I love this guy, i really think that he's a future star and deserve a leading role.
The first time i saw him was as Papa Doc in 8 Mile.

And he delivered a fantastic performance as Sergeant JT Sanborn in The Hurt Locker.

He was also hilarious as Adrian Doorbal in Pain and Gain.

It's really hard to deny Paul Dano's talent, although i didn't really like There will be blood but his performance was awesome, he's very interesting and i really hope that he gets more recognition.

There will be blood

He did a small role in 12 years a slave.

But my favorite role was at Little miss sunshine.

And in Prisoners, he was fantastic.

Ben Foster is shockingly underrated, while most of us know him from supporting roles with very few screen time, but it's hard not to recognize his talent, in fact he puts so much darkness and pain into the characters he plays, it's max entertainment.

His best performance as a twisted killer in Hostage

Another Great Performance in Contraband

3:10 to Yuma

The Mechanic

X-Men: The Last Stand

Seriosuly, just take a look at his face! he's oozing talent

Oh, this guy, i just love him, i know he haven't done an important role but he's just hilarious, he lost too much weight recently and he looks very different now but i hope to see him more.

I saw him first in Blow and he was really good.

My favorite performance was in American History X.

He also appeared in The wolf of wall street.

Here's Ethan Suplee in 2002 and in 2012 (he lost 200lb).

OsamaExKing's rating:
Aside from the fact that shes beautiful, shes also very talented.

1st time i saw her in a cheesy 90's flick (Light it Up) with usher but she was really good.

And then 25th Hour (that movie was terrible) she was ok.

And i loved her in Clerks 2

And then in Eagle Eye (i loved that movie)

She also did a full frontal in Trance (2013)

(No i haven't seen it, i'm waiting for the right time ;-)

If you go to her IMDb page, you'll see 27 titles, in which only 15 are actual movies, which is kinda sad because shes really talented, she deserve far more and better roles than this.

My favorite roles are:

The Prestige

The town

And Everything must go (although that wasn't an interesting movie but i watched it because of her).

There isn't any doubt that he's talented and he get's too much movie roles but not a very obvious role, very few screen time but he killed it everytime.

My Favorite roles are:

The green mile


Twelve Monkeys

The Hurt Locker

16 Blocks

He deserve a leading role.
OsamaExKing's rating:
You certainly won't believe that he have 143 titles under his belt and yet, people don't know him or don't give him much attention, i'm not saying that he should be nominated for an academy award but some recognition would be nice.

Most Memorable roles:

Die Hard 2

The shawshank redemption

The Green Mile

OsamaExKing's rating:
Too many TV-Mini-Series or TV-Series and a few actual movies and he's a great actor, i remember him from Alias The TV-Series.


Most Memorable Roles:



As Master Thundering Rhino in Kung Fu Panda 2

OsamaExKing's rating:
We know her from lost TV-Series but is that it?
seriously if you go to her IMDb page you'll see 6 movies only, but she's really a good actress, i remember her from Real Steel and a short scene at the end of The hurt Locker.


Real Steel

The hurt locker

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

Average listal rating (772 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 0
She's cute and talented, I've seen her in The town and Green Lantern, you guys probably know her from Gossip girl but i never watched that show.

Gossip Girl

The Town

Green lantern

OsamaExKing's rating:
Average listal rating (135 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 0
I remember him from Zodiac, Shutter Island and shooter, he always plays as a villain and he's really good.


Shutter Island


Some people thinks that he look like Christopher Meloni? but i don't know for sure, both are great actors.

OsamaExKing's rating:

Most of those actors take only supporting roles and deliver a fantastic performance every-time, that's why i feel that they need more recognition, more movies and a leading role.
