Cinema Blend has done a listing of The Next 20 A-List Actors Who Will Populate the A-List, and listed amongst such notables as Justin Timberlake, Ben Foster, Anna Kendrick, Kieran Culkin, Michael Pitt, and Chloe Moretz is you guessed it, Mr. Felton himself.
I can’t decide if what they said about Tom is favorable or not, but since they made him an odds-on favorite, I’ll let you decide.
I’m not convinced, but if interviews and Youtube videos are any indication, Tom Felton sucks. Which doesn’t mean he’s a terrible actor—the opposite in fact is true. While his cameo in Get Him To The Greek gains him more street cred with me, his incredible performances in the Harry Potter franchise are what gains him street cred with 95% of everyone else. Which is sort of funny, because Tom Felton/Draco Malfoy only accounts for like 7% of Harry Potter references. Outside of Harry Potter, Felton’s been writhing in the muck of a bunch of gritty indie flicks that only like 3% of the population has seen (.5% accounted for by Felton’s family members) —case in point, you ever heard of 13 Hours or The Disappeared? This equivocating has caused Mr. Felton to be about as popular as banana peppers on a Subway sandwich. Of course, Vegas odds says there’s like a 4% chance of him somehow ending up on the A-List. Because I’m a risk taker, and because I’m pretty sure Felton might just be an acting genius, I’d take the over in a second (22% of you should be smart enough to, too).
