    Johnny Depp - To many reason but to pick one... [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Leonardo DiCaprio - Dare I admit. Yes he was in the utterly shit Titanic but I like him because of Whats eating Gilbert grape as above but I could also choose [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    I think Patrick Stewart is a good actor but I left him out purely because he is a cunt too

    Never heard of The Guard but it does look like my sort of things, plus it has Liam Cunningham in it which I rate.

    Will give it a blast thanks.

    Male:
    Ricardo Darin - Argentinian actor in films like The Secret in Their Eyes and Nine Queens
    Michael Fassbender - Hunger. For the scene with Rory Mullen, they lived together for 3 weeks and did little else than practice that scene (about 20 mins single take).


    Female:
    Laurie Metcalf - Played Roseanne's sister. The third episode of Horace and Pete's is pretty much a monologue and quite superb

    Edit: I'll add Judy Dench to the list of actresses.

    I am struggling to think of any actresses that I really admire. What doesn't help is the fact that many want to be taken seriously and yet are happy to prance about in their underwear on magazine covers. They would argue that sex sells, so being a Shakespeare wonk isn't going to get them many Hollywood roles.

    Its all fucked up IMHO.

    Agreed. Loved him in In Bruges" too

    I think Tom Hardy has done some decent stuff. Thought he played the Kray twins superbly

    really struggled on the actresses
    You know he grew up as a little shitspark from the old shitflint and then he turned into a shitbonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shitfirestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.
