It’s not an easy thing for an actor to fully realize his true potential. Oftentimes it’s the directors who make them realize their worth and potential. But what an actor needs is good instincts at picking scripts that would enable him to exercise his skills to the fullest. A highly skilled actor could go unnoticed if he is not at the right place. There are many actors who are yet to full realize their actual potential. Perhaps it’s the directors who never really utilized them or it’s got to do with their lack of vision. Let’s take a look at 15 actors yet to realize their true potential.
15. Jesse Plemons
Best known for playing the deadpan teenage psychopath, Todd Alquist, in Vince Gilligan’s iconic crime drama television series ‘Breaking Bad’, Jesse Plemons is indeed a highly promising actor who is waiting for an explosive film role that would lift him off of obscurity. He was fantastic as Ed Blumquist in the black comedy crime drama series ‘Fargo’. He had a relatively minor role in ‘Paul Thomas Anderson’s ‘The Master’ but Hollywood is yet to utilize his real potential. His consistently good work in Television should soon lead him to something very special in films as it would be a shame if someone as talented as him would go underutilized in an industry that has consistently produced the finest of filmmakers.
