Question of the Day

Kate217 aptly suggested that, given yesterday's QotD about who should never make a movie again, today's should be: Who do you think is highly underrated in the film industry and would like to see more of?

Of actors with name recognition, I'd probably go with Catherine Keener, Illeana Douglas, Don Cheadle, and Liam Neeson—who I'm always surprised just isn't in more stuff. (I'm crazy looking forward to Lincoln, though!) I don't think any of them are underrated, in the sense that they're all considered good actors, but they generally don't get offered big leading roles (with the exception of Neeson).

Of actors with less name recognition (based on the fact that when I mention them in conversation, I usually get a blank look), I'd suggest Sophie Okonedo and Elias Koteas—who is just splendid and really deserves to be a leading man in a big film occasionally.
