25. Psycho Ed, High School (2012)
Portrayed by: Adrien Brody
Adrien Brody is known as a reserved, serious actor, but in High School the dude got in touch with his inner stoner when he played Psycho Ed, a deranged drug dealer who does business mostly with teenagers. Brody sported some faux-dreadlocks and fake ink to play up the character’s manic side for the role, but the truth is that these accessories weren’t necessary because Brody’s acting alone brought us right into Ed’s world.
The dude isn’t high-strung; he’s completely off his rocker. His intense stare and sardonic laugh add to a performance that we didn’t even know he was capable of.
