The Five Best Recent TV Performances Given By Movie Actors


It’s no secret that film actors have been moving to TV for quite a while now. This trend actually started quite a while back as Steve Buscemi headed to Boardwalk Empire and Glenn Close wowed us all in Damages. But obviously the trend has picked up steam in recent years, and I particularly wanted to highlight a few cases in the past year or two specifically. These five actors have found enormous success moving from film to TV lately, and have produced some of the most memorable characters to appear on television in recent memory. See if you’ve caught any of their TV performances, and check out their shows if you haven’t.
