WHO PLAYED IT BEST? GENERAL ROBERT E. LEE
My Two Cents
I actually have a really good idea of who I would give the edge to. So much so that it just kind of jumps out at me. I think Martin Sheen did the best with the character, as good as Robert Duvall was, I don't think he ever made the character his own. It seems Duvall closely studied how Sheen played the part and he closely studied how the character was portrayed in Civil War reenactments, but I never once believe that he made the character his own. It is only Sheen who rose to prominence with the character, stamping his own unique signature on the character. Watch both movies back-to-back and I feel there is a night and day different between the characters. Therefore, I firmly give the edge to Martin Sheen in this round.
