41 Peter Billingsley - A Christmas Story
42 Freddie Highmore - Finding Neverland
43 Anna Grace Bradley - Third On a Match
44 Macaulay Culkin - The Good Son

Wow, this kid was a psychopath! - BobG

45 Jack O' Connell - Starred Up

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

46 Gaby Hoffmann - Field of Dreams
47 Michael Oliver - Problem Child
48 Bobby 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.

49 Anton Yelchin - Alpha Dog
50 Ryan Kelley - Prayers for Bobby
51 Ryan Kelley - Still Green
52 Noah Ringer - Cowboys & Aliens

Noah was also Aang in The Last Airbender, even though that movie is thought of as a bit naff, Noah still has potential.

53 Rupert Grint - Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
54 Cameron Boyce - Grown Ups 2 Cameron Boyce - Grown Ups 2 Cameron Boyce is an American teen actor best known for his roles in the feature films Mirrors, Eagle Eye, Descendants, Grown Ups, and Grown Ups 2, as well as for his starring roles as Luke Ross on the Disney Channel comedy series Jessie and as Conor on the Disney XD series Gamer's Guide to Pretty Much ...read more.

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!

55 Hayley Mills - The Parent Trap

The original and still best job on this movie

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

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