MVP Of the Week: Lee Pace

posted by Nell Minow

I’ve been a big fan of Lee Pace since I first saw him in “The Fall” and “Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day.”  He has a rare sincerity and magnetism on screen and shows impressive range in creating remarkably vivid characters with just a gesture or a look.  This month, he appears in two high-profile movies. In “Lincoln,” he plays one of the President’s most outspoken opponents, Fernando Wood.  In “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2,” he plays a sinuous vampire who can tell stories about his days as a Revolutionary War soldier.

MVP Runner-up is Rami Malek, another vampire in “Breaking Dawn 2.”  He also appears in last month’s “The Master” as the son-in-law of the character played by Philip Seymour Hoffman.  I first noticed him as the regal but sweet young Pharaoh in “Night at the Museum” and I enjoyed his dim but sweet community college student in “Larry Crowne.”  He also co-starred in “The Pacific.”

Here he is with fellow “Twilight” star Jackson Rathbone in the sitcom “The War at Home.”
