Anthony Hopkins is most famous for playing Hannibal Lector in Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal, and Red Dragon. I always thought it must have pissed off Brian Cox, who played the character in Manhunter. I digress, Mr. Hopkins is an amazing actor. He has a way of appearing to be the smartest man in the room, always a few steps ahead of everyone else. And his characters all share this trait. He has also had memorable roles in The Elephant Man, Dracula, Legends of the Fall, Nixon, The Edge, The Mask of Zorro, Meet Joe Black, Titus, Fracture, and The Wolfman. Look for him in the upcoming Thor, as well as six other titles from the man who turns 73 today.
