I agree with Clark Gable as Rhett Butler. Joaquin Phoenix as Johnny Cash, amazing, including the voice. Jonathan Rhys Meyers as Elvis in the Early Years. Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow. John Malkovich as Lenny in Of Mice and Men. Sean Penn as Sam in I am Sam. Madonna as Eva Peron in Evita. Gerard Butler as the Phantom in Phantom of the Opera.

Reverse this -Danny Dyer; is anyone else a bit fed up at this t*t acting the hard man on our screens? I could just about stomach him in The Football Factory but the act is wearing a little thin now.
And as for these docus where he travels the country meeting local firms - they must all be itching to batter the b*stard! So utterly fake - about as hard as Liam Gallagher. The walk, the exaggerated accent, might as well wear a placard saying nob.

Again christopher Loydd as Doc Brown & M.J.F. as Marty McFly. They were born for their roles in 'Back To The Future' (First movie is my all-time Fav)

Eric Sholtz as Marty just didn't look right,plus he did'nt ware the 'Life Presurver'!

Marlon Brando in The Godfather, no-one else could have done it better than him.
Tobin Bell as Jigsaw in the Saw series (say what you will about Saw, Tobin Bell crafted one hell of a character)
Edward Norton as The Narrator in Fight Club, and the same goes for Brad Pitt as Tyler Durden.

lassie -- made for the part

Kevin Spacey - either Verbal Kint in The Usual Suspects or John Doe in Seven.
Tobin Bell - Jigsaw could have been a one dimensional character, but he really brings a sense of power to the role.
Clint Eastwood - The Dollars Trilogy, can you name anyone else who could have filled that part ?
Kurt Russell - Snake Plissken or McReady in The Thing.
Heath Ledger - Genuinely deranged performance in the The Dark Knight.
Brian Cox - The subtle version of Hannibal Lecter.
