The first film that comes to mind when you think of these actors...

Tools    





I thought it would be interesting to see which role people associate certain actors with, as it may not always be their 'best' role. Of course, some actors are 'chameleon' types like Daniel Day Lewis, and this isn't necessarily a list of actors who you only ever think of in those roles

Feel free to add other actors/actresses to the list:

Colin Firth-
WARNING: "The role I associate them with" spoilers below
Mark Darcy in Bridget Jones Diary

Hugh Grant-
WARNING: "The role I associate them with" spoilers below
Daniel Cleaver in Bridget Jones Diary

Scarlett Johansson-
WARNING: "The role I associate them with" spoilers below
Charlotte in Lost in Translation

Michael Caine-
WARNING: "The role I associate them with" spoilers below
Scrooge in The Muppets Christmas Carol

Alan Rickman-
WARNING: "The role I associate them with" spoilers below
Snape in Harry Potter series

Elizabeth Taylor-
WARNING: "The role I associate them with" spoilers below
Cleopatra in Cleopatra



It's hard for me to answer, as once I see a movie listed next to the actor/actress name, then that movie is the one that pops into my head. Maybe if you had put the movies into a spoiler tag I would've been able to come up with some movies other than the one's already listed.

So how about this:
Joaquin Phoenix
Cary Grant
Reese Witherspoon
John Wayne
Sharon Tate

WARNING: "first films that come to mind" spoilers below

Joaquin Phoenix - Joker
Cary Grant - Father Goose
Reese Witherspoon - Wild
John Wayne - True Grit
Sharon Tate - The Fearless Vampire Hunters



Arnie
John Hurt
Stallone
Robert Redford
Steve McQueen

WARNING: "immediate film associations" spoilers below
Predator
The Elephant Man
Rocky
Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid
The Great Escape


Michael Caine would be Zulu for me.

I just look at your answers for these and mine didn't match any of them.



I only associate Meryl Streep with one thing, "From another planet". As far as her movies go it will be Julia Childs in Julie & Julia. That movie makes me overweight and spoil my diet routine for the day!

Charlton Heston,

Planet Of The Apes
, which I'm sure is the case for many.
Doris Day it's
WARNING: spoilers below
Teacher's Pet
, maybe because it's the only one I've seen her in.
Jeremy Irons,

Mel Gibson and Danny Glover,

Lethal Weapon
. I'm lumping them together since the same movie comes up first in both cases.
