    Dev Patel, Kaya Scoledario and Nicholas Hoult can all thank BBC's "Skins" for their career breakthroughs, and now Jack O'Connell can do the same. He's touted for a part in next year's sequel "300: Rise Of An Empire," but it looks like he's already making the leap to an awards season player.

    Dane DeHaan Among Those In The Mix To Lead Angelina Jolie's 'Unbroken'

    Angelina Jolie's greatest battle this year might just be her valiant effort against cancer, surviving thanks to a double mastectomy, modestly going public with her story and then heading back to work on her next project. It's the true WWII story "Unbroken," and after gaining a rewrite from the Coen ...
