Sam Rockwell is one of the most wonderfully underrated actors in Hollywood, whose presence can make anything bearable to watch. Even something as trite as the Poltergeist remake that no one asked for. He can play the meanie, as in The Green Mile, with at must ease as he can play a likeable sod in The Way, Way Back. Which is why we cheered when Sam Rockwell won the much deserved Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his terrific performance in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.
