Default My 30 favorite actors.

This in no way is a list ranking the best actors. It is simply my personal favorite actors. I also limited myself to one dead actor. That was probably the hardest aspect about making this list, because I did not choose Marlon Brando, which I know I'll catch heat for.

[01] Robert De Niro
[02] Jack Nicholson
[03] Al Pacino
[04] Clint Eastwood
[05] Gene Hackman
[06] Gary Oldman
[07] Nicholas Cage
[08] Daniel Day-Lewis
[09] Jim Carrey
[10] Phillip Seymour-Hoffman
[11] John Cazale
[12] Bill Murray
[13] Sean Penn
[14] Robin Williams
[15] Leonardo DiCaprio

[16] Casey Affleck
[17] Robert Downey Jr.
[18] William Hurt
[19] Steve Buscemi
[20] Sam Rockwell
[21] Jeff Daniels
[22] Sylvester Stallone
[23] Peter Sarsgaard
[24] Vince Vaughn
[26] Nick Nolte
[27] Jake Gyllenhaal
[28] Ben Foster
[29] Simon Pegg
[30] Ryan Gosling

I also realize that for some reason, I do not have any black actors on this list, and that has absolutely nothing to do with race. If I had to choose one or two that I would add, they would be Denzel and Don Cheadle. The reason they are not on my list is because Denzel has been disappointing me lately, and I haven't seen enough of Don Cheadle.

Who do you think should have made the list?

Actually, I can't even believe I forgot Keitel.

I don't care for Giamatti, though that doesn't mean I don't like him as an actor. I do not like Benicio, or Depp. I already addressed Denzel in my original post.

Why didn't you include dead actors? Would make it too difficult?
