These immensely Hollywood actors who enjoy themselves in TV series

Cinema 15 June, 2017

They swapped the big screen for the small …
Not that long ago, the cinema watched its little brother of the series with a lot of disdain, the connection always being made one way: if you were cartooning on small screen, you had to “devote yourself to the cinema” to climb in range. The level Champion’s League what. A more valid observation in this period of golden age for the series and decline of the 7th art. The Hollywood monuments no longer hesitate to pass a head through the small skylight. The proof.
Kevin Spacey in “House of Cards”
It was thought to associate it forever with this sheitan of Verbal Kint, his cult role in “Usual Suspects” . But for a few years now, the Oscar-winning actor has succeeded in establishing himself as the president of the States in our minds. Thanks to the series of phenomena “House of Cards” where his gifts of manipulator are still marvelous. Special mention also to his wife, Claire Underwood, encamped by the genius Robin Wright, that we saw before in “Princess Bride” and “Forrest Gump” …
His films include “Usual Suspects”, “Se7en”, “American Beauty”, “LA Confidential”, “A Better World”, “The Life of David Gale” …
Tom Hardy in “Taboo”
Quoted at episodic apparitions in “Peaky Blinders” , Tom Hardy gave his person (and his money) to create his own series: “Taboo” . A delirium in 19th-century London, between political conspiracies and shamanism. In short, an ambitious project in which Tom Hardy does … Tom Hardy. The good man does not speak or almost speak, even if it becomes his own caricature. I do not hide that I am done in the 8 episodes, hoping that season 2 finally takes off.
His films include “Bronson”, “Inception”, “The Dark Knight Rises”, “Mad Max Fury Road”, “Men Without Law”, “Warrior”, “The Revenant” …
Tom Hiddleston in “The Night Manager”
England, once again honored. Resting on the duality between spy and arms trafficker, “The Night Manager” recruited heavy for the two leading roles. First with Hugh Laurie aka the punchlineur Dr. House. And then calling on Tom Hiddleston, a regular blockbuster, especially via his role as Loki in MCU. A successful bet since the latter won in 2016 the Golden Globe of the best actor in a mini-series or a TV movie
His movies of ouf ‘ : “Thor”, “Avengers”, Kong: Skull Island “…
Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson in “True Detective”
8 episodes: it was the time it took Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey to bend the game of the series. The first season of “True Detective” is a must for any serious series , whether it is at the level of writing, the visual and sound atmosphere, and of course the interpretation of the Hollywood duo who had already worked Together on the film “Live on EdTV” . Unfortunately, the same can not be said of Season 2 and their successors Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn …
McConaughey’s “Ouf ‘movies: ” Rebel Generation “,” Dallas Buyers Club “,” Interstellar “,” The Wall Street Wolf “,” Magic Mike “…
Harrelson’s films: “The Whites can not jump”, “Killers”, “Larry Flint”, “No country for old men”, “Welcome to Zombieland”, “Hunger Games”, “Unseizable “…
Daniel Radcliffe in “A Young Doctor’s Notebook”
He will definitely spend the rest of his career trying to get rid of his Harry Potter label (good luck). A challenge that goes through the cinema but also the world of series, where little Daniel made a rather successful foray with his role as a young Russian doctor during World War I in the mini-series “A Young Doctor’s Notebook” . Ironically, he shares the role with Jon Hamm, a size of the small screen (“Mad Men”) that tries to make the opposite way towards the cinema.
His movies of ‘ouf’: ah all the Harry Potter
Steve Buscemi in “Boardwalk Empire”
Nothing is ever too big for HBO who through “Boardwalk Empire” has let loose a lot of sorrel so that you think you are in the Atlantic City of years prohibitions. Produced by Martin Scorsese, the series had to attract a heavyweight for the starring role of Nucky Thompson. This was done with Steve Buscemi, who slipped into the smart suits of the alcohol trafficking in Atlantic City. A series I advise to everyone.
His films include “Reservoir Dogs”, “Fargo”, “The Big Lebowski”, “The Wings of Hell”, “Armageddon” …
Tim Roth in “Lie To Me”
And here is his comrade of “Reservoir Dogs” who follows him with “Lie To Me” , where Dr. Cal Lightman, behavioral expert, manages to detect the mythos. A gift he puts to the service of the FBI (Mr. Orange and the police, a great love story). Between us, Tim Roth is the main selling point of this series that does not revolutionize the genre.
His films are: “Reservoir Dogs”, “Pulp Fiction”, “The Planet of the Apes”, “Funny Games”, “The Incredible Hulk”, “The Eight Bastards” …
Nicole Kidman in “Big Little Lies”
With Nicole Kidman but also Reese Witherspoon and Shailene Woodley, “Big Little Lies” has fanned the cast 5 stars, which would make salivate any Hollywood production. But it could be that the mini-series remains in the state of one-shot, the last tendency being to the pessimism concerning a season 2 of “Big Little Lies”.
His films include “Eyes Wide Shut”, “Moulin Rouge”, “The Others”, “The Hours”, “Dogville”, “Paperboy”, “Lion” …
Anthony Hopkins and Ed Harris in “Westworld”
Despite their advanced age and long career as the arm, Anthony Hopkins and Ed Harris had never had regular roles in a series. Far too busy they were to shine at the movies. Well, it should be emphasized that the two monuments did not agree to play in the first series came. “Westworld” is undoubtedly the most gigantic television project of the last decades , and season 1 has barely sketched all the potential of this SF fresco. We want more !
Their movies of ‘ouf’: the list is far too long …
Bonus: Gerard Depardieu in “Marseille”
He could have dispensed with it …
