Some good ones there - I would also include Robert de Niro, Robin Williams, Gene Hackman and Denzel Washington.
Hi, just pokin' my nose around and got here...wondering....you're all mentioning just male actors...what about the great women??
Meryl Streep, Susan Serandon, Nicole Kidman, Kate Winslet, Sigourney Weaver, Kate Hepburn, Bette Davis, Ingrid Bergman...and so on...the gals work real hard too!!
But thats cuz I'm assuming when you say "actors" you mean the generic gender. I'm also thinking Russell Crowe (mmmmm!)
DeNiro of course, Brando,Johnny Depp,Al Pacino, Denzel Washington , and even though he falls into the pretty boy category Brad Pitt is a pretty good actor.Russell Crowe and Anthony Hopkins round out my list
Christian Bale. Read about him doing the Machinist and then going straight to Batman Begins. He spends months at a time preparing for his roles, especially when he needs to lose or gain weight. Which is really the case in these two movies.
He was bone skinny for the Machinist and then bulked up big time for Batman Begins.
Others mentioned that I really like
There are plenty of actresses, but most of the time they aren't in the types of movies that I watch.
So many how can I pick.... I do TV --- Vincent D'onofrio is one of the greatest character actors --- he is leading as well. Kyra Segwick is great in everything I've seen her in. These are two of my personal favorites.
I used to love the early episodes of Criminal Intent, D'onofrio and the psych-thriller writers were a perfect fit. The only trouble with great series is they usually sell some of their substance to reach a larger crowd. I recently started watching a show called "Lie To Me."
The early episodes had a Holmesian brilliance, very sharp. Tim Roth, the protagonist, is also a very good actor. But like CI it started "dumbing down" in the continuing seasons. But the beginning episodes are still worth watching for Mystery/True Crime buffs.
Robert Downey Jr, Tom Hanks, Denzel Washington, Meryl Streep, Micheal Caine, Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino, and Johnny Depp.
Jack Nicholson, Samuel L Jackson, Morgan Freeman, Angelina Jole, Brad Pitt. All are great actors IMO
A lot of greats here (I'm a movie nut.) I saw a special on Biography channel about Morgan Freeman. Aside from being an amazing actor, he's lead a really interesting life.
James Spader, Viggo Mortensen, Kevin Costner, Michael Douglas, Robert Carlyle, Mickey Rourke, Jack Nicholson, Annette Bening, Susan Sarandon. I have high hopes for Robert Pattinson... with some big ifs. And I quite fancy Daniel Craig, Matt Damon, and Angelina Jolie in the right roles.

In my opinion, Denzel Washington is one of the greatest actors of our time and can own any role, a lot like Jack Nicolson and Kevin Spacey, a couple of my other favorites. From the desperate father in John Q, to the crooked cop in Training Day, to the alcoholic pilot in flight, he adapts. But to my...
