besides George Clooney, actors that you like...

Post by macs on Sat Feb 18 2012, 12:26

did not find a similar thread, is it ok if I open one ?
well it's just me being curious but I was wandering, besides of George Clooney, do you follow/like any other actors ? let's do some movie musing... can be anybody, whether you have a crush on him - or you think he's highly talented etc.
you don't have to answer if it's too personal, LOL...
for my part, always loved Dustin Hoffman, Daniel Day Lewis, Nani Moretti, small crush on Hugh Laurie - as a teenager used to have a crush on Bruce Willis, Mel Gibson (that was before his bad breakdowns of course), Kenneth Branagh
(oh since I'm french I can also think of a few over here, Jean Pierre Bacri, Lambert Wilson...)

Nathan Fillion - I just adore him. I will watch him in anything and his twitter and interviews make me laugh.

Google Earth pose!

Good Idea macs.
I like Robert Downey Jr and Colin Firth and have most
of their films on DVD.
Years ago I had a strong feeling for Dirk Bogarde, in his older years, and saw all of his films from The Servant onwards. Providence & Death in Venice are my particular favourites. I also own all of his books. He's a great writer.
As a teenager my first real passion was Mario Lanza !

only actors who are still alive ? phew

ok - I like Dustin Hoffmann, Robert Redford, John Cleese, Bill Cosby !, Gerad Depardieu, Sean Connery

but when I was younger (teenager) I adored:

Lino Ventura, Jean Gabin, Yves Montand, Alec Guiness, Heinrich George (father of Götz George), Jack Lemmon, Walter Matthau

and Orson Wells and Marlon Brando - even if they were crazy

I've watched only 'Actually Love' with Colin Firth,
but someday I will watch 'The King's Speech'

I'm honest: I don't know Nathan Fillon - I have to google him

and I really have to google this Dujardin - sorry

better before the O's ? Smile

Nice thread, Macs.

Hmmm, there's no actor that I really 'follow' the same way I follow George (just not enough hours in the day) but there are actors whose films I will always go and see just because they're in them and they seem to pick good films such as Leo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt.

I also have a soft spot for Johnny Depp.

When I was very young I had a crush on Matt Dillon.

When I was younger Henry Darrow, Pete Duel, Cary Grant, Tom Conti...now Rufus Sewell, Neil Pearson and Joshua Jackson, sometimes Clive Owen...I only like Colin Firth as Mr Darcy in P&P.

It started out some time ago as OMG, Oh My God(Gosh). We used to say OMP for Oh My Piero, but since she's gone, I use OME for Oh My Einstein. When you have to emphasize something, you have to add the "F" for f*cking. Hence, OMFE - Oh My F*cking Einstein.

Nathan Fillion is getting a just a little pudgy for my taste...

But let me tell you -- if I could get in a room with Hugh Jackman for just a couple of hours or a couple of days! Yummo!

Yea, yea I know he's married in THIS universe, but we're talking like in that alternate Star Trek universe kinda way. You know where they look the same but their life situations are totally different.

That's how I feel about Will Smith, he's married but... although if I were in a room with both Will and George ( in that parallel world) there would be no contest, I like that salt and peppa baby

I tend to gravitate to brown eyes

Oh and for some reason, George had me at the word Shark from One Fine Day... probably because i liked sharks before he came along and hearing him...... oh oops we are supposed to be talking other actors hidingbehindsofa

I tell myself that he was just being a method actor as he incorporated the weight gain into the new season of Castle when his character was pinning for the female lead when she didn't speak to him for three months so the character let himself go a bit. He is losing the weight now. And he makes me laugh so that trumps any weight gain or physical change (other than a large prominent tattoo).

For anyone who isn't aware of who he is, watch his interviews and check out his twitter in conjunction with his actual acting work (Castle, Firefly, Dr Horrible sing-along, Serenity, Waitress, etc). He appears to be a solidly decent and nice human being who is funny and just a bit geeky. Although having followed G for some long, I have learnt it may just be carefully created public image but there is no reason yet not to believe it.

I love old movies so I'm a fan of Clark Gable, Cary Grant, Jimmy Stewart, James Dean, Paul Newman.
Growing up I liked Shaun Cassidy, Scott Baio.
Currently, I'm a fan of Daniel-Day Lewis, Colin Firth, Nathan Fillion. And Tom Selleck still makes my heart beat a little faster. Lol. I love you

I love Jimmy Stewart and Bud Tingwell (aussie actor) always had a thing for Danial Day-Lewis he doesn't work as much these days. Loved My Beautiful Laundrette and Age of Innocence.

Growing up who didn't love Scott Baio and I had a big thing for John Schneider (Bo Duke) and Christopher Atkins. Loved McGarrett in Hawaii Five O and James Garner in the Rockford Files. Got into music and was into Adam Ant and then Prince....I guess I liked guys who wore a little makeup! Both of who acted one better then the other...
