10 TV Actors We Want To See In More Movies, 8.20.10
Bob Trate

They grace our TV screens on a weekly basis but their awesomeness is too amazing to be contained on such a small venue. Today we take a look at a few very talented actors that are full of win and must show up in more films.

7. Vincent D’Onofrio
Vincent D’Onofrio is acting truth who after working in many films, including genre fare like Men in Black, Strange Days and The Cell, decided to take his talents to television where he currently stars as Detective Robert Goren in Law & Order: Criminal Intent. It’s a nice gig that has kept him busy for the last eight to nine years but he really needs to schedule more movies in between his off season. The guy is too good of an actor to be stuck playing the same role for so long, it’s time for him to cut loose in more films.

Its the afterglow!
VDO's acting of Goren made such an impression they still see him when he isnt there!Now thats real longevity...without any effort.

How strange, considering all that's gone on. But the point is: Vincent needs to make some great movies that will be accessible to the general public, not just to film festival folks or indie followers. He's America's greatest actor and even we devotees don't get to see his great talent easily. Tempis fugit, Vincent darling, we want you on the big screen!

I agree with the author of the article only if that means Vincent can have good movie roles, roles that are really up to his talent. Otherwise, I think good tv is better than bad cinema.

I think he never had problems to play in a lot of movies, but to get these movies is a little more complicated.

I don't care if it's movies or TV, just bring him on; and often.

Its about commitment and where you put your energies.At the moment he seems to be supporting friends in experimental work.If the right opportunity came along at the right time he might commit those energies to a large scale universal production.But that hasnt happened yet...
