Slide 1 of 20
Fresh Faces: Ron Livingston, Jeffrey Wright, Patricia Arquette
Last Big Roles: Game Change for Livingston; House for Wright; Medium for Arquette
Why They’re Buzzy: This trio of talented character actors joins the ranks of bootleggers and bureaucrats as wealthy businessman Roy Phillips, ”king” of Harlem Dr. Valentin Narcisse, and speakeasy owner Sally Wheet, respectively. This season marks Arquette’s return to TV after a guest stint on Law & Order: SVU as well as Wright’s biggest TV role to date (he’ll appear in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire this November). Livingston also has a long history with HBO, perhaps most memorably his turn as Post-It break-up artist Jack Berger on Sex and the City and as an anti-Palin politico in Game Change. —Maricela Gonzalez
