What do we mean when we say that an actor is making a comeback? Well, outside of the obvious, we're talking about actors who we're expecting to return to form, not necessarily just return from an absence. We don't care how busy they are necessarily. What we're interested in is quality of work. We've taken a look at the upcoming shows and movies and tried to pinpoint the actors who might do what we saw Winona Ryder do with Stranger Things in 2016. Maybe the actor used to be a household name but, while they have held steady work, they slipped off a bit in recent years. Maybe the star has kept their name in memories of film and TV fans but they haven't done anything worth talking about in a few years. We're not talking about decades of ineptitude here. All it takes is two or three years of sub par work for someone in Hollywood to drop off the face of the earth.

In case you didn't know, 2017 looks like it's going to be a phenomenal year for both television and film. We have so many amazing looking and sounding shows and movies upcoming that it's going to be a big year for a lot of actors out there. It might seem impossible to predict who's going to have a big year, but we can give it a college try. Whether it's an actor who has been largely absent from the industry or a megastar looking for redemption, the actors on this list are the ones that will almost certainly be on the tongues on everyone in 2017. You heard it here first. Here are 15 actors set to make a huge comeback in 2017.

15 Dave Chappelle

14 Johnny Depp

13 Chris Rock

12 Benicio del Toro

11 Alexander Skarsgard

10 Reese Witherspoon

9 Neil Patrick Harris

8 Anna Torv

7 Drew Barrymore

6 Kyle MacLachlan

5 Tom Hardy

4 Elizabeth Moss

3 Dan Stevens

2 Ian McShane

1 Maggie Gyllenhaal

For a long time, Maggie Gyllenhaal has been on the verge of greatness. She's done quality work, but she rarely, if ever, has had the opportunity to fully capture the hearts of American audiences. It might not be fair that she's constantly been in the shadow of her brother, Jake, but it's a reality that she's been living for a long time now. Next year, Maggie's got the chance to star in a show that could be huge, The Deuce. It's got a strong cast that includes James Franco and the subject matter, the p*rn industry in 1970s New York, should be something that fans eat up. Without knowing anything else about the show, we can still work off of our knowledge of Maggie Gyllenhaal. She's never really done anything bad, even a lot of her work goes unseen by most, so we expect more of the same from her. Last time we saw Gyllenhaal, she was working on The Honourable Woman and she was absolutely fantastic. Maybe with more eyes on her this time around, people will begin to see what Maggie Gyllenhaal fans have known for a long time; this woman is brilliant.
