    Bruce Willis

    Born March 19, 1955, on a military base in Idar-Oberstein, West Germany, Bruce Willis grew up in Penns Grove, N.J. He studied acting in New York while tending bar and made his film debut as an extra in The First Deadly Sin and The Verdict.

    Willis's wise guy sparring with Cybill Sheperd on TV's "Moonlighting" made him a superstar and won him an Emmy. His first major film roles, Blind Date and Sunset, played on his romantic comedy rep; neither film was a hit. It was his risky casting as tough cop John McClane in 1988's Die Hard that paid off in aces, making him one of the all-time TV-to-big-screen successes.

    Willis alternates between action epics (two Die Hard sequels, The Last Boy Scout, The Fifth Element, Armageddon, Tears of the Sun), comedy (Death Becomes Her, The Whole Nine Yards) and more personal, offbeat projects (Twelve Monkeys, Pulp Fiction and his biggest hit, The Sixth Sense).

    ETA: @Bad Robot, you'll want Red 2 on your list as well: just as much fun as Red 1.
    1 Even though Red wasn't the film of the comic by a long chalk.

    I only put down the ones I could remember seeing for Jason Statham, for Michael Caine I did it differently and took a list of all his film credits and deleted all of his films I haven't seen.

    Moonlighting was excellent.
    But it certainly is going back a bit: he had hair in those days!

    Ah, yes I've seen all those Jason movies too, and after seeing Red1 there is no way I wouldn't watch Red2. But I have to wait on Netflix to release them, also some movies I want to see won't be released by Netflix and I won't be seeing them .

    One might construe this to imply "actors playing females". Female "actors" are actually actresses, no? Sorry, I couldn't resist! In reality, today's world seems to require that gender is no longer meaningful, girls will be boys, etc., that maybe they AIN'T actresses anymore! So there! joc

    I think actor can be both male and female and the word actress can only be female, so I choose not to use it.

    One might construe this to imply "actors playing females". Female "actors" are actually actresses, no? Sorry, I couldn't resist! In reality, today's world seems to require that gender is no longer meaningful, girls will be boys, etc., that maybe they AIN'T actresses anymore! So there! joc



    I think actor can be both male and female and the word actress can only be female, so I choose not to use it.
    Correct.

    I am an actor.....*S* male or female.


    I think you should not have been able to copy and paste them and that each of us could have added a favorite.

    Audrey Hepburn "My Fair Lady"

    Bruce Wills...just love him

    Patrick Swayze "DIRTY DANCING" great movie

    Goldie Hawn "Private Benjamin" and "Overboard"

    ANYONE IN "Caddyshack"

    Kevin Costner "Tin Cup"

    Morgan Freeman

    Born June 1, 1937, in Memphis, Tenn., Morgan Freeman has enjoyed a long career onstage, in television and in movies, where his presence has lent an air of gravitas to many features. He had a nomadic childhood, moving with his family from Mississippi to Indiana to Illinois.

    At age 12, Freeman won a statewide drama competition that confirmed his acting promise. He made his Broadway debut in the all-black "Hello, Dolly" and went on to originate the role of the black chauffeur in the off-Broadway hit "Driving Miss Daisy."

    After broad TV and film experience, Freeman made his mark in Glory (1989), scored Oscar nods for his work in the screen version of Driving Miss Daisy (1989) and The Shawshank Redemption (1994), then won the statue for his supporting turn in Million Dollar Baby (2004). Playing Nelson Mandela in 2009's Invictus, Freeman earned Golden Globe and Oscar nominations for Best Actor.

    I find it hard not to watch anything Will Smith does.

    Will Smith

    "Fresh Prince" Will Smith is a bona fide Hollywood rarity: a Grammy Award-winning rapper who has successfully crossed over into superstar leading man status in movies. Born Sept. 25, 1968, in Philadelphia, Smith -- who earned the boyhood moniker "the Prince" because of his innate charm -- was the second of four children. At age 16, Smith teamed with DJ Jazzy Jeff, and the duo quickly found fame and inked a record contract as rappers. In 1989, Smith parlayed his musical success into the long-running TV sitcom "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air."
    From there, it was a short step to feature films, several of which became blockbusters, including Independence Day (1996) and Men in Black (1997). Smith garnered critical acclaim as well as Golden Globe and Oscar nods for playing boxer Muhammad Ali in Ali (2001) and a down-on-his-luck but determined father in The Pursuit of Happyness (2006).

    One of my favorite bad guys.

