I just started buying the "Sharpe's _____" series. Man, this guy is a hidden gem. Now I've watched his filmography over the past 10 years in the USA, I've got to say this guy rocks. He's played everything from Flawed Hero to Flawed villain. It puts his own dramatic spin on everything. I love the way he delivers lines, such quality. Then, in Troy...I think he shared the stage with Bana and Pitt...should have gotten more credit there. Fellowship of the Ring, no doubt superb. I even got the bit where he pays homage to the Sharpe series (When he's in the house of Elrond and cuts his hand on Narsil). Brillant. Equilibrium was even good with him in it, despite his small role. IMDB states a packed future for him, its good to see the working man get his dues!!!
