Geena was cruelly robbed of an Oscar for CUTTHROAT ISLAND, too.

Interesting list. Agree with most of it.

Will Sheriff Crider suggest Denise Richards for STARSHIP TROOPERS?

Terence Stamp was riveting in BILLY BUDD but . . .SUPERMAN II? C'mon.

How about,

Ralph Richardson in THINGS TO COME
James Mason, 20,000 LEAGUES
Brian Donlevy, QUATERMASS
Kevin McCarthy, BODY SNATCHERS
Lionel Jeffries, FIRST MEN/MOON
Edward G. Robinson, SOYLENT GREEN
David Bowie, MAN WHO FELL/EARTH
Brad Dourif, DUNE
Dan O'Herlihy, Ronny Cox, ROBOCOP
Tommy Lee Jones, MEN IN BLACK II
Jeffrey Dean Morgan, WATCHMEN

Great suggestions, Fred, and of course I'll stand up for Denise Richards in DOOGIE HOWSER, S.S., er, I mean STARSHIP TROOPERS.

Robert Duvall, who singlehandedly makes THX-1138 worthwhile.

Haven't seen NEVER LET ME GO yet...
