First a quick rundown of how this all works for anyone new:
I take all the films an actor or actress has been in and break them down into three categories, 'Good' 'Bad' and 'Okay.' I do not count TV appearances or Made for TV movies. Afterwards a quick analysis will show whether or not they're a good actor by the numbers. Invariably there is a 2-3 +/- point bias on a person to person basis. Also, since 'ok' movies are not bad they count towards the positive column in the overall figuring. If, by the numbers, they fall in the 50 - 60% range, they're a bad actor; 61 - 70% good actor, and 71 - 80% great actor. Anything higher is unlikely, but will be classified as "elite."
Now let's see those numbers:
I assure you, no bias was involved in this. I expected him to score high, but didn't realize how few bad movies he'd actually done. And before anyone assumes I just gave all the Harry Potter movies an automatic good, I did not. Each was graded according to how I felt about it and not all of them made the good column. And with this latest entry at a staggering 81% positive over 19% negative, we have our first official 'Elite' actor. Very fitting for the last BTN of the year.
