Playing Why Josh Peck, Priyanka Chopra & Jake McDorman Are 3 Breakout Stars of 2015 Fall TV!

Fall TV is almost here, which means it's time to get to know a brand-new batch of actors.

A plethora of new faces will be appearing on our small screens over the next few months, but there are three stars that will shine brighter than all others in the TV galaxy.

So we at ET are breaking down why Josh Peck (Grandfathered), Priyanka Chopra (Quantico), and Jake McDorman (Limitless) are three of our 2015 fall TV breakout stars.

Nickelodeon fans might remember Josh Peck from the long-running series Drake & Josh, but now the funnyman and Vine superstar is all grown up -- and looking great!

"There was a slight level of awkwardness there were moments when I ate my feelings," Peck said of his nearly 100-pound weight loss since his teen days." For the most part I was like many teens figuring it out, and not necessarily total comfortable with myself, but I look back at that time pretty fondly now."

Now, Peck will star as the surprise son of Full House hunk John Stamos in Grandfathered. Long story, short: the upcoming Fox comedy is one of our top new TV series of the Fall and Peck's performance as Gerald is endearingly hilarious.

Peck confessed to ET that having Stamos as his on-screen dad is "dreamy overload," but little does he know, the 28-year-old actor is about to be one of this fall's most eligible TV bachelors.

Priyanka Chopra may look like a bombshell on the outside, but this 33-year-old actress is a complete and total badass on ABC's fall drama Quantico.

The former Miss World is eager to break stereotypes with her character Alex Parrish, a top-of-her-class recruit who is training to be an FBI agent. "Indian people have always been put into a box, a stereotype of what we should be like," Chopra recently explained to ET.

"I love [my character] because she's tough as nails, but she's still a woman. She doesn't have to be macho y to be an FBI agent," the Bollywood actress continued, "She's gentle and she's sexy, smart, sassy, treats boys the way usually boys treat women -- as dispensable."

Need we say more? Okay fine, we'll keep gushing. To echo Chopra's thoughts Alex is "like the female Jason Bourne" and for that reason and many more, she definitely tops our list of the ones to watch.

And last, but certainly not least, big screen fans might remember Jake McDorman from the 2014 big-screen hit American Sniper when he starred alongside Bradley Cooper. So when CBS wanted to do a continuation series based on the 2011 film Limitless, Cooper knew McDorman was his man.

"I wasn't auditioning for it at first, but when it was presented to me, it was like, 'Hey, this is one of the best pilots this year, it's based on the movie, Bradley's an executive producer," McDorman explained. "So it looked awesome. And then they're like, 'And he really thinks you would be great for the lead.' And I was like, 'Pfft! No he doesn't, shut up."

McDorman confessed that having Cooper as the series executive producer is the "best boss" he's ever had. "I've just been such a fan of his for such a long time that now that he's actually lending like his time to me is actually the greatest gift he could ever give," the actor said.
