The new movie, The Stanford Prison Experiment, is about a group of university students role playing as guards and prisoners for a study on human behavior.

The cast is made up of talented young men that all have the potential to reach major stardom in Hollywood. The trailer was entrancing and promises an intense interpretation of the extreme and poignant university experiment from the 70s. With this bunch, I believe we should be in for some captivating and compelling performances!

To see these boys in action, check out the trailer for The Stanford Prison Experiment below. (The movie was released on July 17th 2015.)

With that being said, let's see what these boys were up to before this movie and what audiences can expect from them next.

Ezra Miller

Miller has been active in Hollywood since 2006 and is is arguably best known for his work in the drama We Need to Talk About Kevin (2011), and the film adaption of the young adult book Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012). He has been praised for most of his performances

This young talent will be making his debut as the Flash in next year's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and then starring as Barry Allen/The Flash in The Flash movie scheduledfor release in 2018.

Nicholas Braun

Braun first flew into my periphery via 2005's superhero movie, Sky High, and then went on to feature in the Perks of Being a Wallflower film a few years later. He also appeared in the 2015 remake of the classic horror film, Poltergeist. Now, with five projects in post-production, there are high hopes for Braun to have a promising future in the film industry.

Keir Gilchrist

I first noticed Gilchrist in It's Kind Of A Funny Story, starring opposite Emma Roberts back in 2010. Five years later, he has stayed very active in Hollywood appearing in Family Guy and 2014's shocking thriller, It Follows. With five other projects in post-production, I'll bet we'll be seeing more good things from Keir Gilchrist very soon.

Thomas Mann

I first heard of Mann this year from the indie flick Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (2015). His charming performance captivated and enthralled me and so it intrigues me to see him in this different role. Best known for Project X (2012) and Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters (2013), Mann now has six works in production all coming out in the next couple of years. It's looking bright for this young star.

Tye Sheridan

Tye Sheridan is making his splash in Hollywood appearing in the highly acclaimed movies, The Tree of Life and Mud. He is set to play young Cyclops in the new X-Men: Apocalypse film and has four other films in production. With such young talent, this 19 year old actor could be a household name very soon.

Ki Hong Lee

Lee is my favourite of the bunch. I first saw him in Youtube short films and fell in love with his cheerful energy and strong acting abilities. He can be seen in Tina Fey's Netflix original, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and has gained popularity with wider audiences through his work in the young adult franchise, Maze Runner (2014) that is expecting its sequel Maze Runner: Scorch Trials to be released in 2015. I hope to see much more of Lee in the future, on both big and small screens.

So, Who do you think will hit it big in Hollywood?
