My guess:

1. Prosky
2. Hunter
3. Lithgow
4. Freeman
5. Brimley

Grady Tripp: Yes they will be included in my overall.

Anonymous: When I was picking the line up he completely slipped my mind, I'll tell you what I'll put my review of him when I review Brimley since they can both be considered one scene wonders (Rourke is technically a two scene wonder but you get the idea).

mrripley: I have seen Thief before but not in a long time. I knew I was going to include Prosky when I did supporting so I thought I might as well wait for the refresher on Caan's performance before I included in my overall.

Throw in Christopher Walken with Brimley and Rourke. Tap dancing pimps FTW.

Louis Morgan said...

Alright, why not.

4 old blokes and John Lithgow lol =D interesting line-up.


RatedRStar said...

In fact ill swap round Lithgow and Freeman, Lithgow looks like he would make a convincing killer.

the trailer for Blow Out is awesome.

Matt Mustin said...

RatedRStar: He did make a convincing killer on Dexter, apparently. In fact, he won an Emmy for it.

RatedRStar said...

@Matt Muslin : Ohhh ye I forgot about that, quite underrated is Lithgow.

also Louis, I reckon Lithgow and Charles Durning must have been annoyed that they got 2 Oscar nominations in a row and then never again ever lol.
