I tend to be drawn to actors that aren't really in the spotlight so much, and ones that play interesting characters, a good example would be actor John Hurt (the elephant man, alien), i also enjoy the works of such actors as Willem Dafoe (Nosferatu), Alfred Molina (Spiderman 2' "Doc Oct") Brad Dourif (Grima Wormtongue) and Bruce Campbell (so called a B-list celeb starring in the Evil Dead Trilogy). These types appeal to me so much more and i am more drawn to watching them than the more popular ones.

Who are your favorite actors that are unique (Character actors)? As opposed to the widely publicized ones like Tom Cruise, Will Smith, Owen Wilson type class..

Steve Buscemi comes to mind.

An aside: I'm going to see Bruce Cambell at a book signing on Wednesday. :)

Johnny Depp. I know he's well-publicised, but I like him because he tends to play quirky characters and doesn't go for run-of-the-mill roles.

William H. Macy. In fact he would the perfect choice to play someone with SA.

LilyFair, i like him in that movie too, as you probably could take note, the other actor Brad Dourif was in it, but didn't play a likeable character, i loathed him in it. Willem Dafoe also did a really great job as the creepy vampire in the remake of Nosferatu. I did have a freaky crush on his vampire part..

I agree with Steve Buscemi, Bruce Campbell, and Crispin Glover. I'm too sleepy to think of anyone else right now.
