Guilty Pleasures: Actors Edition

I can't get into most superstar actors. I can't get beyond their real life persona. Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Denzel Washington are just too damn recognizable.

But once in a while an actor strikes you in the heart with an arrow that is inescapable.

Nicolas Cage is the best worst actor in Hollywood. He makes it really hard for me to like him, but his Adaptations, Con Airs and Face/offs shine beyond his 8mm and Wickermans.

National Treasure is good - nay - it is awesome. There, I said it.

I really love Weatherman.

I like the old N.C.. The "Raising Arizona," "Wild at Heart," and even "Bringing Out the Dead." Now I think he makes some of the worst decisions regarding roles to play...

Yeah, Raising AZ, and I really like Weatherman also. Nowadays he does the Samuel L. Jackson method of acting which is to take every single role offered to him no matter what.
