Discuss Tropic Thunder

Actually, I'm more inclined to think Born on the Fourth of July is his absolute masterpiece, showing a long character arc through some gut-wrenching experiences.

But, rather than being a slick action hero, ever on the run...he plays totally off-type herein Tropic Thunder and nail the role - humour and all - so convincingly it's not hard to miss it was even him at all.

He was hilarious in this. :grin:

I also liked him as "Austin Powers", alongside Kevin Spacey as "Dr. Evil", Gwyneth Paltrow as "Dixie Normous" and Danny De Vito as "Mini Me". All four were doing a parody of the characters in "Austinpussy", a movie that was being shot by Steven Spielberg in the opening scene of the movie "Austin Powers in Goldmember (2002)". :rofl:

He's still the biggest movie star... born on 4th was his best role... he was good in vanilla sky too...

He was great in tropic thunder... a lot of people had written him off, but he came out of nowhere and blew everyone away....

He was at his best in Magnolia

i forgot about Magnolia... great performance...

4th of July, great performance. I also liked his portrayal of Lestat.

Yeah I wouldn't say it's his best role as he indeed has quite a few, but certainly one that blew me away! He was barely recognizable, so out-of-character, and F-ing Hilarious!!

He is generally a good actor. But he hits home run with his role in Tropic Thunder.

Respect the cock! And tame the cunt! Tame it! Take it on headfirst with the skills that I will teach you at work and say no! You will not control me! No! You will not take my soul! No! You will not win this game! Because it's a game, guys. You want to think it's not, huh? You want to think it's not? Go back to the schoolyard and you have that crush on big-titted Mary Jane. Respect the cock. You are embedding this thought. I am the one who's in charge. I am the one who says yes! No! Now! Here! Because it's universal, man. It is evolutional. It is anthropological. It is biological. It is animal. We... are... men!
