    Thought it'd be cool to see what every ones favorite role's played by actors / actresses.

    Who you think played the role perfectly etc..

    off the top of my head.. i thought Ewan Mcgregor in 'Trainspotting' was one of his best, and think its one of the best performances Ive seen.

    Leonardo DiCaprio in 'Whats eating Gilbert Grape?' really good film, also starring Johnny Depp. DiCaprio plays a young boy with autism.. Think hes a good actor actually.

    Brad Pitt - Snatch / Ocean films.

    Johnny Depp in 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas' Outstanding performance. Probably my favorite of all time. Just finished reading the book which is also amazing.

    will add more when they come to me..

    Discuss.
