Cool Videos: Gary Oldman's public service announcement against actor-athletes

Gary Oldman is one of the best living actors to not win an Oscar (yet). He is able to go into any role and completely transform himself. He can be completely off the wall bizarre (THE FIFTH ELEMENT) or play it completely straight (TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY). But, for some reason, it still catches me off guard when he does comedy.

This new video from Jimmy Kimmel Live features Oldman speaking on behalf of the group Actors Against Acting Athletes. This had me smiling on an otherwise stressful day. It makes me want to see Oldman play more comedy roles. While I think he was spot on casting as Commissioner Gordon in Nolan's Batman trilogy and excellent as Sirius Black in the Harry Potter films, I keep thinking about him as Lord Shen in KUNG FU PANDA 2. He plays the humor dryly and to perfection.

Somebody cast Oldman in a comedy film, now!

I smell a new meme...

Hi, I'm Steven Spielberg, you may remember me as the director of such films as '1941', 'Amistad' and 'The Terminal.'

And I'm Al Pacino...star of S1MONE, Righteous Kill, and The Devil's Advocate

And I actually like 1941. Its a mess, but a gloriously charming one.

The point being, you pick movies they ARE NOT known for.
