Jeremy Irons

What is your favorite Jeremy Irons film? How would you rate him as an actor ? For me, I got a huge crush on him from The French Lieutenant’s Woman and Brideshead Revisited but I get that he’s probably not everyone’s type. But perhaps Dead Ringers is his greatest work. What day you?

I adore him, too. He is in my top 5 all time great actor list. I love his voice.

Even though he chooses some very quirky roles, he always outshines the material and is fascinating to watch.

If I had to choose one as my favorite, it would be Reversal of Fortune. The most incredible acting I've ever seen on film.

Reversal of Fortune and Brideshead Revisited

I also liked him as the Big Boss in "Margin Call" (also Spacey, Tucci, Quinto, Badgley, Bettany, Baker, and Demi Moore).

He made me feel all tingly down there watching “Damage” and the “Lolita” remake.

Obviously the ones featuring his frontal nudity! 😃

I think "Damage" featured the full Jeremey, anything else?

Jeremy, sorry

How glorious do I think Jeremy Irons is, in so many ways, including but not limited to that VOICE! ? "You have no idea."

R8 So glad you didn't feel all tingly down there watching "Dead Ringers"!

R15, why not? Picturing having two Jeremies in the sack at the same time sounds nice

Not even an Oscar nod for the best performance of his I've seen: Dead Ringers (1988). The New York Film Critics Circle got it right and named him Best Actor. Dusin Hoffman won the Oscar for Rain Man (1988) UGH!

R16 Just a joke there; but could imagine some sick fucks getting off on what was going on with those creepy yet highly artistic special surgical tools the one designed and had made... Some awfully twisted stuff in that film.

I had entirely forgotten about the incest sub-plot.

I don't know much about his acting except for the gay uncle in Lion King.

Physically looked his best in that third Die Hard movie.

He will forever be Charles Ryder in my eyes, my personal idol.

For an actor with a big name recognition he has a very small number of unforgettable/iconic roles.

by Anonymousreply 22January 13, 2022 10:34 PM

Brideshead, Dead Ringers, Reversal Of Fortune, The Lion King and ???
