Steve Carell as John du Pont In Foxcatcher
When Steve Carrell left The Office we knew there were great things to come from one of the funniest men in Hollywood. What we didn’t realize was that he would appear as the creepy and erratic multi-millionaire John du Pont in Foxcatcher. Wearing a prosthetic nose and speaking in a gravelly timbre, Carell was unrecognizable in the role. He didn’t win the Oscar for her performance but he was nominated – not bad for a guy who had just left the biggest comedic role of his career. Our next actor is a master of method acting and this role was both masterfully acted and creepy.
