Not sure if Vince Vaughn counts but he’s really good/silly in Freaky

birdman

no wait that was the plot of the movie

He counts, he almost ruined True Detective in what was supposed to be that kind of role for him, so he’s got a lot to make up for

What are they, books?

He’s terrible in that, imo.

Robert Pattinson in The Lighthouse

Was this meant to be in this thread?

It’s a film, I think it’s on Netflix. Gets a good performance out of Sandler and Ben Stiller of all people. Worth a watch if you’re in the mood for something talky (which I’m not these days).

I wouldn’t watch that just out of principle from having a name that bad.
