DJ Qualls definitely needs to be seen more (and typecast less) than he currently is. I don't care what any of y'all say, dude's got charisma.

LOLZORS. Well, Verne Troyer was already taken...

Nah. I actually do think the guy should get better roles. Does he really have an eating disorder, by the way?

I don't know about an eating disorder, but nobody who is making money from hollywood should look like he just stepped off the train from Austwitz.
maybe he wouldn't get typecast as the skinny nerdy guy if he wasn't so skinny and nerdy looking?

Nerd-ist!

I mean I'm not saying he should be an action hero anytime soon, but maybe he could play a guy whose nerdiness is secondary to the character itself?

Instead, he gets stuff like "I can hack into the Pentagon for you. But as a reward I want the complete collection of SpongeBob Squarepants and a lifetime supply of Hot Pockets" and "I had sex... with a girl!" :roll: His dialogue might as well be "Nerd, nerd, I'm a nerd, nerdy nerd nerd nerd nerd."

what has he done to give you the impression that he can do anything outside the nerd-realm of acting?

and what the fuck is wrong with a lifetime supply of hot pockets???

Nothing, actually. I think that he has a certain (nerdy) quality to him that wouldn't work if it were applied to certain types of characters. But I think he's got this sort of charisma that makes him very watchable, and the fact that the roles he plays are all one-dimensional seems like a waste, to me. I don't know, does that make sense?

I've always been a little pissed off that Irene Jacob, hot French actress, never became as high profile as she deserved to have been whilst Juliette Binoche who I always thought was a bit cold and wooden, (A French version of Andie Macdowell if you will) got such great big parts.

I figured he was gonna be a massive movie star when I first saw him in Down By Law, but apart from that spot as a mad wheelchair-bound bum in Fisher King, and also his turn in Short Cuts, the guy hasn't really lived up to his potential.

It's not like he's got any other talents like playing golf or singing or anything. :roll: Get workin' Waitsy!

I saw the Jane Eyre mini series a couple weeks back, and gods dammit why isn't Toby Stephens a bigger star? He was a better Rochester than I could imagine. Dark, brooding, but still funny. Rather bumbling even.

Must admit, what I saw of this series and this actor, I was wondering who earth the guy was. I really dug the performance he gave. Very heavily showing at first a distant but reassuring character, showing a strong, burdened, brooding and even grumpy a person that deep down was actually quite a decent guy. Again I kept wondering who this actor was or wether he would be a performer worth keeping an eye out for.

Then I only found out the other day that he was actually the bad guy from Die Another Day, a performance worlds apart from Rochester and one I wasn't too keen on but I guess now that's not really his fault, as he was only doing what he had to do to portray a rather annoying blueprint of a villain and to follow what ridiculous instructions he was given to bring him to life. I can say this now as I have more confidence in him as an actor after Jane Eyre, a programme I simply would have turned over after 5 minutes if this guy hadn't been so intoxicating.

Well he went from weasley and slightly irritating to actually pulling off heavyweight, so I guess he's got more versatility that I would have thought. So yeah, an actor to pay attention to.



Anyway, never mind that shit! Check out Sam Grey, who plays the proper prim and proper, seemingly quiet, waif and innocent but I reckon deep down is a right rude 'n' wild 'n' loud 'n' crazy proper goer and screaming mad mofoing nymphoniac(!!!:twisted: ), Alice Chantry on BBC1's Casualty. UKERS!!! SHE'S ON RIGHT NOW!!!!

Damn, she's girlfriend material!! Sweet 'n' redhead - and thin!!!!!

Please make her work more Movie God!! If only to make her results more widespread on Google Image search or that I could be some drooling wet pain in the ass stalky extra on anything else that she does aprt from this show, that I am willing to even sleep with Banthafodder in his bed in Bristol, just so I can be on this programme and hopefully on her, seeing as it is filmed there 'n' all.

Let's see...

Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt, AKA The Mighty Boosh-They're big in the UK, but there's a lot who love 'em here in the US and all we have to rely on is YouTube for their antics.

And of course, three of the funniest Mo-Fos ever-
Patton Oswalt
Brian Posehn
David Cross

And for more foreigners, I'm going with David Tennant and Richard Roxburgh.

