My bet to win it all in the Actors Tournament:

He's got credits up the wazoo, and can work a runway. He was Nathaniel's #1 actor of the aughts. And he's just a hell of a talent. In his corner:

Wilde (1997)
Gattaca (1997)
eXistenZ (1999)
The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999, oscar-worthy)
AI: Artificial Intelligence (2001, nomination-worthy)
The Road to Perdition (2002, nomination-worthy)
Cold Mountain (2003, nomination-worthy)
I Heart Huckabee's (2004, oscar-worthy)
Alfie (2004)
Closer (2004)
The Aviator (2004)
Breaking and Entering (2006)

Enemy at the Gates (2001), Sky Captain (2004), All the King's Men (2006), and The Holiday (2006) were also in there, but weren't exactly brilliant work. Regardless, that killer run from his breakthrough in 1999 through the big blitz of 2004 was really something. What other actor can top this resumé, and this level of hotness? I'm curious to see.
