    What are some examples of director-actor pairings that seemed unexpected at the time but reaped great results?

    Some I can think of:
    Yorgos Lanthimos-Emma Stone, The Favourite
    Wes Anderson-Ralph Fiennes, The Grand Budapest Hotel
    Greta Gerwig-Saoirse Ronan, Lady Bird
    Spike Lee-Adam Driver, BlacKkKlansman
    Martin Scorcese-Jonah Hill, The Wolf of Wall Street

    Any others?

    Leo and Marty. After Titanic turned him into Beatles-level teen girl’s obsession, Leo was likely the last actor one would expect to reinvent himself as the Marty’s muse. yet here we are. I just want him to win for a Marty movie.
