What actor stands out, in your opinion, as giving a great performance in a movie?

I can think of quite a few, and many of them are actors portraying singing greats.

Tonight we are watching Beyond the Sea.....Kevin Spacey's adaptation of the life of Bobby Darin.

And Kevin Spacey delivers an outstanding performance....including his singing voice....amazing.

If you enjoy music and haven't seen this movie....rent it, or better yet, buy it....you won't be sorry!

Two other great performances that come to mind are Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon in "Walk the Line".

Their portrayals of Johnny and June Carter Cash were phenomenal.

USN, your clip from Inherit the Wind brought to mind another good one.

Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird.

And also, Robert Duvall as Boo Radley.

My wife loves that movie. Actually it was her that first introduced me to both movies...I introduced her to Star Wars. She still doesn't think it was a fair trade.

Haha...I'm with her...While I loved the movie in my younger days, I think Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fischer would be a little out of their league for their performances, at least on this list. Now, maybe James Earl Jones' voice......

Omar Sharif, Dr. Zhivago.

I agree with Spencer Tracy & Jimmy Stewart, enjoyed both of those movies, and have watched them many times.

I guess this is more about my favorite movies but all of the acting was excellent in One Flew Over the Coo Coo’s nest and The Sting.

The Sting was a great movie, but didn't you think the sequel was a huge disappointment?

Loved Nicholson in One Flew over the Coo Coo's Nest...all of his performances are great. A few that come to mind are Chinatown, The Shining and A Few Good Men ("You can't handle the truth!").

Another great actor I've never seen a bad performance from is Dustin Hoffman.(He could even play Donman!!)

I have to agree with One Flew Over the Coo Coo's Nest, and Jack Nicholson as a great actor.
