what about michael shannon
Posted: 6 years, 6 months ago at Mar 18 16:24
Yeah, I thought about him but isn't as underrated as any of these 25.

I don't think Viggo is underrated but a great list...

I watch James Franco, when I'm having trouble sleeping. His "acting" helps me with that.
Posted: 4 years, 9 months ago at Dec 16 17:02
Vincent D'Onofrio is terribly underrated. He is superb in Law & Order: Criminal Intent.
Posted: 4 years, 6 months ago at Mar 14 20:30
A couple of these people are in no way underrated - James Franco and Ryan Gosling definitely don't need to be on here, but I agree with the rest.
