Since Gandolfini really should be considered Lead...I'd say the following:Larson - The HuntEdgerton - The Great GatsbyGoode - StokerFoster - Ain't Them Bodies SaintsFranco - Spring Breakers
Matthew McConaghuey in MudJames Franco in Spring BreakersTom Hanks in Saving Mr. BanksSam Rockwell in The Way Way BackJeremy Renner in American Hustle
Oh, and if you feel like it, Danny McBride in This Is The End.
Some people I'd give at least a 4.5 to consider:Matthew McConaughey in MudJames Gandolfini in Enough SaidMatthew McConaughey in The Wolf of Wall StreetColin Farrell in Saving Mr. BanksI won't comment on others I haven't seen.
Colin Farrell - Saving Mr BanksMatthew McConaghuey - MudJames Franco - Spring BreakersJeremy Renner - American HustleJames Gandolfini - Enough SaidEither Casey Affleck or Woody Harrelson - Out of the FurnaceAnd of course Sharlto freaking Copley playing a psychopath in Elysium.
Oh and Louis, could you consider doing more than 5 reviews for Alternate Best Actor, since there are so many great leading performances this year and it will be a shame if some of them were left out?
Kevin: I'm hoping Louis does a short summary similar to some of his alternative supporting years.
Colin Farrell- Saving Mr. BanksDavid Oyelowo- The ButlerThat's all I got. Supporting Actor was really weak this year.
Woody Harrelson, Out of the FurnaceSharlto Copley, ElysiumJames Gandolfini, Enough SaidBen Foster, Kill Your Darlings/Lone Survivor/Ain't Them Bodies SaintsVithaya Pansringarm, Only God ForgivesAnd a special request not to do Franco. :)
Psifonian: I want to see a Franco review above all else. Not because I think it's a great performance (I haven't seen it) but because it's so talked about, I want to see what Louis thinks.
Louis: what is your rating & thoughts on Jeff Goldblum in Jurassic Park.
Rant Time.I thought Sharlto Copley was terrible in Elysium, in fact everything was terrible, Elysium is District 9 but with no humour or heart or passion or energy whatsoever, oh and Jodie Foster, Fuck you, Sharlto also doesnt deserve to have Freaking in his name, he is a one hit wonder at this minute in time (District 9), you say Ian Freaking McKellen, or Patrick freaking Stewart, or someone that is actually really cool and badass.
Would you consider Ryan Gosling to be supporting for The Place Beyond the Pines? And what about Jake Gyllenhaal for Prisoners?
Luke: I'd give him a four. Jeff Goldblum does the sarcastic cynic very well in that film, even if his reprises were less successful. mcofra7: Gosling's right on the border but I think I'd consider him lead. Gyllenhaal is definitely lead.
Also Louis, will Lead Actor 2013 be put on hold until Nebraska comes out on DVD? Or will you find some alternate way of seeing it?
Out of the performances I've seen:Chris Cooper-August: Osage CountySam Rockwell-The Way, Way BackColin Farrell-Saving Mr. BanksBobby Cannavale-Blue JasmineJames Franco-Spring Breakers (I could see people going either way on this one, I personally thought he was very realistic and quite effective for the kind of film it was.)Others I liked:Steve Carell-The Way, Way BackSharlto Copley-ElysiumMatthew McConaughey-The Wolf of Wall StreetKyle Chandler-The Wolf of Wall StreetPaul Giamatti-Saving Mr. BanksTom Hanks-Saving Mr. BanksJohn Goodman-Inside Llewyn DavisJeremy Renner-American HustleRobert De Niro-American HustleDonald Sutherland-Catching FirePhilip Seymour Hoffman-Catching FireZachary Quinto-Star Trek Into DarknessBenedict Cumberbatch-Star Trek Into DarknessJames Gandolfini-Enough Said (Despite what everyone says I still think he's supporting)Josh Gad-Frozen (Because yes.)The cast of This Is the End :PHaven't seen Mud or Lone Survivor, but I like both McConaughey and Foster so I'd welcome reviews for them as well.
Michael: You don't think Quinto is lead in Star Trek Into Darkness?
Also, the only way someone could even possibly consider Gyllenhaal as supporting in Prisoners simply hasn't seen it. He is 110% lead.
I agree with you on Gandolfini, other Michael. While he does have enough screentime to be considered a lead, perhaps, but the movie is really all about Louis-Dreyfus, not him. I mean, if he's lead then the case could even be made that Toni Colltte is too, and that's just not the case.
Matt: He's on the border, since he doesn't seem to be the focus in any of the scenes until after *SPOILER* Kirk dies, whereas in the first one it was clear from the beginning that the story was just as much about him as it was about Kirk. Now that I think about it he probably leans towards lead, it just wasn't as obvious in my mind I was writing that last comment.
MP: Yeah there wasn't a single scene with Gandolfini that wasn't from Louis-Dreyfus's point of view I don't think.
Dane DeHaan- Place Beyond the Pines/ Kill Your Darlings
As for Franco, I thought he was very entertaining and the film's best quality, but nothing more. It's pure ACTING and it either works for you or it doesn't. I personally thought his "all my shit" scene was terrific.
Please don't waste a slot on Copley. His scenery chewing made me like Elysium even less than I was already feeling.
Odd, I thought Copley was far and away the most entertaining part of that film.
