I want to wish a Happy Birthday to one of my favorite actors, Edward Norton!
To celebrate his birthday I put together a list of my favorite movies that he was featured in. The first time I ever laid eyes on Edward Norton was in American History X. A movie that I probably would have never paid attention to because it was about skinheads, racism, and every form of hate possible. (Stay tuned for a future review on the movie) But Edward’s performance was phenomenal. I think most of all I like his voice. So calm and matter of fact. More importantly, he has some characters that coulsn;t be brought to life quite the way he decided to portray them. With the exception of Death to Smoochy…of course. (NO shade…maybe a little)
These are my Edward Norton Picks:
American History X
There’s nothing more priceless than the proud face of someone that has injured another person severely in their underwear. Well done, Edward. But joking aside, this movie is a classic because it shows the 360-degree turnaround of a hate-toting skinhead. After being treated like trash, realizing who his friends really are, this guy decides to change the future for his family. It doesn’t hurt that Edward Norton is at his physical best in this movie. 😉
Who could have been a better choice of being a calm, cool, FBI agent up against the veteran Anthony Hopkins and his slicked-mouthed Cannibal character?
