When I think of underrated actors, I think of those who have appeared in lots of films whilst seemlessly blending into the background in each one: the actors who you go 'oh, I recognise him/her... but where from?' Off the top of my head, three come to mind: John Hawkes, Vera Farmiga and Tony Leung. The first two have been plugging away for years giving their all in small-ish roles; both have achieved a modicum of critical acclaim, but they both deserve so much more. Leung is justly lauded in his native China, but the Western world hasn't embraced him as much as he deserves as of yet. Hopefully that'll change in the future, though...
