Mine would probably have to be Jack NIcholson, Anthony Hopkins, or Johnny Depp.
WHAT ABOUT YOOOU!?
Well if you set aside about the last 20 years or so of Nicholson, I’d say you have a good list Asher. Those three have put in some of my favorite perfomances.
- Dustin Hoffman
- Emil Jannings
- Gene Hackman
- Jack Nicholson
- James Stewart
- Marlon Brando
- Robert De Niro
- Toshiro Mifune
Brad S. wins
Hackman is pretty decent
not sure why he retired with
Welcome to Mooseport
If this ISN’T the hottie fall-off-your-chair-go-blind actor thread then: Gunnar Björnstrand and Chishu Ryu – mainly bolstered by my contempt at today reading a UK national newspaper describe Bergman as a ‘drag’ and my joy at finding out my that local cinema is showing Late Spring soon.
Marcello Mastroianni in What?, specifically. Although technically that belongs in a different type of this type of thread. (see above).
Marcello is awesome.
Tony Leung Chiu Wa is super freaking cool.
And I think Hugh Jackman is really effing cool, but it’s hard to find someone who agrees with me anymore. :(
Off the top of my head, Tatsuya Nakadai
:And I think Hugh Jackman is really effing cool, but it’s hard to find someone who agrees with me anymore."
He’s good, not often used to the fullest of his abilities, but still pulls the most out of any role he’s offered. Worst movie I saw him in, Val Helsing, he still managed to give a good go.
Ignacio López Tarso
Klaus Maria Brandauer
i’ll take them if nobody else wants them
Off the top of my head:
Joseph Gordon-Leavitt is becoming a favorite (or at least, I like the roles and films he stars in).
Ed Norton (where has he been)
Michael Fassbender (a lead with good acting chops)
Burt Lancaster, I think is my favourite, or at least has some of my all-time favourite performances – Elmer Gantry, The Swimmer, The Leopard, Birdman of Alcatraz. Newman and Bogart are close too.
Al Pacino in the 1970s
(what is the deal with the Batman Topics link?)
James Mason (Tops for me)
And in no particular order:
Robert De Niro
William H. Macy
Philip Seymour Hoffman
Joseph Gordon Levitt
Daniel Day Lewis
