Hollywood is not just holly-weird, full of actors who make millions (those that actually do) and many many actors who have no real acting skills but still make it on the screen because they have been typecast by a casting genius at some point in their life. Besides this glam category there are many actors who take on theatre lead roles and put up stunning performances. We will mention some names and share the insight about people who you will see both on the silver screen as well as on the stage. The actors who are able to deliver stellar performances in front of a live audience can always do much better in front of cameras, and this is why we want to throw some names who count for great actors.
