Not many people know this, but I’m a big fan of Ben Foster. It’s true that a large percentage of his films are movies that I wouldn’t consider to be amazing – Pandorum comes to mind – but he’s always, always great in them. Take, for example, the movies Hostage, X-Men: The Last Stand, 30 Days of Night and The Punisher. None of them are particularly outstanding films, but I think Ben Foster gives a great performance in all of ’em. Of course, he’s also been in some good movies too; Big Trouble, 3:10 to Yuma and The Messenger, to name a few. Foster turns 31 today.
