His intensity as the character, his ability to play even the strangest of roles without flinching from who the character is, and his overall ability to make a character believable and alive are just a few of those reasons. He doesn't seem to be one of those actors striving to be famous nor does he seem to take roles that insult his ability.

    Wes Bentley is a true actor. You really believe that he got into acting because he loves it for what it is. You'll never see him in any tabloids and you won't hear any gossip about him. In his roles, you sense more realism than many other actor's who are considered more talented than he. Of all of his roles in all of his movies, my favorite has to be "American Beauty."moreless
