You know how some actors and actresses are typecast as villains, or good guys, or henchmen? Well, the artists you’re about to see don’t have that problem, as they can play pretty much any role they’ve been given. Some, like Cate Blanchett and James McAvoy, have even nailed playing the opposite gender!
Without a doubt, these are the 7 most versatile actors and actresses Hollywood has to offer.
1. Cate Blanchett
This Australian actress has starred in a number of outstanding movies and is best known for her multidimensional characters. She is the ultimate chameleon! You may’ve seen her in hits like “The Lord of the Rings”, “Thor: Ragnarok”, “The Aviator”, “Indiana Jones”, “I’m Not There” (where she played Bob Dylan) and a lot more, including voice acting.
2. James McAvoy
All you need to do is watch “Split” to understand how talented James is. Playing a person with multiple personalities disorder takes a certain mindset that not every actor possesses. Have you seen him in “The Last King of Scotland”? He’s a gosh darn genius! Other smash hits of his are “X-Men: First Class”, “The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe”, “Glass”, “Atomic Blonde” and about a hundred more.
3. Tom Hanks
For over decades Tom Hanks has acquired a legendary status among the Hollywood actors, which allowed him to pick and choose any role he wanted. No two of his performances were alike! Here are some his most memorable movies: “Big”, “Forrest Gump”, “Castaway”, “Green Mile”, “Saving Private Ryan”, and many more.
