A lot of times a Comedian or Comedic Actor will take a dramatic role in a serious drama and usually turn in a fine performance. Already, this year is no exception.

The sad part here is that many listed here are listed as comedies. But as you watch them, you quickly realize they are not comedies but either romances or light comedy / drama mixes.
