Matthew Rhys, The Americans
He’s a Welshman playing a Russian playing an American. And if that’s not tricky enough, he also needs to make us believe that his character, a coldblooded, KGB-trained killer, is actually a very sensitive, emotional guy — the type who’s always waiting with coffee and donuts when his wife returns from a top-secret mission. In fact, Rhys plays the cowed husband so well, he’ll convince you that his co-star Kerri Russell — who’s all of 90 pounds — is the most dangerous bitch alive. —Melissa Maerz
