Who are your favorite actors that rarely or never get first billed on the credits?

Wilkins LOVES Michael Shannon. I want to throw Walton Goggins into the running.

Basically anyone in any war movie.

Eric Bana
Ewan McGregor
Glenn Morshower
Tom Sizemore

I think those would all count as "not super famous main roles"?

I would say McGregor is leading man for sure and Bana could go either way.

I know it is a joke on Bojack Horseman, but Margo Martindale is a great in The Americans and Justified.

Jon Bernthal is making a name for himself as a supporting character.
Sicario, Baby Drier, The Accountant, Fury, Wind River, and of course The Walking Dead and Dare Devil. Will be interesting to see him lead a show like The Punisher.

Berthal was great in Wind River and his role was less than 5 minutes.

Margo is another solid pick and reminds me of Ann Dowd (Patti from The Leftovers). She was also the manager in the movie Compliance and I see she has a role in Handmaid's Tale.
