Last seen: Getting his wizard on in the movie version of Warcraft; earning raves for his turn as a gay activist in 2014's Pride
Next up: The hazing shockfest Goat, with Nick Jonas and James Franco; Oliver Stone's Snowden, with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zachary Quinto
Why we're watching: The steely-eyed newcomer brings elegance and grit. His penchant for queer-friendly fare is just gravy.
