Starring ... what’s his name again?

To be famous is a ridiculous way to live one’s life. The existence of Paris Hilton proves this. In fact, to be famous is also to invite unwanted scrutiny, ridicule and scorn from mean-spirited journalists like me. But fame is also the only means our culture has devised — besides being showered with gobs of cash — to appreciate the achievements of creative people. So we look at the famous and the not-so-famous and wonder who deserves more, or less, and why.

For example, why is it that Tilda Swinton is less well-known in this country than Rob and Amber? Why am I aware of Rob and Amber’s existence at all? And I bet you just went, “Who’s Tilda Swinton?”

So I’m going to tell you who she is, and nine other actors just like her, all doing very cool work that deserves to be seen and appreciated, some occasionally winding up in big movies or being paid very well on regular TV gigs, but still living under the radar of name-recognition…
