UNDERRATED: Richard E. Grant

Recently seen as Jessa's coke-crazed partner in crime on HBO's "Girls," this actor hasn't been as visible on screen in recent years, but he has few equals as a wild-eyed, often comic force. "L.A. Story," "Bram Stoker's Dracula" and the otherwise forgettable "Hudson Hawk" benefited from Grant's twitchy energy, but best of all was his giddily unhinged portrayal of boozy self-destruction in the brilliant 1987 British comedy "Withnail & I."
