Who deserves more fame?
While I'm not sure I'd wish big time, privacy-destroying fame on any of my favorite performers, there are definitely some TV actors out there who are severely underrated.
Who was included on the EW list? Christopher Gorham, Ugly Betty; Allison Mack, Smallville; Sara Rue, Less Than Perfect; Nathan Fillion, Firefly; Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki, Supernatural; Wendell Pierce, The Wire; David Hyde Pierce, Fraiser; Matthew Settle and Damian Lewis, Band of Brothers; the cast of Everwood; Clea DuVall and Nick Stahl, Carnivale; Mary Lynn Rajskub and Roger Cross, 24 and Tahmoh Penikett, Battlestar Galactica.
I'm not sure David Hyde Pierce is underrated seeing as he won four Emmy Awards and was nominated every year that Frasier was on the air, but I can certainly get behind most of the others on the list especially Nathan Fillion. Why that guy hasn't taken the Harrison Ford mantle by now is beyond me.
I'd probably add the entire supporting cast of Weeds to that list, along with Arrested Development's Michael Cera, Freakshow's H. Jon Benjamin and The Office's Mindy Kaling.
Any votes out there on who you'd like to see taking up more room on the cover of mags like Entertainment Weekly?
