Terry Crews

One of my personal favourites, every role he gets he aces it completely imo. whether he needs to be funny, scary, gangsta or just plain tanked, he does it.

Michael Clarke Douglas

This man isn't exactly some 'random' actor anymore, he has made a hell of a name for himself. His large physique and dark complexion makes him easy to recognize and with his barry white like voice, everything he says is deep and meaningful (pun intended)

Forest Whitaker

Again, an inderrated and at times under-credited actor who consistantly wows me with his realistic performances of whoever he plays. Panic Room and Last King of Scotland my two personal favourites of his. He is well known now throughout hollywood. (omg what is that he is holding in his hand?)

Laurence Fishburne

Only one name comes to mind when I see this guys face... MORPHEUS. One of the most influentual roles of this decade (imo). His almost expressionless face and powerful voice made him perfect for that role, not to mention his performance in F4-rise of the SS. HE WAS THE SILVER SURFER....'s voice.

John Witherspoon

IMO, one of the funniest african-american actors out there who definately IS undercredited. if he could make up some sort of stand-up routine... i would go. Some of his more popular roles include Friday, Next Friday, The Friday after Next, Soul Plane and Little Man.

Taye Diggs

LOL... Zoolander... Mugatu's personal assistance Todd... nuff sed

Chi McBride

idk much bout this guy, but he looks funny. I say him in Let's go to Prison.

Bokeem Woodbine

Far left

cbf doing anymore, wait for pt 2.

I hate Anthony Anderson, each time I see a movie with him in the cast, I know that I will hate the movie, sorry. For the rest, I respect Forest Witheaker, he's so cool ! And of course, Laurence Fishburn and Michael Clarke, tough I think he could be more wisely used as an actor. Taye Digs is a GREAT actor, I've seen playing Hardened Bastard, smooth advocate and advocate with a Heart. Yeah, he's cool.

When did being half black exempt you from being black? This is the U.S.A.people! Any black makes you black. Why you say? Well it goes back to the days where blacks were legally considered property( not that long ago) and if you were part black you were all property. Because which group of people would except a person that is partially property into there circle. Hence the one drop of black blood rule.

I ain't never met a white person that was half black, but I am related to a menagerie of black people that are half, white, latino philipino etc.

Don't get it twisted now that Tiger is killing golf and ladies love the Rock that all the sudden they ain't black

Duane Johnson is Samoan fo sho. But he's black patnah. We claims all ours patnah. Yiiiiiiiiii!!!

Oh, Cpt.Linger, I don't hate the Transformer movie, but, let's say, it's not one of my favorites. But I'm rather difficult about movie and art in general. To stay in the subject: how about the guy in Lost And Oz, I forgot his name...Aswale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, his name in those are Abedisi and Mr.Eko. He does an quick apparition in Rome and he I think he's another underuserd black comedian cause in 99% of the movie I've seen him, he does always the big bad black badass. In Oz or in Lost, he prove that he could play more sublty character. Wat do you think ?

He's a comedian? since when?

Is this thread about underrated talented black male actors in general? Cause if so this is gonna be a loooong thread.

Anyways, My favorite actor, who happens to be highly underrated by everyone but the critics and is also black, Is Jeffrey Wright.

He is probably most noticeable as Peoples Hernandez from the Shaft remake. He's also Jean Michel basquiat in the movie Basquiat, he's in Manchurian Candidate with Denzel, Casino Royale, Lady in the Water, He played MLK jr in Boycottwith Terrence Howard, and many other films.

He is tied with my other favorite actor Benicio del Toro.

List of Black Actors: Derek Luke, Anthony Mackie, Chitewel Eijifor, Giancarlo Esposit....my hand is crampingand there are tons more to go. So yeah...Black actors underrepresented yet dynamic....hooray.
