Sam Rockwell is an actor that the fans love, he has been in some of the most popular films of all time but somehow doesn’t get the praise in the award ceremonies. I have to admit I haven’t seen a lot of his film so I will pick a top 5 from what I have seen.
Frank is the partner to Roy who work as con men, he talks Roy into one more job before he retires, Nicolas Cage gets a lot of praise for his work in this film but Rockwell is right up there with him.
In this space comedy Rockwell plays one of the members of a cult television show that an alien race love to watch. Showing off comedy levels this time.
In what is only a small role but a crucial one we learn who was responsible for the crime John Coffey is meant to have commited.
This might be the strangest addition to the list but I just love the character in the remake of the cult favourite British television show and Sam nails every single scene with his arrogant style and charisma.
How could this not be number one really, many people believe this was an Oscar worthy performance of a man on a solo space mission when something strange happens. Sam pretty much does his whole film solo which many actors would struggle with.
