The most underrated actresses and actors in Hollywood

Certainly not for the lack of award nominations,hard work and great roles, but these people seem always to find themselves under the thin line that separates the true Hollywood royalty and all the rest.They are all brilliant actors,some of them deserving those coveted roles far more than the actors who get them,some of them cheated of their Oscars.My very personal list of the underrated,in random order.

1.Laura Linney,excellent actress with a great career

2.Toni Collette,one of the best but had to turn to tv for motivating roles

3.Viggo Mortensen,great actor,good choices,not enough appreciation for his gift

4.Chloe Sevigny,smart eccentric girl,without a decent acknowledgement of her extraordinary talent,turned to tv

5.Tim Robbins,where are great roles for this fine actor?

6.Kevin Kline,one of the best,what is he doing with his choices?

7.Ed Harris,exceptional actor,could do so much more

8.Don Cheadle,fantastic actor,enlightens every role he plays,at a loss of proper challenges

9.Kirsten Dunst,another smart girl with eclectic career choices and lack of real praise

10.Garet Hedlund,very interesting young actor,not just another handsome guy, deserving far more attention

The most overrated actors and actresses in Hollywood

1.Tom Cruise, for all the obvious reasons

2. Jennifer Aniston,once and for all,she was excellent in "Friends",decent in "Breakup" and that's it! Nothing more!

3. George Clooney, far more interesting as director and producer than actor

4. Salma Hayek,also far more interesting as producer,activist or anything else than actress

5. Robert Pattinson,very nice guy but he really really is an average actor

6. Kristen Stewart,of course, but for a different reason than Pattinson,the girl has some raw talent but her public and private persona got the best of her and her talent drowned in her irritating self

7. Jessica Biel,again,for all the obvious reasons

8. Orlando Bloom,also a great guy,great career but simply not talented enough to justify the really good roles he gets

9. Diane Kruger,I sincerely don't understand what got her so far

10. Kerry Washington,she simply lacks talent and depth and she tries to make it up with perseverance

Michael B.Jordan:I knew Vince Howard was going places

Oh yes,I am so happy when I read critics raving about actors I discovered in their beginnings.

Cannes press is glorifying Michael B.Jordan,or, for me,Vince Howard from FNL.The moment I saw that wild kid in Dillon with coach Taylor I knew he will be a star someday. And how right I was.

One of the best tv dramas ever on tv, FNL had brilliant cast all through 5 seasons and Michael was in top 3 actors there.He has a lot going on for him,his looks,his wild energy and his divine talent.He is young,full of hope and yearnings,curious and eager to explore all the world of possibilities good acting can offer.

Jordan never halts,he is ferocious and brave and above all he has a big heart.The story between him and his mother was incredible and his friendship with coach Taylor unforgettable.The camera adores him and  when his body explodes with uncontrollable energy, it looks amazing.

He stands out among his peers for his talent but more than that,he has charisma that only few true stars have.I was delighted when I read about his success in Sundance and can't wait to see "Fruitvale Station".Hopefully he will continue to choose movies with substance.

And he is still great but his career choices are eclectic,to say the least.Why does it happen so often that brilliant young actors who shine in important indie movies tend to disappoint following with idiotic choices?

I hope Jordan will come to his senses and understand how rare pure talent is and how much respect and nurture it deserves.I hope we won´t lose another great talent because of awful career moves.

So congratulations for all his successes and an insistent whisper,"Clear Eyes,Full Hearts Can't Loose"!
Get back to choosing Your roles with wisdom and passion.
