For the past two weeks, we’ve been filling you in on all the talented young stars wearing TEMPTU in NYLON’s Young Hollywood Issue. For our final post, we’re filling you in on three acting powerhouses: Taylor Schilling, Mason Lee,and Thomas Mcdonell.
Breaking into show business at the tender age of 10, Taylor Schilling made her first stage debut in a production of Fiddler on the Roof. This young starlet can now be seen on the big screen for her starring role in Atlas Shrugged:Part 1,( film adaption of the 1957 novel Atlas Shrugged). Taylor is also super excited about her upcoming movie The Lucky One, set to hit theaters next year. In The Lucky One, Taylor will be co-starring with Disney heart-throb Zac Efron.
Despite growing up around the film industry, daddy is director Ang Lee, Mason Lee wanted to experience the acting world on his own. Instead of using his father’s influence to jump right into the Hollywood scene, Lee is honing his craft a la the famous Tisch drama program at NYU. Looks like all those acting classes paid off, because Mason is nothing less than hysterical in his latest role Teddy, in The Hangover Part II! This summer hit is getting rave reviews with Mason Lee and it’s all-star cast including Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifanakis, Jamie Chung, Ed Helms and Mike Tyson!
Splitting his time between studying studio art at NYU and playing guitar for his band Moon, Thomas Mcdonell didn’t plan on Hollywood being in his future. However, after Disney gave him an offer he couldn’t refuse, Mcdonell found himself entering into a “whole new world” of acting. Mcdonell was cast as Jesse Richter in Disney’s new movie Prom, and even a hand at the soundtrack! This lucky actor/musician is really on a role as he is about to go into production on the eagerly anticipated film The Spectacular Now.
What young star or starlet do you want to see wearing TEMPTU next? Let us know!!!!
