Most Versatile Actors In Hollywood

There are few actors in Hollywood who can play a pirate, a cross-dressing movie director, a gangster and a mad barber who butchers his customers, but that is part of the impressive resume that Johnny Depp has been able to put together in his acting career already. There are few actors in Hollywood who are both talented and willing enough to take on some very challenging roles that some actors won't even touch. I have come up with a list of who I believe to be five of the most versatile actors in Hollywood who are fearless and can take on any role.
