Always the Support Never the Lead

I’m not gonna lie, I was thinking about this way before the Oscars airing tonight but I’ll probably get more readers after the Oscars than before them. With that said, I hope everyone enjoyed the Oscars… it was alright. But Seth, you were WAY better than Capt. Kurt said you would be. On to my point, “Always the Support Never the Lead” is my tribute to the unrecognized, forgotten, and always ranked second best in a long list of amazing Actors that seem to never get their props. I will admit I divided them into genres because it’s not really fair any other way. You can click on the hyper links for photos of the actors. ENJOY! And don’t forget to leave comments with your best of the UNDERrated actors out there.
