5. Skip Martin - Pleasantville
Paul Walker received his first real degree of exposure in 1998 when he landed a supporting role in the artistic film Pleasantville. Its a more obscure role that a good amount of movie fans may have forgotten about or never actually noticed, but was undoubtedly a turning point in his acting career. This supporting role came in the form of Skip Martin, a teenager living in the fantastically monochrome 1950s sitcom city of Pleasantville. He is mentally hardwired with the associated lifestyle, and generally oblivious to any sort of sexual material in the real world. That naivety lead to a standout humourous scene which involves Skip getting intimate with a woman not from Pleasantville. This naturally arouses him but he is unaware of what is happening to his body, so he confusedly and amusingly mentions "I must be ill". All of this innocence and naivety meshed well with his naturally charming good looks, successfully getting audiences invested throughout his brief presence. Truth be told, that comedic stroke of brilliance is probably the moment Hollywood saw talent in Paul Walker.
