All of Sebastian Stan Movies and Series, Ranked by Critics’ Scores

Sebastian Stan, across numerous roles over his career, which began in the early 2000s, showed poise in his varied roles. His first breakthrough came with a recurring role on the teen drama Gossip Girl (CW 2007-2012), followed by a small role in Jonathan Demme’s family drama Rachel Getting Married (2008).

He then joined the cast of the short-lived alternate-reality drama Kings (NBC 2009). The disappointment of that series’ swift cancellation was tempered by key supporting roles in the critically-acclaimed drama Black Swan (2010) and the cult-favorite comedy Hot Tub Time Machine (2010).

After he appeared as Captain America’s sidekick Bucky Barnes in Captain America: The First Avenger (2011), Stan co-starred in the Washington D.C.-based miniseries Political Animals (USA 2012) and the film Gone (2012). He also appeared as The Mad Hatter in several episodes of the fantasy Once Upon a Time (ABC 2011- ) before reprising his role as Bucky in Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014).

Now, we’re ranking all the movies and shows starring Sebastian Stan by critics’ scores from worst to best!
