29. 'Seabiscuit' (2003)
As the wealthy businessman and breeder who buys the famous
hard-to-manage horse and helps turn it into an unlikely champion, Bridges mixes brash showmanship with an undercurrent of
pathological relentlessness. His Charles Howard is a man who, for all his
success, has experienced unimaginable loss, and he knows that the struggling
nation – like himself – needs something to believe in. He brings real
heart to his role.
