Josh Duhamel is a perfect example of the reality that 'something good can come out of a bad situation'. His 2015 television series "Battle Creek" was recently cancelled after one season of thirteen episodes. No actor wants a television series in which they play a lead role to end but one of the good things that emerged from his time on the series, particularly in the last two episodes is that he showed exceptional dramatic acting range and an unattractive, partly villainous side that has endeared him to fans as an actor.
Most entertainment fans know him as the incredibly handsome husband of recording artist Fergie for his role as Danny McCoy in the television series "Las Vegas". The image of him is as a nice guy both in the roles he plays on-screen and as such he had become to some television and movie fans very predictable.
However, his performance in the comedy crime-drama "Battle Creek" provided him the opportunity to play a role which he could show his ability to portray a complex character, one whom is not just viewed as good-looking but also possessed a devious, villain aspect. He made the character look like a 'bad boy' police detective who viewers would not find attractive which endeared him to fans as a 'complete' actor as he was no longer predictable.
This 'new' villain dimension that he showed has enhanced the image of Josh Duhamel, the 'actor', as fans are now even more intrigued about his role in the independent action-drama thriller "Lost in the Sun" and the 2016 film "Beyond Deceit" in which he will appear opposite Hollywood heavyweights Anthony Hopkins and Al Pacino.
Josh Duhamel showed his ability to be 'dark and complex' on "Battle Creek" and in the process has enhanced his image as an actor 'considerably' with the most important people, the viewers, who now have no idea what role he might play in a project and now will likely try to guess if there are other layers to the characters he portrays in the future.
