    1. The list is merely to refresh people's memory of what the actors have been in. You are free to base your decision off of films not listed.

    1. Was it the Pirates of the Caribbean films that turned you off Rush? Or were you never a fan to begin with?

  8. I choose rush because I think he works just as well on opposite sides of the spectrum. I'd just use his work in 98 to argue his case: ridiculously stupid and hilarious in SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE and then excellently sombre and silent in ELIZABETH. Murray can vacillate between comedy and drama, too, but he's easily more convincing in the former, I think.

    1. Both Shakespeare in Love and Elizabeth are good examples, though I found his work in Elizabeth to be far more memorable.
