Move over Schwarzenegger, Stallone, Statham and Jovovich. There's a new crop of hot young action stars muscling in on your territory.

Many of this year's most anticipated action flicks star established actors who are newcomers to the genre, like Ryan Reynolds in 'Green Lantern,' Seth Rogen as 'The Green Hornet' and James Franco in 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes.' Naturally, there are also a host of flicks starring tried-and-true action heroes, too, such as Jason Statham in 'The Mechanic' and Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford in 'Cowboys & Aliens.'

Others, like this week's release 'Conan the Barbarian,' feature relatively unknown actors carrying huge blockbuster hopefuls. You just have to take one look at 'Conan' star Jason Momoa to know he can pull it off, though. That man was built for action roles. Plus he's easy on the eyes, which certainly doesn't hurt.
