Just watched Dracula Superbit and wanted to comment on how this actor is uncanny in how he can "vanish" into his roles..its unreal that he could play so many parts and people often dont know its even him! Ex:The 5th Element, Air Force One..as few examples. He's in my top ten for sure. Will he make yours? Opinions?

He'd be close, definitely the most underused actor IMO. His performance in The Professional is what made me such a huge fan.

Not in my favorites (I don't seek out his movies) but yeah he is one of the greats. The man is a friggin chameleon.

Gary Oldman has played Dracula, Sid Vicious, Beethoven and Lee Harvey Oswald. Talk about being diverse!

He is definitely one of my favorites.

Easily in the top ten. Most of them can't come close.

Take care,
Chuck

He is certainly an underrated actor. And it seems that he's great in alot of his films. Perhaps a performance that gets less attention is his performance in The Professional . Maybe his best?