    John Travolta

    John Travolta was born Feb. 18, 1954, in Englewood, N.J. A high school dropout, he made his acting debut in commercials and in the touring company of the musical "Grease." In 1975, he made his film debut (with a one-line role in The Devil's Rain) and launched his teen-idol career with a role on the TV sitcom "Welcome Back, Kotter."

    Travolta shot to superstardom in Saturday Night Fever (1977), earning an Oscar nomination as Best Actor. Just months later, he delivered a one-two punch with the immensely successful Grease. Lesser hits followed in the 1980s, and by the end of the decade, Travolta's career was waning.

    But Quentin Tarantino rescued Travolta by casting him as hit man Vincent Vega in Pulp Fiction (1994), and after nabbing his second Oscar nod, Travolta was a star again. Since then, he's played both good and bad guys in such films as Broken Arrow, Michael and Face/Off.

    Charles Bronson

    Charles Bronson was born Nov. 3, 1921, in rural Pennsylvania, one of 15 children of a Lithuanian coal miner. After World War II service, he enrolled at the Pasadena Playhouse and began appearing in small roles in television and movies as Charles Buchinski. He played many henchman, soldier and Indian roles, including Ygor in House of Wax (1953).

    Renamed Bronson after 1954, he starred in The Magnificent Seven, The Dirty Dozen and many other notable films. Filling in for Clint Eastwood in 1968's Once Upon a Time in the West made Bronson a superstar in Europe, where he worked for several years (he was known as "Il Bruto" in Italy). In 1972, he nabbed a special Golden Globe Award as "The World's Most Popular Actor."

    Back in the United States, Bronson scored again as the vigilante hero of Death Wish (1974) and continued in the same vein well into his 70s. He died Aug. 30, 2003.

    Don't agree.

    Their film contents were different. He is underrated as an actor by many.

    He is as good as his father in the content of the films he chooses.

    Jeff (and his brother) were superb in The Fabulous Baker Boys. And Michelle Pfeiffer was a hell of a shock - she can sing.
    Thunderbolt & Lightfoot.
    Tron (of course).
    Starman.
    The previously-mentioned Fabulous Baker Boys.
    Fisher King.
    Iron Man.
    The Men Who Stare at Goats.
    R.I.P.D. (A role he was born for!).

    I didn't particularly rate Lloyd Bridges. I saw him as a competent, and fairly successful, American film and TV actor.
    But I suppose rating actors is subjective and thus a matter of personal judgement.

    You are correct.

    The other issue would be the content of the films each man performed in and the time periods when filmed.

    Films even 10 years ago vastly different than those now.

    They aren't quite apples to apples, so to speak. Each one good in their time, and the subject matter and era of their movies.

    I don't know if I could write a decent article on Jeff Bridge's qualities as an actor, but we are entitled to make our own judgements. Some actors are intrinsically better than others and performances, even from different time periods, can be compared.

    I know Lloyd Bridges more from slapstick films, so he is not really the same type of actor as his sons, from my perspective at least. In those movies he is a legend. Who can forget Airplane!, Mafia! and Hot Shots! 1 & deux?

    Never seen it, but I'm guessing from your reaction it's worth watching.

    I was going to do Juliette Binoche, I really quite like French films, yes she has done Engilsh language ones as well, I've seen what 10 of her films but checked how many and she's made over 50!

    Clint Eastwood

    The son of a steelworker, Clint Eastwood was born May 31, 1930, in San Francisco and toiled as a logger and a gas station attendant before moving to Hollywood.

    After attaining minor fame in the TV series "Rawhide," Eastwood became a star in the wake of director Sergio Leone's spaghetti Western trilogy A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. With a face and presence born to play rugged roles, Eastwood continued to turn heads in Dirty Harry (1971) and In the Line of Fire (1993).

    Eastwood has also worked behind the camera and achieved directorial success in 1992 with his Oscar-winning Western Unforgiven. His Academy recognition continued with Best Director nods for Mystic River (2003) and Letters from Iwo Jima (2006), with a win for Million Dollar Baby in between. He scored another honor in 2009 with a Golden Globe nod as Best Director for Invictus.

    I didn't particularly rate Lloyd Bridges. I saw him as a competent, and fairly successful, American film and TV actor.
    But I suppose rating actors is subjective and thus a matter of personal judgement.
    You are correct.

    The other issue would be the content of the films each man performed in and the time periods when filmed.

    Films even 10 years ago vastly different than those now.

    They aren't quite apples to apples, so to speak. Each one good in their time, and the subject matter and era of their movies.
    I don't know if I could write a decent article on Jeff Bridge's qualities as an actor, but we are entitled to make our own judgements. Some actors are intrinsically better than others and performances, even from different time periods, can be compared.
    I agree acting abilitiy can be compared , but I think script content is also part of the equation.

