As far as middle aged actors go, honorable mentions to Hardy, Penn and JGL. Then you have the old guys like DDD, Bardem and such. One of my favorites Ed Harris and Viggo Mortensen, both need to do some more movies.

I'm confused. Penn is a middle aged actor and Bardem is an old guy? And who is DDD? Did you mean DDL?

And Cranston would have probably been my number 4. I haven't seen enough movies lately to knock guys down who haven't been in much lately, so Waltz was an easy choice for me.

Lol yea DDL. Guess Bardem falls into middle age category. I just have 3 tiers for actors, young ones in their 20s, 30-55s, and the old guys after 60+.

The best age group, perfect mix of experience and physical prowess to fully take over a role. They are the hybrids.

Agreed. I think he is a good actor with great film selection and dedication to the craft. But he seems to be lacking something. I like his films but apart from American Psycho and Batman I don't remember much about his performances (and I remember him for Batman, but not Bruce Wayne). Even in The Machinist and the Fighter I don't remember much.

Although I might watch The Fighter again now, I've only seen it once.

This is the reason Bale is not in my top 3. He may be one of my 3 favorite all time, but not current. His performance in the last 2 Batman movies are the worst of his career. I can't think of any great performances of his in the last couple of years outside of The Fighter (which was a great performance though).
