Tim Roth was good in Rob Roy, though I can't think of a single other memorable performance.
I will not deny that Edward Norton is talented. He is. However, I think it is possible to be talented but not so much of an ass. He is a bit full of himself at times and a bit of a baby in his tactics to get his way. While I feel he is dedicated to the craft and wants to make quality work he is also a bit self centered and loses sight of the fact that making a movie is a team effort and by not promoting or speaking positively about projects he's a part of slaps those who work hard with him and around him in the face. He seems to do this on every project, including the Italian Job which I worked on briefly at an ad firm.

As for Tim Roth. He was AWESOME in Reservoir Dogs and Funny Games. He's done a grip of indie films that have been terrific. Even his small part in Pulp Fiction was memorable.
