I liked Tom Hank's bosom buddy Peter Scolari better than him. He was in a couple of minor roles with shrunken kids, but deserves better.
Bess Armstrong is in a new movie, but it's a little one, and she has to play second fiddle to Donnie Wahlberg, Marky Mark's brother.

Since you mentioned some TV stars, I was reminded of:
Candice Bergen, who made some wonderful movies, like The Wind and the Lion should be doing the parts of regal queens, etc. that Judith Dench plays. Or the tough Brit spy exec of James Bond films.
Jason Alexander, marvelous in Pretty Woman, is wasted on cartoon voices and weak TV pilots. He has a marvelous singing voice and can dance. He should do a Bio movie of one of the greats of Broadway. George M., etc.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus has much more range than they've let her use. She could actually carry the love interest if they'd let her.
And, sure, why not, Jerry Seinfeld.
He can't act, but that didn't stop Geroge Burns from getting hits out of Oh, God!, Oh, God! Book II, and Oh, God! You Devil
Imagine Jerry in Oh, the Devil! I'd pay to see that!

Other than a semi-important role in Hannibal, I haven't seen Ray Liota do too much lately. And even though they never really got a lead in the first place, I think that the bad guy from The Professional/5th Element along with Mr. Blonde from Resevoir Dogs each deserve more than what they've been given...
