C Flanigan/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) — What do actors Jonah Hill and Jaden Smith have in common with NBA star LeBron James?  Well, according to Forbes magazine, the three are part of a group of talented individuals under the age of 30 who are reinventing the world.

The magazine polled its readers and several panels of industry experts to compile its first-ever “30 Under 30” list of tomorrow’s brightest stars, none of whom have hit the big 3-0 yet.  Thirty people who are “making a difference” and who “matter” were chosen in each of 12 industries.

In entertainment, those who made Forbes’ list include Hill, Smith, James, Community star Donald Glover, Jane Levy of ABC’s Suburgatory, 14-year-old Hugo actress Chloe Grace Moretz, Oscar-nominated Winter’s Bone actress Jennifer Lawrence and Shailene Woodley, who stars in ABC Family’s The Secret Life of the American Teenager and most recently opposite George Clooney in The Descendants.
