Recently, Gary Oldman has been making headlines for the wrong reasons, but his talent and passion are undeniable.
Oldman is one of very few actors that can truly transform himself into a role, camouflaging himself so completely that you won't even recognize the British actor. With his voice and appearance changing dramatically from one part to the next, you might need a friend to remind you that it's Oldman. Roles like the explosive Sex Pistol Sid Vicious in "Sid and Nancy" (1986) and the volatile pimp Drexl Spivey in "True Romance" (1993) only scratch the surface of what the actor is capable of.
