For me it's gotta be "Bill the Butcher" played by Daniel Day-Lewis in Gangs of New York.
It's not that it's my favorite movie, but i do like it a lot. But that was an amazing performance. I just can't think i've seen any better.

Not my favorite films, but Liam Neeson in "Taken" and also in "The Grey."


He is truly an amazing actor.

maybe Orson Wells as Captain Quinlan in "Touch Of Evil"

Kirk Douglas in "Lust For Life" was pretty epic as well

Robert Downey Jr makes a great Tony Stark. I don't know if it's my favorite, but it's the first thing that came to mind.

Maybe Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones - he made the role into a classic character that I don't think would have worked nearly as well with any other actor.

And maybe Johnny Depp as CAPTAIN Jack Sparrow. In the first movie in particular, instant classic.

There have been so many but Bogie in The Maltese Falcon was the first to pop into my mind.

I couldn't possibly pick one. Here are a few that come to mind:

Kevin Spacey - Seven

James Caan - The Godfather

Russell Crowe - LA Confidential

Annette Benning - American Beauty

Vera Cluzot - Les Diabolique

Peter Finch - Network

Al Pacino - Serpico

Chris Cooper - Lone Star

---"This week, it’s Jack Lemmon in “Glengarry Glen Ross.”" Pure subtle brilliance in that one.

I gotta go with Peter Sellers in Dr. Strangelove. Not subtle at all!

I think my favorite role/performance executed with perfect casting is Ian McShane as Al Swearengen on the HBO series Deadwood. Mesmerizing.
