Top five most underrated actors.

The top five most underrated actors, in my opinion. As per usual, in no particular order.

1. Joseph Gordon Levitt.

I don't know where to start with JGL! Such a talented man, both actor, director of his own movie and singer and is extremely under appreciated for all. His roles in 500 Days of Summer, 50/50 and Sin City 2, were all fantastic, and not to forget the Dark Knight either. It's hard to deny he's talented, and lacks a typecast, yet nobody ever seems to praise him, and that's proven by his very few awards and recognition for his work. Winning a Teens Choice Award doesn't compare to an Oscar, but maybe he'll get there one day.

2. Margot Robbie.

I finally feel like she's starting to get the recognition she deserves, since the launch of the Suicide Squad marketing for the new movie, however up until that she was pretty much unheard of, despite big roles in The Wolf Of Wall Street and Focus alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Will Smith. It does look like she's finally got her big break though, especially with the rumours of getting her own Harley Quinn movie after Suicide Squad is released, and that's before the movie is even out in cinemas, so the future is looking promising for Margot!

3. Ellen Page.

Ellen Page has to be one of the best actress' around, and there's no arguing that she's an inspiration, on and off the screen, especially after her 'coming out' speech at what I think was a Human Rights campaign, and it was fantastic. As well as her confidence off screen, her acting roles from such a young age were so strong and well played, some of my favourites being Hard Candy, Super and Juno.

4. Mark Wahlberg.

I might be told I'm wrong on this one, but I personally think that despite how many years he's been acting and how many roles he's played, he's extremely underrated. Maybe his roles in films like Ted made him less appealing, but I think it just furthered his talent as he refused to have a typecast, and I loved him in films like Pain and Gain, and The Lovely Bones. 

5. Miles Teller.

I have what some might call an obsession with Miles Teller, so maybe that's why he's ended up on this list, but despite that I really don't think he couldn't be any more underrated for how talented he is. Just looking at his performance in Whiplash, he strayed from his typical comedy and blew audiences away with how incredible and intense his performance was in this movie. Ignoring the flop that was the new Fantastic Four movie, he's becoming a more up and coming star, and I can't wait for him to take on more roles like Whiplash, or even 21 and Over.

Honourable mentions.

  • Michael B Jordan.
  • Chris Pratt.
  • Jake Gyllenhaal.
