What the public has failed to realize, though, is that Brad Dourif has been doing Oscar caliber work his entire career. Many of these wonderful performances are in films most people have never heard of. Check out the movie Wise Blood to start with, then go through his list of credits and seek out his work. You'll be in for a quite a surprise.
He still pops up now and then in the occasional Hollywood A-list film, but is more likely to be seen in the recent low-budget horror movie or as a guest star on some television program. Whatever screen he's on, you can count that his performance will take that movie or TV show to a higher level.
His on-screen intensity and dedication to the role he's playing, no matter what the budget of the film, makes him in my eyes a true actor and today's pick for Not Very Famous...but should be.
