    Wait, scratch that. I voted for Oldman. He'll probably be demolished here, but at least we'll go down swinging.

    Maybe I just haven't seen enough of their films, but neither really does anything for me.

    I have seen plenty, and definitely appreciate the acting skills both show, but I can totally understand someone's taste simply running in other directions.

    Well, one of the points for Oldman: he's certainly had quite an eclectic range of roles.

    Maybe his later stuff, when his voice seriously changed and lost a lot of its power, but not the Godfather movies, surely...unless...Heather, be honest: have you ever watched either of the first 2 Godfather movies?

    Definitely. It's one of the reasons I hold him in such high regard. Even if he's only filling a supporting role, like Drexl in True Romance, you know you'll be getting something special from him.

    Pacino easier to pigeonhole. Not to suggest that he can't play against type. Just, with such a reputation, I think I can see how some could go cold shoulder.
