This is my favorite actors and actresses + why they are my favorites...

You got to understand that this is not a list of the good films nor what I think of the movies itself... It's about how they play the character and how much I adore them/think their cool!

Just have that in mind, and you'll do fine :)

Both Connery and Caine were really good in The Man Who Would be King

I found Nicholson flat in About Schmidt but a convincing devil in Witches of Eastwick.

I also liked Clive Owen in Croupier (rated 98% at RT)

I agree, Beech, one of the best movies of the 1970's.

Wow, you have almost the exact favourite actors/actresses as me! Except you are missing one very important person, Johnny Depp.
