    Abbie Cornish, australian girl. Was in this film 'Somersault'

    and also 'Candy' with Heath Ledger.

    The above film is brilliant, even that scene is good!!

    It's hard to say who is unsung. I tend to think that Ronald Reagan is unsung as an actor because he was actually pretty damn good. Peter Lorre is one of the greatest actors we've ever had yet he never won a major award and had a career that varied wildly between greatest films ever and barely passable. Anyone here who knows me is very aware that I think Agnes Moorehead was one of the finest actresses ever. Her award nominations reflect her astonishing talent yet she's remembered most for a very narrow role in a popular sitcom. In that sense, I'd have to say these actors were underrated more than unsung.

    Brian Cox and Michael Lonsdale come to mind but if I had to pick a favorite, it would be John Fiedler. Like Gene Hackman, "he's good in everything." Unlike Gene Hackman, Fiedler's been in everything (175 films and TV shows ranging from Winnie the Pooh to Bewitched to Star Trek), done radio, and had an instantly-recognizable voice and face.

    Michael Ironside. He has a nice ass for an older gent. Nice masculine voice too. I have Starship Troopers on DVD. It was the first DVD I bought when I got a DVD player back in the day. This was the scene I had on repeat.

    Thank you, however I'm not sure you would still say that if you read my first Broadway review in the NY Times ( They did not like me...they really did not like me!)
