The Official "Underrated Movie Star" Thread.
I'll start:

It's a sign of sickness that Colin Firth isn't as famous as Colin Ferrell.

1. Vince Vaughn
He may not be underrated, but I just love him. He should be in more movies

2. Vincent D'Onfrio
Michael Palin (though he may not be so underrated across the pond)
Viggo Mortenson (he's only gotten famous 'cause of LotR)

67. I'll take some cheese and mustard with that ham, please
Loved him in the episode of Homicide where he guest-starred.

On Law & Order, not so much

3. Don Cheadle.
It seems he's getting more popular, but he really should be a superstar.

After Crash and Hotel Rwanda, if he doesn't there is no justice.

Out of one of the best ensemble casts ever, he was head and shoulders above.

60. Virginia Madsen /David Morse
Edited on Mon Oct-17-05 12:30 AM by Parrcrow
Morse more than holds his own with marquee actors like Jack Nicholson and Tom Hanks.

oops! this was intended as a reply to the original post.

35. I agree with y'all.
Don Cheadle is always so nice to watch... he makes very good acting choices, doesn't overplay, doesn't ham... very effective actor.

He's only annoying (although I like Adam Sandler movies) when he plays the man-child idiot like in Happy Gilmore, Billy Madison, and Little Nicky.

19. While we're on the subject...
...let's not forget Amy Madigan, who really hasn't gotten the roles or the fame she deserves. (Yes, she and Ed Harris are the Jessica Tandy and Hume Cronyn of the baby boom).

I should also mention Kate Nelligan, Marcia Gay Harden, Patricia Clarkson, and David Strathairn.

91. maybe after "Good Night and Good Luck"
David Strathairn will be more well-known. Have loved him since "Sneakers" and "Passion Fish"

So, let's also throw in there (speaking of Passion Fish) Alfre Woodard (though "Beauty Shop" was a shitty choice).

Loooooove Ed Harris.

Totally insane but that was the foundation of his acting genius.

Please note the past tense. RIP - November 23, 1991.

15. I saw him on TV last night in Dr. Zhivago on Turner Classic Movies
It was a small role, as a forced laborer in a train's freight car. Even with just a few lines he stole the scene. And he DID look insane.

Hoffman is truly excellent & he looks great in the part. I'm also yet to see "Owning Mahoney" which got him rave reviews. For me his best performance is in "Happiness".

(and yes, I'm also eagerly anticipating Good Night, and Good Luck, but I have to wait till February.)

Seriously, I don't understand why he's always a bridesmaid and not the bride in movies. National Treasure, for instance, would have been a better movie with Sean Bean in the lead. :shrug:

with that gritty, weather-beaten appearance. I liked Stanton in Repo Man. I don't know why, but Harry Dean Stanton always reminds me of Lance Henriksen even though they are not facially all that alike.

34. Every single black/asian/hispanic actress...and Adrien Brody.
I have all sorts of nastiness and vitriol for this topic, LOL, but I'll just say that it is a disgusting shame that all roles are not open to actors of all races. They still actually cast for "White Female, 20s" when the part does not require it, for example. And hip hop artists get acting roles that *real* actors wouldn't even be looked at for.

I'll leave it at that, but I get spitting mad when I think about it.

Also...

:loveya:

Adrien Brody is such a good actor--and granted, he's got an Oscar, but I think he's woefully underappreciated. Hopefully King Kong will change that. He's got a natural style that is just so refreshing and exciting... and I'm not saying that because we're going to get married.

And also, Shah Rukh Khan, but whatever.

And I'm a major Sandra Oh fan, too.

45. Jeff Bridges
'The Dude' aside, there's "The Last Picture Show", "Starman", "The Fabulous Baker Boys", "The Fisher King", "Arlington Road", "K-PAX" and the most recent film I've seen "The Door in the Floor". Excellent in all of them and never dull to watch in the tens of films he's been in since the seventies.

(Now I know he's been Oscar nominated so that may make his 'underrated' status slightly controversial, but I'm sticking with it)

Also, Jon Leguizamo - "Summer of Sam" and "Romeo + Juliet" in particular.

47. Ray Liotta
He was the star of "Goodfellas". He stepped into that movie knowing that DeNiro, Pesci, and Scorcese had all previously worked together on another classic, "Raging Bull". That's like taking over for Tom Brady and leading the team to another championship.

He's one of the most consistent actors in all of Hollywood.

92. Santa Sangre got a great UK DVD release last year too
through Anchor Bay (although for some reason Anchor Bay US haven't done likewise). It's got a commentary from Jodorowsky & a critic (which I haven't listened to yet), a (very) short film by his son, a 25-minute talk by Jodorowsky and a feature-length documentary:

"Louis Mouchet's La Constellation Jodorowsky is an 87-minute documentary that includes contributions from Fernando Arrabal, Peter Gabriel, Marcel Marceau and Jean 'Moebius' Giraud as well as Jodorowsky himself. Jodorowsky's entire career up until 1994 is discussed, covering his involvement in theatre, cinema, and comic books as well as touching upon his interest in mysticism, particularly tarot reading and a self-invented technique he terms 'psycho-magic'. Presented in French with burned-in English subtitles, La Constellation Jodorowsky is an interesting and informative look at a man who is as full of character as the art he produces."

He steals every scene he's in, not to mention funny as hell.

Funniest movie with him in it is Four Rooms. That is a classic. Every scene is wonderful.

70. Sean Astin
He wowed me in Return of the King. I thought he shined.
Sean Bean was great too, but not like Sam :-)

85. Sean Astin is a fun actor to watch.
Very likeable. He was great in 50 First Dates as Drew Barrymore's brother.

76. Do you know how long I put off seeing X-Men because he was shafted
out of being Wolverine?? (I don't know if he was actually shafted, LOL, but I always thought of him in the role.)

He's a Republican though. :(

But I like his style.

84. A lot of the ones that came to mind....
Were already done. So i'll go with Harvey Keitel and Steve Buscemi. Both are wonderful actors that can play any role.

93. John Leguizamo
John Lithgow
John Larroquette

That's what I can think of off the top of my head. Maybe I've got a brain aneurysm.

96. Zhang Ziyi , Cecilia Cheung, and Michelle Yeoh
These women are marvelous actresses. I hope they continue to make films overseas but also hope they may one day make some more films in the states.
