Thunderboy: Alphax: Max Awesome: Who the fark is Damian Lewis?

I think I found his IMDB profile.  Nothing I've seen on it.

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0507073/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

As mentioned above, his best work was in the role of Major Dick Winters in Band Of Brothers.  Worth checking out if you're into the war thing.


Well, there you have it - If your most lauded role is being a Major Dick, it's just a matter of typecasting.

Flappyhead: Yes, shame on McKellan for playing an iconic character in fantasy literature.  Also I hear he played Gandalf.


He was also Magenta, the mutant who could move red things around just by touching them.

Mugato: someonelse: I have never heard of Damian Lewis.

He was in that movie about his left foot.


That was Carl Lewis. You know, the famous poll vaulter. I think it was his plant foot.

B.L.Z. Bub: This story just made McKellen sound like a crybaby drama queen:  http://www.contactmusic.com/story/ian-mckellen-offered-to-quit-the-ho b bit-on-the-first-day_3979269

"THIS IS NOT WHY I BECAME AN ACTOR!" As if he expected it to be farking Shakespeare. I can understand being frustrated with the setup he was put in, but A) You deal with frustrations as an actor by sacking up and doing your best, not breaking down crying and making everything about you; and B) How could he not have experienced similar frustrations with the LOTR movies? The same technical challenges were in those movies too (i.e., putting Gandalf and shrunken-down actors in the same shot), so he had to know what he was getting into when he joined The Hobbit.

Yes, he's unquestionably a great actor, but that doesn't entitle someone to act like a little biatch when things don't go their way.

Dwight_Yeast: cygnusx13: Mugato: Am I missing something or has he only played one wizard? Unless the guy thinks Magneto is a wizard.

Those stage actors can be pretentious. Apparently it took forever to convince Alan Rickman to do Die Hard because he though it was beneath him. He's obviously gotten over that attitude since then.

He'$ ¢ertainly more ₩illing to £end his talents to Holl¥wood.

Aside from playing Snape in Harry Potter, he's not worked in Hollywood in a decade, and everything he's doing right now is bits in indie films.

He played Snape for two reasons:

1) when they asked JK Rowlings who she wanted she said she'd written him with Alan Rickman in mind (I read the first book soon after it was published and even I could only see him as Rickman, which is rare for me, I don't hear characters in my head).

2) He knew that his kids would never let him live down turning down a part in Harry Potter


/as far as I'm concerned, "I did it for my kids" is ALWAYS a valid excuse.


which pre-2003 non-Hollywood, indie project of his did you like the best?  Sweeney Todd (2007), Alice in Wonderland (2010) or Gambit (2012)?

He was offered Dumbledore, and refused.

Richard Harris was also knighted, though, so I can see the confusion.

When you're knighted are you allowed to slay mere commoners?
