Day 19: Your Favorite Actor

When it comes to noir, my favorite actors and actresses tend to be those who play villains, or at least ambiguous protagonists. I adore every turn Richard Widmark took in his early noir films, for example. But I hate having to pick just one — of anything! With that in mind, I’m selecting an actor whose work I’ve seen more and more of lately, and I think he’s fantastic and quite underrated.
