Title: 10 actors you are always glad to see
Post by: Allhallowsday on December 03, 2013, 09:11:31 PM
Here are ten actors, obviously all from the old school, that I am always interested in looking at.  I know there are others, but I went for a right-outta-my-ass list of those that came to mind, all of whom I think are so great they rise above sometimes lousy material: 
CLAUDE RAINS 
ERROL FLYNN
CLARK GABLE 
BARBARA STANWYCK
WILLIAM POWELL 
EDWARD G. ROBINSON 
JAMES CAGNEY 
BETTE DAVIS 
VIVIEN LEIGH
JOAN CRAWFORD

Boris Karloff
Jackie Chan
Bruce Lee
Clint Eastwood
Linnea Quigley (because I know nudity is coming  :smile:)
Barbara Steele
Mamie van Doren
Warren Oates
Orson Welles
John Cleese

Off the top of my head. I could probably come up with ten more who are equally charismatic but this is a decent start.

I could make a good list out of only actors who already appear on others' lists:

Vincent Price
Peter Lorre
Klaus Kinski
Steve Buscemi
Toshiro Mifune
Peter Sellers
John Cusak
Christoph Walz
Bette Davis
Edward G. Robinson

Interesting lists, which I almost entirely can relate to.  Some actors come across like old friends, or old acquaintances you admire but may not like, or... family. 

I'm going to try for 10 more, meaning I'm going to stop and watch if I can and hate it if I can't: 
FREDRIC MARCH 
KIM NOVAK
STEVE McQUEEN
WALTER MATTHAU
MARCELLO MASTROIANNI
JOHN WAYNE
VICTOR MATURE
FINLAY CURRIE
CLAIRE TREVOR
ALAN MOWBRAY
 

That was easy!

I'm both relatively young and bad with names; when I watch a movie, unless I know who the actor is, I just see them as the character they're playing. So I won't know many huge names of today or yesteryear but I do have a small pool of actors and actresses that will always get me to buy a ticket and enjoy the show.

In the order names come to me:

1. Liam Neeson - I'll never know why people, and wolves, keep messing with him, but as long as they do so I'll continue to watch. :thumbup:
2. Ron Pearlman - I like to believe that getting drunk with Ron would be awesome, he's always the highlight of whatever he's in.
3. Christian Bale - I just saw Out of the Furnace. That's about all you need to hear. He takes every role I've seen him in and totally owns it.
4. Creature Actors - Anybody know Doug Jones? Guys like him, they all share this one for me. :cheers:
5. Arron Eckhart - I watched The Core the other day and had forgotten he was in it. Made my day.
6. Sandra Bullock - When your first impression comes from Demolition Man, that sticks with you. :bouncegiggle:
7. Michelle Rodriguez - Much of the roles I've seen her in are the tough military type, which just make her all the more attractive.
8. Sigourney Weaver - If I didn't pay credit to her I would be dishonoring film.
9. Julianne Moore - I don't know what to put here, she's ascended beyond that point.
10. Vin Diesel - He's Vin-Fricking-Diesel.
