    Tyler, you’re alone in that department…while I loved him in the movie, he got terrible reviews for the film and they didn’t even want him in the part, but were pressured to cast him

    If Tony Curtis was there for “Some Like it Hot” that would have gotten my vote but out of the choices give I went with Anthony Perkins

    I would have put Spacey in supporting with the more-deserving James Cromwell for L.A. Confidential, and would have pit Guy Pearce against Russell Crowe in lead
