SEASONED PERFORMERS. The current boom of young actors still can’t outshine their more experienced seniors. These five fine gentlemen—all of them veteran actors above 40—are living proof of that
Peter Facinelli, who is best known for his portrayal of Dr. Carlisle Cullen in “Twilight,” is not only charming but also versatile on screen. His past roles as a Broadway director in popular comedy drama series “Glee” and as a mourning husband in horror movie “The Damned” showcases his ability to play in a variety of roles and genres. Other than resuming his stint as a good-looking ER doctor in award-winning series “Nurse Jackie,” Facinelli is taking two major roles in the 2015 movies “Odyssey” and “Walter.”
The charming Grant Bowler has, time and again, proven his talent in both presenting and acting. He has hosted “The Mole” and “The Amazing Race Australia” and has also narrated “Border Security: Australia’s Front Line” since 2004. In terms of on-screen performances, Bowler already has two decades of experience under his belt. In addition to playing the lead role of Chief Lawkeeper Joshua Nolan in the sci-fi series “Defiance,” the actor is already set to be the lead actor for two upcoming movies this year: “One and Two” and “Zoey to the Max.”
The ever-so-charming Matthew Fox finally made his much-anticipated comeback this year. While he had garnered great reviews for his roles in popular TV series “Party of Five” and “Lost,” Fox’s recent on-screen appearances have been rather lackluster, especially with his hiatus in 2014 and a grand but short role in “World War Z.” But things are looking up pretty well now with Fox being the lead actor in a couple of new horror movies, namely “The Bone Tomahawk” and “Extinction.”
Having won two Oscars and two Golden Globes for his work in “Django Unchained” and “Inglourious Basterds,” the charming Christoph Waltz is aiming for more this year. Other than “Tarzan” and “Tulip Fever,” the actor has landed a role in the newest Bond movie, “Spectre,” set to be released later this year. What role he will actually play in the movie, whether as friend or foe to 007, remains to be seen. In addition, Waltz also starred in IWC Schaffhausen’s Portofino Midsize Collection pictorial series.
The charm of Pierce Brosnan is just irresistible; people of all ages love him! He was the James Bond until Daniel Craig took over a few years back. The actor has been in the entertainment industry for 35 years so far and his acting skill always shines in the movies he takes part in. Even though Brosnan has been called a “legend” at times, he’s still down-to-earth and readily participating in smaller movie projects. “The Coup,” “The Moon and the Sun” and “Survivor” are some of his upcoming projects.
