Ghost Dog: Forest Whitaker

Artisan Entertainment

He's going to snatch this Best Actor Oscar for The Last King of Scotland, but have you ever actually seen a Forest Whitaker movie? Shame on you. I'm profiling my favorites, starting right here:

Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai: Whitaker is the ghetto samurai warrior with the ill Mike Tyson-esque pigeon coop on the roof. Real recognize real, as RZA (the mind behind the Wu-Tang Clan and an avid Daily 10 watcher) hooks up the banging score and soundtrack. Peep the way Forest conveys so much emotion yet remains seemingly cold and guarded. Often overlooked, director Jim Jarmusch's hood classic showcases Forest's amazing acting chops. Ghost Dog would put the smack down on Ghost Rider any day of the week.
