eek! unfortunatly i looked at pictures of G.Oldman in batman before i went to watch it but still he didnt look reconiseable at all

Well, i agree with my friend mr parker in almost all the things that he posted. Alec Guiness and Gary Oldman are, absolutely, two of the greatest actors of any generation or any time because they are human chamaleons, they could play any role in any movie. People like John Hurt should be in those lists because he is in the same chamaleon range that guiness or oldman.

Also, people like Marlon Brando should be in those lists too. He was one of the greatest actors ever.

About the Laurence Olivier issue. True, he was named in his time the best actor of all time, but that was on stage, in theatre, not in cinema. In cinema , he was very good in movies like spartacus, rebecca, sleuth , marathon man or his shakespeare adaptations, but never nearly as good as he was in theatre.

Johnny Depp is my all time favourite actor as well! I can't believe there are only two mentions of him! I think he's fantastic, the way that he can change from one role to the other rather than seeming to be the same character in a different film.

Bogart. Butt ugly guy who probably weighed 150lbs soaking wet. But on the screen he was totally believable as either suave ladys man or a two fisted tough guy. Bogart in a trenchcoat is an iconic image that'll last forever.

I think a better question would be: who is your personal favourite actor? But I'll try my best.

There are the obvious four screen legends: Humphrey Bogart, Marlon Brando, James Dean and Gregory Peck.

Then later icons like Robert De Niro (one of the most devoted actors in history), Al Pacino, Robert Duvall, Jack Nicholson, John Malkovich to name a few.

And even newer greats from the past ten years, Nicholas Cage, Johnny Depp, Christian Bale, Edward Norton and Ewan McGregor.

But as a wise man once said: "I would not think of quarreling with your interpretation nor offering any other, as I have found it always the best policy to allow the film to speak for itself."

I really think Brad Pitt is an amazing actor. He's played an autistic, serial killing thug, mythical warrior, police detective, farmer, con man you name it, and came up aces on the parts given to him. He is my all time favorite actor.

I'm going with Jack Nicholson. His portrayal of madness in Cuckoo's Nest and The Shining are perfect, and the stern bluntness of his character in A Few Good Men set new standards for military acting. He is brilliant in everything he's ever done, even his random cameo appearance in the rock opera Tommy.

Maybe not the best, but certainly one of them, and my personal favourite.

I just watched As good as it gets and Jack Nicholson is now in my top 3. he is an Amazing Actor, but anyone who has won a best actor Oscar must be really good, just like Tom Hank, Marlon Brando, Dustin Hoffman and Daniel Day-Lewis. they are all amazing actors.

I really like Brad Pitt as an actor, I am surprised he has never won an Oscar.

There are simply too many to really even make a qualitive and reasonable list in my mind. You have the obvious ones like Ford, Pacino, De Niro, Hoffman of the New Hollywood era, the method school of actors like Brando and James Dean, some of the Shakespearean actors like Olivier, Holm and although perhaps a tad arguable, Alan Rickman. Then you have the classics like John Wayne, Cagney, Archibald Leach and Jimmy Stewart. Bloody Hell: Heston (although a certified anus), Eastwood, Jack Lemmon. Forget that. There are many.

In the recent decades you have people like Gary Oldman coming into their prime, Christian Bale, Tom Cruise (Scientology aside he is an amazing actor), Daniel Day-Lewis et cetera et cetera.

Thing is, practically everyone anyone has mentioned (with notable exceptions. Mr.Depp, I'm looking in your direction) would bring something great to a role that in script-form was wafer thin.

What about actresses you sexist pigs?
