I had no problem with any of the actors, certainly they were not broke the suspension of disbelief for me. It was situations-- such as the absurdly long falls, and I couldn't get by the CGI of the white orc. He stood out as a cartoon to me, rather than a character, and given the direction they took the script, he was a vital character. I think they needed a real actor in make up. If you now tell me that all along that WAS a real actor in make up, then he gets my vote :D

Nicholas Cage. What? You didn't specify Middle-earth movies. And Cage was once considered for Aragorn! =:)
