ROLE Rudy Grimes, a Michael Myers-obsessed teen

WHAT’S HOT His campus chef cooks up some scary moments that could make you jump out of your seat. Which shows some range, considering that his role as tough guy with a heart Derek in 2001’s ”Save the Last Dance” was more likely to make you swoon.

WHAT’S NOT It’s time to grow up and leave the whole teen flick world behind.

WHAT’S NEXT Starring opposite Ice Cube and Cedric the Entertainer in ”Barbershop,” a movie about a day in the life of Chicago haircutters
