Who knew that Defendor qould actually be a surprisingly twisted and funny affair? Harrelson is one of those whose characters all always different, usually crazy, but oh so ever entertaining.
Charlize hasn’t really been hitting it out of the park in the past few years after some really amazing dramatic roles in the first half of the last decade. But it’s mainly her that makes me interested in Snow White and the Huntsman, which actually (by the trailer) looks quite brilliant!
John Cusack definitely doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to his acting (or directing .. Serendipity anyone?) choices. Despite that he always has this air that intrigues me enough to check out all of his work. He seems like a passionate guy, a guy who really gets into everything they’re doing with such intensity that it’d be a shame to miss that. With 6 (!) new films in 2012, be prepared to place him back on the map.
Despite his inevitable hipster films, Giamatti is one those actors who deliver, in a big way. His talent is incomparable, and is up there with the best character actors of our time. Despite a slur of quirky indie comedies (which imo are being overrepresented) I tend to watch all of Paul’s immaculate work.
She might not be the flashiest or even the most talented actress out there but Naomi still has grabbed onto a place in my mind as a marker of quality assurance. She tends to pick really great scripts, and even if they do tend to sometimes go over to the dark side (and by the dark side I mean the really boring side) she’s still a wonderful actress who deserves more recignition.
I don’t even remember when I realized that Wilson is the man. Possibly after Little Children? Watchmen? I don’t even know why I consider him to be the man. He’s got great acting chops, and I guess I keep watching everything he makes waiting for that one special films that proves he’s got the potential to become one of the best working actors out there. Time will tell.. Prometheus will tell…
