10 Actors We Wish Were More Talented Than They Are

Why do we like certain actors? Oh so many reasons. There are those who can give a charming interview, those who share our nerdy or hipstery pursuits, those who can write a wicked tweet or those so scintillatingly sexy they send us scurrying to our bunks. And, I'd like to think, talent plays a part somewhere. That the reason our Pajiba 10 differs from, say, People's 50 Most Beautiful or Maxim's Hot 100 is that we like our celebrities comely and accomplished. But sometimes even the most discerning among us are caught off guard by an untalented actor. Our affection for them grows until it's too late, we're fans and almost (almost) blind to the limits of their range. Usually this happens when a performer lucks into a TV or film franchise role that fits them like a glove.

10 Mr. Rogers Quotes You Need to Read

If you haven't seen it, Fred Rogers' acceptance speech for a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 1997 Emmys is a fascinating watch. After being introduced as "the best neighbor any of us has ever had," by Tim Robbins, Mr. Rogers takes the stage amidst uproarious applause. A humble, gray Presbyterian minister being heralded as a hero on television's flashiest night—he sticks out, not just by virtue of his age, but also a sort of sheepish grace. This man does not have a false bone in his body. What happens next is probably singular among award shows. Mr. Rogers steps up to the microphone, and issues an order. "Would you just take, along with me, 10 seconds to think of the people who have helped you become who you are? Those who have cared about you and wanted what was best for you in life. I'll watch the time."
