Tim Roth: 5 Awesome Performances And 5 That Sucked

Like a subtle, aged ham.

It's easy to forget about Tim Roth until he suddenly pops up in something and reminds you as to how immensely talented he actually is. Still perhaps best known today for his work with Quentin Tarantino, Roth also came to mainstream attention on the now-cancelled TV show Lie To Me. As one of Britain's most acclaimed acting talents, the beauty of Tim Roth stems from the fact that you can put him just about anywhere and he'll thrive: in a secondary role or as a leading man, he's perfectly capable in equal measure; indeed, Roth has proven time and time again that he can't be pigeon-holed. You're just as likely to find him in a massive blockbuster as you are an indie gem. And he rarely plays the same character type twice. Roth's abilities are apparently endless, too, given the fact that he has shown movie-goers on a number of occasions that he can play characters with immensely subtlety. But you're also in need of a hammy, scenery-chewing villain for another movie? Roth's your man. So to celebrate the actor for all his accomplishments, and the release of his latest team-up with Quentin Tarantino for The Hateful Eight, join us as we take a look at 5 Awesome Performance and 5 That Sucked...
