Bryce Dallas Howard
After honing her skills in the theater world, the virtually unknown Howard landed a plum role in M. Night Shyamalan's The Village, stepping in to play a part that was originally intended for Kirsten Dunst. Her performance as a sheltered blind girl proved sufficiently haunting and generated serious buzz.
Howard reteamed with Shyamalan for Lady in the Water and later played a fitting Shakespearean lady in As You Like It, earning a Golden Globe nod. She also donned platinum locks to play Peter Parker's love interest Gwen Stacy in the big-budget Spider-Man 3.
In this epic crime caper based on real-life events, an out-of-luck gold prospector and a willing geologist pull off a brazen scam. Falsely claiming to have located a major gold deposit in Indonesia, the duo proceeds to hoodwink the experts.
