When will Daniel Day Lewis actually pick an exciting film to star in. I'm serious. I only liked him in gangs of New York; he was an awesome actor in that film. Every other film, though, I couldn't sit through. He seems [italic]bent[/italic] on picking the worst possible roles. The guy could go far but he just doesn't seem to want to.
Actors who are bent on picking disastrously boring roles...

I assume you're joking. Otherwise you're the biggest idiot who ever lived in idiotville.

He really is a failure. Only 3 Oscars & he's 56 years old!

R3, I never said he was a failure. Just that he picks very boring roles. He could be successful as an actor in those roles. It's just that no one gets to see them because they are so boring. I mean serious. I mean have you seen MY LEFT FOOT. Ya...I didn't either.

Well, the academy managed to get through My Left Foot, There Will Be Blood, Lincoln, Gangs of New York, and In the Name of the Father, at the very least. Sorry he didn't join the cast of The Internship to make you happy.

Yeah those 3 Academy Awards are just meh! When will he learn to pick gsood role!!!! Are you for real or is this a joke?

OP, I sort of understand, I love DDL but couldnt go see Lincoln. I like There will be blood because of him, but it wasnt exciting.
My favourite role of his is in The Age of Innocence.
And to the other poster, he is the opposite of Meryl Streep. Much as I love her, her roles are the kind you go to see onyl because of her, at least, for the past 10 years. Mostly garbage.

The Gangs of New York is probably one of the most boring movies ever made.

I do think it's funny that DDL never bragged about the preparation he did for, erm...Nine. I guess because it sucked!

Maybe he'll sign on to be in the next Fast & Furious film.

[R12] I would give that distinct honor to Age of Innocence.

R12 and R16 are the reason we can't have nice things.
