    Name some actors who so distinguished a role that you can't imagine anyone else playing it.

    Tom Hanks as Jimmy Dugan in A League Of Their Own.

    Sally Field as Norma Rae.

    Bryan Cranston as Walter White.

    Russell Crowe as John Nash in A Beautiful Mind.

    Colin Firth as King George VI in The King's Speech.

    I'll even throw in Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Elaine Benes.

    Have fun, but don't be too obscure. Colin Clive as Henry Frankenstein doesn't count.

    How 'bout Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones? I understand Tom Sellick was also up for the part. In hindsight, hard to see it
