Best: Tyler Perry
When it was first announced that Tyler Perry would play Nick Dunne's lawyer, Tanner Bolt, eyebrows were raised. Obviously, those people don't know David Fincher, a filmmaker who has never shied away from unconventional choices. Now, you'd expect a publicity hungry lawyer like Bolt to be fiery and loud, but Fisher has Perry portray him as calm, cool and extremely collected. Perry has never been this relaxed on screen and it's a perfect contrast to the increasing craziness going on around Nick. This is hardly a role that will earn awards consideration but it should make many prestige filmmakers (and critics) give Perry a second look down the road.
