Often cast in ensemble projects, he usually stands out above the pack. This couldn't be more evident than in the Tom Hanks ensemble classic, Saving Private Ryan, where Jeremy Davies not only steals focus from Hanks, but from a slew of other Not Very Famous...but should be actors as well.
He did the same for television with stand out performances in Lost and Justified. And even though his ensemble work is admirable, he's even better with leading roles like Ray Aibelli, the boy who carries on an incestuous relationship with his mother in Spanking the Monkey, and as Charles Manson in the made-for-television remake of Helter Skelter.
How much longer can Jeremy Davies fly under the radar? Probably forever, for if mainstream Hollywood hasn't knocked down his door by now, it's a good chance he'll continue to do award worthy work while staying Not Very Famous, which most likely suits him just fine.
