An actor lucky enough to take part in some of the most influential films of the back half of the 20th century, Harvey Keitel is an instantly recognizable and incredibly respectable performer. Often seen embodying hard-boiled or otherwise tough and masculine characters, Keitel can play things much softer if need be. He’s so great he provides an instant boost to any project his name is attached to.
With names like Quentin Tarantino, Martin Scorsese, Jane Campion, Paul Schrader, and Ridley Scott littered all over his filmography, Keitel is a bona fide all-star with the films to prove it.

With a filmography like this, it’s clear that Keitel is one of the all-time greats.
