It's raining men! Hallelujah.
The oldest of this year's MTV Movie Awards nominees for Best Male Performance is 25 (welcome to senior-citizen status, Robert Pattinson). But these actors are anything but immature.
And if you think playing a vampire, a werewolf, a wizard, a computer genius or a grieving big brother is easy, then you don't know anything about the following five young men.
Daniel Radcliffe, 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1'
Radcliffe started the "Harry Potter" series as a boy wizard, but in "Deathly Hallows," he's well on the path to becoming a man. Leading his friends on a quest to find and destroy the six Horcruxes that could bring down Voldemort, Harry must contend not just with the dangers of his mission, but also with the potential fracturing of his friendship with Ron. The fact that Radcliffe -- whose acting has matured alongside Harry's wizarding skills -- plays it all so well? That ain't magic, son.
Jesse Eisenberg, 'The Social Network'
Previously, Jesse Eisenberg was known for playing geeks ("Zombieland," "Adventureland"). But in "The Social Network," he plays... well, fine, a geek. Yet what a geek he is! Arrogant, brilliant and alienating, this Mark Zuckerberg isn't particularly a guy we'd want to befriend (though we'd totally friend him on Facebook, because he's Mark Zuckerberg). But thanks to Eisenberg's masterful performance, he's never less than compelling to watch. Not bad for a nerd.
Robert Pattinson, 'The Twilight Saga: Eclipse'
Guys, it takes a lot more than soulful gazes, heartfelt declarations of love and awesome hair to play Edward Cullen, aka The Hottest, Most Sensitive Vampire Ever. Just you try tearing a man's jugular out one second and then proposing to your sweetheart the next. But seriously... There's a reason R.Pattz has captured the hearts of many a teenage (and grown-up) girl, and it's that he's sympathetic and believable as the immortal who, against all reason, is passionately in love with a mere human. How can Bella resist? How can we?
Taylor Lautner, 'The Twilight Saga: Eclipse'
If there were an MTV Movie Awards category for Best Abs, Mr. Lautner would win that thing hands-down. Alas, there is not... but he's still got a chance for the burgeoning Team Jacob to vote him into the top spot here. In "Eclipse," Jacob has some fairly reasonable arguments in favor of Bella's picking him, including "We're both human, kinda," and "I can keep you warm at night with my -- oops! -- shirtless body." And in all fairness to Lautner, there's far more to his portrayal of Jacob than mere shirtlessness. Anyone who's ever suffered from unrequited love (or in this case, semi-requited love) can relate.
Zac Efron, 'Charlie St. Cloud'
Efron gained fame for the "High School Musical" movies, but he's since proven that he has real acting chops, in "17 Again," the indie "Me and Orson Welles" and now "Charlie St. Cloud." Critics didn't love the weepfest of a film, but even those who trashed the movie praised Efron's clear-eyed, nuanced performance as a graveyard caretaker who can't move beyond the death of his younger brother. It's clear that Efron has graduated from teen fare -- now all he needs is a movie worthy of his talents. Who would have thought we'd ever say that about basketball stud Troy Bolton?
