10 Movie Actors With Far More Range Than You Think

These actors are more than just versatile, they could be anyone.

Warner Bros.

Some actors find themselves forever playing the same character in every film they ever appear in, the names might change but it's perform, rinse, repeat over and over again. Some could be excused for being limited by the material of their time: John Candy, for example, always played John Candy because Hollywood demanded that he never stop and the same can be said of Arnold Schwarzenegger... he will genuinely be back again and again.

However, there are a number of actors who can seamlessly transition from role to role and genre to genre - more so now than ever before. Some may shy away from the notion of changing themselves for each new potential casting and rely on their previous successes or becoming a directors favourite/muse to ensure the work keeps coming in but they are walking a tightrope, always at risk of a box office bomb all but ending their careers.

Obviously, the best known 'range' actors won't be appearing on this list so fans of Tom Hardy, Leonardo di Caprio, Daniel Day Lewis and Meryl Streep can rest easy knowing that the world fully appreciates the phenomenal talents of these actors and their like.

Equally, the George Clooney's of this world will also be omitted... because they really have no range whatsoever.
