That feeling when you see something amazing for the first time

It's quite uncommon that you see a movie or a series and immediately think to yourself that the actor you just saw performing was a great one.

I have had this feeling quite a few times with some actors. Even though I was watching them for the first time on screen, I was immediately drawn towards their charisma even though these actors sometimes had trivial roles.

Sometimes my intuitions were aligned with the world view and even though I was seeing the actor first time on the screen, it turned out that he/she was already a celebrated one.

I am presenting the list of such experiences when I had the feelings. Of course I had no idea if some of them were big shots like Meryl Streep or Jack Nicholson before seeing them perform.


Christoph Waltz -



When I saw the opening sequence of Inglorious Bastards, I immediately told my friend who was sitting next to me that this actor was going to earn Oscar that year.

I saw Inglorious Bastards, multiple times for him. I admire Christoph Waltz and completely enjoyed his performances in his later films such as The Green Hornet, Water for Elephants and Django Unchained. There is no count of how many times I have watched the opening sequence of Inglorius Bastards, but the following one with James Franco in Green Hornet is equally enjoyable -




John Cusack - 2012



Michael Stuhlbarg - as Griffin in MIB3
Later saw him in many flicks such as Doctor Strange and critically acclaimed Shape of Water



Simon Pegg - MI 4 - Ghost Protocol


Patton Oswalt - Walter Mitty


Tyler Perry - Gone Girl


Jack Nicholson - Anger Management


Will Smith - Independence Day


Tessa Thompson - Westworld (TV series)
She was a delight to watch in Thor:Ragnarok


John Malkovich - Transformers



Maryl Streep - Series of Unfortunate events


Steve Carell - Evan Almighty



Jessica Alba - Fantastic Four


Robert Downey Jr - Ironman


Robert De Nero - Meet The Parents


Kal Penn - American Desi


Eva Green - Casino Royale



Renée Zellweger - Me Myself And Irene.



Eva Mendez - Ghostrider



Rob Schneider - 50 First Dates



Giancarlo Esposito - Breaking Bad



Benjamin Bratt - Modern Family



Chloe Moretz  - Kick Ass


Chris Pine - Blind Dating
Well before he became part of the great Hollywood Chris-Off :D



Mark Ruffalo - Just like Heaven



Woody Harrelson - Anger Management


I may have missed some of the names of great actors essentially because actors in the above list totally came across as a surprise.
