Actors/Actresses/Directors/Whatever you changed your mind about...
As it says in the title - something that's been discussed recently in the Last Film You Watched Thread is how Ben Affleck's managed to surprise people and turn out to be a pretty damn good director, and I also had a brief conversation with CN about how Colin Firth and Nicholas Hoult have both suddenly started putting in decent performances after years of not being particularly impressive.
So I thought I'd start a thread about it. Is there anybody in film or TV who you didn't think much of at first, then they did something to change your mind?
I can think of:
Jeff Daniels - Thought he was crap, then The Newsroom came out ,and holy fuck...
Mark Wahlberg - The Departed had a whole bunch of great performances in it, but his was easily the best.
Martin Freeman - Couldn't stand him in The Office or Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy, but he's fantastic in Sherlock.
