Every comedy actor seems to have a need to try their hand at a more dramatic film. Here are some of those.

Performance-wise, probably Robin in GWH, with Sandler a close second.

Yeah, I went Williams, although Stranger Than Fiction is a good movie, too. And, really, I suspect I'd have liked Eternal Sunshine except, unfortunately, I haven't seen it. :nono:

Jerry Lewis in The King of Comedy should get a mention

Williams did dramatic roles much more frequently than these other actors, so it's no surprise that he was the best at it.

Isn't Little Miss Sunshine a straight up comedy? Dan in real life has some comedic elements, but for the most part he plays his role a lot straighter than anything else I've seen him in.

Little Miss Sunshine is a comedy but Carrell's performance was a very low key one.

I won't complain about its omission due to its obscurity, but One Hour Photo is serious as all hell and is Robin Williams' finest work by far. An underrated gem

Check out The Way Way Back. He's such a jerk.

For me this is all about Williams, Murray, Sandler, and Carrey, and I think that of these performances Williams in GWH does the best at shedding almost any trace of his comedic self (though this has a lot to do with the writing), so I'll go with that.
