Underrated – Ben Mendelsohn
Australia’s Mendelsohn has one of the most diverse resumes on this list. He started his career in music videos before he notched starring roles in franchises like Star Wars. However, it’s fair to say that he doesn’t get the recognition that his talent deserves. Yes, he has an Emmy but many fans still don’t know who he is.
One Mendelsohn supporter wrote: “The guy can convincingly play everything from the bumbling junkie strung out on heroin to the powerful Wallstreet tycoon.” It’s incredible how much success he has achieved without getting the fan respect. Mendelsohn is a brilliant, underrated star.
