Jeffrey Wright is a human chameleon. He’s one of those actors that’s been in roughly a billion roles, and yet one would be hard-pressed to really recognize him in any of them. He takes the term "thespian" to an extreme level, walking into a new skin with each script. Name 10 other American actors that can do that, we dare you.

Wright also has a habit of stealing the show, no matter how much screen time he gets. Remember when he was in “Boardwalk Empire”? Or “Only Lovers Left Alive”? Don’t even get us started about how he’s the only reason to keep watching “Westworld.” So thank you, Mr. Wright, for making the films and series we watch far more interesting. 

#LoveMahershalaAli

Feeling anxious? Watch Mahershala Ali do anything for about five seconds—those jitters will wash right away with the sound of his voice. Ali has that thing that some people have, you know? That thing that commands the room, whether said room is on your TV screen or not. It’s a natural charisma that knows how to stop people in their tracks.

It goes without saying that Ali has the acting chops, too. Beyond the acting chops, in fact. That’s what got him that Oscar for “Moonlight,” or why he was one of the only actors that really stood out in “House of Cards.” He was the best part of "Luke Cage." Now he’s going to step into the role of Blade? Yes, please.
