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.
