    Val Kilmer or Dennis Quaid? Keep in mind, I'm not asking which was the better wovie between Tombstone and Wyatt Earp, just which actor did a better Doc. If you haven't seen both movies, don't answer.

    I preferred Kilmers character better (entertainment value) however I believe Quaid probably played a more realistic role.

    Val Kilmer for the win. I've been using "I'm you're huckleberry!" ever since!

    Quaid. No really Val's fault though. The movie he was in was more glitz.

    That was my point exactly. Two entirely different styles of the same movie. BOTH great charcters. :thumbup:

    Kilmer. An odd fellow ... but a riveting portrayal.

    Of course, the role is fantastic.

    Neither were accurate, but Kilmer's portrayal was one of the best characters ever.

    And the movie Quaid was in was a snore fest. :D Kilmer. One of his best roles IMO.

    Kilmer nailed it - IMO

    Much more suave and debonnaire!

    I liked Kilmer, he had some great lines and "panache".
