Are there two Ben Kingsleys? Is there one who gets consistently amazing roles that mine the depth of his acting abilities and another one who takes in things like BloodRayne for some extra spending cash? If the answer is yes, then which Ben Kingsley will we get in this weekend's video game spectacle movie Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time? I'm hoping for the good one.
Kingsley is an anomaly amongst actors, able to somehow manage a career that bounces back and forth between big budget projects from A-list directors, thoughtful indie pieces, and grade-z dreck, all the while maintaining his personal cachet. It's no surprise then that with a career as varied as Kingsley's, deciding on his best role was a real challenge.
