"We want lead actors to be skilled and attractive. Or do we? AFI rates Cary Grant as the second-greatest actor of all time (behind Bogart.) I was spellbound by "Benjamin Button." I've been knocked out by Brad Pitt's underplaying in several films. Of course he's made bombs, "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" topping that list -- but its odiousness emanates more from the Mrs. than the Mr. So glad to see Brad Pitt making films again. Seems he's left to tend the brood while Ms. Jolie makes unintentional comedies like "The Tourist." I suppose people look at Brad Pitt as they looked at Cary Grant and think: He couldn't possibly have a brain. What, I wonder, will it take for this accomplished actor to receive an Oscar nomination? Is it because of his craft -- because he is so at ease acting in front of a camera that juries are conned into thinking he's doing nothing?"
