YARDBARKER: Acting may seem like a glamorous profession, but at the end of the day, it is as much a job as scrubbing toilets. Okay, so most toilet scrubbers don’t have a honey wagon and lack the luxury of craft services, but actors still have to show up at set at ungodly hours, learn their lines and deliver to the best of their ability lest they get replaced with Ted McGinley. The below thespians slugged it out in a tough year and helped us forget our troubles for a couple of hours. We are forever in their debt.
Aldis Hodge was stunning in last year’s criminally overlooked “Clemency”, but he couldn’t be denied in 2020 as NFL great Jim Brown in Regina King’s “One Night in Miami”. He was also excellent as a principled detective in James Wan’s “The Invisible Man”, and did something or other in Disney+’ “Magic Camp”. Now that Hodge is on Hollywood’s radar, we expect to see him landing roles commensurate with his tremendous talent.
