October 5 06

I love movies. I love movies of all kinds. I like dramas. and comedies. and foreign films. and horrors. and docementaries. and indies. love the indies. today i thought i’d do my thursday thirteen on my favorite lesser-known actors. the ones that show up in the low budget, film festival-y type movies and sometimes creep into the mainstream. bottom line? they are awesome.

1. Evan Rachel Wood

she kissed Mischa Barton in the cancelled-too-soon hit Once and Again. and she rebelled in Thirteen.

2. Maggie Gyllenhaal

this woman, sister to the famous Jake, is fantastic in just about everything she does. from Adaptation to Cecil B. Demented to Secretary to Donnie Darko. and she’s a new mom!

3. Peter Sarsgaard

two words: garden state

4. Zooey Deschanel

you’ve seen her in: Elf. you should see her in: Almost Famous and The Good Girl.

5. Kieran Culkin

Igby Goes Down. and The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys. he can do no wrong in my books. the best of the Culkins, in my opinion.

6. Amber Tamblyn

she will always be Emily Quartermaine. and the girl who dies first in the Ring.

7. Sarah Polley

Canadian writer, director, actress. she’s come a long way since her days on The Road to Avonlea and Ramona. personal favorite? The Sweet Hereafter.

8. Ginnifer Goodwin

I first noticed her on Ed, a show i loved, but no one else seemed to watch. She plays the sidekick role to a T, but she’s really showing her inner shine as the third wife of Bill (“are you ready to go back to Titanic?”) Paxton on the show Big Love.

9. Emile Hirsch

first noticed him in The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys. He sealed his fate – as one of the best - when he played Jay in Lords of Dogtown. a pretty bad movie, but a pretty great role.

10. Jena Malone

This girl shows up everywhere. Donnie Darko. United States of Leland. Saved. Life as a House.

11. Michael Pitt

ah, it’s Jen Lindley’s little sophomore puppy dog boyfriend on Dawson’s Creek. but seriously, he’s proven to be so much more than just a pretty face with pouty lips. he held his own opposite the (hot!) talented Ryan Gosling in Murder by Numbers.

12. Amanda Seyfried

not just the dumb blonde from Mean Girls. Veronica Mars. Big Love.

13. Clea DuVall

she’s edgy. and tough. and offbeat. and somewhat disturbing in her roles. Girl Interrupted. 21 Grams. The Faculty.

  3. I think I’ve heard about a few of these. I’ll have to check them out.

    I do know about Amber Tamblyn through Joan of Arcadia. Loved that show! Was so sad it got canceled.

    Thanks for stopping by my TT!

  4. Love Clea Duvall and Sarah Polley. Clea is just brilliant in Girl Interrupted and I love Sarah’s performance in My Life Without Me.

  6. I think I actually knew who some of them were. Does that mean I watch Tv to much?

    Have a great Thursday!

  7. I LOVE Ginnifer Goodwin. She’s from Memphis, too, so we’re like, you know, bff. And I watched Ed, too! Loved that show.

    I also really like Amanda Seyfried, and Michael Pitt really creeps me out. Clea DuVall (related to Robert?) is on the new show “Heroes.”

  8. I love the vast majority of those actors, as well. And the others … I just don’t know about them yet, but I will definitely be adding some movies to my rental list to find out more!

  9. I like indie movies, too, but never remember actors’ names. But Indie and Sundance Channels have provided me with some great flicks to watch, anyway. Cool list! ;)

    I’ve posted my Thursday Thirteen, too. Enjoy!

  13. #3 – Two words… So dreamy.

    [sigh]

    Seriously, though, he is an awesome actor; very expressive with the eyes.

    #6 – I liked her in “Joan of Arcadia”.

    #7 – Yup, she’s definitely one of those “lesser-known”, yet exceptionally talented actors. Not really one of my favs, but I agree that she’s awesome in her craft.

    #10 – Jena Malone… LOVE her! She’s awesome! …Always so believable, as though she IS the characters she portrays.

    #13 – Yup, I totally agree. Hey, isn’t she on the new TV series, “Heroes”?

    Well, that was a fun list for me. I truly love movies, too.

    Have a terrific Thursday!

  14. What a cool TT list! I think Zooey Deschanel is beautiful and I’m a huge Sarah Polley fan — I loved her in Go. I love that movie though, so maybe I’m biased. ;)

    Comment by mamatulip on October 5, 2006
  15. I’ve always loved Sarah Polley in the Avonlea series. Then one day I was watching The Adventures of Baron Munchausen and realized that the little girl is played by Sarah! I believe it was one of her first major roles. I love all of the people on your list. I loved Zooey in the Hitchhiker’s Guide, too! Thanks for visiting my TT

  16. #2 and #4 I recognize, #10 looks familiar, the rest? No clue. But you know what? It’s refreshing to see new faces – the same old stars get boring after a while (and quite honestly? Many aren’t even that talented).

    Thanks for stopping by!

  31. Great list. I knew 80% of these, but not all. The Sweet Hereafter was a great movie, but much, much too sad. I don’t mind sad, but boy, that one was a doozy. Loved Even Rachael Wood in Once and Again, and I think she’s got some real talent. Loved Amber Tamblyn in Joan of Arcadia, too. Secretary? Very interesting movie. Great stuff.

  101. Watch subject. Bush goes ballistic about other countries being evil and dangerous, because they have weapons of mass destruction. But, he insists on building up even a more deadly supply of nuclear arms right here in the US. What do you think? Why has bush turned our country from a country of hope and prosperity to a country of belligerence and fear.
    Our country is in debt until forever, we don’t have jobs, and we live in fear. We have invaded a country and been responsible for thousands of deaths.
    We have lost friends and influenced no one. No wonder most of the world thinks we suck. Thanks to what george bush has done to our country during the past three years, we do!
