Funny thing, opinions... Some of the above posts leave me totally baffled. And - not a single one name beyond Hollywood?

Gerard Philipe
Marcello Mastroianni
Robert De Niro (younger version)
Al Pacino (ditto)
Jean-Paul Belmondo

Is somebody of TV allowed? Perhaps not as the best, but as personal favourite?
Tom Ward

What about actresses?
Monica Vitti
Claudia Cardinale
Debra Winger

TV Actress

From the UK - Amanda Tapping, Emilia Fox , Jemma Redgrave and Samantha Bond.
From America - Sarah Michelle Gellar.

Best TV actress ever Amanda Tapping.

Amanda Tapping was born in the UK and moved to Canada with her family when she was a child!

Suppose I should add at least one female, so possibly exchange Depp for Jodie Foster?

Spin says:
Ian: Pete Postlethwaite: Great actor; Just getting established when the Man above decided to deprive us of another worthy human. Johnny Depp: Crap. Why? Plays the same character in all his movies. Can't act, just "pretends" (with the help of the make-up artists)

ive got to say, ben affleck can do a good impression of a plank :)

Posted on 13 Dec 2011 02:54:28 GMT
1. Viggo Mortensen
2. Ed Harris
3. Russell Crowe (Not recently)
4. Samuel L. Jackson
5. Tom Hanks
6. Gary Oldman

(Not in that order, but those are my favourite, P.S Ever Since Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl, Johnnie Depp has been playing basically the exact same potrayal of characters usually wonky, sort of crazy characters with a heart of gold)

Least favourite actor's

Ryan Reynolds
Chris Evans
Shia Labeouf
Bruce Willis (has just became desperate for work)
Ben Affleck (although will forgive him for his direction of The Town)

LOL @ Spin - good call on Mr Depp, I know he's a bit (ahem!) ropey but I need a quirky actor and am a bit ashamed to admit I do actually like his films (The last Pirates film aside, shocking that was!). At least I didnt put Keanu Reeves in there!! lol

Robert Downey Jr
Jeff Bridges
Daniel Day-Lewis
Jack Nicholson
