Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy's Gary Oldman
The British chameleon, 53, has played everyone from Sid Vicious to Harry Potter's Sirius Black, but his masterfully restrained turn as Cold War spy George Smiley could nab Oldman a long-overdue first Oscar nomination.
HOW HE NAILED THE ROLE
"The glasses. He's like an owl, with eyes and ears that pick up everything."
HIS FIRST GIG
Regional theater. "I was 21, single and took home 18 pounds a week after tax. I jumped for joy every morning."
ACTOR HE ADMIRES
"Ryan Gosling. He has got it."
ACTING COMES IN HANDY . . .
With his younger sons Gulliver, 14, and Charlie, 12. "When I really mean business, I use what I call my Henry V voice-the one that reaches the gods of the Old Vic. It's very effective."
