    In the past, I liked Gregory Peck ("To Kill a Mockingbird") and Jimmy Stewart ("It's a Wonderful Life", "Harvey"). These days, I like George Clooney if the story is good and the role fits him.

    In no particular order:

    Meryl Streep
    Jennifer Lawrence (A young Meryl Streep. Yes I do believe Jennifer is that talented)
    Scarlett Johannson (My lord she is gorgeous)
    Jessica Lange
    Frances McDormand

    Robert De Niro
    Phillip Seymour Hoffman (RIP)
    Brad Pitt (Underrated because he has a pretty face)
    Daniel Day Lewis
    Morgan Freeman
    John Malkovich
    Sam Rockwell
    Sean Penn
    Ralph Fiennes
    Jonah Hill (I think he's going to be another brilliant actor like Tom Hanks who went from comedy to drama. At least he has the potential).
    Javier Bardem

    A few others I can't think of now.

    Burt Lancaster, always and forever. My wish since I was younger was always to look just like him.

    Yes!!! There's no better hero than Burt Lancaster in John Frankenheimer's "The Train."

    Jeff Bridges is one of my favorites.

    His two best roles?


    "The Big Lebowski" (of course)


    "Fearless"

    Another contemporary actor who's one of my favorites is Clive Owen.

    Some highlights:


    "Children of Men"


    "Closer" - with the equally talented and lovely Natalie Portman

    Thinking about actresses...

    Ingrid Bergman in "Casablanca."



    Perfect in every way.

    The Big Lebowski is just a terrific movie. I think one of the greatest performances of John Goodman's career. "Shut the F#$% Up Donny, You're out of your element!" Never ceases to put me in stiches.

    And watching the subtle and often missed facial ticks and reactions to what is done and said by other characters in that movie is what made Hoffman such a brilliant actor.
