This epic list shows appreciation to

200 roles from 100 actors

and additional roles plus

35 bonus actors

that couldn't be left out

It may seem like a lot, but

5178 films

were released in the decade (1130 of which I saw)



Enjoy!

Yeah, I couldn't imagine trying to put this together, so good work. Leo and Owen had a great decade, and I'm glad you had some Cillian Murphy in there, I love him!
