He is (by all accounts) a cantankerous old so-and-so at times; but who cares? He’s phenomenal. He is one of the greatest actors this country has ever produced. And I’m talking about total legends like Dean Gaffney, Dennis Waterman, Barry Chuckle – the list goes on. Gary Oldman is intense. He’s mercurial. He is talented beyond belief. It’s sort of incomprehensible that this man hasn’t won an Oscar yet. Although, if I’m honest, I imagine that this entry on WOULD has now sort of surpassed all of his former glory. Majestically rising like a phoenix from the ashes of addiction, Oldman has praised AA in helping him quit all the naughty shit. It is amazing what American Apparel can do these days.
