    I think it’s a bit too early in his acting career to do a most iconic roles video. He just started

    Loved his character in Byzantium.. .but I could not place the accent he has in it. Definitely doesn't sound British...or American,.I thought he was Scandinavian.

    I thought there was never going to be anyone who held the amount of sheer insanity and psychotic likability that heath ledger brought to the joker... but I think caleb landry jones could be exactly that.

    I think he's an excellent actor. When i first saw him in Byzantium i thought he was british. He was awesome in Three billboards... capturing the midwestern mannerism and way of living.

    Interesting fellow. It seems very premature in his career to be featured in this context. His characters are hardly iconic, but he’s still very young and seems quite talented.

    Not to be hating on Caleb Landry Jones, because I like him in his roles, but... shouldn't you have 'iconic' roles before you can break them down? Either scale down the title, or get those who truly have iconic roles, not actors like Jones, who are good but also at the start of their carreer.

      Larz Justice lol yes and I stated the reason why I had to stop watching. But you have enough time to respond to a complete stranger to try and make him feel a certain way. Start looking at your own character.
