Last years Super bowl was a real colorful event with Madonna performing in the halftime show. There is much hype around who will be the half time performer for the upcoming Super bowl 2013 (Lady Gaga is one of the rumored halftime performer this time, but we should wait and see the celebrity who will be confirmed soon). And yes as for the past couple of years Bridgestone is the sponsor for the half time performance this year as well (admidst heavy speculations that Pepsi is jumping back in and will be sponsoring the half time performance for the Super bowl 2013).
So get excited for Super bowl Sunday (Feb 3rd) and enjoy the festival . Its already a colorful scene in the Mercedes Benz Superdome in New Orleans , as the spot is getting geared up for the big event and the ticket auctions have already started online along with the Super bowl 2013 merchandise sales catching up some serious heat .

There were a lot of great actors in the that are older than 40 years old, but who are the great actors under 40? I think there are some great up and coming actors that have already developed a strong resume of films and award nominations.
Here are my suggestions of the best young actors.
Starting with his brilliant portrayal of an autistic child in What's Eating Gilbert Grape, Leo DiCaprio Movies has enthralled us with his acting abilities. DiCaprio has already been nominated for 3 Academy Awards but I would argue that he should have more since he did not receive a nomination for Basketball Diaries, J. Edgar or Catch Me if You Can. As a testament to his abilities, Martin Scorsese has come back to DiCaprio four times for a lead in his films.
While Christian Bale Movies has been in a number of blockbuster films like Christopher Nolan's Batman, many may not realize that he has also made several stunning portrayals in some small independent films. He won a Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of Dicky Ecklund in The Fighter. However, my favorite Bale role was as Alfred Borden in The Prestige, a fantastic film about two rival magicians in the late 1800s and their bitter lifelong feud. Finally, you must see Bale as Trevor Reznik in The Machinist, the stunning portrayal of a lunatic wasting away based on a trauma that we learn of throughout the film. He lost over 40 pounds for this part and it is shocking to see his wasted frame.
It was The Notebook in 2004 that really put Ryan Gosling Movie on the map. However, it was 2011 when Gosling exploded onto the scene with roles in several top notch films including Blue Valentine, Ides of March and Drive. Gosling has only been nominated for one Academy Award so far but that will change. His skills are very strong and I expect him to be a fixture at the Oscars for many years to come.
What do you think? Who else deserves mention in this list of the best actors under 40?

Rivalries have forever been the true core of athletic motivation. They have been the make-it or break-it games of the year. They have defined what pride really means for a team. They have shown what school is better, and what city has fallen. They have defined what leadership is. To stand your ground, own your house. Never have we let them stand on our faces. To lose one year is to fight back for vengeance. To win one year is to defend the next.
The greatest rivalries in college football where born on pride. With traditions deeply enrooted in the blood of the school, no team has fallen without a fight. A number one team does not blink as they approach an unranked rival. There is so much at stake. Anything can happen in a rival game. As Oklahoma marches on the field to take on Texas in the Red River Rivalry, only one will win, but not one will give up. As Michigan gets stomped on by Ohio State, they do not just cry with defeat, they plan on reversing the order the next year. Auburn may take a beating from current national powerhouse Alabama, but they will surely not let them take their pride.
To all who cannot wait for the sunny days of summer to be over so college football season can begin, this article is for you. Keep on waiting just a bit longer and be prepared to shine your pride. Remember what your team stands for.
