Why all the fuss?
Very simple. Hunger and Shame. Two of the best performances of the last god knows how long. He was fantastic as Rochester in Jane Eyre and what he brings to his smaller roles is anything but predictability, its a scene stealing ability far greater than most supports can manage. He ripped X-men right from under the feet of McEvoy. Theres a subtlety to all of his performances that the likes of Al Pacino could do with learning, or re-learning. By the time he is 40 he will be one of the most respected actors in the world for years. And it will be fully deserved.
