    Heat diner scene. Which two actors today could come closest to achieving the hype that De Niro and Pacino received in 1995?

    In 95 the diner scene between De Niro and Pacino was a big deal since at that point they never shared a scene together. If Heat came out today, which two actors could come closest to achieving that hype/reaction?

    Daniel Day Lewis, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Gary Oldman.

    Either two of these three amazing actors could.

    He was great in Lawless and Constantine.

    Don't think anyone today would get the same hype as we don't have two actors so well known(that's key they weren't arthouse darlings) and respected for playing those kinds of roles.

    The closest I think you could get is perhaps Leo and Pitt but it would probably need to be a somewhat different setup. Not to say I think there on the same level as De Niro and Pacino(although the latter was well into his post prime "hoo haa" phase) but there widely respected and two big stars,

    Transformers, Indiana Jones, Eagle Eye. I don't even remember him in Constantine. Far as I'm concerned his only decent role was in Lawless. Lol at calling him a talented actor.
