    For most of us, a good summer means boozy rooftop barbecues, eight-hour park hangs, and back-alley make-out sessions. The 25 people who made this list aren't most of us. In the coming months, these bright young things will be rolling out (or have already rolled out) a slew of exciting projects that are set to launch them into a new stratosphere of public consciousness.

    There's a bulky TV star who's looking to cement his place as one of Hollywood's go-to leading men. A young Brooklyn director who's poised to become the millennial Nora Ephron. A British crooner with vocals so syrupy, they're proof that God does indeed exist.

    While some of these names might already ring a bell, others will be total revelations. One thing's for sure: If everything goes according to plan, these 25 breakout stars are about to have the Best. Summer. Ever.
