Beloved for his work on critically acclaimed dramas "The Wire" and "Friday Night Lights," Jordan's movie career got a big boost last year from a powerhouse performance in the indie "Fruitvale Station." "Fruitvale" was the hit of the film festivals and Oscar buzz for the actor grows louder every day. Catch him this month in R-rated romcom "That Awkward Moment."
Jordan wasn't the only person on the list with a connection to daytime. Kelly Osbourne, daughter of The Talk's Sharon Osbourne, was also on the list for her reinvention as a talk show host and fashion icon. Dave Franco, the brother of Oscar nominee and former General Hospital star James Franco, was included for his work as an actor-writer-producer.
