Nicholas Cage, because he's better AND he gets the sh*t beat out of him  every movie he's in!

Seriously? LOL

Darqdean, I meant Wings of Desire was the original, and the Hollywood version was the travesty that was completely uncalled for...can't remember it's name nor do I care to. It was a stripped down version complete with a brazen classic Hollywood sex by the fireside scene...I'm sorry, but Hollywood has yet to master the art of "subtlety". WoD is a beautiful film, but this version didn't do any justice to the original.

It was called City of Angels and Wim Wenders wrote the screenplay for that too Unhappy

I just watched Much ado About nothing again and I've come to the conclusion that Kenneth had just been boxed about the ears when he cast Reeves. cage is i think the forerunner to Reeves. Neither can act but they wind up with the best roles perhaps due to a blood pact with the Desolate One

Hmm whos the better D list actor? Probably Kiano... Quiano....Keyannoe? But Nicolas Cage has got to be the most overrated, and terribly overrated at that, actor in a long time. I stick out my tongue and blow raspberries at them both Tongue.

Then David and all Israel played music before God with all their might, with singing, on harps, on stringed instruments, on tambourines, on cymbals, and with trumpets.

I voted for Nicolas Cage only because Keanu Reeves manages to stay off the bottom of the barrel by standing on Kevin Costners shoulders.
