    Interesting! I think that 50 is too large of a number for a category like that. To me, if I'm willing to see the person in anything, they've got to be outstanding, and I think that including 50 on the list waters it down too much.

    For me personally, I'd add Vince Vaughn to the list. I'd also delete George Clooney. In fact, I'd avoid many movies because George Clooney was in them.

    If I were to abide by my own rule and make it a list of 10, from their list I'd take
    Kate Winslet
    Laura Linney
    Paul Giamiati
    Meryl Streep
    Phillip Seymour Hoffman
    Don Cheadle
    Julianne Moore
    Emma Thompson
    Steve Carell
    Neil Patrick-Harris

    For my onw personal list, Vaughn would replace Carell

    I'd add Sam Elliott to the list. I love that man's voice and he's had some good characters.

    And Gene Hackman, Sean Connory and Clint Eastwood. And what's her name that I can't ever remember that was the mom in LIttle Miss Sunshine and a whole bunch of other movies. She's got a series on HBO right now about multiple personality disorder. AHA: Toni Collette


    Oh and Hugh Grant. I think his English Comedy movies are great fun. I could go the rest of my life without having to see Meryl Streep or Kate Winslet in anything again.

    Re: Fifty Actors We'd See in Anything

    I must not be very in touch with what's hot when it comes to movies/actors because I actually had to scan that list more than once to find anybody I'd see. None of them are on my personal list of must watch although I would probably check out movies by...

    Paul Rudd
    George Clooney
    Tommy Lee Jones
    Clive Owen
    Colin Firth

    Wow, no Julia Roberts? She's still my absolute favorite and I will watch anything she does.

    So adding...

    Julia Roberts

    Paul Rudd made the list? That's unbelievable but awesome.

    Besides him, I guess I'd add Colin Firth, Johnny Depp, Alan Rickman, and Sarah Polley. A very odd list, IMO - Edie Falco? Really? And why would someone like Javier Bardem make the list? What's he done besides No Country For Old Men?

    Nathan Fillion is the only one on that list that is must-see for me. I like most of the others, but the movie has to look interesting too. So my list would be:

    Nathan Fillion
    Brendan Fraser
    John Cusack
    Harry Connick Jr.
    Jack Black (I've seen lots of stinkers to prove this one.)
    Colin Firth
    Liv Tyler

    That's all I can think of.
    One of these days I'll stop being sensitive. Until then, I'll continue to be devastated on a daily basis. Life breaks my heart.

    How is that unbelievable? Paul Rudd is god. Paul Rudd rules. Paul Rudd is not only funny as hell (his large coffee rant in Role Models is forcing me to buy the DVD on my next payday visit to HMV), but he is sooooo freakin' cute, even with the ever burgeoning girth. It would be unbelievable if this paragon of comic-actorly virtue weren't added to the list.

    Re: Fifty Actors We'd See in Anything

    If I was making my own list I'd add Brendan Fraser too. I just like looking at him. I'd also add Jodie Foster, though I haven't cared for her last couple of films.

    ETA: I watched 40-Year-Old Virgin multiple times just for Paul Rudd.

    I like Brendan Fraser too, but happened to see Monkeybones while on vacation. It may take a while to forgive him for that one.
