Good thought. Can I advance David Tennant?
David Tennant? No you can't. Quirky and camp in...everything tbh
Christian Bale and Leonardo Di Caprio are probably the most talented actors in the film industry atm.
Have you seen Tennant's Hamlet? Hardly quirky or camp.
Really? I saw him as Batman and as the FBI agent in Pubic Enemies - he's good, but he's hardly a great actor, especially when playing alongside Heath Ledger, Gary Oldman, and Johnny Depp.
I think you should watch a few more films of his, he can pull off a wide variety of characters. You should watch Empire of the Sun, his first main lead acting role he played at age 12 - even then you can see he had bags of natural ability. I think if you want to get to Quacker's-level of Bale-Fandom you ought to watch: American Psycho, The Fighter, Empire of the Sun and the Prestige, possibly The Machinist. All of which are brilliant films
the point is he doesnt play ed wood, he doesnt play edward scissorhands and he doesnt play john dillinger.
he plays johnny depp playing ed wood, edward scissorhands or john dillinger.
You could say the same thing about Sean Connery in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and The Hunt For Red October, or Harrison Ford in Air Force One and The Fugitive. Some actors just do that, I don't see why it detracts from their skill as an actor. Perhaps that's what the director wanted?
Depp, Connery, and Ford are all incredibly entertaining, but they do obviously lack certain skills as actors if they can't really "blend in" with a role. It doesn't mean they're bad actors per se, but they can't really be listed among "the most talented."
Nic Cage, obviously
How'd it get burned? HOW'D IT GET BURNED HOW'D IT GET BURNED??!!!??!!
I should see more movies with Tim Roth. For quite a while, the only thing I saw him in was that "Lie to Me" TV series which I found really tiresome. Then I started getting into Tarantino movies and saw that he's actually a great actor!
Really? Really. Not one mention of Ed Norton. I am very disappointed in all of you.
