With the Oscars airing last night (and Leo finally nabbing his tiny golden man), I started thinking about television and movie actors who have gone through similar tragedy to the one Leo faced in The Revenant and how they still go unrecognized for their sacrifice. Let’s take a moment to honor these heroes in no particular order.
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) – Game of Thrones
Woody Harrelson (Roy Munson) – Kingpin
Tony Hale (Buster Bluth) – Arrested Development
Clark Gregg (Agent Coulson) – Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) – Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back
Michael Ironside (Jean Rasczak) – Starship Troopers
Hayden Christensen (Anakin Skywalker) – Star Wars: Attack of the Clones
John Barrowman (Malcolm Merlyn) – Arrow
Bruce Campbell (Ash Williams) – Ash vs. Evil Dead
You’re welcome. A round of applause to me.
