    He was well suited to Valjean in the 1998 adaptation in les Miserables.
    He led a real commanding role in K-19: the widow maker.

    Did his role in Nell make it into the top ten?

    He was good as 'James' your dad in Fallout 3.

    Surely Ethan Frome should be on this list? Surely more sensitive than any of the characters listed?

    And why on earth should I watch 'Kinsey'? I'd spend the entire film trying not to notice his terrible, forced, phoney accent. Meh. Don't get me started on his accents...I am sick to death of being expected to suspend disbelief in order to accept that an American is actually a Brit, or vice versa. No, sorry, if you want an American, get an American. If you want a Brit, get a Brit. Gwyneth Paltrow in 'Sliding Doors' playing a flustered London commuter? Err, no. Rene Zelwegger as a neurotic British 30-something, or Beatrix Potter (?!) Err no. Liam Neeson as a US special forces dude? Err, no. Anthony "I'm so Welsh I'm American" Hopkins as Nixon? Err, no. Any film with Brian Cox playing an American? Err, no. I even have problems with Christian Bale, though I do like him as an actor. His outburst during the filming of 'Terminator: Salvation' was even more cringe-worthy for me, precisely because of his forced American accent that he kept while yelling at poor guy. I'll sum it up like this: imagine casting an American to play a Cockney behind the bar at the Old Vic. That is how idiotic it is. For me, it utterly demolishes the fourth wall before the damn film has even begun.

    I can believe almost anything on screen, no matter how dumb or implausible. But phoney accents just get on my mammaries. And Liam Neeson is one of the worst offenders of them all.

    Mark, you really are an idiot sometimes. You stopped forgiving Adam Sandler for all his crap films because of Punch Drunk Love (the penny has finally dropped, eh?), yet you are still - unaccountably - impressed by Mr Neeson. Why? Apparently you never saw his 'brilliant' performance in that god-awful remake of The Haunting, you know, that classic, psychological horror that you love so much. Really, enough already. The guy couldn't act his way out of a wet paper bag. Schlinder's List was his Punch Drunk Love. It was a one off! Stop defending this buffoon.

    The Grey is a surprisingly existential film, in amongst all the wolf-wrangling, and he's excellent in it. And 'Woman of Substance'! Thank you earlier commenter, I'd forgotten that.

    (Nice jacket Dr K).
