Hopefully this topic isn't closed, but actors are one of the 3 important things for every successful movie or tv show.
My favorite actor: Johnny Depp
Why?: Has some of the most diverse roles in movies and plays them all amazingly. Still is down-to-earth after all his fame, and is getting better and better as time goes on.
Honourable Mentions: Coming soon...
Carnal Malefactor
I know it's a trite answer, but Tom Hanks.
Ronaldo Rodregez
Will Farrel. The man makes a mean laugh-sandwhich.

Johnny Depp (but i didn't like him that much in CF movie)

NightMistress
Well, I guess I'll jump in line myself and say Johnny Depp. I have been a fan of his every since I was a kid. He always goes for the different roles and he does them so well. From Edward Scissorhands to Captain Jack Sparrow to Willy Wonka. This is truly his calling and I admire him a whole lot for it. Of course, he is a nice piece of eye candy to boot, but it really does go beyond that. He has given a lot to this business and is still giving which I find awesome. He is influencing these younger actors too. I remember Orlando Bloom talking about how Johnny's acting forced him to bring more out of himself on the set. That tells me he's doing something right. If Johnny stopped acting now, you could look at his list of movies and go "man, what a hell of a career!"

Another actor I admire is Leonardo DiCaprio. After "What's Eating Gilbert Grape" (another movie Johnny was in a did a great job), I still have not seen someone capable of being SO believable as a person with downs syndrome.
Saturn Stars
I agree my favourite actor is Johnny Depp by far, he is so creative an mysterious and as you said nightmistress always goes for different roles and does a great interpretation of role that have been done.

Edward Sicssor hands was just beautiful

I'm glad so many people love Mr. Depp.

I had an urge to burn every copy of Sleepless in Seattle after seeing it. I don't think even chicks like that movie. It reminded me of the later You've Got Mail, but worse.

I like Depp like so many others, but I am not sure if I even have a favorite actor/actress. I just don't... watch movies that often to be honest.
Carnal Malefactor
Ahem... Those two movies, plus Terminal notwithstanding, Hanks is a great actor with a great body of work!
Riza Babe
OMG!! Tom hanks!!!

I love the movie
-Cast away
-You got mail
-Green mile
-The terminal
-Forest Gump

lol But Johnny Depp Owns!!! biggrin.gif I love Pirate of the Carribean! biggrin.gif
Kyros
Depp is the coolest evar d00d. He's the man. I wanna see what he does in the next two pirates of the caribbean movies. They better make good sequels, unlike Star Wars I-III.

...and by the way Riza Babe, what about Forest Gump?!
Riza Babe
Oh yeah!!! That movie owned too!!!
Smoke Alchemist
Kate winslett and Johnny Depp.
Ronaldo Rodregez
I change mine to Sam Waterson. No reason needed.
caerulcis
seems like Johnny Depp is the most popular so far. my favorite actor is John Travolta. he played in some of my favorite movies (Pulp Fiction, Broken Arrow and Face/Off). not really any other reason. he's just da man.
candymakeudandy
Will Smith ftw!! cus he's mad funny smile.gif
Popogeejo
Don't really have a fav but Samuel L Jackson kicks mighty ammounts of ass.
Zarpia
Karl Urban >3
Vash_the_Gunslinger
Tom Hanks has a lot of great movies under his belt. I think his the actor that deserves $20 million per film.
hanzo
Ben Stiller... He can be a good main character and a good villain laugh.gif
Emerald Alchemist
Adam Sandler... Soooo funny. biggrin.gif
Sin Of Envy
Tom Hanks, thanks to him Terminal is one of my favorite movies...
Galorfilinde
I'd have to say Johnny Depp. He's played so many different characters, and made every single one convincing, and real. From the world's greatest lover to a weird chocolateer, a caring brother to a corrupt cia agent, he has it all!
Fayth Prophecy
I have a lot of favorite actor's, including Johnny Depp, Tom Cruise, Keanu Reeves, George Clooney, Orlando Bloom, Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, Steve Burton, David Boraneaz, and John Travolta.

