4. Bill Paxton in Near Dark - Paxton gives it his all, in only the way he can, in his portrayal of a monster just loving his living death.

2. Robert Downey Jr. in Less Than Zero - Downey manages to overcome the weaknesses of his film to give a wholly heart wrenching depiction of drug addiction through a man whose charisma thinks can keep getting him by.

1. Will Patton in No Way Out - Good predictions Luke, Jackiboyz, Tahmeed, Emi Grant, Lezlie, and Matt C. Patton steals his film whole sale through his absolutely captivating portrayal of a man so controlled on the surface, yet in a way motivated by a powerful passion.
