The discussion about most overrrated actor is very good, but do you nthink there is one role for every actor, who could probably play it better than anybody? Eg A musclebound ancient warrior who only speaks in monosyllables or grunts or a punch drunk boxer of limited intelligence who gets a shot at the title. Bet you can't guess who I mean Lol
Anyway are there parts played by certain actor - sic who would never have a chance of gracing the Oscar Stage, except for one role in which you felt they were made for the part

Peter Falk seemed born to play the role of Columbo, despite being a very good actor, I doubt most people would know him outside of Columbo, a role he embodied for 35 years and I could never imagine another actor in the role.

Da Parsons, the musclebound ancient warrior sounds like Brendan Fraser in California Man (Encino Man in the US) as well as George Of The Jungle!

Peter Falk also portrayed Guy Gisburne in Robin & The 7 Hoods, a retelling of the Robin Hood legend setting it in the Prohibition era. I never expected him to sing in this!
