You are kidding right?

Yes, Zoost, honey, I was being ironic. Just seeing if people were paying attention.

But what did you see him in? The role is as important as the actor, did anyone think Heath Ledger was capable of what he did in 'Brokeback.....' and 'Dark Knight' after watching 'Knight's Tale'? Not disputing that Cage has been in an awful lot of crap but he didn't make those films or write them, he's rubbish in them because he knows they're rubbish.

Brosnan! I forgot Brosnan! If anyone can name 2 good Brosnan films not called Goldeneye I'll buy you a pint.



Brad Pitt -

Moneyball
The Tree of Life
Inglourious Basterds
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Burn After Reading
The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford
Babel
Confessions of a Dangerous Mind
Snatch.
Fight Club
Seven Years in Tibet
Sleepers
Twelve Monkeys
Se7en
Legends of the Fall
Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles
True Romance
Kalifornia


Obviously, a really terrible actor.


Can't believe in light of some of the names mentioned nobody's put these fevered egos to the sword -

Tom Cruise
Will Ferrell
Halle Berry

Matthew Broderick
Jason Statham
Will Smith
Travolta (immense in Blow Out though)

Can't stand Will Ferrell. My kids can't believe I won't even watch Elf! Halle Berry is overrated for sure. Gorgeous for sure too.

Blow Out - Haven't thought of that one in years! Loved it!

Cruise is better than most think. I don't think people give him credit as an actor, not as much as he deserves - Born on the Fourth of July, Rain Main, A Few Good Men, Magnolia...

I agree about Cruise, Magnolia really cast off any doubts about his ability. I just think he's more worthy of the title of this thread than some who had already been mentioned.

Nicholas Cage -  :( - terrible

You obviously haven't seen "Leaving Las Vegas"  ;)

One of the finest acting performances I've seen.

Honestly I think Cruise's best role was in Tropic Thunder  :o I had NO idea that was him the entire movie, and that to me signals a great actor.

Nicholas Cage - the absolute worst actor Ive ever seen and everyone seems to love him.

Close second and third - Pierce Brosnan and Brad Pitt



Pierce isn't so bad.  Plus, us fifty something hetero ladies need some eye candy....... :)
