Hometown: London, England

Known for: Harry Potter, Woman in Black, How to Succeed in Business …

Why he’s a JILF: Daniel was raised in London in a secular home to a Jewish mother and Protestant father. Daniel expressed an interest in acting from the age of 5, landing his first big role 5 years later in BBC’s David Copperfield. In 2000, Harry Potter’s producer asked Radcliffe to audition after seeing his performance in the aforementioned BBC miniseries. Since the contract required shooting all 7 films in Los Angeles, his parents didn’t want him to try out. After a lot of negotiations, Daniel was permitted to become Harry Potter. Now, over 10 years later, Harry/Daniel is all grown up starring in horror flick The Woman in Black and a few successful Broadway shows. Look for Daniel in the upcoming, Kill Your Darlings, portraying beat poet Allen Ginsberg.

Known for: Internationally acclaimed fashion designer to the stars

Why he’s a JILF: Zac was raised in SoHo in a Jewish family. His passion for fashion began at an extremely young age. As a child, he would steal yarmulkes from his grandparents’ synagogue to make ball gowns for dolls. At 16, he entered the pre-college program at Parsons The New School for Design, and interned with established designers. Zac made his big break in 2000 when a dress he designed for Naomi Campbell was well received in the fashion community. Zac is said to have a unique ‘feminine esthetic’ and is a favorite to dozens of celebrities including Natalie Portman, Rihanna, Kate Winslet, and Beyonce.

After being named one of Variety’s ’10 Actors to Watch’ in 2007, his career exploded, landing roles in feature films Lions for Lambs, The other Boleyn Girl and The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.

Adam notes scoring a winning shot at a local YMCA championship basketball game as the moment that he gained the confidence to be successful. Adam and his high school best friend, Jesse Carmichael, formed the band Kara’s Flowers while in their senior year. Although the band appeared on Beverly Hills, 90210, they didn’t receive much commercial success, and decided to disband. The friends moved to New York, got re-inspired and formed Maroon 5 making Adam the international star he is today. Adam has collaborated with dozens of musical acts, is currently a mentor on The Voice, and is set to appear in next season of FX’s American Horror Story.

His first role was as Billy Crystal’s son in City Slickers. Jake wanted to pursue acting, but his parents were very particular about which roles he was allowed to accept. After graduating from high school, Jake decided to focus his attentions on acting, landing his first lead role in October Sky, but Jake didn’t become a household name until he starred in cult favorite, Donnie Darko. Since then, Jake has starred in numerous critically acclaimed films including The Good Girl, Brokeback Mountain, Jarhead, and Brothers.
