    I'll give it a shot, in no particular order, and I'm excluding Deniro and Pacino, too easy there. I'm also sure I'm forgetting a bunch of my favorites.

    Robert Duval, Daniel Day Lewis, Ed Norton Jr, Denzel Washington, Tom Hanks, Clint Eastwood, Sean Connery, John Candy, Kevin Spacey, Nicholas Cage.


    Honorable mentions to Joe Pesci, Morgan Freeman, Phillip Seymour Hoffman.

    I thought of him this morning, bad oversight on my part. I bet there's 10-20 others that I'm forgetting too.

    I think he's an excellent actor. I'm rarely disappointed in his performances, nor do I miss any of his movies.

    Well, there are a lot of very good actors out there. It's like listing 10 hot babes we'd like to poke. The list would be 100 strong in a matter of seconds. Who are the best actors, say a top 3, in order, or maybe a top 5, is more to the point.

    Yeah I actually wanted to dislike him. You know the upcoming actor, who's he think he is? But, he was good in Titanic, The Departed and excellent in The Aviator. I'm looking forward to Body of Lies.
