Ice T in Surviving the Game


He did do pretty good in that one    ("ALWAYS check the barrel")

However I had to pick Will Smith.    I've already decided he's about the only one out there who can be SUCCESSFUL in BOTH singing AND acting (although I hope his rapping days are over....I don't know that his old school style will be welcome any more  :-\\  )

From the list:  Courtney for Larry.

What?  No Rat Pack?  What about the Kemp brothers (Spandau Ballet) in The Krays ?
Dwight Yokham in Sling Blade ?

Then there were punks & wavers:
Stiv Bators (Lords of the New Church) in Polyester ?
Zander Schloss (The Circle Jerks) in Repo Man ?
Richard Hell (Television, Voidoids, etc) in Desperately Seeking Susan ?
Su Tissue (Suburban Lawns) in Something Wild ?

What about
David Bowie in various stuff?

And so on and son and son....

I agree with you. Will Smith was brilliant in Enemy of the State-not to mention many of his other movies. I haven't seen Ali yet which earned him an Oscar nom.

Cher is also an excellent actor. She earned an Oscar nom for Silkwood. I saw an interview with her when that movie first came out. When she went to see it at the movies, she said that when her name came up on the screen at the beginning of the movie, everyone started laughing. She said they weren't laughing at the end. She was great in Mask and did earn her Oscar in Moonstruck.

Oh man, that movie was soooooo good. I need to watch it again.

If I were able to vote, it would be Will Smith, although I'm disappointed Tupac isn't on there because he was excellent in his movies.
