“ Whos him? Call me what you will he's awesome, yes he hasn't been in many good films (just tv things) but the reason he sits on this list is because how how diverse his voice and acting skills are, tends to play tough guys, and in nearly all the thing I've seen him in he has a different accent in each. First thing I see him in? One of his episodes of the bill (don't ask why I used to watch the bill) first thing I loved him in? Shameless. Why he deserves a place in the awesome ness room?
