List: Favorite Actors

Listed alphabetically by last name...because it would take FOREVER for me to decide otherwise haha!  Also, I tried to keep it to 10...but I just couldn't do that either.  Enjoy!

Christian Bale
Favorite works include: American Psycho, Equilibrium, The Machinist, Rescue Dawn, The Fighter, The Flowers of War, and of course...the Batman films!  I don't care what anyone says...his Batman voice is totally sexy.

Adrien Brody
Favorite works include: The Pianist, The Jacket, King Kong, The Darjeeling Limited, and The Brothers Bloom.

Benedict Cumberbatch
Favorite works include: Atonement, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, 12 Years A Slave, and Sherlock.

Leonardo DiCaprio
Favorite works include: Titanic, The Beach, Gangs of New York, Catch Me If You Can, The Aviator, The Departed, Blood Diamond, Revolutionary Road, Shutter Island, Inception, Django Unchained, and The Great Gatsby.  I really hope he wins an Oscar this year for The Wolf of Wall Street, even though I haven't seen it yet.  I just think he deserves something HUGE for all of the great performances he's churned out year after year for such a long time.  It blows my mind that he's never won an Oscar.

Michael Fassbender
Favorite works include: Hunger, Fish Tank, Inglourious Basterds, Jane Eyre, A Dangerous Method, Shame (one of my all-time favorites), Prometheus, and 12 Years a Slave.

Ryan Gosling
Favorite works include: Murder by Numbers, The Notebook, Half Nelson, Lars and the Real Girl (I think this might be my absolute favorite of his!), Blue Valentine, Drive, Crazy Stupid Love, and Only God Forgives (which I posted about here).  I really wanna see The Place Beyond the Pines...which I plan on getting around to VERY soon!

Tom Hardy
Favorite works include: Inception, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Lawless, and The Dark Knight Rises.  I bought Bronson the other and am reeeally excited to see it.  Hopefully I'll get a chance to watch it one day this week :)

Philip Seymour Hoffman
Favorite works include: Boogie Nights, The Big Lebowski, Cold Mountain, Capote, Mission Impossible III, The Savages, and Doubt.

Mads Mikkelsen
Favorite works include: Flame and Citron, A Royal Affair, The Hunt, and Hannibal.  I'm really looking forward to buying and watching Valhalla Rising-I've heard it's pretty great.

Viggo Mortensen
Favorite works include: The Lord of the Rings I, II, and III, Hidalgo, A History of Violence, Eastern Promises, The Road, and A Dangerous Method.

Guy Pearce
Favorite works include: Momento, The Road, The King's Speech, Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, Lawless, Prometheus, and Iron Man III.

Christoph Waltz
Favorite works include: Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained.  As you can see, this guy is relatively new on my favorites list.  He's just awesome....also...he grows one of the most magnificent beards EVER! :)  I'm really looking forward to seeing him in the upcoming Tim Burton film: Big Eyes.

So there they are!  I tried to keep it to a "top 10" list, but I just couldn't do it.  I get really excited any time I find out about a new movie any of these guys are participating in.
Next week I'll do a similar list of favorite actresses :)

Who are your favorite actors?

  1. basically all of these plus Idris Elba..but Christoph Waltz is my husband in my head...

    1. Idris Elba is pretty damn awesome :) I am in love with Christoph the point that my boyfriend gets really tired of hearing about him hahaha :)

  2. I love Benedict Cumberpatch. Just started watching season 3 of Sherlock. Following your blog now.


    1. Isn't he the best Sherlock ever!? Also...his voice is AMAZING!

  3. I love Ryan Gosling and Michael Fassbender, but my fave actor is Paul Giamatti.

    1. Paul Giamatti is GREAT! Did you know one of his middle names is Valentine? How awesome is that?! I loved him in Lady in the Water :)

  4. I think Christian Bale is really amazing at acting.
    And Benedict Cumberbatch is really very good at acting.

    I used to love Don Cheadle in movies (then it was like when he became a "name" versus "that one guy" his movies became not so good).
    But Johnny Depp and Tim Curry I love.

    I feel as though you can tell what kind of a person you are, based on which Tim Curry movie you know. ;)
    (not in a judging way, but more of a sense of humor, mannerisms, etc.)

    1. Johnny Depp and Tim Curry are near the top for me too. I have an upcoming "favorites" post that they'll both be in! My favorite Tim Curry films are (of course) The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Legend, and Clue. AND even though the movie sucked-he was a super scary Pennywise in IT. Did you know they're re-making that movie?! It's going to be directed by Cary Fukunaga. I think it'll be GREAT!
