Underrated Performers

Courtney Hazlett lists these as her Eight underrated performers in ’08:
  1. Fred Armisen (Saturday Night Live) - Certainly one of my favorite SNL actors.. pictured right spoofing Barack Obama.. I might have put him atop my list if I was hip enough to have one.
  2. Rosemarie DeWitt (Rachel Getting Married) - who?
  3. Craig Ferguson (The Craig Ferguson Show) - I liked Craig on the Drew Carey sitcom but don't stay up late enough to watch his show.
  4. Sherri Shepherd (The View) - Pulease.. the view itself is overrated in my opinion!
  5. The kids of “Slumdog Millionaire” - huh?
  6. Summer Heights High - I'm thinking that I am not hip enough for this list.
  7. Blair Underwood (In Treatment) - wasn't he on LA Law?
  8. Amy Ryan (The Office) - Finally someone I can relate to.. yes I liked her as Toby's temporary HR replacement.. I wonder if we will see her 2009?
I might add a few other names to the list.. I liked the way Lena Headey played Sarah Conner on the returning Terminator series.. also thought that Haeth Ledger's Joker overshadowed a good performance by Christain Bale's Batman.  Who would you add to the list?


  1. Sorry this is not my expertise.... I will go with your list. Some I had seen, some not. I guess I live a pretty shelterd life...

    I need to get out more ((smile))


  2. I am so out of the loop that I can't choose either.
    I guess I don't watch enough Prime Time TV. Never heard of a lot of these.
    I will have to go with your choices. (:0)

  3. A little quirky ... but I have to go with Steve Howey. He was just to way into his role as Vance Montgomery on the Reba show. He was pretty much the only reason I would sit with my wife to watch the show.
