Anthony Hopkins was on screen for a little over fifteen minuets in Silence of The Lambs. To say he stole the film would be an understatement, he owned it. FOCUS: What actor or actress had an incredibly small role in a film and it ended up being the best role in the movie? I'm not talking about Willem Dafoe or Tom Berenger being a better actor than Charlie Sheen in Platoon I'm talking about an actor stealing a whole movie with a couple scenes. True Romance- Three actors in this film absolutely stole scenes and almost the the whole film (in my opinion of course) Dennis Hopper, Christopher Walken, and the gold metal winner Gary Oldman. Gary Oldman was barely even in this movie but he was in my opinion the best character in the film. Drexel the pimp was just amazing it's a shame he got killed so quickly. He definitely stole that shit, white boy day or not.
