Notable TV roles: Richard Harrow, Boardwalk Empire (HBO)

The man with the monstrous visage is also—improbably—the most gentle soul on the Atlantic City boardwalk. Huston plays Richard Harrow as Frankenstein’s monster become a hitman, switching between calculated killing machine and lonely alien effortlessly. And all with only half a face! (Plus a speech pattern that had to be difficult to perfect.) Give this man a nomination.
