One Year Spectacular: Top 10 Cast

In our One Year Spectacular, we created four Top 10 lists. Best cast roles, worst choices, best moments, and Top 10 adaptations of the past year of Adapt or Perish. Here’s the first in a series of posts detailing each list.

We mentioned that we came up with a list of nominees that we both chose from for our draft. Some were individual actors, some were pairings, and some were groups. Here’s that complete list. Each will bring you to that episode!

Here’s how our Top 10 Cast came together:

  1. Jeremy Brett as Sherlock Holmes in The Hound of the Baskervilles (1988)
  2. Robin Williams and Nathan Lane as Armand and Albert in The Birdcage
  3. Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy in Pride & Prejudice (1995)
  4. Trini Alvarado, Winona Ryder, Claire Danes, Kirsten Dunst, and Samantha Mathis as the little women in Little Women (1994)
  5. The cast of The Princess Bride
  6. Amybeth McNulty as Anne Shirley in Anne with an E
  7. Stephen Fry as The Book in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (2005)
  8. Ingrid Bergman as Greta in Murder on the Orient Express (1974)
  9. Elisabeth Moss as June in The Handmaid’s Tale (2017)
  10. Bruce the Shark in Jaws

I still can’t believe that Bruce the Shark made his way onto the list. Michael Caine and Patrick Stewart didn’t make it to the list.
