More of the underrated

These actors and actresses have more range than many people seem to give them credit for having:

  • Kathryn Erbe
  • Katheryn Winnick
  • Jack Black
  • Ana de la Reguera
  • Mary McDonnell
    (Truth to tell, however, when you successfully play characters in both Dances With Wolves and Battlestar Galactica, people know you've got game)
Among poets, on the evidence of When Earth's Last Picture is Painted, I think Rudyard Kipling is underrated.

Among brewers, don't sleep on the Benedictine monks of Birra Nursia.

Underrated musicians (lauded but not as well-known as they should be, given their talent):
  • David Mason, the trumpeter on the Beatles' song, "Penny Lane"
  • Laith Al-Saadi, dark horse Voice contestant and Michigan music legend
  • Evelyn Glennie, deaf but extremely accomplished percussionist
