Val Kilmer
Tombstone
1993

Take the story of Wyatt Earp, add a script that liberally combines fact and fiction, hire a cast of b-list stars (Kurt Russell, Dana Delany, Michael Biehn, that guy from Ned and Stacey), and garnish with a few aging superstars (Charlton Heston, Robert Mitchum). A recipe for disaster? Not quite. Throw in Val Kilmer as the terminally dissipated, devastatingly charming Doc Holliday and you've not only salvaged your concoction, but offered up a true delicacy. As Holliday puts it, via Kilmer's perfect Southern drawl, "I'm your huckleberry." And it's true.
