Crying Game, Last King of Scotland. He's gripping in both. Strange that you say that. I think he only improves any movie he's in.

He has range too. Unlike a lot of famous actors, he can play different types of characters AND do it well.

I haven't seen "The Last King of Scotland", but I tend to agree with Oz. I thought he was terrible in the movies I have seen him in (Black Panther, The Butler, Phonebooth).

Oh, you type in first names? It's quicker if you only use last names. But then, you wouldn't have gotten Jude Law. I didn't either. He has sort of bland features - I probably wouldn't recognize him if I saw a dozen of his movies. I'd probably say, "Oh, it's that guy I can never remember..."

I usually type in last names only, but sometimes when I'm on a roll I type the first thing that comes into my head, and in this case it turned out well. (I also find that sometimes I can remember the first name but not the last, and typing in the first name triggers my memory.)

The only people here who haven't won an Oscar(as of 2018), are Ian McKellan, Viggo Mortensen, Jude Law, Robert Downey Jr., Lawrence Fishbourne, Ryan Gosling, and Ed Harris.

Seriously??? McKellan not good enough for McKellen? The inconsistencies with which this site accepts or denies spelling errors is baffling. It's the only thing that absolutely drives me nuts about this site.

Alternate type-ins have to be added manually, so it all comes down to what the quiz-maker decides (or remembers) to add in. McKellan has been made an acceptable type-in since your comment, though.

Maybe it's just me, but I think this would have been easier if the photos hadn't been quite so close-up. Cutting off ears and hair for some changed their looks. But I still loved the quiz. (Actually, it might make for a fun quiz to crop out everything but eyes, nose, and mouth - very difficult, but fun.)

This is why I hate alternate spellings being accepted, rather than people just learning how to spell the answer - particularly in quizzes where it's not down to American vs ROW, etc. These are proper nouns with no alternates, but people's 'need' to have Fishburn and Duval accepted throws off my next answers. In a quizz on NAMES with FIXED spellings, this is the building of an idiocracy.

I just knew - apparently incorrectly - that the picture of Gary Oldman was Alan Rickman. Could it be the hair?
