A few years ago Ed Norton was in a movie with DiNero about a bank heist and adouble cross or something. I can't remember the title but the ending blew me away! He is good.

When I first saw this thread Lewis popped into my mind. He can do anything. Scary talent.

My vote would go to Kevin Spacey, although I can't disagree with any of the great actors already mentioned.
