I really like these choices.
My personal ranking of the 5:
1)Brad Pitt (hilarious!)
2)Ralph Fiennes
3)Aaron Eckhart
4)Gary Oldman
5)Eddie Marsan

I would liked inclusion of Tom Cruise for Tropic Thunder xD

A bit boring,i hardly think we needed 2 the dark knight men,i consider it to be way overrated.

marsan wins pitt 2nd 3rd fiennes the other 2 are space takers.

1) Ralph Fiennes (one of the best performances of the year, though didn't use to like him)
2) Brad Pitt
3) Gary Oldman
4) Aaron Eckhart
5) Eddie Marsan (overacted and overshadowed by Sally Hawkins)

Of your list, Pitt would win for me slightly over Fiennes. Eckhart and Oldman were great...but Marsan was borderline terrible.

Personally, my list looks like so:

1) Amalric/A Christmas Tale
2) Downey Jr./Tropic Thunder
3) Ledger/The Dark Knight
4) Irwin/Rachel Getting Married
5) Franco/Milk

Eckhart, Oldman and Fiennes are all fantastic. Pitt is funny, but not hilarious. I haven't seen Marsan.

Anonymous: I probably will do a least a few more supporting before I return to lead again.
