The Shakespearian drama 'Anonymous' comes out this weekend so Moviefone decided to put together a tribute mash-up to the most famous (and overused) quotation in literature. Hint: it has appeared in comedies, dramas and horror movies, been delivered in various languages and has even been riffed on by MST3K.
Hamlet will always be a coveted role for actor's, and the range of stars who have played him is quite diverse, from Lawrence Olivier's pitch-perfect drama to Adam Sandler's over-the-top shenanigans. So, watch as the great actors of our time (and some not-so-great) contemplate suicide by asking themselves the eternal question... To be or not to be?
