In our regular Talent Profiles feature, we’re highlighting some of the biggest names that MN2S have worked with.
Ranging from actors to sportspersons, models to celebrity chefs, there’s no niche that our extensive roster doesn’t cover. This week we’re spotlighting the talents of some universally beloved big-screen stars.
A character actor who found fame after appearing on HBO’s landmark series Girls, Adam Driver is now one of Hollywood’s top talents. Though he began his career in the Marines, a medical discharge led him to enrol at Julliard and develop a talent that’s seen him portray sensitive and dark characters across both indie films like 2016’s Paterson and major box-office flicks, including Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Actress, producer, director, activist and businesswoman: Eva Longoria is a multitalented force of nature. The woman named as Hollywood’s most beautiful by People magazine made her name inhabiting the role of Gabrielle Solis on ABC’s phenomenally successful Desperate Housewives, following this with a move on to the big screen. Longoria has also appeared in several advertising campaigns and holds modelling contracts with L’Oreal, New York & Co, and Hanes.
Brendan Fraser is a Canadian-American actor best known for playing Rick O’Connell in the hugely successful The Mummy trilogy. He’s also appeared in leading roles across several Hollywood pictures including Gods And Monsters, Journey to the Center of the Earth and the Oscar favourite Crash. Recent years have seen the actor move into the television world, pleasing fans with roles in The Affair, Texas Rising and Trust.
Jennifer Love Hewitt
Jennifer Love Hewitt rose to fame as a teen star with a role in the classic horror film I Know What You Did Last Summer. After releasing three successful studio albums with Atlantic Records, she returned to our screens for 2001’s Heartbreakers and 2002’s The Tuxedo, before settling into long-running roles on CBS’ Ghost Whisperer and The Client List. TV Guide named Hewitt as the sexiest woman on television in 2008.
Veteran actor John Goodman has delighted viewers for over three decades, appearing in over 50 films and picking up countless awards. He’s perhaps best known as Dan Conner on the hit US television series Roseanne, but much of his credibility stems from his close association with the genius directors, the Coen Brothers: Goodman has appeared in Raising Arizona, Barton Fink, O Brother, Where Art Thou? And The Big Lebowski. He’s also a talented voice actor, providing the husky tones of Sulley in the timeless Disney animation Monsters, Inc.
A phenomenally talented actress, Kristen Stewart is perhaps best known for her career-defining role as Bella Swan in the Twilight Saga film series, a franchise that grossed over three billion dollars worldwide and made Stewart the world’s highest-paid actress in 2010 and 2012. Since her success in Twilight, Stewart has eschewed big-budget roles in favour of indie movies with artistic credibility: most recently, the ghostly thriller Personal Shopper. Stewart has also stepped behind the camera to direct short films including 2017’s Come Swim.
The youngest thespian ever to win an Academy Award for Best Actor, Adrien Brody is one of Hollywood’s leading lights. After appearing in the classic Terrence Malick war film The Thin Red Line, Brody took on a career-defining role in 2002’s biographical drama The Pianist, playing a musician in war-torn Poland. Since then, he’s contributed to films from Wes Anderson and M. Night Shyamalan, among others.
One of the most successful actresses of her generation, Meg Ryan has achieved global recognition and universal acclaim. She’s appeared in a number of beloved romantic comedies, most notably 1989’s When Harry Met Sally and 1993’s Sleepless in Seattle, in addition to a wider array of titles that includes Top Gun, Proof of Life, Addicted To Love and The Women.
Though Mark Hamill has made countless appearances across stage and screen in his extensive career, he’s undoubtedly known best for his portrayal of Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars series. Though this role has defined his career, he’s acted in a number of successful action movies and television series and even carved out a niche in the voice acting world, contributing voice-over to animations and video games.
Nominated for two Academy Awards, a BAFTA and four SAG Awards, Winona Ryder is undoubtedly one of America’s finest actresses. She’s appeared in a range of titles, from the historical (The Age of Innocence) to the macabre (Edward Scissorhands) to the light-hearted (Mr. Deeds), consistently bringing a unique spirit to her performances.
Sam Rockwell has been relied on by Hollywood for decades to flesh out interesting and unique characters in films that consistently receive critical acclaim. You may have seen him in 2009’s Moon or 2012’s Seven Psychopaths but it was his supporting role in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri that earned the actor his first Academy Award and permanently installed him as one of America’s finest talents.
