Adrian Brody's career to date is something of a puzzle to me. Usually an actor destined for an Academy Award does a few OK movies, gets noticed, does some better movies, finds their stride, wins an (or a series of) awards, and then either continues this streak or at least gets choosy about their projects.
Adrian Brody on the other hand, since winning his Oscar seems to have almost exclusively done the kind of roles even a B-lister would have to be hard up to take. The Village, Wrecked, the King Kong remake, Third Person. Even in Predators (a film I genuinely loved) which didn't have great acting, and Adrian Brody wasn't even the strongest character.
