    it makes me wonder too that some director prefers a certain actor/actress for the movies he makes. for instance, tim burton and johnny depp, di caprio and scorcese.
    and i also think that chris bale is awesome in the machinist. he dropped 40 pounds or something for that movie.
    thanks! you have fine taste, sir

    yeah, i think i read that he got down to 125 lbs for the machinist and then had to bulk up to 225 lbs for batman begins in just a few months. that's some crazy dedication

    as for the director/actor pairings, you're right. it only works, though, if the actor is really right for the part in that director's movie. it's a good thing that johnny depp is so versatile and fits so well into tim burton's style. i like the scorcese/di caprio pair as well.....the departed was just

    Re: Who are your favorite actors/actresses?

    edward norton- this man is simply brilliant and a consummate professional...loved him in american history x and fight club.

    kevin spacey- same for this guy...lester burnham is my personal hero...the usual suspects was also made of win.

    leo dicaprio- also brilliant...family ties notwithstanding the basketball diaries stands out.

    depp- his taste in roles is impeccable...wasn't a big fan of the pirates sequels, though.

    matt damon- he's come along way...loved him as jason bourne and good will hunting is a personal favorite

    christian bale- i've watched american psycho so many times my dvd melted...also loved him in the prestige (both very good books, btw)

    brad pitt- some of his roles are questionable, IMO but his acting chops are indisputable...like norton, he was lights out in fight club...also liked him in snatch

    guy pearce- loved him in both memento and l.a. confidential...very intense actor.

    denzel- another very intense actor...loved him in glory and training day...i feel that he is typecasted sometimes though and for a while there it was like he made a good movie and then a bad one in a viscious cycle

    nathan fillion- absolutely brilliant in waitress and who doesn't love captain mal reynolds...slither was very underrated, IMO

    scarlett johansson- she's absolutely gorgeous ...loved her in ghost world, but there are some roles i haven't cared for; most notably romantic comedies

    natalie portman- she's awesome and also hawt...garden state is a personal fave, and also closer and the professional

    ashley judd- i'm in love with her...that's all.

    charlize theron- monster cemented her name as an awesome actress...

    helena bonham carter- she's very intense and really puts all of herself into her roles, IMO...she was excellent in fight club.

    uma thurman- some questionable roles but very good when cast correctly...kill bill and pulp fiction obviously

    i could go on and on, but these are the folk that stand out to me right now.
    in a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act- george orwell

    Definitely Jim Carrey, Jack Black, and Will Smith. Those guys are hilarious! But when they have acts in which they have to be serious, they do a marvelous job as well.

    Re: Who are your favorite actors/actresses?

    Gary Oldman - watched one movie with him and from that one movie he became my favorite actor.What he did in Leon was amazing,why didnt the academy give him an Oscar,I dont know,I loved him in Batman Begins and The Dark Knight and also the Potter series,he was the reason why I started watch Potter and I loved it,I wanna watch more movies with him,but I dont have the time,Book of Eli should be great.The problem with him that he appears in stupid movies.

    Johnny Depp - hes role in Pirates was amazing,I could watch Captain Jack Sparrow 24/7 in every movie he does something different,not like other actors who are doing the same very movie.

    Brad Pitt - Tyler Durden,what he did with that guy was amazing,I can watch Tyler like Sparrow,every little detail was amazing,Oscar worthy,fuck the academy for this.Mickey from Snatch. Chad from Burn After Reading,I love when he plays an idiot,he really is funny.Lt. Aldo Raine I AM FREAKING PISSED he did not get an Oscar nomination,every single detail of Aldo was amazing and Benjamin Button,I could go on..

    Robert Downey Jr. - first movie I saw with him was Iron Man and I really was surprised how I never heard of him before,he acted perfectly,of course in the comic books Tony is taller,but no matter,Robert did a fantastic job,then I watched Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and I cried at how funny that was,then the Soloist,Sherlock Holmes and I cant wait for IRON MAN 2!

    there are more actors,cant believe I added Jack Chan,Jet Li and Anthony Andersen in my previous list DD

    Re: Who are your favorite actors/actresses?

    My favorite actor of all time would have to be Hayden Christenson. His portrayal of Anakin Skywalker was deep and meaningful, and putting him in the final scene of "Return of the Jedi" instead of the old guy was a brilliant move....

    Sarcasm aside, my favorite actors are:
    Patrick Stewart for his portrayal of Scrooge (I was never a fan of TNG)
    Avery Brooks for his performance in DS9 and American History X
    Zach Braff because he has the slightly nerdy guy down pat.
    Tom Baker (who doesn't like the 4th Doctor?)
    David Tennant, who brought a unique spin to the Doctor, unlike other who just coasted on the character's grandness.

    For actresses:
    Keira Knightley, because she was great in Pride and Prejudice
    Winona Ryder, because Girl, Interrupted was excellent.
    Angelina Jolie, due to her....you know... and the fact that she really commits to her performance.
    Lauren Graham, because her portrayal of "Lorelai Gilmore" is hilarious.

    I don't have any favorite actors or actresses but I have to say Christian Bale is one damn great actor. He is able to mic-mic many English-speaking accent . Even if his movie isn't a great, he's usually great in it.

    I used to love Macaulay Caulkins in Home Alone.

    Johnny Depp is like a true legend, starting with Edward Scissorshand, POTC, Charlie & the Chocolate Factory.. he always play eccentric characters.. ^^

    Kiera Knightley has tis regal. 18th century look which I really like, especially in Pride n Prejudice.

    I also like Anne Hathaway in her disney roles, Devil Wear Prada & Becoming Jane.

    Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, Cate Blanchet: because they can do different roles.
    Kate Beckinsale: Underworld I & II (that's a reason enough).
    Sean Connery, Ed Harris, Patrick Stewart: they are a Category on their own.

    Re: Who are your favorite actors/actresses?

    Anthony Hopkins when not taking an easy paycheck (Bad Company) is a great actor. Shadowlands, The Elephant Man, Howard's End, The Remains Of The Day. All superlative.

    Robert De Niro- forget most of his lame ass performances of the last 20 years ( a few films like Casino apart) and focus us on a multitude of performances. Mean Streets, Taxi Driver, Godfather Part II, Raging Bull. Brilliant.