    Jean-Claude Van Damme

    Born in Agathe, Belgium, on Oct. 18, 1960, athletic action hero Jean-Claude Van Damme was practicing martial arts by age 11 and went on to win a string of competitive honors, including the European Professional Karate Association's middleweight championship, and even studied ballet to improve his form.

    His dreams of becoming a movie star began to take shape when he moved to America and was cast as a Russian in No Retreat, No Surrender (1986), which led to high-profile but formulaic roles in films such as Bloodsport (1988), Kickboxer (1989), Double Impact (1991) and The Quest (1996).

    Despite his catchy nickname as "the Muscles from Brussels," Van Damme hasn't experienced the same degree of crossover success as fellow strongmen Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger -- but he's come close with the high-grossing hits Universal Soldier (1992) and Nowhere to Run (1993).

    Tom Cruise

    Born July 3, 1962, in Syracuse, N.Y., Thomas Cruise Mapother had a nomadic childhood, changing schools 15 times by the time he finally settled with his mother and stepfather in Glen Ridge, N.J., in 1974.

    A one-time Franciscan seminary student who renounced Catholicism and embraced Scientology in 1990, Cruise developed an interest in acting as a teenager, dropped out of high school and headed across the Hudson River for a potential career on Broadway.

    After Cruise made his film debut in Endless Love (1981), he gained popularity with the teen comedy Risky Business (1983). His career then kicked into high gear in a series of leading roles -- Top Gun (1986), The Color of Money (1986), Rain Man (1988), Mission: Impossible (1996) and Jerry Maguire (1996) -- that became box-office bonanzas and cemented his megastar status.

    Nicolas Cage

    Born Nicholas Coppola on Jan. 7, 1964, in Long Beach, Calif., Cage is the son of college professor August Coppola, nephew of director Francis Coppola and cousin of Sofia Coppola. He dropped out of Beverly Hills High to pursue acting, changing his name to declare his independence from the Coppola empire.

    After a bit part in Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Uncle Francis cast Cage in 1983's Rumble Fish; that and the same year's Valley Girl set his career in motion. He worked for Francis again in The Cotton Club and Peggy Sue Got Married, and made cult-movie history by eating a live cockroach in Vampire's Kiss.

    Cage's role as a doomed alcoholic in Leaving Las Vegas (1995) won him the Best Actor Academy Award. He was nominated again for 2002's Adaptation, in which he played identical twins. Other unforgettable Cage moments are to be relished in Birdy, Raising Arizona, Face/Off and Snake Eyes.

    Angelina Jolie

    Angelina Jolie was born June 4, 1975, in Los Angeles. As the daughter of Oscar-winner Jon Voight, she was quickly immersed in showbiz and made her screen debut at age 5 in the comedy Lookin' to Get Out (1982).

    Jolie began studying acting at age 11 at the Lee Strasberg Theater Institute in New York City, after which she worked as a professional model and appeared in music videos and onstage in Los Angeles. She returned to the big screen in 1993 with Cyborg 2 and began to garner more attention with subsequent film and TV roles.

    It was Jolie's outstanding turn as drug-addicted, AIDS-stricken model Gia Carangi in HBO's Gia (1998) that brought her widespread critical acclaim (and a Golden Globe). Jolie is also known for her Academy Award-winning supporting role in Girl, Interrupted (1999) and for Changeling (2008), which netted her a Best Actress Oscar nod. Her performance in 2010's The Tourist earned Jolie a Golden Globe nomination.

    Antonio Banderas

    Born Aug. 10, 1960, in Malaga, Spain, Antonio Banderas had an early ambition to be a professional soccer player, but a foot injury led him to street performing and an education at the School of Dramatic Art in Malaga.

    For 10 years in Spain, he was associated with the films of Pedro Almodovar, starting with 1982's Labyrinth of Passion. For his U.S. debut in The Mambo Kings (1992), Banderas learned his English lines phonetically. Subsequent supporting roles in Philadelphia and Interview with the Vampire led to his starring debut in Desperado, a role he reprised in 2003's Once Upon a Time in Mexico.

    As the dashing lead in 1998's hit Mask of Zorro, Banderas swashbuckled his way to worldwide stardom. His diverse roles include Che Guevara in the musical Evita, Dad in the Spy Kids series, the title role in TV's "And Starring Pancho Villa as Himself" and the voice of Puss 'n Boots in Shrek 2.

