James Cromwell

  1. Gene Hackman, No Way Out, 1986.    For his excellent thriller (labyrinthine and ingenious, said Roger Ebert) the under-praised Aussie director Roger Donaldson tried all ages for the villain politico. From James Caan and Al Pacino at 46 to Gregory Peck at 70. Plus James Coburn, Sean Connery, James Cromwell, Robert De Niro, Robert Duvall, Dustin Hoffman, Tommy Lee Jones, Robert Mitchum, Donald Moffat, Paul Newman, Robert Redford, Burt Reynolds, Jason Robards Donald Sutherland and Jon Voight.   Hackman was 56.

  2. Alfred Molina, Rango, 2010.   Cromwell passed the armadillo Roadkill to the Brit – his first toon vopcing gig. Molina loved it so much, he did three more. Professor Knight in Monsters University 2012, Double Dan in Ralph Breaks the Internet, 2018, and Baron Blackout in Henchmen, 2017
