I'm a big Leo DiCaprio fan. Hated him after Titanic but his work since then as well as Whats Eating Gilbert Grape and Basketball Diaries (which I only saw well after Titanic) is impressive.

What's Eating Gilbert Grape
The Basketball Diaries
Catch Me If You Can
Gangs of New York
The Aviator
Blood Diamond
The Departed
Revolutionary Road

That's an impressive list of films. He has three films in the works that look great too: Shutter Island, The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt, and especially The Chancellor Manuscript.

Other favourites would be Daniel Day-Lewis, Sean Penn, Morgan Freeman, Tim Robbins

Tom Hanks is my all-time favourite actor.

Strangely enough I really like Sandra Bullock as an actress - although I don't have any especial like for any of her movies...although I enjoyed the lake house...

What's Eating Gilbert Grape is a fantastic movie - Johnny Depp and diCaprio both in their early days...diCaprio's character is a handicapped kid - and damn he plays it well.

Yea I studied it in English (5th form I think) and it is definitely a great movie. Reasonably slow-going but good.

As far as actresses go I think Kate Winslet is pretty awesome

Actors:

Morgan Freeman
Jack Nicholson
Robin Williams
John Travolta (his serious work, not the Grease/SNF/Hairspray stuff Laughing)
Johnny Depp
Ewan McGregor
Harrison Ford
Tom Hanks

Actresses:

Emma Watson Razz
Anne Hathaway


Don't really have many favourite actresses... they all seem to fade in and out a bit more than the men do, and most actresses are cringworthy, as they are picked for their looks rather than acting skill (see: Megan Fox... she couldn't act to save her life)

amazed no one has mentioned Johnny Depp (bar the offhand note), his role in PotC is just amazing and he played the perfect demon barber of fleet street as well.

Yeah, Depp's definitely up there. The way he can play such a diverse range of roles really makes me respect him. He actually acts on screen, as opposed to people such as, say, Tom Cruise, who always seem to play the same personality type

Haha, yeah, I don't like Rain Man for Cruise either... Dustin Hoffman is way better in that one.

Actually, Hoffman should be in my list of legend actors as well Razz

How has Samuel L. Jackson only been mentioned once (by me) in this?

He's such a brilliant actor, my favourite of all time, he plays his characters brilliantly.

You mean he plays the same character in different movies well.

He is an alright actor and has played some pretty good roles over the years (Pulp Fiction being his stand out) but there are a lot of other actors better then him.

Likewise. Best Actor in the business. How he didn't win Best Actor for The Departed I'll never know. Instead of The Departed, he got nominated for Blood Diamond and while that was good, The Departed was better.

He was also brilliant in The Basketball Diaries, and in What's Eating Gilbery Grape, he was hilarious. In The Basketball Diaries one of the classic lines he says to Swifty. 'You can't kick me off the team, cos I quit the team!". Gold!

Shutter Island looks very good too, I'll be seeing that.
