Re: Great Actor's Worst or Most Forgettable Roles
The third is much harder to pick but of them all, I'd have to go for Anthony Hopkins, who I think has coasted on reputation for many years. I much prefer Brian Cox or Mads Mikkelsen as Hannibal and AH has tended to either go madly OTT or do his constipated underplaying British thing in roles; there's very little in-between. Admittedly, he's great in the right role and deserves to be regarded as A Great but the rest of that list set the bar high. So...
