-Starwars

-Blade Runner (hate the movie though...)
-Fugitive
-Air Force One

After 2000 he hasnt done much though.

I agree that he does not belong with the names aformentioned..

I just meant to state that even if he is a stellar actor.. that does not mean that people actually know who he is...

I loved 'The Cooler' with Bello.. but most people are not even aware that the film exist...



And I do believe that the JJ film that you are mentioning is 'The Last Dragon'

he is a contradiction to me.. for I believe that he is both underated and overated by people...

Its all in perspective, I guess...

Eastwood? Perhaps as just an actor, but along with his producing and directing of films it is just about right. A close race might be against Pacino.

Certainly actor. What's he played other that that mean *******? If there's a role let me know, seriously, maybe some stuff when he was in in his prime?

I consider him more of a pompous ******* in his recurring roles as the Man With No Name.

Some of the listed actors aren't that bad (not worst actor ever territory). Plus, it depends on the movie. Ben Affleck hasn't been bad in every movie. Matthew McConaughey? He was good in Dazed and Confused, A Time to Kill, and he was the only thing that didn't suck about The Return of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. I haven't seen his crappy chickflicks, though.

When I think worst ever, I'm thinking Sofia Coppola in The Godfather: Part III territory. I'm talking sh!t that makes Paul Walker's wooden acting look oscar-worthy. Hell, go watch Plan 9 from Outer Space and then tell me that Ben Affleck should be labeled as the worst actor ever. There's been plenty of people far worse than Ben Affleck. Now, if you're talking about well known actors, then that's a different story.

One of the great tragedies of modern times

And yes, Ben Affleck has been bad in every movie he's ever been in. How do you mess up/overdo a Boston accent when you grew up there?

Ben Affleck was fine in Boiler Room and Dazed and Confused (he played a douchebag well).
