Actors who cross genres

Some actors get pigeon-holed into a specific genre - sitcoms, dramas, even more specific genres like sci-fi or period pieces. Maybe it's by choice, but also it can be hard for viewers (or casting directors) to see an actor in a totally different role, so when they do try, it either becomes a big success or a big failure.

Which actors do you think have been most successful at crossing genres? And who have been the biggest failures?

Jim Carrey is the number one in crossing genres for me! Robin Williams has been a true genius in everything he chose to perform. As for actors who do not get well in such changes, Nicholas Cage is the first person that comes in mind!
