As we are quickly approaching another weekend, for which I hope you have some cool things planned, it’s that time of the week for a new installment of the Friday Faces. This week’s actor is Guy Pearce. This Australian actor has an impressive list of movies to his name. Before he started his acting career he was a competitive amateur bodybuilder. He started acting in the theatre and slowly gained fame by appearing as Mike Young in the Australian soap opera Neighbours. In 1994 he starred in The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert which meant his big break after which he appeared in big movies like Memento, L.A. Confidential and the Hurt Locker. After the break an overview of the many faces of Guy Pearce.
So what is my favorite role of his? It has to be in one of the movies he was in that I gave a 10, Memento. In this movie, which was directed by Christopher Nolan, he plays Leonard Shelby, who suffers from short-term memory loss and is trying to catch the man who killed his wife using notes and tattoos on his body.
What’s your favorite Guy Pearce role?
