A lesser known actor, and probably a bit of a left-field addition to the names here, but I've always been a fan of Michael Shanks (probably best known for his role as Dr Daniel Jackson, in Stargate SG:1).  His range of acting is quite awesome, in my opinion.

Inception is a 2010 English-language science fiction thriller film written, co-produced, and directed by Christopher Nolan. The film stars a large ensemble cast that includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Ken Watanabe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Ellen Page, Tom Hardy, Dileep Rao, Cillian Murphy, Tom Berenger, and Michael Caine. DiCaprio plays Dom Cobb, a thief who commits corporate espionage by infiltrating the subconscious of his targets. He is offered a chance to regain his old life as payment for a task considered to be impossible: "inception", the implantation of another person's idea into a target's subconscious

Andy Serkis. Gollum may be CGI, but it is really Serkis. And he was fantastic as Ian Drury in "Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll".  Sigourney Weaver for the first three Alien films, awesome. And from left field, Robert Picardo for his appearances in the Stargate series and more recently in an independant film "Sensored", which seems to have slipped under the radar.

i think mark dacoscos is underrated actor

by the name of Allah the Gracious the Merciful
Say, "I seek refuge in the Lord of daybreak From the evil of that which He created
And from the evil of darkness when it settles And from the evil of the blowers in knots
And from the evil of an envier when he envies"
truthful was Allah The Most High And Great

I need to add some actresses to my list. Jodie Foster and Meryl Streep top my modern list. Hepburn likely tops my classic era list. Grace Kelly was the epitome of a leading lady when it comes to being the total package.

Posted 13 March 2013 - 02:16 AM

Richard Chamberlain, Jeremy Irons, Linus Roache, Alyson Hannigan. The last two are deffinitely two who project emotions very well and also seem so honest in their emotions. Pretty much the only two actors who have made me cry without aid of the script (IE the script was meh but they were great).

Honorable mentions go to: Keith Szarabajka, Nicholas Lea, Dave Foley, Silar Weir Mitchell and Colin Ferguson. They're just typically fun to watch.

I feel like I need more chicks on my list.

I don't know about best, that's kind of subjective so I'll give my favorites.

Actors- Jeff Daniels and Jeff Bridges. Both of them are capable of acting in any genre of film and they have. Comedy. Drama Action, you name it, they can do it.

Actresses- Kate Winslet and Jodie Foster. Same as above. They can play whatever part they wish to and succeed in doing so.

Anthony Quinn was great in "The Shoes of the Fisherman" in which he played a pope. Have you seen the cable series, "The Borgias"? Irons and the rest of the cast were great. I watched just the first season.
