Tue, Aug 6, 2019 8:15 PM

Figured this deserved its own thread. I’m also not sure I can limit this to 4, but regardless should get some good discussion going. I’m not counting guys way past prime, or retired. I’m going off who I’d want to lead my movie currently 

Actors: 

  • Edward Norton 
  • Brad Pitt
  • Christian Bale
  • Gary Oldman

That was a pretty quick list, and diving deep may swap a few of my almost made it (who I want to wait and see who others lost first) in there. 

Actresses:

  • Michelle Williams
  • Meryl Streep
  • Jennifer Lawrence 
  • Octavia Spencer

    I find her to be SOO annoying in every role. I'm not sure I've ever disliked a person more than her portrayal in the Aviator.

    Yes! I really struggled with him and Denzel for my 5th. Going to see To Kill A Mockingbird on broadway because of his portrayal in the movie. Jeff Daniels is playing Atticus Finch, btw.
