He was good just thought he would be bigger.
English isn't even his first language. You probably haven't seen most of what he has done.

Did you know that Michael Persbrandt, who had a hardly noticeable part as Beorn in The Hobbit is a megastar in Sweden? In Beck he was awesome.

No one cares about Swedish moviestars just like no one cares about NZ ones until they turn up in Hollywood.

Temuiera Morrison Jango/Boba Fett and Aquamans dad vs Dr Ropata and Jake the Muss.

People in their home country care. Which is the point: "A list" depends entirely on what country you are in.

It's also irrelevant. Good actor (or Medicare actor but right for the part - looking at no Orlando Bloom in particular) is what matters.

People didn't turn out in droves to see Iron Man because RDJ was famous (he wasn't then) they turned out because he was good.

It matters for international box office though. Sweden and NZ won't make or break the D&D movie or any other.

Star power not to relevant vs 20 years ago.

You don't need to be a great actor to be a draw though as long as you bring in the punters. Arnold says hi.

Plenty of actors don't hit the big time but skill wise can run rings around bigger stars.

Because they have small populations.

China matters though.

It does but they're not going to care to much about most actors.

Not sure they'll even let D&D get screened there and they take a huge % of the take (75%iirc).

They only let in a certern amount of Hollywood films as well.

Not from the standpoint of getting a movie approved by a studio, it isn't.

Being good works for the critics and reasonably sophisticated fans but it may not be enough to make the money the studios want. Some of the best actors, from a quality and experience perspective, aren't enough to get butts in the seats.
People didn't turn out in droves to see Iron Man because RDJ was famous (he wasn't then) they turned out because he was good.
RDJ wasn't famous before 2008?!? He was famous and notorious. Yes, he's a great actor (well known since Chaplin in 1992 when he got a Best Actor nomination at the Oscars) but he was also cast because he was well known and could easily fit the part given his well-known history with excess. Not famous... the very idea!

I think a lot of this back and forth could be easily be ended if everybody read the original poster's comment of "A-Listers" specifically as "Hollywood A-Listers" which is what is relevant to movies made by Hollywood studios. ¯\(ツ)

Anyone that denies that Christopher Lee isn't an epic and badass well-known actor with a lot of cred in his prior work is just being ignorant. That said, he wasn't a Hollywood A-Lister, which, I believe, is what the original poster was intending to note.

Now that that's sorted, can we move on to anywhere else?

Oh, oh, can you do, "I have not seen any of Grant's movies, but think he sucks..." next?
