Monday Movie Meme: Future Legends

Oh, I know I miss last week's entry because we were all just got so busy. Thus, I can't risk not joining this week, thus I am making my entry before I go to bed.

For future legends of the movie world here's my predictions:

Leonardo di Caprio
Few actors in the world have had a career quite as diverse as Leonardo DiCaprio's. DiCaprio has gone from relatively humble beginnings, as a supporting cast member of the sitcom Growing Pains and low budget horror movies, such as Critters 3, to a major teenage heart-throb in the 1990s, as the hunky lead actor in movies such as Romeo + Juliet and Titanic, to then become a leading man in Hollywood blockbusters, made by internationally renowned directors such as Martin Scorsese and Christopher Nolan. But such as rich, varied career is what you would expect from someone who has had such an unusual upbring as DiCaprio.

Will Smith
Fourteen of the 19 fiction films he has acted in have accumulated a worldwide grosses of over $100 million, and 4 of them took in over $500 million in global box office receipts. His most financially successful films have been Bad Boys, Bad Boys II, Independence Day, Men in Black, Men in Black II, I, Robot, The Pursuit of Happyness, I Am Legend, Hancock, Wild Wild West, Enemy of the State, Shark Tale, Hitch and Seven Pounds. He also earned critical praise for his performances in Six Degrees of Separation, Ali and The Pursuit of Happyness, receiving Best Actor Oscar nominations for the latter two.

Matt Damon
Matthew Paige "Matt" Damon (born October 8, 1970) is an American actor, screenwriter, and philanthropist whose career was launched following the success of the film Good Will Hunting (1997), from a screenplay he co-wrote with friend Ben Affleck. The pair won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay and the Golden Globe Award for Best Screenplay for their work and Damon garnered multiple Best Actor nominations, including the Academy Award, for his lead performance in the film.

I mentioned Leo, too! I wasn't aware of his role in Critters 3, but I agree with you, coming from cheesey movies like that makes his career today seem even more impressive.

Will Smith was great in Six Degrees of Separation - made a lot of people take notice and take him seriously. He is talented. Plus, I always loved him as The Fresh Prince so I have a soft spot for him ;0)
