Actors Acting

By Camille T. Wed, December 29, 2010

The New York Times presented a video series called "Fourteen Actors Acting" which simply showcases actors portraying classic screen types you might see in films. Here are a couple of my favorites:

Javier Bardem   

Vincent Cassel

Anthony Mackie

Jesse Eisenberg

Can you guess what films they were portraying?
