How He'll Spend the Fall: Treasure hunting with Bilbo Baggins in Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey."
Upcoming: Two more sequels to "The Hobbit" and an untitled tornado thriller from New Line Cinema.
Why He's Ready to Break Through: Another well-known name in England hoping for his U.S. breakthrough, the dashing British actor has starred in several hit BBC America series, including "Robin Hood" (he played the evil Guy of Gisborne) and "MI-5."
His portrayal as dwarf leader Thorin Oakenshield in the upcoming trilogy could provide Armitage's career with the kind of boost enjoyed by "The Lord of the Rings" star Viggo Mortensen - another underappreciated supporting actor who became a major player thanks to his work on the J.R.R. Tolkien-inspired films.
