Favourite actors

24 posts in this topic

The obvious usual suspects spring to mind like de Niro, pacino, freeman, Eastwood etc, but for me my favourite actor is nicolas cage. Although he's been in some right stinkers lately you can't beat some crazy, over the top and outrageous cage action, films like "vampires kiss", "bringing out the dead", "bad lieutenant: new Orleans port of call" and "matchstick men" are classic OTT cage. Just wish he'd stop taking parts in rubbish films and stick to the tried and tested.

I like Nicolas Cage as well, but for me he has only one style of acting, when it suits the role it works very well, but when it doesn't it stinks.

John Cusack.

Harvey Keitel - I always thought he was a little one-dimensional, a little like De Niro in respect of the tough guy role. But over the past few years, he has done quite a few comedic roles.

Ed Harris. Almost always good, even in films that stink the place out.

Film-acting much easier than tv-acting, which is much easier than stage-acting. Commonly, film-actors are cast for looks and box-office attraction as much as for their intrinsic talent.

 

Unfortunately, I don't get to the theatre as much as I'd like, but my favourite tv actors are Alun Armstrong and Bill Patterson. My favourite film actors (actresses) are Nathalie Baye and Penelope Cruz.

 

My most promising newcomer choices would be John Bradley and Emelia Clark, both from Game of Thrones.

Harvey keitel is another one of my favourite actors, like you say he plays the tough guy and seedy roles very well. As for De Niro checkout "midnight run" from the late 80's, pure comedy gold.

'Midnight Run' is superb. Charles Grodin is very good in it too.

Yep, nobody does wild, OTT and manic like cage. As ive said he should stick to the tried and tested because he can't act the straight role, but saying that he was superb in "leaving las Vegas."

The chemistry between de Niro and grodin is pure comedy gold and makes the film the big hit that it is.

The old bloke who used to play Woolpack regular 'Walter' was a legend in Emmerdale Farm. His method acting of nodding to order a pint was Shakespeare-esque. If only he had got an equity card, surely he would be mentioned in the same hushed tones as Larry

Ron Perlman. He's done some interesting films over the years as well as the more mainstream stuff.

He's very good in the Sons of Anarchy TV series.
