Re: Overrated actors and actresses
Gosling is too much of a mixed bag for me to call him great. I certainly wouldn't call him the next DeNiro just yet. Like I said, I absolutely loved Stay and Gosling was a key part of that movie, I also enjoyed his performance in Half Nelson. His performance is Drive however was absolutely horrible in my opinion, and that's quite possibly the movie that put him on the map along with Notebook. He's a capable actor, I just think some people overrate the guy.
I was a huge fan of Depp when I was younger, but later on in life he's not someone I followed closely. I did love his performance in Terry Gilliam's The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. Mad props to Depp for volunteering to come in and act Heath Ledger's scenes after he died. he and Jude Law literally saved the movie.
