I didn't see the movie but didn't Anthony Hopkins play a half black man in The Human Stain? (I thought I read something about that in a book review about the book in which the film was adapted from).
I saw the movie (and liked it a lot) but I didn't read the book, because I didn't know it was adapted from a book, but I would like to read it, because the movie was very, very interesting and I thought well-done. I'll try to find it- thanks for mentioning it.
But if he was interracial in the movie - that's something I missed or forgot about. I'll have to watch it again.
Anthony Hopkins is among the actors I will go to see in absolutely anything - any movie of any subject matter (even action) just because I like watching him in anything.
The others I like to that extent are:
2)Denzel Washington - and in fact the scene in Glory when he gets whipped and his work there still stands out in my mind as among the best work I have ever seen by an actor.
4) Ed Harris
5)Chiwetel Ejiofor (he's newer/younger- but I've liked him in every single thing I've seen him in so far- he's very versatile).
I will not watch Brad Pitt for any amount of money - unless he's costarring with Robert DeNiro, Denzel Washington, Clive Owen, Ed Harris, Chiwetel Ejoifer or Anthony Hopkins..
