    Best Actors?

    Who do you all think is the best, or some of the best actors right now?

    Re: Best Actors?

    Right now, my favorite is Will Smith. I love all of his movies. And he is so diverse. He can play basically any role

    I think L. DiCaprio is in a league of his own at this point.

    Completely agree on Edward Norton; all his movies are good.

    I can't really think of any movies that I like with her, but Drew Barrymore is actually very talanted.

    Harrison Ford is always atop my list too.

    Re: Best Actors?

    I'd have to say Tom Hanks. Hasn't been in anything in a while but who else do you think could pull off spending a whole movie by himself on a deserted island?

    And I've never seen Will Smith play anything that really stretched his acting abilities. I think most of his roles are pretty much the same. I'd like to see him play a villian sometime.

    Co sign. He is the best hands down IMO

    He was phenominal in Blood Diamond

    I have always been a big Matt Damon, Tom Hanks, and Denzel fan

    1. Christian Bale - has been my favorite since American Psycho. Nice to see him finally get his kudos in recent years.

    Norton, DiCaprio, Damon are my seconds.

    Who would have thought this when Titanic came out. I also like Matt Damon.

    Re: Best Actors?

    I would follow the Edward Norton crowd. I like his stuff.

    I will get in trouble for this, but I actually like a lot of Kevin Kostner movies.

    DeNiro and Pacino are still among the best.

    Re: Best Actors?

    Let's see... Of popular actors, I've got to go Johnny Depp, Robert Downey Jr., Christian Bale, Brad Pitt (he hit his peak with "Se7en" and "Fight Club"), Edward Norton, and some more I can't think of at the moment.

    Have several favorite directors, too.

    Re: Best Actors?

    My favorite is Phillip Seymour Hoffman.

    He plays a variety of roles ranging from serious to comedic.

    Re: Best Actors?

    That guy Geovoni Rabisie (SP?) is alway in good movies. He is one of those "that guy" actors that nobody really knows who he is until they see him.

    Also Mark Walburg who I used to hate in life is actually a very good actor. His movie "The Shooter" was excelent and used real Marine Sniper shooting very well. If you ever get that D.V.D watch the extras where he trains with real snipers.
