Resolved Question: Do you consider Bill
I love a lot of his older work, like Still Crazy, Love Actually, Blow Dry or The Girl in The Cafe. But lately I can't shake the feeling that he lost his versatility and is only playing "one face fits all lanky strangely moving" characters.
What do you think? Has he become lazy? Does he choose the wrong roles?
BQ: Your favourite role of Bill? Now Now, he was Viktor in Underworld, not Marcus
meepers, I liked him as Davy Jones. But that was one of the last roles I really enjoyed him in. The technical crew also did a fantstic job to translate Bill's expressions into Davy's face, so that it was unmistakably Bill.