And for the ladies, Scottish comedianne Rosie Cavaliero. Her performance as Officer Frank in "Feel the Force" makes me laugh. XD

Should there be a companion thread for "actors who should be smaller"? Maybe so. I think, for example, that Vin Diesel would be hilarious at about 5' 2".

Tom Hollander

Image

I think I mentioned something about him being the best part of Pirates 3 in the review thread... and he was also the best part of Pride and Prejudice. I watched the Ridley Scott movie A Good Year the other day and he has a hilarious supporting role in that. That's all I've seen him in, but each performance differs greatly from one role to the next. He's very versatile. I know it's not reasonable to expect a guy like this to be a leading man, but I wouldn't mind seeing him turn up in more films.

Hollander showed up on an episode of "American Dad" as a knight who tries to convince Francine to turn their game of "Battleship" into a strip version. Best thing he's done IMO.

Anyway, imagine my surprise when I find out Russell Brand (Who most of you Brits know) was in an AMERICAN produced movie. ("Forgetting Sarah Marshall")

(For those of you who can't pick him out, he's the one that looks like he doesn't brush his hair much.)

I once mused that Brand might be a good Withnail if they ever remade Withnail & I...

I know he has a part in the new St Trinian's movie, but I doubt I'll watch that unless it comes on TV, which won't be for at least a year, I imagine.

I think his improv skills are pretty impressive, but strangely a lot of his stand-up performances have been lacklustre...with the result that TV bosses in the UK really like him and want to give him airtime, but they have struggled to find a format which really works for him (apart from Big Brother's Big Mouth, which suffered when he departed)

I think his best performance of late has been as Maddie McCann's suspected abductor....

I gotta work wit this unfunny gentleman in Gulliver's Travels all Summer long. I never did find this wanker funny. How do you like him now, TITG?


TITG?!?!

TIIIIIIIT GEEEEEEEE!!!!! CAN YOU HEAR MEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!????????????


I'm watching Goldeneye right now. Isabella Scorupco. Adoreable, so beautiful, so many other adjectives I say out loud whilst watching her - plus - in this, and in Reign of Fire too - she's so good. Nothing failing in her performance at all. I think she's very strong and effective in this, and definitely one of the better Bond girls and sharing the female eye candy with Xenia Onatopp, you've got a real hard choice as to who to prefer, if prefer one over he other at all.

I IMDB'd Isabella's filmography before and since Goldeneye and am a bit dismayed to see she hasn't done much since. Some foreign movies, some bigger worldwide ones, like Exorcist:The Beginning???? I'm like 'why'? Did she not work so much because she's a European 'actress' that actually was really a model? European actresses rarely work a lot in big international English speaking movies but she's s good in Goldeneye and so gooorgeous that you'd think she would have got more parts. Why not?

I keep thinking, that if I were to cast some faces for a movie, I'd put her on the list and cast her probably.

And yes, she STILL looks good. So why not her work more?


(Sean Bean can fark off though!)

EDIT. Coming back to post after watching Goldeneye and then going back to IMDB I found this on her...


'Was offered the lead female role in L.A. Confidential (1997), but turned it down. The role went to Kim Basinger.

Was offered the lead female role in The Mask of Zorro (1998), but turned it down. The role went to Catherine Zeta-Jones.
'

Nice to know that she WAS actually in demand and wanted by the big movies and parts. Seemed she isn't bigger a name by choice then? Good for her. Seems no more though. As long as you're happy, Izabella. As long as you're happy. But now, apart from putting your other movies on my Lovefilm list, I guess this is Goodbye... :P

EDIT. DAMN! Can't get any of her European movies on there either now. How can you DO this to me, Izabella!?!? This really IS, Goodbye. My lover who could have been - but never was. :P

I used to notoriously rep Gary Oldman. I'd list off his filmography to people who couldn't believe it. Sure, most had seen a good chunk of his resume, but he's just so freaking amazing that the recognition never hit them from character to character.
In the past few years he's gained some attention in pop culture (mostly thanks to Harry Potter and Batman). It's kind of gut-wrenching when people say "oh you mean that guy who played SIRIUS BLACK!" but if it takes that kind of mass attention to get him to a place where he is front-and-center ("Tinker Tailor...") then I say all the power to him.
It's about time he won an Oscar.

Also, Tim Roth.
