consider anthony hopkins for Red Dragon also
Bradd pitt for fight club,,curious case of benjamin button
Posted: 3 years, 7 months ago at Sep 14 17:50
Hmmmm... yeah he was great in that film but nothing compared to Silence Of The Lambs.
Well, I love Brad Pitt and The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button but his performance perhaps wasn't as mesmerising or as powerful as any of these actors were in the films in this list.

Anthony Perkins is soooo underrated. Good :)
Wait, there's no Daniel Day Lewis!
