In deference to Les, Who is the best actor on the planet? Any particular performance that really stands out?
I've always thought Meryl Streep did nice work. I hope I got the spelling right.
I think Daniel Day Lewis is the PRS of actors. lol The best of the best. What he does to submerge himself into a role is truely amazing. I think some actors like a Brad Pitt are really good depending on the situation. He was awesome in Moneyball, but maybe not so great in some others. Like Johnny Deep. I will say that I think Leonardo Dicaprio is awesome. i can't think of a bad movie he's been in.
"Just one more and then I promise, no more guitars honey!" - The phrase I say most to my wife
Anyone who has been in the business long enough has done some crappy movies, but I think Edward Norton is one of the better "young" actors. Robert Deniro and Robert Duvall are two of the better old school actors.
No particular order:
Different strokes... I thought There Will Be Blood was about as much fun as watching paint dry...
Billy Bob Thornton in anything - Amazing and criminally underrated IMO.
Tommy Lee Jones, especially in "Lonesome Dove" and "The Three Burials of Milq. Estrada"
Robert Duvall in anything - (Same as Billy Bob.)
Tom Hanks in anything - I don't know of a more versatile actor.
As for females, I'm at a loss. There must be some great ones out there, but I miss them somehow. The last great actress I remember is Cher.
'No... Look away... I'm hideous!' - Cosmo Kramer
Gary Oldman in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy was fantastic.
Not seen Lincoln yet so i'm looking forward to seeing DDL in that.
Sean Penn in Dead Man Walking
Barney Rubble in Night Shift
Billy Bob Thornton in Sling Blade did quite a performance.
Also, what comes to mind is Jack Nickolson and all the bunch in One Flew Over The Cookoo's Nest
"Freedom is nothing but a chance to be better." - Albert Camus
My wife. I was totally convinced the orgasm was real.
