What makes a movie great? Well, there are many factors. Sure, a gripping storyline, a good movie experience, a lead actor who acts great, etc., right? But there are often times when we see a supporting role come into the limelight. Plus, these supporting roles are taken by some A-list actors you never expected. So let’s talk about the days when Hollywood actors took supporting roles and literally stole the show. To look at!
1. Kevin Spacey – Seven
David Fincher’s Seven is a classic in many ways, well, the fact that we don’t get to see the villain anytime soon is one. But one of the elements of the film that stands out is Kevin Spacey’s performance, which continues to raise the bar.
2. Tom Cruise – Tropic Thunder
The movie already had a strong cast and then the director thought of bringing Tom Cruise to the party. Actors like Robert Downey Jr., Ben Stiller, Jack Black and Matthew McConaughey did their part until Tom Cruise did it with his character.
3. Jason Statham – Spy
The fact that Jason Statham is in Spy was no secret. However, his role in the film has never been properly told. Statham’s character was so funny that people were literally in disbelief. He easily stole the show and had a role that was much more than just a cameo!
4. Emma Watson – This is the end
The movie is hilarious because it has legit comedians in every frame of the movie. Stars like Seth Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Craig Robinson, Jay Baruchel and Danny McBride are all part of this parade. However, the crew (in the film) soon realize they are not alone and Emma Watson has managed to survive the apocalypse. Beware of her witty lines!
5. Edward Norton – Kingdom of Heaven
Nortan is an actor in a class of his own and has managed to give us timeless classics. He did the same in kingdom of heaven where he decided it was best to keep his name a secret. He explained that he wants to be billed because Orlando Bloom’s character keeps hearing about him.” A must see movie and appreciate Nortan’s acting.
6. Melissa McCarthy – Central Intelligence Agency
When you’re starring in an all-star cast like Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart, you don’t just step in and take away the torch. Central Intelligence was a movie full of crazy twists and the real one was Melissa’s character who was Dwayne’s love interest!
7. Robert De Niro – American Bustle
First off, if you’re Robert De Niro and you’re starring in a movie, it’s all yours. American crowds is a cult classic with Christian Bale in the lead. Actors like Jeremy Renner, Jennifer Lawrence and more do a great job. However, when De Niro arrives, the film takes a more gruesome turn, establishing himself as the boss of it all in a less than five-minute sequence.
