Bill I’s Note:
For a change from movie reviews, how about listing your favorite actors? My favorite male actors in no particular sequence:
Philip Seymour Hofman, Gary Oldman, Ciaran Hinds, Bill Nighy, George Clooney, Matt Damon, Jeremy Renner, Liam Neeson, Denzel Washington, Benecio Del Toro, Mark Wahlberg, Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamotti, Harvey Keitel, Sacha Baron Cohen, Robert Downey Jr., Jonah Hill, Kenneth Branagh
My favorite female actors:
Jessica Chastain, Emily Blunt, Anne Hathaway, Rachel Weisz, Salma Hayek, Penelope Cruz, Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis, Charlize Theron, Rooney Mara, Michelle Williams, Bryce Dallas Howard
I’m sure I left out some, and realize it’s obvious there are terrific actors not on this list such as Meryl Streep and Dustin Hofman, but I was going from who I have seen in the recent year or two and loved.
Please post your favorites in the comments below…
Bill C’s List
I like this idea for a topic and for the most part I like Bill’s list with a few exceptions. Instead of putting my entire list I’ll just list some additions and any I’d leave out. I know I’m forgetting some. I also tried to keep to the last couple of years. and these are not in any order
Actors: Matthew McConaughy, Marc Duplass, Seth Rogen, Michael Fassbender, Edward Norton, Steve Buscemi, Sean Penn, Leonardo DiCaprio, James Franco, Brendan Gleeson, Jeff Bridges, Josh Brolin. Mark Wahlberg and Ciraran Hines wouldn’t make my list.
Actresses: Emma Stone, Frances MocDormand, Greta Gerwig, Tilda Swinton, Rachel McAdam, Amy Adams. I don’t think Bryce Dallas Howard would make my list
