Year in Review: 13 Unforgettable Performances That Oscar Will Overlook

Kyle Chandler - The Spectacular Now

Kyle Chandler

Right behind Dennis Quaid, The Spectacular Now is the best example of subverting expectations when it comes to casting. Friday Night Lights built up an image of Kyle Chandler being that father you’ve always wanted, while The Spectacular Now has him playing the father you never wanted. It’s a nifty idea of casting Chandler, but more than that, it’s a transformation for Chandler done in small and effective ways. This is the type of role that could’ve been done with a bunch of easy tics and such, but it’s an effortlessly natural performance.
