Albert Finney, AKA Daddy Oliver Warbucks from Annie 1982, as Hirsch in Ultimatum
Sleeper Hit: The first film. It had tested horribly and Universal delayed it for a year to do reshoots. When it opened, it was expected to die a quick death against Scooby-Doo and Windtalkers. However, reviews and word-of-mouth turned out to be quite positive and it managed to gross over $100 million at the box office.
Star-Making Role: Matt Damon has mentioned that despite getting wildly critical acclaim for previous movies, it wasn't until he proved to have Box Office clout that film offers really started to show up.
