Christian Bale in American Hustle.
The actor gained weight and shed hair to play Irving Rosenfeld, a transformation that got him a Golden Globes nom (and we're confident the Hair & Makeup team would have gotten one, too, if the Globes had that category).

Taye Diggs on New Girl.
His character was apparently named Artie, but who can remember a name when all that's running through your head is ''Ah-OOOOH-gah!''?

Considering her history of controversial public displays of protest, it's no surprise this singer once again stirred up trouble when a young starlet dared to pay homage to her with a ''Ball''-sy music video.

This actor is also an X-perienced Professor, who'll teach you how to do a Quadruple Take like nobody's watching.
8 of 42
Hero of Trekkers, Marvel fanatics, and theater geeks alike proved his awesomeness yet again when he took to YouTube to teach his fiancée the art of the quadruple take. Truth: Any man who acknowledges that hot buns are the best is, himself, the best.

His hair may be funny, but this dude is no joke. Neither is the actor, who has the highest grossing film total of all time.

Much to his chagrin, Lafayette is a medium, which means otherworldly presences have tended to inhabit his body...sometimes with murderous intent. But at least he and they look fierce the whole time.

This Miami hit man opened up the 2013 Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards. His thanks? A noggin covered in slime.

Fans were shocked to say goodbye to this Bad boy during his series' final season this fall.

Dean Norris in Breaking Bad
Fret not for actor who played Hank on the AMC drama for five seasons — even before the series ended, he'd landed a gig on CBS's Under the Dome. Seems fitting somehow...

2 domes + 2 many cars to count = One of the summer's biggest blockbusters

Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson
Fast & Furious 6 pair make shorn look chic (and badass). The car-chase flick netted $238.6 million in 2013, making it the year's seventh highest-grossing film.

Though he was known for his feathered follicles in the '80s, it seems all this former Brat Packer needed for a resurgence was a razor and a meaty, morally ambiguous role.

James Spader in The Blacklist
As globetrotting baddie Raymond ''Red'' Reddington, he's earned major kudos and his second career Golden Globe nod.

Though he aspires to intergalactic villainy, this adoptive father is a softie at heart. He also knows how to wear a tortilla-chip sombrero with panache.
22 of 42
Gru of Despicable Me 2
The reluctant hero may be rough around the edges — and furrowed of brow — but the wannabe baddie sure is a hit at the box office. DM2 was the year's No. 1 animated film and, at time of writing, second-highest earner overall.

This New England mental hospital doctor was responsible for some seriously twisted experiments. There's no way around it: They were a real Horror.

James Cromwell in American Horror Story: Asylum
Dr. Arden was mostly absent during the series' final few episodes, but he created plenty of chaos during the season. And...well...I'll just let EW's own Doc, Doc Jensen, describe it: ''How genius was the scene with Shelley, boiled and dismembered, pulling herself up those schoolyard stairs, as if climbing out of the pit of Hades.''

Boris Kodjoe in Baggage Claim
SPOILER! The One was right across the hall. And he wasn't bald-headed Graham, who proved there is such a thing as ''Too good to be true.'' Also, that wedding rings are removable.

Corey Stoll in House of Cards
In Netflix's hit series, Representative Peter Russo fell victim to his demons when a drunken night gave his fellow Rep. Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) the chance to stage a suicide, preventing Peter from implicating Frank in wrongdoing.

Bruce Willis and John Malkovich in Red 2
After losing Morgan Freeman at the end of Red, pair reprised their roles as Retired and Extremely Dangerous agents Frank and Marvin in the sequel. They brought two times the ammo — and 12 times the patterns!

Sure, his buddy went off to be a lumberjack, but this Magic City forensic investigator has a new relationship in his life in the form of an unexpected daughter.

C.S. Lee in Dexter
Ever the comic relief, actor's Masuka found a reason to get (semi-)serious when he discovered in the series' final season that he'd fathered a child through sperm donation.
