What a difference an actor can make

One performance well worth checking out if you can is Jeff Bridges in "Iron Man." Bridges plays Obadiah Stane, second in command to Tony Stark, (he-who-becomes-Iron-Man) at Stark Industries, the weapons manufacturer at the center of the story.

Bridges transforms himself, doing the 'upsidedown head move of combining facial hair with a shaved scalp. He also plays a no-nonsense business pragmatist who tries to keep Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) focused on the weapons sales at hand.

Bridhes does an incredible job, creating a character who is a million miles from the Big Lebowski. Catch it out.
