    May I propose another? I thought Tricky’s turn as Gary Oldman’s tremendously ineffectual lackey in ‘The Fifth Element’ was awesome. He was kind of a terrible actor, and that was pretty much the point.

    So true! And that was on my list that I (quite unfortunately) did not write down, and that was the exact one that I forgot. Thanks for that Michael!

    Also, Courtney Love as Gretchen in Sid and Nancy, but she was hardly in that movie to begin with… But anyway, nice one with Tricky! ‘Fifth Element,’ what a movie!

    You know, I never got around the seeing ‘Singles,’ despite my curiosity and the large cast of grunge characters (Chris Cornell’s in it too I believe), which is part of the reason I didn’t include those guys on the list. But, they seem to be holding it down ok in that scene (though all they really needed to do was look unkempt!)

    And that Nirvana interview about ‘Singles’ is pretty hilarious. I wonder if Cobain would’ve changed his tune about rock movies considering the wave of docs about bands he loved that have come out in the past decade-and-a-half. It’s also a bit funny considering Krist’s response and he was recently in “World’s Greatest Dad” (though a really, really minor bit role.)

    Courtney Love as Althea Flynt, couldn’t have been better cast.

    Also, shouts out to Jack White in Cold Mountain.

    And no list like this would be complete without mentioning the richest cheese ever cultured, Sting’s performance in Dune.
