Those are a lot of Pretty Good Choices.

Re: HARD QUESTION - Number 1 Best Movie/TV Role from Each of these 100 Actors ?

By the way, that was the most difficult test in that profession I've ever had to take!! Some of those actors have careers spanning decades. Martin Sheen alone has made almost 150 movie projects. I had no idea he worked on so many animated films. He's even if the new film about the Black Panther Party that Platonic_Caveman was posting about yesterday. Gonna watch it for sure now since Martin Sheen is in it.

Re: HARD QUESTION - Number 1 Best Movie/TV Role from Each of these 100 Actors ?

You really liked DJango Unchained.
I almost chose The Town, The Doors and Urban Cowboy. I elected the performances instead of whether I was a huge fan of the film or series they were in.

I wonder why he forgot to list Matthew Broderick?

Re: HARD QUESTION - Number 1 Best Movie/TV Role from Each of these 100 Actors ?

I wasn't basing my picks on what I think each one's most iconic roles were, just going by what I prefer to watch more than once that each was in.

It seemed like he was going for action stars, but although I'm not a fan of many of them, I managed to like something each was in.

I was debating on I'm Not There for Heath Ledger but went with Candy, since it was a bigger part.

There are many actors I'd pick over those though.

I couldn't really pick anything for Jackie Chan, since I haven't seen many of his films and what I saw I didn't care for.
He was only a stuntman in A Touch of Zen, but one of my old friends from IMDb raved about that movie on the Film General board…I'd probably pick that but I went with Enter The Dragon since it's the king of martial arts films.
Since Sophie is a huge fan of his, she might have some better suggestions.

The Myth looks interesting to me though.

Otherwise, I would've said Dragon Blade, which isn't really a great film.
