    No not seen that. The only thing I can recall seeing him in is The King's Speech.

    there aint many tbh.... Thats why I like big Arnie. He aint a great actor but boy does he hold the camera well. Tom Hanks used to have it but seems to have drifted last few films after road to perdition

    Robert Shaw. He was an actor with gravitas. Another heavy drinker and tough guy.

    Hanks was great in Saving Private Ryan. Wonderful movie! Cast Away was superb too. Funny thing is, I really like Joe Versus The Volcano he did with Meg Ryan. It's corny, but very quirky and just a touch 'dark'. Good fun and Meg looked stunning.

    Geoffrey Rush is good in everything I have seen him in: 'Shine'; 'Taylor of Panama'; 'Quills' and 'The King's Speech'.

    Regarding Humphrey Bogart. a favourite of mine is 'To Have and Have Not'; debuting Lauren Bacall. "You know how to whistle don't you Steve? You just put your lips together and blow."
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    He was in Pirates of the Caribbean.

    Johnny Depp is a bit of a screen draw too

    Depp is good he just stars in rubbishy films. Donnie Brasco was his stand-out and that was years ago.

    He's in all those Tim Burton films which are all unwatchable. Ruined his career if you ask me.
