Favorite Role: 'Bobby Mercer' in Four Brothers. This could partially be because Four Brothers is my favorite movie. Bobby is tough, protective older brother who is out to seek revenge on the men who murdered his mother. He puts his brothers in danger – and pays for it but his ultimate love for his mother is a big part of the movie and Wahlberg plays tough and sensitive perfectly in his film.

Movies I Still Need to Add to My Collection:
1969

Favorite Role: 'Ralph Carr' in 1969. Downey Jr. plays a kid who wanted to take a road trip with his buddy, played by Kiefer Sutherland, to escape being drafted to the war. In the end he goes to jail for attempting to steal and burn his draft slip and his buddy and mother end up staging a protest walk through town for his release.

Death Sentence

Four Brothers

Total Count: 7

Favorite Role: 'Billy Darley' in Death Sentence. Hedlund could have so easily been type cast after Four Brothers as being a jaded yet still innocent character of a film, or after Friday Night Lights, as a jock with a dead beat dad, but he wasn’t. Hedlund seems to pick films where he can transform himself; he shows that perfectly in Death Sentence. The character of Billy Darley is far from his ‘Jack Mercer’ role in Four Brothers, innocent is he not; he’s a gang leader and a killer. Sure we feel a tiny bit sorry for him because his father basically hands his life over to Kevin Bacon’s character, Nick Hume, then again he did take out the majority of Hume’s family. By the end of the film he finds just a speck of redemption when you see the tear roll down his face before his inevitable death.

Push

Total Count: 7

Favorite Role: Originally I had it nailed down to his character 'Nick Grant' in Push but then I watched his portrayal of 'Jimmy' in The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond and now I can't seem to decide.

*I do recommend a viewing of Loss of a Teardrop Diamond, its a great Tennessee Williams movie.

Favorite Role: 'Martin Riggs' in Lethal Weapon. So we know Gibson is sort of a case now but back in the 80s he was a top notch action star just playing crazy and he played it perfectly in Lethal Weapon.

Favorite Role: 'Frank Sullivan' in Frequency. I really don’t have much of an explanation but if you haven’t seen the movie I recommend it – it’s the anti-butterfly effect. Frank can communicate with his son through an old radio while they are both in different years and one of them is literally dead to the other.

SandM1827's rating:
Rate:

Based on the number of movies I own with them in it.

I had to own 5 or more movies with the actor/actress in it for them to make the cut.

In regard to series movies, which have the same actor, if the actor/actress is only in a series of movies I have, such as Donald Pleasance in Halloween, Halloween 2, 4, 5, and 6 but I don't have any other movie with him in it then he wouldn't make it onto the list. But if I do have other movies with the actor, like Vin Diesel in The Fast and the Furious series and A Man Apart, xXx then they would make it on the list.

List is Ordered by how many movies I own of each actor.

On-going List.

Still Under Construction - Plan to add pics soon.
