Just wondering which actors played the very best movie characters and why... Mine are ofcourse Brando as Don Vito Corleone, but that will be the same for many of us, so let us not go too deep into that. However, apart from that, i found the Antonio Salieri character, played by F Murray Abraham in AMADEUS, outstanding...I mean, quasi all aspects of human behaviour are presented : jalousy, hate, love, longing, grieve, fear, agression, curiosity, crazyness... I also very much enjoyed Jack Nicholson in a Few Good Men, in my opinion one of his best performances though it is not a big role. His character (Nathan Jessep) is omnipresent in the movie, you can feel him...and ofcourse, who else but Jack Nicholson, has the face to play the commander of guantanamo bay... If you goto my journal at the 'celebrity prank calls'-entry, you can hear some guys using Nicholson's voice to fool other people over the phone...it is hilarious...(scroll down to entry nr 14) https://www.physicsforums.com/journal.php?s=&action=view&journalid=13790&perpage=10&page=9 marlon ohh, and did i mention Brando in Over the Waterfront and Hopkins in The Silence of the Lambs ? What about you , ???