    [QUOTE=Bad Robot;458863]Antonio Banderas

    Born Aug. 10, 1960, in Malaga, Spain, Antonio Banderas had an early ambition to be a professional soccer player, but a foot injury led him to street performing and an education at the School of Dramatic Art in Malaga.

    For 10 years in Spain, he was associated with the films of Pedro Almodovar, starting with 1982's Labyrinth of Passion. For his U.S. debut in The Mambo Kings (1992), Banderas learned his English lines phonetically. Subsequent supporting roles in Philadelphia and Interview with the Vampire led to his starring debut in Desperado, a role he reprised in 2003's Once Upon a Time in Mexico.

    As the dashing lead in 1998's hit Mask of Zorro, Banderas swashbuckled his way to worldwide stardom. His diverse roles include Che Guevara in the musical Evita, Dad in the Spy Kids series, the title role in TV's "And Starring Pancho Villa as Himself" and the voice of Puss 'n Boots in Shrek 2.

His career then kicked into high gear in a series of leading roles -- Top Gun (1986), The Color of Money (1986), Rain Man (1988), Mission: Impossible (1996) and Jerry Maguire (1996) -- that became box-office bonanzas and cemented his megastar status.

    Most Tom Cruise's stuff is pretty cool, thought him and Cameron Diaz joint appearance on Top Gear was a hoot as well. If you get chance check out Oblivion, I thought it was a cool movie.

    Green for Danger & School for Scoundrels also featured a hugely under-recognised actor - Alistair Sim.
    41 years of film acting and not "famous".
    Green for Danger is a favourite of mine, but he's probably best known for dressing up women's' clothes and playing brother and sister 1 - the St. Trinian's films.

    1 And Rupert Everett did well in the "remakes" - surprisingly enjoyable (in that they didn't "update" them to make them "trendy" and stuck to the original ethos).

    I didn't realize William Shatner existed beyond Star Trek.

    William Shatner


    Among pop culture's most famous faces, William Shatner was born March 22, 1931, in Montreal. Though he's best known for portraying USS Enterprise Capt. Kirk, Shatner's work spans theatrical films, directing and producing.

    Upon moving to New York City in 1956, he worked on Broadway and in television, landing his first important movie role in 1961's Judgment at Nuremberg. In 1966, Shatner accepted the lead in the TV series "Star Trek," which would steer much of his later career, spawning numerous film sequels.

    Shatner spoofed himself in the 1982 comedy Airplane II and returned to series television the same year with "T.J. Hooker." Thereafter, he alternated movie and TV work, picking up an Emmy in 2004 for his recurring role on "The Practice" and an Emmy in 2005 for his supporting role in "Boston Legal."

    Speaking of Star Trek and more.

    Patrick Stewart

    A classically taught star of stage, screen and television, Patrick Stewart is best known for playing Capt. Jean-Luc Picard in the hit TV series "Star Trek: The Next Generation."

    Born July 13, 1940, in Mirfield, England, Stewart began his thespian training at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and put his dramatic skills to work with a variety of repertory groups; in 1966 he joined the Royal Shakespeare Company. On stage, he led the cast as Prospero in the 1995 Broadway production of "The Tempest."

    Stewart's roster of movie credits includes Dune (1984), Conspiracy Theory (1997), X-Men (2000) and the 1998 cable remake of Moby Dick, for which he racked up Golden Globe and Emmy nominations. He scored another Emmy nod in 2010 for his turn in the PBS broadcast of "Hamlet." Stewart's commanding tone has led to ample voice work in films, including The Prince of Egypt (1998) and Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius (2001).

    Okay, suppose we like certain actors and actresses, but not every one of their movies? Like, for example I liked Brad Pitt a lot in Fight Club, Legends of the Fall, Se7en, and Inglorious Bastards, but I didn't like him in Thelma & Louise, for example. Is it all or nothing, in order to list the /actress we enjoy?

    I've been listing all the movies of each actor and then highlighting the ones I've seen. That doesn't mean I want to watch all those unseen movies. But I think it's good to list them so readers can get a good feel for the actor and his or her skill at different types of movies.

    I need to play catch up on James Spader, but I really liked his acting in the TV series Boston Legal and I'm looking forward to his new series The Blacklist. I just noticed he also played Dr. Daniel Jackson in the Stargate series.

    James Spader

    Boston native James Spader -- born Feb. 7, 1960 -- dropped out of an exclusive prep school to pursue acting. After his first notable film role as Brooke Shields's brother in Endless Love (1981), Spader found himself typecast as a smarmy yuppie in movies such as Pretty in Pink (1986), Less Than Zero and Wall Street (both 1987).