Johnny due to the character makeup that he wears. You can hardly tell it's him. I mean, look at Edward Scissorhands and then look at Pirates of the Carribean. The makeup is different, true, but you would really have to listen to him to know that it's the same person.
Tom, just cuz. He's a great actor.
Keanu. I've loved him since I saw him in Speed. Then in the Matrix, I loved him more. He's great for these action movies.
George, on the other hand is my favoritist actor ever. -Favoritist is my word of the day.- In Dusk Til Dawn, he played a great role. Syriana was a bit better. I just love that he's able to mold into any role.
Orlando Bloom. I loved him more as Legolas than that of Will Turner, but he's still a great actor.
Bruce Lee will forever be one of the greatest action movie stars ever, along with Jackie Chan.
Steve Burton is a great voice for Cloud Strife, but how many of you actually knew that Steve here is actually a real actor? Yep. He's on one of my mother's soap operas, and plays a former mobster.
David Boreanaz. I love the recent show he's in. Bones is a great show, and he did a splendid job with Angel, and voicing Leon (Squall) on KH 1.
John Travolta was a good actor in Grease and Saturday Night Fever. Other than that, I don't really care.

Sorry if I freak a lot of you out by going into deep detail about Johnny Depp and such. I'm a Theatre student in High School, so I'm pretty much getting into the details^^
55th_animalalchemist
I have more than one I think first on the list is Christopher Reeves he played very well Superman and Clark Kent , he made me laugh and still make me have fun thanks to the Clark character.And because since I have memory he is my favorite actor.

Them, Tom Hanks (I like all the movies he is in), Clint Eastwood in the italian westerns and that glare , Sean Penn for Mistyc River, and Jason Wiles he as Maurice"Bosco" Boscorelli on Third Watch (NBC) Bosco in a minute to another made you laugh ,cry, wants to kill him. Jason was very good playing that chacarter.

GGGGGAAAHHHH! You can't beat that awesome Mattew Broderick!!! LOVE HIM! I liked his most recent "The Producers". let me tell you if you are in the mood for a dirty movie (and funny) Watch that!!! wub.gif

trecia
johnny depp is the best. you could say he's - very flexible... laugh.gif and he usually takes on the weirdest roles....
i also like frankie muniz, tom cruise, rowan atkinson from mr.bean, adan sandler, marlon wayans from white chicks.... laugh.gif
ScarMySoul
I quite like David Duchovny.

He was one of the reasons I was addicted to The X-files.
Vampire Alchemist
Johnny Depp is sweet.
Master Kakashi
Definately Johnny Depp and Orlando bloom.
Kiara Nightley to.
Pirates of the Carribean made sure of that.
Popogeejo
Keira can't act to save her nicely curved ass. All she is is eye candy (low fat candy ofcourse). Orlando is pretty much the same but without the ass refrence.
You just stick him and Keira in a cotume and let a more charismatic person carry the film.

Oddly enough... I agree with that analysis...

Hmm... As far as voice actor, i'd have to say Quinton Flynn (Reno from AC and Axel from KH2 incase anyone is wondering), but as far as favorite actor-actor... Maybe Dennis Quaid in Dragonheart...

I couldn't have said this better myself... of ALL the actors, well... the ones that are half-way decent anyway, Johnny over-shadows EVERY single one of them. I completely agree with what the original poster said about this actor.
DantElric

David Spade makes me laugh. blink.gif Or...maybe just his voice.
Metal-Sol

Carnal Malefactor
It's official. Women value looks over talent.
Popogeejo
Johnny Depp is an okay actor. Best actor in those Pirate films.
He's not untalented, he just lacks range.
Carnal Malefactor
I have no problem with Depp as an actor. I just think it's amusing that he's almost a unanimous choice in this poll among women.

Funny how noone answers Mel Gibson anymore, even though he's a tremendous actor... batshit insane, sure, but a titan on screen.

But if they're going by looks wouldn't Jude Law, Orlando "should only played Legolas then died" Bloom or some other knob like that be winning?
