    I cannot believe this topic hasn't been created yet on SC 2.0, so here we go.

    Who are your favourite movie actors and actresses?

    - In this case, a movie actor is an actor mostly known for being in movies. He or she can have done a few appearances in TV series or in theatre plays, but movies are the main area of fame.
    - It doesn't matter what nationality they have or if they have died.
    - You can list as many or as few as you like.

    If Larry Hagman and Linda Gray counted, I would have added William Devane to the list. He was in Hitchcock's last movie, but he's really known for t.v.
    I would like to add the following to my list: Tom Cruise
    Jack Nicholson
    Michael Keaton
    Sigourney Weaver
    Michelle Pfeiffer
    Daniel Day-Lewis
    Denzel Washington
    Kevin Bacon
    Kathleen Turner

    My list is compiled almost entirely of classic Hollywood actors and actresses. I had a list written, but I felt it was too long, so I deleted it.
