as i said in the worst actor thread, the ring wraiths in LOTR film, not strictly speaking actors though.
agree with Snape

can I just say re Atonement .... I think Rosamunde Pike should have got the lead rather than Keira Knightley ....

TheGreatScootini Tue 09-Sep-08 22:29:42

Yes!She would've been better.or Emily Mortimer or someone.(Im not the biggest fan of the Knightley though)

Oh and Christian Bale in Empire of the Sun, watched this the other day again, he was brilliant and only about 13 when he played the part.

I think he is totally brilliant as Joker Shoshe! (mind you, I watched the movie dubbed in Italian, I'm looking forward to get the dvd and watch it in English!)
