Christopher Plummer
Christopher Plummer is disputing his own Oscars record just two days after becoming the oldest actor ever to win an Oscar.

The "Beginners" star was 82 on Sunday when he picked up the Best Supporting Actor trophy at the Academy Awards, but he thinks Oscars bosses may have overlooked Charlie Chaplin's victory in 1972.

Plummer says, "Charlie Chaplin won an Oscar and he was 83 years old, I think. I know it was an honorary Oscar, but an Oscar is an Oscar... so I think he had the edge on me."

Spotlight On Dramatic Actors Who Choose To Go Comedic

September 22nd, 2009 9:19am EDT
The Informant
Matt Damon may have once started out as a serious thespian with small parts in films like Courage Under Fire and The Rainmaker, but he really didn't make a name for himself until 1997's Good Will Hunting, for which he also won an Oscar for screenwriting. There the blond-mopped young man played deep, pensive, and somewhat brooding characters, so it's a far cry to see him years later donning prosthetic noses and busy mustaches in order to get some added laughs for quirky, somewhat socially awkward characters. But Damon, in movies like the Ocean's Eleven series and now The Informant has proven...

1) Starpulse user Babyumyum asks: "I like Charles Chaplin. How many silent films did he make and why only one talkie?"

Chaplin made his first film, Making a Living, in 1914. That same year, he made 34 more films. According to the British Film Institute, he appeared in 81 films, which includes bit parts and shorts. But research is still being conducted by experts and fans that search for sightings of the actor in old footage.

In Modern Times (1936), he included dialogue for the first time, but it was not a full-length "talkie" and is considered to be the last great silent film....
