Wasn't sure whether to put this in TV, good movies, or what so I just put it here. In no particular order, for different reasons. Also this thread doesn't seem to exist! If it does I can't find it

- Mark Heap (seems to give every character his very best, good at comedy and non-comedy)
- James Gandolfini (feel like he always had consistently good performances)
- Mark Margolis (often this guy upstages the main actor with his 5 minute appearances, love it)
- Leonardo DiCaprio (not sure if it's him or his choice of films but I like his work)
- Philip Seymour Hoffman (synechdoche, new york is probably one of the best films I've ever seen, but apart from that this guy ruled)
- Olivia Colman (very good at comedy and non-comedy, hope she's loaded now)
- Tamsin Greig (ditto)
- John Noble (really stands out at those rolls that need a certain level of intensity however my favourite is Walter Bishop)
- Robert Webb (facial expressions that could make a nun laugh)

Nice choice. I liked him as 'Brian' in Spaced, but I think his best has to be Mr. Lizard in Jam!

I really don't have any.  Most of the stuff I watch is low budget junk full of unknown actors who have probably only had tiny parts in other films.  Don't really care for the Hollywood stuff with the celebrities playing the exact same character in every movie (not that it's entirely their fault, that's what they hire them for).  I find it very distracting.
