Most of the time, audiences can settle into a cinematic experience safe in the knowledge that what they’re seeing on screen isn’t real - Arnold Schwarzenegger isn’t really a robot from the future, and Chris Evans isn’t really a frozen super soldier from the past. But sometimes, the action on screen is more real than most realize, like when it’s Denzel Washington playing basketball against a pro - and succeeding - in He Got Game, or Daryl Hannah handing Harrison Ford an absolute beating with her gymnastics skills in Blade Runner.

Some actors, as it turns out, have talents and skills beyond the portrayal of fictional characters - and most relish the opportunity to show off their multifacetedness on the silver screen.
