Actors who are unrecognizable in some movies?

What are some movies with actors looking unrecognizable to you? More chameleon than heavy makeup or prosthetics.

Two right now:

Amber Heard, Alpha Dog

Jenna Fischer, Hall Pass

I still can't see any of Heath Ledger in his portrayal of the Joker.

You can't? It's pretty obvious it's Heath Ledger under that make-up.

Oh wait, you're saying that he's so good he "completely disappears into the character" right?

I had no idea it was Chris Evans in Ice Man until almost the end of the movie.

Samuel L Jackson in Django.

And I'm not sure if he's "unrecognizable" or just in bad shape, but he's barely recognizable in Goodfellas.

I feel like if I hadn't known who was playing Joker going in I probably wouldn't have guessed until the end credits.

How did Benicio open his eyes that much for Sin City? I never really thought about it I guess.

Jenna Fischer looked a lot different in Hall Pass than usual.

Amber Heard normally looks like a mix of Kristen Stewart/Scarlett Johansson. In Alpha Dog, she looks like a regular blonde.

I didn't realize Christopher Eccleston was in Thor: The Dark World until the ending credits.
