What's missing: Honestly, I'm stumped. Ten years ago, round about the time Wilson picked up Golden Globe and Emmy nominations for his outstanding work in "Angels in America," it seemed he was destined for major stardom: a skilled, stage-trained actor with the classic good looks of a young Paul Newman, he landed all the right roles on paper, but never in practice: "The Phantom of the Opera" and "Little Children" were awards-bait projects that didn't quite pan out, "Hard Candy" was a nifty cult item that wound up giving Ellen Page more of a career boost, while "Watchmen" was... well, "Watchmen." He's finally had some hits in the horror genre, with the "Insidious" films and "The Conjuring" both delivering -- but even then, despite prominent roles, his presence was never seen as integral to their success. If he can keep making bank on this kind of material, challenging indie roles may be the way forward. - Guy Lodge
