Why you ****ing have to put the race into this. Best black actors, that's enough. That is ****ing fare.


But nooo, a guy of the types of you has to put ****ing "alive" there. Great going, I'm amazed.

Freeman over Whitaker? I may be biased because Forest is one of my favorite actors right now overall so I'd put him at #1 anyway, but even an unbiased observer wouldn't put Morgan Freeman at #1, especially not over Whitaker.

Out of these guys, Freeman, Washington, Cheadle, Whitaker, Glover, Fishburne and Jackson, I say Whitaker and Fishborne are the only two who has any kind of acting range.

I'd add Cheadle and Elba to that, but yeah I mostly agree.

Agreed

I question Freeman's range, he seems to play similar characters all the time.
