Career Bests?

I mentioned this morning in my brief review of "Volver" that it seems a number of actors are putting their best foot forward this year. The more I think about it, the more I think it is staggeringly true across the board. Here are a few actors who, at least in my opinion, are offering their best work to date in 2006:

Jude Law in "Breaking and Entering"
Penelope Cruz in "Volver"
Will Ferrell in "Stranger Than Fiction"
Ryan Gosling in "Half Nelson"
Steve Carell in "Little Miss Sunshine"
Colin Farrell in "Miami Vice"
Ben Affleck in "Hollywoodland"

Hopefully there are more to come.


I would still go with "The 40-Year Old Virgin" for Steve Carell.

Though the upcoming "Evan Almighty" sounds interesting...
