    Default List your 30 favorite actors/personalities.

    Here is my top 30 favorite actors:

    1.Paul Newman
    2.Robert DeNiro
    3.Tom Hanks
    4.Bruce Willis
    5.Clint Eastwood
    6.John Turturro
    7.Harvey Keitel
    8.Jack Nicholson
    9.Al Pacino
    10.Viggo Mortensen
    11.Russell Crowe
    12.Jimmy Stewart
    13.Jeff Daniels
    14.James Cagney
    15.Arnie
    16.Joaquin Phoenix
    17.Woody Harrelson
    18.Max Von Sydow
    19.Robert Duvall
    20.Lee Van Cleef
    21.Robert Redford
    22.Joseph Gordon-Levitt
    23.Morgan Freeman
    24.Harrison Ford
    25.Lawrence Fishburne
    26.Glenn Ford
    27.Lee Marvin
    28.Harry Dean Stanton
    29.Richard Widmark
    30.Jackie Gleason-If he would have had more film roles he would have got more credit. He is great in The Hustler and Requiem for a Heavyweight.

    Obviously guys like Arnie doesn't belong on a greatest list, but I feel like a greatest list doesn't have to be the same as a favorites list.

    Things that often win me over are: longevity, charisma and intensity. There isn't a lot of subtle guys there, but I'm not a subtle type of person.

    off the cuff, 30 is a bit extensive for me. I'd really have to analyze it.

    I'll leave you, in no specific order with

    1. Dustin Hoffman
    2. WC Fields
    3. Robert DeNiro
    4. Jim Carey
    5. Joe Pesci
    6. Abbot and Costello
    7. Sly Stallone
    8. Will Smith
    9. Al Pacino
    10. Joe Pantoliano
    11. Steve Buscemi

    Red, Apollo Creed = Carl Weathers.

    I don't know him from anything else than the first 2 Rocky's. Surely he did other things.

    Only men is it?

    Richard Burton.
    Peter O'Toole.
    Richard Harris.
    Oliver Reed.
    Daniel Craig.
    Al Pacino.
    Denzel Washington.
    Steve McQueen.


    Anyone of them will steal the scenery when the camera goes on. More than just talent and charisma. That special something that makes you "relate".... or at least wish you were them for just a moment.

    For the same reason.... (except the "be them for a moment"....."

    Irene Jacob.
    Linda Fiorentino.
    Lauren Bacall.
    Monica Belluci.
    Bridgette Bardot. (until she went fascist mental)
    Lorraine Bracco.
    Audrey Hepburn.
    Audrey Tatou.
    Gina Gershon.
    Paula Patton.
    Patricia Arquette.
    Juliette Binoche.
    Catherine McCormack.
    Eva Green.
    A man could lose himself in a country like this.

    Action Jackson, Predator, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, he did a voice on Spawn:Animation. Probably many others. But those are the roles, other than Rocky, that I've seen him in

    he was actually in the first four rocky movies. The first two he fought Rocky, losing in the second one. Then in #3 he trained Rocky for his rematch against Clubber Lang. Then in #4 he died in the ring facing Ivan Draggo.

    Oh, I've only seen little clips of the other Rocky's. What?...there was 6 of them total? Gawd, what a way to ruin a legacy.
    Yeah, the second one Rocky had to win, right? Only way it would make sense.
    The first Rocky....one of the best movies of the 70's, for me. And the soundtrack, of course. Unforgettable.

    and let's not forget that golf movie with Adam Sandler.
    That's right! Happy Gilmore. My boys and I love that movie.

    the first rocky was incredible. It deserved all the oscar nominations and awards it received. The subsequent movies were pretty good but they did tarnish the greatness of the first. The only real stinker in the series is #5. That was a real turd. The final installment, Rocky Balboa, was a damn fine movie though.
    Stay out of it, dude.
