Essential Performances of the ‘90s Tournament: Round Three, Showdown 3

As most of you have noted on here and elsewhere, in this third round voting gets a bit tougher. It's been interesting to see which performances have found favour with the votes, and this is one of the two male/make match-ups this round.

If you haven't voted as yet for the round 3 games (and the few remaining round 2 ones) all the open games are HERE.

The bracket continues to be updated, so check to see who's still in the game HERE and if you’re new to the showdown, background on its genesis is HERE. If you’re interested enough and love any of the upcoming performances feel free to defend them on your own blogs and send me a link so (information HERE).

Norton was amazing in American History X because it was the first time I saw him play the exact opposite of the nerd. He can play anything.

This is when I find voting difficult. You have to choose between performances that are quite good, but radically different.
