my favorite movie each of these actors did:
Hugh Laurie: either Peter's Friends or Sense and Sensibility (I'm more into his TV work)
Stephen Fry: Wilde. I also like a Fish called Wanda a lot but he had a very minor role in that.
Tim Curry: Rocky Horror. No contest.
Nicolas Cage: Grindhouse. yes, he was in that.
Jeremy Irons: Man In the Iron Mask
Helen Mirren: Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy
Judi Dench: The Importance of Being Earnest
Susan Sarandon: Rocky Horror
Maggie Smith: Murder by Death
Meryl Streep: either Kramer Vs. Kramer or Manhattan
