Acting: Who Will The Next Great Actors Be

June 8th, 2011 posted by admin

Watching The Godfather the other day, I found myself in complete awe of Marlon Brando. Playing possibly one of the greatest characters ever, he conveys such passion and dedication to the role of chief gangster, that it’s hard to imagine anyone could ever rival his performance. Not only that, but his voice carries such gravity that it’s almost impossible to turn away from the screen when he stares someone in the eye and begins to speak. The same can be said for De Niro and Al Pacino – both actors with stunning Cvs who rarely disappoint.

This led me to think about who the next great actors would be; both the female and male greats who can act the part of a heating oil engineer and do so with such vigor that you almost want to become one yourself: those who become legend in my childrens’life-time. I know that Leonardo Di Caprio and Matt Damon and the like are more than worthy…but are they up there with the former league of actors such as Brando, Pacino and Travolta? I’d like to think so, but part of me thinks that is not and will never be the case.

But then again, perhaps I am wrong about all this – maybe I am being unfair. After all, there’s still time yet for them to all make their permanent marks. Or perhaps I am right? Right now it’s too early to say, of course. What I can say, though, is that there will never be a Godfather remake that is as good as the original masterpiece. I may have to eat my words in 20 years’time but if I do have to, so be it. I will actually be pleased about that.
