4. GEORGE CLOONEY AS MICHAEL CLAYTON IN MICHAEL CLAYTON (2007)

"The truth can be adjusted." So says the tagline for this legal thriller about a lawyer who works as a "fixer" for a firm, using his connections, influence, and knowledge of legal loopholes to get clients out of jams when they do nefarious shit like poison people or commit a hit and run. Good to have on your payroll if you're an evil fuck, not so good to have in the world if you're anybody else.
