Morgan Freeman. Besides the "____ Almighty" movies, everything he's been in has been gold. Just his presence as part of a cast tells you that the movie you are about to watch is worth the price of admission.
Kevin Spacey. He's basically in the same boat as Freeman, although I don't recall him ever doing comedy.
Bruce Willis/Samuel L. Jackson. Both can play near mindless action flicks to movies with deep plots fairly easily. They even work well together.
Denzel Washington. He's in Oscar-worthy movies year after year. Plus, he's always chewing gum. There's just something about him chewing gum in the middle of his movies that makes him seem more "real" than most. I know it sounds weird, but w/e...
Will Smith. He's made a lot of shit movies, but also some good ones. He became one of my favorites after "Pursuit of Happyness", which was just gold. He raised the standard of what I expect from his future roles from then on.
Christian Bale. Like Freeman and Spacey, I'm also starting to associate him with quality movies. He's been delivering ever since 2k.
I don't have any favorite actresses....>>
Kinda generic, but I'm a big Will Ferrel/Ben Stiller person. I see pretty much all their movies, and they all rule. And although he may not totally count, David Bowie IS an actor, and he IS amazing, so I guess he counts as well.
Natalie Portman -I saw her first in Luc Besson's movie Leon, then I watched her other movies as well and I like the way she acts...
Then the trio Harrison Ford, Ewan Mcgregor and Christopher Lee... They all played in Star Wars and you should watch the horror movies Christopher Lee played in ^^ I love them all ^^
Helen Bohnam Carter and Johnny Depp(not because he's handsome -_-') I like the movies they were in(mostly Tim Burton's movies ), and their weird acting skills and the chracters they chose to play.
For me, there's only Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder. It's a match made in Tim Burton's movies, how could it go wrong.
I mean, he's Han Solo and Indiana Jones, could he possibly be any cooler? (well, yes, if he was Chewbacca, but that's beside the point...) Also, The Fugitive was one of the first real action movies I saw, I know it's not really that action-y, but I saw it when I was ten or so, and it totally blew me away.
Don't forget PY, he was also Jack Ryan. -- Ichi
Moderator message by: PYOh yeah ^^ and in Air Force One, he had the same name as Jimi Hendrix

almost every movie of his i saw i loved it O_o he just get stuck in his role and become himself the hero
Harrison Ford xD i grew watching Indiana Jones what did you expect? he can be funny and serious and talkative and quiet and scary as well o.o
Michael Douglas..... he has this..... aura. i like his acting
Jackie Chan-Jim Carey i put those 2 together cause in their movies you love their "doings" more then their acting
can't think of any actresses right now... i have a few but i cannot remember their names right now ^^;
Christopher Walken - the man is a genius, nothing more needs to be said. He seems to play the same character (himself) in every movie, which is fantastic.
Steve Buscemi - whenever he makes a cameo in a bad movie, it's usually the funniest part. (wedding singer speech, etc...) Plus, he's been in some classics. Mr. Pink? Why do I have to be Mr. Pink?
Parker Posey - she was great in Dazed and Confused and Best in Show. An excellent actress, plus she's a beautiful woman.
Steven Segal - greatest action hero of his era (1988 - 1991). He did more for the "my family was murdered, now everyone dies" genre than most people give him credit for. Plus, his talent was awe-inspiring: Segal could kill a room full of guys with just a few fancy arm movements (all while standing in the same spot) and not get a speck of dirt on his ponytail. If you were lucky, he'd only break your arm in 3 places with a light tap, a bemused smirk and a "warning message" for the rest of your gang. Segal rules.
Maggie Gyllenhaal - she was good in Donnie Darko and Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. Plus she's going to be in the new batman movie "Dark Knight" that supposed to be really good. She seems a bit cooky too with some of her film choices.
Don Cheadle - first became a Cheadle fan after seeing the move Out of Sight, one of my favorites (if you've never seen the movie, put it on your list)
Michael Chiklis - a fellow masshole and currently the best cop on tv, Vic Mackey in The Sheild.
I'm going to agree with Ichi on Winona Ryder - sure she's had some troubles, but Winona's a saint compared to that Lohan chick. Plus, she's been in some great flicks (Beetleguise, Heathers...to name a few)
Jennifer Love-Hewitt - she made about a dozen of those "I know what'cha did, and I'm a gunna kill ya" movies, each better than the next. Also, her work in the garfield movies has set the standard for acting with CG animals. Breathtaking performances, in my opinion.
I'm going to get something to eat, but I may decide to add a few more.

Milla Jovovich - I love the kinds of characters she seems to play. I think shes one of the only actresses who could pull off fighting zombies with guns and doing adverts for loreal.
Uma Thurman - Her performances in Kill Bill and Pulp Fiction were amazing.
Elijah Wood/Leonardo Dicaprio - Pure eye candy
Denzel Washington - one of the greats
Matt Damon - starting to digg him; great potential
Bruce Willis - entertaining
Will Smith - has the most movies I like from one actor
Robert Deniro - one of the greats
my favourit actor is Ben Stiller and my favourite actress is Tara Reid (she is sooooo sexy )
Johnny Depp - He fits into so many different character molds and he does them WELL.
Alan Rickman - Snape. OMFG. Snape. HAWT <3 He was also awesome as the Arch-angel in Dogma.
Orlando Bloom - Handsome, genuine and like Depp, can fit a few different kinds of roles
Reese Witherspoon - Sweet Home Alabama was a wonderful movie! She did well in the first Legally Blonde as well. She's a sweetheart for sure =)
Gerard Butler - He was killer in 300, and I thought he was good in Phantom of the Opera as well.
Hugh Jackman - TOTAL omfg hotness <3 No matter what role, he takes it and kicks ass. Wolverine, Van Helsing, etc etc. Ultimate <3

I like Will Ferrel and that's about it~He's SO FUNNY!!=D
Don't you guys agree?=]
i have to say Alpacino, Kevin Spacey.
Donnie Yen, Sammo Hung,Bruce Lee.
johnny depp - ok, of course i think he's hot, but he's just so damn good at the off-beat, quirky charaters he plays. also johnny depp + tim burton = awesome
reese witherspoon - i'm not big on chick flicks in general, but i like her in them. she's the type of girl that both girls and guys like. my favorite role for her is her character in election.
christian bale - another hottie. finally we get a decent batman since michael keaton. he's also especially awesome in american psycho.
kevin spacey - great in serious movies and dark comedy (like american beauty). love him.
will ferrell - i just love him. my friends and i quote anchorman and old school like it's our job.
igotthegoods, the force is strong with you.
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.
