    Default Favourite actors/actresses

    Who are your favourite actors/actresses?

    My favourite actor is Gary Oldman and my favourite actress is Audrey Tautou.

    Then for me it's impossible to make an order, so my second favourites would be: Johnny Depp, Robert Downey Jr, Cillian Murphy, Marion Cotillard and Lon Chaney.

    Favorite actors Gary Oldman for sure and Ian McKellen. Sam Neill and Alan Rickman would both be very high on the list as well.

    Actresses? That's a little tougher. For a while I was rather taken with Billie Piper of Doctor Who fame. I know she was a pop star, but she's really a very fine actress in my opinion. She's also a mighty heartbreaker if an old geek is allowed to say that. Then there is Cate Blanchette and Kathy Bates whom I hold in high esteem.

    As you get older it becomes harder to keep up with the newer talent

    Going back a ways Kenneth Branagh and Emma Thompson made a fantastic artistic film team.

    For me, best actor and actress is easy one, the hard one is who follows, or rather in what order.

    Best actor ever is easily Marlon Brando. Then there are Jack Nicholson, Forest Whitaker, Kevin Spacey, Roberto Benigni, Miki Manojlovic...

    Also, THE actress is Meryl Streep, followed by Cate Blanchett, Jessica Lange...

    Favorite Actor is a toss up between Anthony Hopkins and Jack Nicholson
    Favorite Actress is Kathy Bates

    Ms. Bates position is in grave danger however since "Harry's Law". I am hoping it will die on the vine so I can pretend it just never happened.

    My favorite actor of today would definitely be Johnny Depp with Robert Downey Jr. in a close 2nd.

    It's more difficult to pinpoint a favorite actress simply because it seems to change a lot for me. Recently I was mesmerized by Natalie Portman's performance in "Black Swan", but I wouldn't go so far as to call her my favorite actress considering her entire body of work (*cough* "Star Wars" prequels *cough cough*). That's just a tough one.

    I respect any actor/actress that has the ability to not act, but become whatever character they are portraying. Heath Ledger's performance in "The Dark Knight" deserves mention in that respect.

    Peter O'Toole is also great actor. Lawrence of Arabia is one of my favorite movies.
