Most awesome low profile actors

Here's a small list containing my favorite actors in the media: they're discreete, they're low-profiled, and most important they're not EVERYWHERE (f.e. mr. clooney, mr. pitt and mr. dicaprio) therefore i can't never get tired of seeing them on screen: they're fresh, they're natural. They're are not movie stars: they're REAL ACTORS

“ if you want someone to portray a despicable killer, a maniac, a cruel character, he's your man. Mr. Oldman has given so much joy playing a punk star, an homosexual writer, a corrupt DEA officer, a russian terrorist....and well, so many others, always in a very effortless way, very natural and specially filled with passion. ” - alexei_92
