Dude, you're listing Keanu Reeves fer cryin' out loud. Rowan Atkinson is a comedy genius! I take it by that comment that you've never seen Black Adder or the Mr. Bean tv series.

It says Favorite/Best so I put some of both.

OB1
yeah ok

Darunia
OB1 seyz: Dude, you're listing Keanu Reeves fer cryin' out loud. Rowan Atkinson is a comedy genius! I take it by that comment that you've never seen Black Adder or the Mr. Bean tv series.


Yea...suck that Fittisize.

Fittisize
Well it is favourites, and despite what people say, Reeves is a great actor, and was so in Matrix series(and Replacements, and I put it up there because it is my second favourite football movie behind Any Given Sunday). Er, more so that Mr. Bean was running around with a Christmas turkey over his head anyways...(in drama last year we watched Mr. Bean a lot when we were taking mime).

OB1
Keanu Reeves is a terrible actor. Now he's cool and all in real life and I'm sure he's a nice guy, but he can't do the acting thing at all. Hell he can barely even do the action thing.

Fittisize
Well I can't think of anybody better to play Neo in The Matrix, my favourite movie series, so that's what makes him great.

PLUS, he was a goalie for a major junior team in Ottawa. No small feat by any means (about 1 or 2% of hockey players growing up will be good enough to play major junior). If he can do that and be one of the biggest names in Hollywood, then of course he'll be my favourite. :)

Darunia
:rolleyes:

He couldn't act his way out of a bag. He was lackluster at best in the Matrix II. He's only good for the part because he's kind of a shady, quiet guy by natural disposition.

A Black Falcon
Both Mr. Bean (NOT the movie) and Blackadder are very, very funny...

OB1
Keanu seems like a very nice person in real life, though.

ACTORS:
1. JACK NICHOLSON
2. Morgan Freeman
3. Al Pacino[/bq]

ACTRESSES:
[b]1. HELEN HUNT
2. Linda Hamilton
3. Molly Ringwald

OB1
Oh yeah, I forgot about those three.

Darunia
Special props to Tim Curry too...I used to hate him, but I've come to enjoy seeing him in movies. He's never had any grand dramatic roles, but those he's had (in Home Alone 2, Muppet Treasure Island, Scary Movie 2, It...) have all been well enough. And he's arrogant, weird voice and personality...love it.

A Black Falcon
Wasn't he in the game Gabriel Knight 2?

Darunia
Probably, he's done a lot of low-brow, low-income projects too. Like that lame Titanic movie that came out coincidentally after James Cameron's.

Sacred Jellybean
Rooney: Drew Barrymore wasn't in Sleepy Hollow, that was Christina Ricci.

He's only good for the part because he's kind of a shady, quiet guy by natural disposition.

Indubidably.

Oh, and Tim Curry played the excellent role as Dr. Frank-N-Furter in the Rocky Horror Picture Show, thereby invariably rendering him an awesome actor.

Great Rumbler
I just remembered someone!! I can't believe no one has listed him yet!! Johnny Depp!! Ed Wood, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Sleepy Hollow, Pirates of the Carribean, and Edward Scissorhands!! I can't believe we forgot!!

A Black Falcon
He was Gabriel Knight, and it was a FMV adventure game... :)

Sacred Jellybean
I wanna see Ed Wood. Unfortunately, none of the local video stores carry it. :(

Great Rumbler
I rented it before, very funny movie.

At the premier of Plan 9 From Outer Space:

Ed Wood: This is the movie I'm going to be remembered for!

Darunia
Super-special props to Johnny Depp, especially for his amazing performance in 'Pirates'!!

Dark Lord Neo
One of my favorite actors is
Keifer Sutherland
Now Ten Cookies goes to whoever can tell me who his grandfather on his mothers side was and what he is most famouse for.

I also like Patrick Stewart, Arnold Scwartneggarssasdfasdfsdfasdfsdfsdfasdger(sp?), William Shatner, Martin Sheen
