Tune in every day this week for exclusive interviews with these pending graduates and your chance to vote for the student body president - the one you think holds the brightest future in the industry.

He just barely missed out on playing Peter Parker in "The Amazing Spider-Man," but something tells us he won't be away from the funny pages for long. Josh Hutcherson has been voted Most Likely to Play a Superhero as part of The New Class, and we've got a long list of suggested comic book characters that he could bring to life with ease.

But even if he doesn't strap on the spandex anytime soon, Hutcherson's got his fair share of big screen heroism already under his belt and lined up for the future. After the jump, check out some of Josh's most action-packed career highlights!

She can sing, she can dance, and she can act: Julianne Hough has got it all. And that's exactly why she makes our New Class roster as this year's Triple Threat, backed up on the big screen by her work in "Burlesque" and the upcoming "Footloose."

Even nice girls have a mean streak. Take Lily Collins, for instance: the young actress, with credits like the heart-warming "The Blind Side" and the pulse-pounding "Abduction" to her name, is just as likely to bring you baked goods on a bad day as she is to kick bad guy butt when the need arises.

That's why we've bestowed Lily with the title of The Ass-Kicking Girl Next Door as part of the New Class, and we think her resume of past and future credits more than speaks to her sweetheart side and her badass streak. Check out her career highlights past the jump!

Whether he was lamenting his impossibly far (yet dreadfully close) lover on seedy Fleet Street, or making a name for himself as a cunning and ruthless sorcerer in the wizarding world, there's no question about it: Jamie Campbell Bower has been busy.

The actor's about to get a whole lot busier, too. Campbell Bower, dubbed The Next Johnny Depp of the New Class, has already appeared in two of the biggest franchises of recent memory, and he's on the cusp of adding a third in the form of "Mortal Instruments."

But these aren't his only accomplishments, far from it. Check out JCB's greatest hits to date beyond the jump!

On Thursday night, "The Office" fans finally learned who would be heading up the Scranton branch of Dunder Mifflin. James Spader's creepy, kooky Robert California would act as CEO and Ed Helms' bumbling, well-meaning Andy is now the new Michael Scott.

Fans learned that after Robert staged a coup and pushed out Kathy Bates' Jo Bennett out as CEO, he then hired Andy to helm Scranton. But, he hasn't gone far. While Andy sits in Michael's old office, Robert does all his work from the conference room. In addition to the shifting power within the department, Jim and Pam are also expecting and the planking trend hit town.

Only four competitors remain in the Harry Potter World Cup, which means we're just days away from reaching a conclusion to this grand tournament of witchcraft and wizardry. But who's going to make it to the final round? Will Privet Drive champion Severus Snape blast his way to the top after his stunning victory over Harry, or does Hermione Granger have some tricks up her sleeve? Can Ron Weasley hold his own against Sirius Black, the same wizard who took on Lord Voldemort and Draco Malfoy and emerged victorious?

Voting for the Final Four will last until Sunday (July 10) at midnight. The final duel launches promptly at 12:01 AM EST on July 11 and will be announced later that day during our live-stream coverage of the "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2" red carpet in New York City.

The Boy Who Lived may be gone, but there are still four people very near and dear to his heart in contention for the Harry Potter World Cup championship. Snape and Hermione are already slugging it out, and now it's time to turn our attention to the only other duel in this round: Harry's best friend versus Harry's godfather. Let the battle begin!

Voting for the Final Four will last until Sunday (July 10) at midnight. The final duel launches promptly at 12:01 AM EST on July 11 and will be announced later that day during our live-stream coverage of the "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2" red carpet in New York City.

(1) Ron Weasley vs. (3) Sirius Black
In one corner stands the last remaining Weasley, a young wizard who matured over the course of seven novels and movies and countless adventures alongside best pal Harry. In the other is Sirius Black, Harry's godfather and James Potter's best friend. There's a lot of history at play here, but it's not their past that matters: it's the present. Both men hold special places in "Potter" fandom's collective heart, but in the end, only one can advance. Should it be Ron, a character who transformed dramatically throughout Jo Rowling's fantasy epic? Or does your vote go to the Prisoner of Azkaban and his unstoppably cool mustache? It surely won't be an easy battle for either of these wizards.

It's hard to imagine the Harry Potter World Cup without Harry Potter still vying for the title, isn't it? But that's the exact situation we're facing now after Potions master Severus Snape blew past the Boy Who Lived to make it into the Final Four. With Harry's defeat under his belt, is there anyone -- even Hermione Granger -- who can stand between him and the championship? Looks like we're about to find out!

Voting for the Final Four will last until Sunday (July 10) at midnight. The final duel launches promptly at 12:01 AM EST on July 11 and will be announced later that day during our live-stream coverage of the "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2" red carpet in New York City.

(2) Severus Snape vs. (1) Hermione Granger
The smartest witch of her age has had little to no trouble making it this far into the World Cup, so there's no question that she's facing her toughest opponent yet. Not only does Severus have fan support on his side, but he just, you know, killed Harry Potter. If the Boy Who Lived couldn't handle the Half-Blood Prince, what chance does Hermione stand? Still, something tells me that based on the amount of support that Hermione has enjoyed throughout this competition, Snape is going to have his hands full in this duel. Don't engrave his name on the Cup just yet, folks -- this round is far from over.