    For his portrayal of an impotent voyeur in 1989's sex, lies, and videotape, Spader bagged the Best Actor award at Cannes and pushed the boundaries of eroticism again in director David Cronenberg's controversial Crash (1996) and the indie hit Secretary (2002).

    But it was Spader's stint on "The Practice" and lead role in the spinoff "Boston Legal" (as charismatic attorney Alan Shore) that took his career in a different direction, earning the actor three consecutive Emmys for playing the same character on two separate series.

    William Shatner


    Among pop culture's most famous faces, William Shatner was born March 22, 1931, in Montreal. Though he's best known for portraying USS Enterprise Capt. Kirk, Shatner's work spans theatrical films, directing and producing.

    Upon moving to New York City in 1956, he worked on Broadway and in television, landing his first important movie role in 1961's Judgment at Nuremberg. In 1966, Shatner accepted the lead in the TV series "Star Trek," which would steer much of his later career, spawning numerous film sequels.

    Shatner spoofed himself in the 1982 comedy Airplane II and returned to series television the same year with "T.J. Hooker." Thereafter, he alternated movie and TV work, picking up an Emmy in 2004 for his recurring role on "The Practice" and an Emmy in 2005 for his supporting role in "Boston Legal."

    A classically taught star of stage, screen and television, Patrick Stewart is best known for playing Capt. Jean-Luc Picard in the hit TV series "Star Trek: The Next Generation."

    Born July 13, 1940, in Mirfield, England, Stewart began his thespian training at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and put his dramatic skills to work with a variety of repertory groups; in 1966 he joined the Royal Shakespeare Company. On stage, he led the cast as Prospero in the 1995 Broadway production of "The Tempest."

    Stewart's roster of movie credits includes Dune (1984), Conspiracy Theory (1997), X-Men (2000) and the 1998 cable remake of Moby Dick, for which he racked up Golden Globe and Emmy nominations. He scored another Emmy nod in 2010 for his turn in the PBS broadcast of "Hamlet." Stewart's commanding tone has led to ample voice work in films, including The Prince of Egypt (1998) and Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius (2001).

    You obviously never watched Boston Legal, where he co-stared with James Spader. Virtually every episode made me laugh and I watched all 5 seasons.

    That wasn't half bad! Delivered as only he could. There is only one William Shatner.

    Not the clip I was referring to though. In that clip he definitely sucks!

    Just had a decidedly odd experience. I watched "The Captains" on Youtube, which is William Shatner interviewing the other captains from over the years, but it's more philosophical than I expected.

    Avery Brooks (Captain Sisko from DS9) comes across as a lunatic! WS tries to interview him and all he does is talk gibberish, grins like a lunatic and plays piano!

    Some quite deep and revealing conversations are had, some ego driven and half pretentious meanderings, but overall I am glad to have seen it.

    Patrick Stuart remains my favourite Captain by far. The man is just an intelligent, consummate professional, completely OK with the fact that he will be remembered mostly as Picard or Star Trek.

    Was a bit difficult to sit through. A non-Trekkie would hate it.

    I also very much liked Patrick Stewart in his X-men role as Professor Charles Xavier.

    Having met the man....(his son lived a floor under me while I was in studies and he was doing a show at PCS) I would say he is such a gentleman. Very personable, and intelligent with a sense of humor.

    I could not have watched it. Thanks for the review, however!

    Lee Van Cleef

    One of the great movie villains, Lee Van Cleef started out as an accountant. He served in the U.S. Navy aboard minesweepers and subchasers during World War II. After the war he worked as an office administrator, becoming involved in amateur theatrics in his spare time. An audition for a professional role led to a touring company job in "Mr. Roberts". His performance was seen by Stanley Kramer, who cast him as henchman Jack Colby in High Noon (1952), a role that brought him great recognition despite the fact that he had no dialogue. For the next decade he played a string of memorably villainous characters, primarily in westerns but also in crime dramas such as The Big Combo (1955). His hawk nose and steely, slit eyes seemed destined to keep him always in the realm of heavies, but in the mid-'60s Sergio Leone cast him as the tough but decent Col. Mortimer opposite Clint Eastwood in For a Few Dollars More (1965). A new career as a western hero (or at least anti-hero) opened up, and Van Cleef became an international star, though in films of decreasing quality. In the 1980s he moved easily into action and martial-arts movies, and starred in "The Master" (1984), a TV series featuring almost non-stop martial arts action. He died of a heart attack in December 1989, and was buried at Forest Lawn in the Hollywood Hills.
