8. COLIN FARRELL AS ALEXANDER IN ALEXANDER (2004)
Alexander the Great is one of history’s greatest warriors, a man who was undefeated in battle and led an entire Greek army by the time he was 30-years-old. For his supposed-to-be epic biopic, Oliver Stone needed an actor with an imposing presence, a guy you’d follow into combat without hesitation. So, yeah, someone like Colin Farrell, right? Not quite. The Irishman is someone we’d get into a fight with inside a tavern that has killer Guinness specials.
