Ten Underrated Actors

It's been a long time since I made a list about actors, so I figured I'd do a list of ten underrated actors working today. Actually, maybe "under-known" is a better word. Have you heard of them? You should rent their movies if not. I'd be interested to hear about other underrated actors people feel deserve more acclaim...

Crispin Glover: See him now in Back to the Future, River's Edge, and Willard; see him soon in The Forlorn.

Michael Shannon: See him now in Bug or Shotgun Stories; see him soon in Revolutionary Road.

Laura Dern: See her now in Citizen Ruth and Inland Empire; see her soon in Tenderness.

Catherine Keener: See her now in Full Frontal and Into the Wild; see her soon in Synechdoche, New York.
