The Yes Indeed Papers Salute...

Gary Oldman

Gary Oldman is my July pick for the under appreciated actor. Some of my friends have recommended him to be on my list for a while now. So, I listened. Oldman is incredibly under appreciated. He has been in so many great roles and has only been nominated once for a Oscar. Which is such a travesty. Oldman is the man.  Especially when he gets a chance to do a villain or "bad guy" role. He was awesome in "The Professional"! Check out some of his more memorable roles:

  • Sid and Nancy
  • JFK
  • Dracula
  • True Romance
  • Leon: The Professional
  • The Scarlett Letter
  • The Fifth Element
  • Air Force One
  • Lost in Space
  • Hannibal
  • Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban
  • Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire
  • Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
  • Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows : Part 2
  • The Book of Eli
  • Red Riding Hood
  • Kung Fu Panda (voice)
  • Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
  • Batman Begins
  • The Dark Knight
  • The Dark Knight Rises

Gary Oldman has been named, "my favorite actor" by other actors such as Tom Hardy and Alexander Skaarsgard. He is the man, and needs to be recognized more. I get excited for Gary Oldman movies and I know others do to. So from all of us here at The Yes Indeed Papers (and by all of us, I mean just me), Gary Oldman.....we salute you! Yes Indeed.
