Edward Norton

Another day, another birthday. This time we're celebrating another one of my favorite actors, Edward Norton, who turns 42 today. I think my first introduction to Norton's work was in 1999's Fight Club, and although he might have been overshadowed a little by Brad Pitt's character, he still left a resonating impression on me. I started to seek out his work, and I soon fell in love with his acting ability. And so, as a tribute to his career, I've decided to list my five favorite Norton roles. I've supplied short clips from each of the performances in order to give you a little bit of insight into each character in case you haven't seen one of the films. All that being said, enjoy the post and help me wish Edward Norton a happy 42nd birthday!
