For talented actors, playing one type of role successfully is never enough. While there are countless actors out there who have been fortunate enough to get the roles in blockbusters, a class of movie stars who achieve a certain level of notoriety allow them to truly take on and unequivocally nail any movie role that comes their way.
Most of the movies have become box-office hits, grossing billions of dollars and their performances received international recognition and a lot of praise from critics and movie buffs. The talented actors have the guts to break away from their ordinary image to immerse themselves in their roles.
