    "topical person"

    Hi,
    I'm looking for a term for a person who is 'hot,' interesting, 'current,' etc. right now. E.g. a magazine could have a section dedicated to "topical people" - correct me if I'm wrong, but topical doesn't strike me as the right word in this context. The 'people' I'm referring to here could just as well be b-list celebrities or presidential candidates, so the term should be quite general...
    Thank you!
