Three Oscar contenders walk into a room...

'Revolutionary Road,' the long-awaited, not-so-syrupy reunion of ex-'Titanic' lovers Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, has gotten plenty of awards buzz for its main stars (Winslet even picked up Best Actress at the Golden Globes, one of her two wins).

But gaining steam even faster than either could be supporting player Michael Shannon, who plays a family friend "on a four-hour pass from the state funny farm."

Watch Shannon steal the scene from Kate and Leo (not to mention Oscar winner Kathy Bates, who plays his madre) in this exclusive clip.

'Revolutionary Road' is now playing.
