Not really veteran actors, but more contemporary ones who don't appear in much nowadays...

few of mine include:

Samantha Morton - saw her in some weird indie film on Beeb and reminded me what a phenomenal actress she is.

Sean Pertwee - so good in Dog Soldiers. Wonder why his career never went way of rest of his gang? (Law, etc)

Jason Isaacs - know he's still working but would love to see him in more high profile stuff, esp. movies.

Paul Bettany - feel like he's only doing Jarvis now...

Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio - love her work, and seen her couple of times around London (think she lives here with husband). Can't remember last big film saw her in.

just a few to start with...

Those two really should be in movies more, agree there.

Also Ed Harris, I know he is still around but not in really high profile movies anymore shame as he is a great actor.

Jeff Goldblum. Where the hell is he???
Ted Danson. Another who seems not to make movies anymore?
Harvey Keitel. Saw him in the US Life On Mars remake a few years ago and haven't seen him since.

Just looking at the imdb page, it seems he is more into TV than film. But I haven't heard of any of the films he has been in since 2004 which was The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou

Sorely missed.

He was on L&O CI for a couple of years. It was nice getting him regularly.

He'll be appearing as Lestrade in Season 2 of Elementary alongside Jonny Lee Miller who was one of that crew

Aside from that he's in regular work which is more than can be said for a whole lot of actors

He is in high profile movies...just not in substantial roles.

I miss Dean Cain. He hasn't done anything decent since Lois & Clark.

Steve Zahn - last saw him in A Perfect Getaway (2009)

Barry Pepper - has been quite a few films during early 2000s, but he's not around lately

Ben Foster - I think the last time I saw him was in The Mechanic?

Thora Birch - whatever happened to her?

Linus Roache - he seems to have vanished into the thin air after being everywhere during late 1990s and early 2000s.

John Lone - last saw him in a HK TV drama series a couple of years ago.

Delroy Lindo - haven't seen him much lately, but I think I recognised his voice in 'Up'? The rotweiler?

Paul Bettany

Angela Bassett should be on that list too, because she does tiny supporting roles these days. Criminally underrated.

Oh, I see. I don't watch TV much (usually just for cookery shows and a couple of British crime mini series ). Thanks.

I quite liked Arnold Schwarzenegger but he's decided to do politics and that now.

George C Scott who's no longer with us of course. I was also sad when Ernest Borgnine died because he seemed like a really decent human being on top of having a very distinctive presence and style.

For those actors still alive I think we could all benefit from seeing the likes of Brad Dourif, Kurt Russell, William Hurt more if they're still working actors. Tim Curry had a stroke about a year ago so I hope he makes a decent comeback after recovering.

I didn't know that about Tim Curry . Hope he can make a comeback too also. His Darkness in Legend is...legend. And obvious ones like Pennywise and Frank. I also like his Russian officer in Hunt For Red October (iffy accent and all).

Like your other actors too, esp. Russell. Last thing saw Hurt in was History Of Violence (love that film). Still think he and Turner in Body Heat was one of great movie pairings.

Thought of George C. Scott after recent science story about dolphins perhaps not being so smart after all . There was a titan of an actor.

Michael J.Fox

I know he has a new show but I've never seen it and don't intend to.It's good to see him battling on but I miss the healthy Fox with the funny expressions and sharp comic timing,whether in movies or sitcoms.
