Essential Performances of the ‘90s Tournament: Round Three, Showdown 6

I had mentioned to Andreas on twitter how much I like when the match-ups pit two former co-stars against each other and I had this weird feeling that Susan Sarandon and Leonardo DiCaprio had been in a movie together. Alas, my mind was playing tricks on me (why haven't they played mother and son?), but this is still a tough battle for me.

The bracket for the entire Essential Performances of the 90s performers still in the race is HERE.
