Hou placed 20th in 2003 for Millennium Mambo.

All of the actors are new except perennial Edward Norton, who makes his 7th top 20 appearance (and is in third place all-time behind Philip Seymour Hoffman and Kate Winslet). Six of the seven have made the top 10. The others:

1s. The People vs. Larry Flynt
2s. Primal Fear
4. Fight Club
6. 25th Hour
9. American History X
13s. Rounders

And Reitman is new.
