also: To Kill a Mockingbird, A Few Good Men, Witness for the Prosecution, something with Kirk Douglas and a officer's wife? A Town Without Pity (not a favorite)

I'm a big Edward Norton fan, ever since Primal Fear. He was also amazing in American History X. He even made Death to Smoochy tolerable!
He and Robert DeNiro are the two actors that will get me to see a movie just by being in it.
Spidey00, he is an excellent actor. Did you see Fight Club?
My favorite actor that I admire the most, purely because of his talent is Johnny Depp (although he's good looking too of course)
Every movie he's in, he handles his characters with such grace & is usually very belivable in whatever parts he plays, & I just love him.
The first movie I really noticed him in was "What's eating Gilbert Grape", a movie I absolutely love. Others of my favorite Johnny Depp movies include "Chocolat", "Pirates of the Caribbean" (he was damn good in that...) & "Once upon a time in Mexico" .... :-)
(I never did watch 21 Jump Street, altho it's got Johnny I dont think I missed much.... hehe
Other actors I admire (for their ACTING not their looks...altho most of these are good looking as well):
Viggo Mortensen (Of course!!!!! )
Wyndemere, have you ever watched Before Night Falls? He has two small roles which are quite different from any regular fair.
Without a doubt Mel Gibson has made more movies that I love than anyone else.
Braveheart....my 'best movie ever'.
No I havent seen that one, but thank you for the tips :-) I'll definitely check it out, maybe if I'm lucky they'll play it on hbo or something :-) (I like "quite different from any regular fair" kinda roles.... :-)) hehe )

My favorite is Cate Blanchett, without a doubt. She's just stunning. Love her!
She's followed extremely closely (as in photo-finish) by Jodie Foster. Fantastic actress.
My favorite genre is probably classics. I'm a sucker for an old Lauren Bacall film! The dialogue in old movies is just so much better than what comes out these days.
Nowadays I pretty much watch thriller/suspense.
I just had to quote all of this because it's exactly what I wanted to say.

He has such an amazing presence on screen. Terrific!
I also love Christian Bale, he has a really mysterious/freaky vibe about him, I want to see more of his work
I also have a huge respect for Jim Carrey, for his ability to make everything so funny. I'm not so sure about his dramatic performances, I haven't seen any of his movies that he wasn't acting like a goofball so I can't give an informed opinion on that.
On a totally shallow note, I always enjoy seeing anything Ryan Phillippe is acting in
Loved Cruel Intentions & Gosford Park
