Television Without Pity

In the new Fox series "Touch" (which previews January 25 before officially launching March 19), we're treated to a subtle performance by a child actor who has to serve as the centerpiece of an emotional, complex series ... without ever saying a single word. But David Mazouz, who plays Jake, the autistic son of Kiefer Sutherland's character, effortlessly brings his role to life. It's a challenge, but he's not the only young actor who is turning out a scene-stealing performance. Here are the other kids and tweens who have already captured our attention and hopefully have bright futures ahead of them.
