I’ve had a few.
Maybe a few too many.
Stripping it down to a list of just fifty was no easy thing.
Here you’ll find old school, real old school and not too many new school. Unless of course you count Leonardo DiCaprio as new school, which I doubt few people do.
Notable omissions from this list include Arnold Schwarzenegger, Pamela Anderson, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and The Hoff (David Hasselhoff). Okay, joking about the last three.
Actors share parts of themselves and the human condition that most of us, most of the time, try to keep hidden. The ones gathered here all manage to lay bare that emotional nakedness while at the same time being captivating and likeable. The innate talent for performing and entertaining shows itself in the way each of these actors move, deliver lines of dialogue and simply just their on-screen presence.
It’s said a good actor can read the phonebook (when we used to have phonebooks) and still hold an audience. That’s how I feel about each of the individuals on this list.
Now with a single wave of my hand and the command “abra-capocus!”, the time has come to hitch your wagon for the next few minutes to the most star-studded show in town and enjoy this chauffeur-driven, chrome-plated ride in all its glory.
Let the star-athon begin!
