013 offers her a real breakout opportunity in the conspiracy-theory TV series Zero Hour.
JESSICA LUCAS – Another rising black actress seen on a wealth of TV series (90210, Psych, Melrose Place) who will have a showy role in the Evil Dead remake. She could be a new scream queen.
FREEMA AGYEMAN – This English actress is a certifiable star across the pond, starring in Doctor Who and its spinoff Torchwood along with Law and Order: UK (wow, they have it over there, too!) She gets her first crack at American stardom in the Sex and the City prequel The Carrie Diaries.
ROCHELLE AYTES – Aytes is a New York native who’s been featured in a Tyler Perry movie (Madea’s Family Reunion) and a series (House of Payne) and gemmed in a role on Desperate Housewives. She aims for TV stardom as one of the leads in the new ABC series Mistresses.
