the many faces of gary oldman

gary oldman would have to be another favorite actor of mine. he is so good at acting that he seems to actually become the characters he portrays. it's hard to even recognize him sometimes. the first time i saw true romance (if you haven't seen this film you need to watch it immediately) i had no idea that it was him playing the character drexl. anyways, here are his top nine performances in no specific order. they are all equally unforgettable.

drexl, true romance

sid vicious, sid & nancy

mason verger, hannibal

lee harvey oswald, jfk

gordon, the dark knight

sirius black, harry potter 3, 4, 5

dracula, bram stoker's dracula

stansfield, leon the professional

ivan, air force one
