    It's really hard to gauge Dean, he only did 3 movies. I think his best role was in Giant. I love the range he shows in that role from a young man to an old man. He was very good in that movie imo.

    I guess will never know his true potential, considering he died very young at 24.

    Not really. He’s only still remembered because he died young.

    He was good but very good looking so he had that going for him, which is nice.

    James Dean wasn't gay, he was straight as an arrow.

    I don't care if he was gay. Still a brilliant actor.

    Reminds me of Leo, not much range but good in his lane. Being Marlon Brando's boytoy would have taken him far in Hollywood.
