Guess I'd have to second Ken. My favorites also were Jimmy and Katherine.

I have 2 favourite actors, Johnny Depp and Leonardo di Caprio, I thought they both did an amazing job in "What's Eating Gilbert Grape".
Actress..probably Meryl Streep, she is so believable in every character she plays...

I heard today 'some' are questioning inducting Ernest Borgnine into Hall of Fame or whatever lifetime achievement he is up for because ....

He made some disparaging remark about Brokeback Mountain when it came out.

Now that is absolutely going out of the way to be PC.
That's where this country is.

Bobby G, I agree there are to many great older actors. I hate to say it but I am not that impressed with many of the current group. I think many of the older actors were trained on the stage, and did not require a chase scene or other action to make the movie work. Just my opinion. Mike

Denzel Washington & Angelina Joline

Al Pacino & the actress that has won 2 oscars that play the female boxer in the Clint Eastwood movie with Morgan Freeman (sorry it slips my feeble mind at the moment but she is really good)

An often overlooked movie talent was Jackie Gleason. He really was an outstanding actor, and he didn't often rehearse his parts. If you've never seen "Solider In The Rain", do yourselves a favor and watch it if it happens to show up on your TV schedule. It's an enjoyable 90 minute film which is often called "something different". It also has McQueen and some other well known faces.

There are many fine actresses and actors but ones that stand out for me are Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts, Jimmy Stewart and Tom Hanks.
