    Default Who is your favorite actor or actress?

    Well, it's all in the title. Who is your favorite actor or actress, and why?

    My favorite actor of all time goes to Edward Norton. I don't know what it is about his performances exactly, but I end up loving every movie he is in. I think he plays his roles so well as to make him believable as a person. Some of the movies I liked him the best in are:

    Rounders
    Fight Club
    American History X

    I'm looking forward to The Illusionist and Motherless Brooklyn the most.

    Runners up would be:

    Clint Eastwood
    Samual L. Jackson
    Brad Pitt (He's a damn good actor...)

    I never had it like this where I grew up. But I send my kids here because the fact is you go to one of the best schools in the country: Rushmore. Now, for some of you it doesn't matter. You were born rich and you're going to stay rich. But here's my advice to the rest of you: Take dead aim on the rich boys. Get them in the crosshairs and take them down. Just remember, they can buy anything but they can't buy backbone. Don't let them forget it. Thank you.Herman Blume - Rushmore

    My favorite actor hands down is Gary Oldman. I would watch him read the phone book.

    My favorite actess is Charlise Theron. She is amazingly versatile and just a great actress.

    Cool thread!

    Actors:
    Cary Grant followed by a close Johnny Depp. Grant was the man! A true ladies man through and through. Two of my favorites, Talk of the Town and Charade. Outstanding acting. Depp has never tackled a job that he didn't convince me with his performance that it was totally real.

    Russ Crowe, don't know why, just like him
    Bruce Willis, he is just too bad ass on and off the screen (orange suit on Letterman anyone?)

    Scarlett tops my want to bone list.

    James Steward as well. Totally agree.

    I can easily watch "To Kill a Mockingbird" once a month.
    Other notables include The Omen, Moby Dick, On The Beach & Twelve O’clock High not to mention the westerns he did. I’m a sucker for old flicks.

    Natalie Portman

    Jodie Foster

    Jack Nicholson (although not recently)

    Edward Norton in Primal Fear

    Paul Giamatti in Sideways

    Anthony Hopkins in Silence of the Lambs

    It's too hard to cite just one or two. I mean how many good movies have DeNero, Pacino, Nicholson, Eastwood, been in.

    Might as well add

    Johhny Depp for his off the wall roles like Edward Scissorhands, Benny & June, What's Eating Gilbert Grape. And he was fantastic in Pirates of the Carribean.

    Gary Oldman in The Professional among others. Benico DelToro for his many varied roles.

    Of Course how could I forget my all time favorite.

    Christopher Walken.

    Crap I can't stop

    Sean Connery as the one and only James Bond. I enjoyed the hell out of Peter Sellers especially in the first few Pink Panther movies

    A little obscure but if your tastes goes beyond the usual supspects among Hollywood actors- than I present Tony Leung Chiu Wai (Hard Boiled, In the Mood for Love, 2046, Infernal Affairs, Hero, etc).

    Well praised from around the world-by directors to fans to even Robert Deniro !
