To them, the world is their stage.

Actors and Actresses all across the globe have a very difficult job: entertaining their viewers. Over the course of the existence of cinema, there have been artists who have made a name for themselves. Some might have been lucky, but most of them have done it through sheer hard work.

Some, on the other hand, have not received the same appreciation as others despite having commendable bodies of work. This post is about some of those underappreciated Hollywood actors who have not become household names but have given us works of immense talent.

Here is my short list of 5 highly underappreciated Hollywood Actors

#1 Jeff Goldblum

This guy has been present in some stellar movies like Jurassic Park and Independence Day. I undeniably love his acting skills and the way he portrays a wide array of characters. I believe that the Jurassic Park movie he was in would be incomplete and not so entertaining if it wasn’t for his meticulous portrayal. But sadly, he has not been appreciated enough.

#2 Djimon Hounsou

If you have seen Blood Diamond, then you know what I am talking about. Djimon Hounsou is clearly one the best actors out there, but he hasn’t been much appreciated for his terrific portrayals and also not bagged many either. The reasons can be many, but the crux remains the same for this Never Back Down actor.

Leonardo might have dwarfed his character in Blood Diamond, but no one can deny that Hounsou was anything but noticeable in that movie. I hope he gets his fair share in the time to come. He was also there in Guardians of the Galaxy if you noticed.

#3 Sean Bean

Everybody knows Ned Stark, don’t they? Sean Bean has been a dominating presence in entertainment memes, depicted as the character who is always killed! That’s sad because he is actually a very talented actor. From Lord of the Rings to Game of Thrones, he has left his mark on each project he has been a part of.

He does negative roles excellently and can portray a very diverse range of characters. His underappreciated status does give me the feeling that sometimes luck does intervene!

#4 Hugo Weaving

If you remember Agent Smith from the Matrix Trilogy and Red Skull from Captain America, you will instantly realise that this guy can seriously act. Did you know that he is also the voice behind Megatron in the Transformers movie franchise? He has also been a part of the Lord of Rings and The Hobbit movie series.

This man can seriously dwarf the influence of any other actor, he shares the stage with. I think, this is one reason for his underappreciated status as many a times; such artists are not given mainstream success as they undermine the influence of glamour and pep.

#5 William Fichtner

I loved this guy in the Prison Break TV series. In many episodes, he single-handedly stole the show, for me at least! He has given some amazing performances over the course of his career, both on television and on cinema yet, he doesn’t have a large fan following. As a professional, he has been impeccable in shows like Invasion and Prison Break.

You can also find his short cameo at the beginning of the Dark Knight Rises.

I am sure that these actors are not looking for a huge fan following or millions of dollars in contracts. But, I strongly believe that talent should be appreciated, if not rewarded. I hope to see a lot more from them in the time to come and hopefully, the world will also realise their immense talents.
