Though not a primary role, he was great in Driving Miss Daisy.
I always prefer reality when I can figure out what it is.
Michael Keaton has done a couple 'serious' roles
definitely Tom Hanks (as previously mentioned)

Surprised nobody has mentioned Bill Murray.

At least two have.

I know he's been mentioned - Robin Williams.
Once he did a "serious" character I was impressed. Somewhere between "Patch Adams", "One Hour Photo", and (as I recall) once on that Special Victims Unit show.
Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul.
Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.
Only in an insane world are the sane considered insane.
Some people listen to the noise of the world,
And some people listen to the quiet.
"All Californians, like all citizens of the United States, have a fundamental Constitutional right to keep and bear common and dangerous arms. The nation’s Founders used arms for self-protection, for the common defense, for hunting food, and as a check against tyranny." Judge Benitez - March 2019

Steve Martin took a serious role in Grand Canyon.
John Travolta went from Welcome Back Cotter to mostly serious movie roles.
Lily Tomlin was known as a comedic actress, I think until the supposedly god-awful romantic movie Moment by Moment (which co-starred Travolta).
I could be wrong, but I think Chris Pratt was known for Parks and Rec, but has had some serious movie roles, such as 2 Jurassic Park flicks, and Passangers.
Ed O'Neill went from Married with Children to a cop show I've never seen
"As I take man's last step from the surface, back home for some time to come – but we believe not too long into the future – I'd like to just say what I believe history will record. That America's challenge of today has forged man's destiny of tomorrow. And, as we leave the Moon at Taurus–Littrow, we leave as we came and, God willing, as we shall return, with peace and hope for all mankind.
Godspeed the crew of Apollo 17."

Interestingly, in the 1991 film adaptation of Flight of the Intruder, the original court martial scene included Ed O’Neill as the flag officer that ran the Court martial proceedings. The test audiences began to laugh as “Admiral Bundy” walked into the court room. The scene was reshot with another actor in the role.

Dragnet is Jack Webb and Harry Morgan. Just the facts maam just the facts.. Putting Ed Oneil in that role was just stupid.
Yep. Forget the name of the movie, but he played the role very well of a Coked up addict. Almost too believable..

I feel like this is a bad Groundhog Day joke...
Success always occurs in private, and failure in full view.
Ed O'Neill's had more serious roles than not. He worked a number of years before Married with children.
Sliced bread, the greatest thing since the 1911.
Adam Sandler is the most recent to come to mind.
|Lost Allman Brother|
Though he certainly still has some humorous scenes, I'd say Bob Odenkirk in Better Call Saul.
Their system of ethics, which regards treachery and violence as virtues rather than vices, has produced a code of honour so strange and inconsistent, that it is incomprehensible to a logical mind.

Kristen Wiig from SNL is a very busy actress. Many here will have seen her in The Martian.
He was the buddy that couldn't go on the mission with Christopher Walken and Tom Berenger in Dogs of War. A very underrated war movie, and one that gives pretty solid insight to old school mercenary work.
|In search of baseball, strippers, and guns|
Jeff Daniels comes to mind
He obviously has done dumb and dumber
And was Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain in Gettysburg (and superb in the role)
He seems to move fairly seamlessly between the genres
If the meek will inherit the earth, what will happen to us tigers?
The movie was Clean and Sober. Incredible performance but depressing story.
