Rico Torres / 20th Century Fox
You know, the serious guy who won an Academy Award for starving himself in "The Pianist"? Not to mention his involvement in Terrence Malick's anything-but-comical World War II drama, "The Thin Red Line" and his role as an alcoholic cop in 2006's "Hollywoodland."
Well, that image has changed. Brody starred in the 2007 Wes Anderson film "The Darjeeling Limited" alongside funnymen Owen Wilson and Jason Schwartzman and was the voice of a field mouse in Anderson's 2009 cartoon "Fantastic Mr. Fox."
In summer 2010, he attempts to deftly defy both the horror/action movie genres for his role in "Predators."
