2015 in Review: Constance Zimmer, Aziz Ansari and 26 More TV MVPs

Quality is better than quantity, the saying goes. But what if you can have both?

Take, for instance, TVLine’s picks for 2015’s Most Valuable Players. All of the actors featured in the gallery below held down at least two jobs — and some many more — in the past 12 months. Series regulars, guest gigs, hosting duties: They were up for it all.

We looked back over the year and chose these 28 performers as 2015’s busiest. Our list includes a British Army captain-turned-OB-GYN, a sassy security guard-turned-caring-nurse, and an oncologist-turned-sea-witch — all of whom might want to send their agents a thank-you basket of some sort.

Click through the gallery below — or access it directly here — to meet 2015’s MVPs.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Tovah Feldshuh’s rendition of ‘Where’s the Bathroom’ is probably in my top 10 TV moments of 2015.

  2. Lindsey says:

    Alycia Debnam-Carey, anyone?

  3. Mike says:

    Keegan-Michael Key also had appearances on Whose Line Is It Anyways.

  4. borkak says:

    Mary Steenburgen was also very good as an eccentric aunt in Jim Henson’s Turkey Hollow this year.

  5. Reba42 says:

    The cast of The League is some of the hardest working people in show business.
    Mark Duplass is on Togetherness, TMP, as well as movies.
    Kroll had the Kroll Show, P&R, B99, Kimmy Schmidt, and Oh Hello.
    Scheer has 19 credits on his IMDB for 2015.

    Not to mention Rafi, Meegan, Russel, Chuck, and Frank the Body. Those guys are everywhere.

  6. Mr. Tran K says:

    Mark Pellegrino FTW

  7. HAP says:

    Error in the captioning of #22, Keegan-Michael Key. He is referred to near the end as Peele.

  8. K says:

    Yes to Wilson Bethel! Someone cast him in a pilot next year!!!

  9. Shaun says:

    Love Bridget Regan so much.

  10. Emily says:

    Where is Alycia Debnam Carey? Badass Lexa in The 100 and a regular on Fear the Walking Dead.

  11. Jo says:

    So glad to see Wilson Bethel included. Hope to see him in a lead role in 2016!

  12. Janell says:

    What about Aisha Tyler?

  13. S McMary says:

    I’d like to add Cameron Monaghan for Shameless and Gotham and Raul Esparza for SVU and Hanniball.

  14. Adam says:

    I would add Paget Brewster who not only had three major supporting comedy roles this year, but stole the show in each: Community, Grandfathered, and Another Period.

  15. Timmah says:

    I’ve got to give Aziz credit. He’s made it pretty far in comedy for not being funny.

  16. mick says:

    John Noble was also on a Australia mini series called Devils Playground this year.
