    Among past and present character actors who make films watchable for me are Elisha Cook Jr, Jack Elam, Warren Oates, John Turturro, Alfred Molina, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Walton Goggins.

    I forgot about Denzel Washington. And Charlize Theron is usually strong too. So many.

    I've got a bit of a thing for Dianne Wiest. There is a slightly above average comedy with her and James Brolin, in it for about 5 minutes, and much as the others are really good, those fuckers shine.

    Naomi Watts in Mulholland Drive was something else. Even if I wasn’t tripping balls first watch, the scene where she does the audition after her earlier Betsy Betsy line reading with Camilla, fucking hell.

    It’s a pity almost everything she’s been in since has either been worthy rubbish like 21 grams, or piss poor shite like King Kong. Though she’s usually very good herself. But not in the Diana flick, holy fuck. I’ve never seen such mince outside that 80s Beach Boys biopic. That shit was beyond woescious. A bit worried my ma kept watching it, despite saying she hated it. One day I’ll come back for Christmas and there’ll be commemorative plates bought from the Express all over the living room (suddenly out of bounds “front room” and for “guests”).

    I too love Denzel Washington, but he's blotted his copybook a bit in recent years. The Equalizer was a massive pile of mediocrity (I was gutted because I liked the Edward Woodward series and desperately wanted the Denzel movie to be a good 'un) that's somehow getting an undeserved sequel, the Pelham 123 remake was rendered unwatchable by Travolta's hammy nonsense and 2 Guns was a classic case of spending all of the budget on the stars (Denzel, Mark Wahlberg, Paula Patton and Bill Paxton) and about nine dollars on the script.

    I read that as “gear” rather than a typo of great and thought you were getting all EIM (do Mancs say gear? Davy Jones would).

    I very nearly agree with that. BUT, his performance in Ray Donovan is awful. He hams it up with absolutely no nuance. He is determined that if he can't steal the scene, he'll at least chew the scenery. Knowing what the man can do, it's a risible performance.

    Ah, I thought I'd read that he'd retired (early) from acting. I must be getting mixed up with someone else. Fixed now.

    Maybe he has. Wouldn’t be the first time I’d have to sit corrected.

    He was/is in the Bond films. Oh I see...

    Daniel Day-Lewis has retired. He says.

    I heartily recommend "The Journeyman", which he also directed.

    Would have said Peter Mullen, but I hated him in Red Riding, which I also felt made a hames of the David Peace books.

    Loads of the ones people have said and I’ll add that Jeremy Isaacs is always great. Rewatched Death of Stalin last night. Wonderful.
