The New York Times Magazine always goes all out for its year-end Hollywood Issue, but the magazine has outdone itself this year, producing a gorgeous video spectacle, entitled 'Fourteen Actors Acting: A Video Gallery of Classic Screen Types,' to accompany its annual portfolio of the year's best actors and actresses.

As directed by Solve Sundsbo, who also shot the accompanying black-and-white portraits for the magazine's "The Scene Makers: Actors Who Defined Cinema in 2010" feature, the actors -- Javier Bardem, James Franco, Natalie Portman, Jesse Eisenberg, Chloe Moretz, Matt Damon, Michael Douglas, Jennifer Lawrence, Noomi Repace, Vincent Cassel, Anthony Mackie, Robert Duvall, Lesley Manville and Tilda Swinton -- attempt to, according to the Times, "portray not only the art, but also the joy and vigor of performance."
