Just thinking about it, half of the ones I like are British. Tom hardy, There Will Be Blood man etc...

I really like Jake Gyllenhaal, use to think he was just another pretty boy, but Nightcrawler, Zodiac and Southpaw he's become something of mancrush.

Oh, darn Indz is back, I remember his threads.

But my Top 5

1. Sean Connery

2. Robert De Niro / Morgan Freeman

3. Jack Nicholson

4. Michael Caine/Al Pacino

5. Marlon Brando

But there are so many good actors, shame most of them is over 40, it seems the upcoming generation of actors is not nearly as multi-talented.

And here I thought it was really obvious, exact same posting style, same words, similar threads.

I must have skipped many of his threads to avoid noticing the trend.

If you ask me, being over 40 and have a decade or more in the acting business means you probably have had a good chance to show what you are good for, and improve your acting skills from experience as well, so I don't think that is a negative.

True, also being over 40 means you most likely had actual theatre experience and come from a generation before SOme became a thing.

Well if people are putting Mel Gibson, Sean Connery and Arnold Schwarzenegger I can choose Russell Crow, Oliver Reed and Jean Claud Van Damme but Dustin Hoffman is the best. Also Brad Pitt.

Arnold Schwarzenegger technically is an American citizen now.

Yea, probably ad him as a fav as well. No range, can act worth shit, but he still commands the screen and is generally one of a kind.

On paper, he should have never become on of the biggest actors in the world.
