Janelle Monáe

Janelle is obviously an incredible musician, but she is also an accomplished actress! She played in Hidden figures and Moonlight, both of which were nominated for Best Picture at the 2017 Oscars (Moonlight won). Her other acting roles include Antebellum, Welcome to Marwen, Harriet, and starring in season 2 of Homecoming. And if this photo is any clue, she’s got the thriller atmosphere under control.

Kathryn Hahn

Kathryn Hahn can really do everything. She is known for her comedy chops (Parks and recreation, Bad mothers, and a million other things), but her first big role was in a drama!
