The Top 10 Breakthroughs Of 2012
#6: Dane DeHaan
We can probably credit DeHaan's sudden emergence as a talent to watch to a single role, as the troubled kid with sudden superpowers in the surprise hit from earlier this year, Chronicle. But DeHaan has already made good on that promise with an entirely different, small, and very moving role in the little-seen Lawless, and even in a seconds-long appearance at the beginning of Lincoln (in the scene with David Oyelowo, no less!) You've probably heard that DeHaan has already signed on to play Harry Osborn in the upcoming Spider-Man sequel, but that ought to be only the beginning of the major roles we see him take on from here.
