Gary Oldman – An Ode.

The latest post-apocalyptic movie, The Book of Eli, was released here last week. It stars Denzel Washington as Eli and Gary Oldman as his Nemesis, Carnegie.

I think the general consensus is, that they are two incredible actors but today I’m concentrating on Gary Oldman because the man can do no wrong in my eyes. The scarier the better if you ask me – he takes bad guys from the slightly unnerving, Sirius Black in Harry Potter, to the positively nauseating Mason Verger in Hannibal. (Forgive me for not posting pics from that). However, I have posted a few photos from some of his other movies (and a couple of token editorial shoots), just to show how utterly versatile he is.
