42Macaulay Culkin - The Good Son

Wow, this kid was a psychopath! - BobG

43Will Poulter - Son of Rambow
44Jack O' Connell - Starred Up

A Skins alumni like Dakota Blue Richards, Jack O'Connell is all the rage in Hollywood right now.

45Christopher Mintz Plasse - Superbad

47Gaby Hoffmann - Field of Dreams
48Michael Oliver - Problem Child
49Bobby Driscoll - The Window

I faint when he does...see him in Disney's Treasure Island (1950), and watch those eyes!

At age 12, this film garnered him a special Oscar. Unfortunately, his was a brilliant star plucked from the heavens well before its time.

50Anton Yelchin - Alpha Dog
51Ryan Kelley - Prayers for Bobby
52Ryan Kelley - Still Green
53Rupert Grint - Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
54Cameron Boyce - Grown Ups 2

He plays excellent in Grown Ups 2 and in the Dinsney channel show Jessie. He was so good of an actor the role on Jessie was changed to fit him!

55Hayley Mills - The Parent Trap

The original and still best job on this movie

56Mark Lester - Oliver!
57Jack Wild - Oliver!

A rascall like performance as the Artful Dodger which got Jack an Academy award nomination, which he should have won.
