Lions for Lambs

CFM and I were watching the movie Wednesday night and I made the comment to my CP, Leah, that I loved his movies and tought he should have won a best actor award by now.

She said she thought no matter what movie he was in, he's still Tom Cruise.

OKAY, I have to admit. She's right. I sat through the rest of the movie thinking Tom Cruise just doesn't seem like a senator. He just seems like Tom Cruise.

I DID LOVE HIM in Top Gun though. I've watched that movie 50 times - everybody at my house used to run when it came on.

Who are your favorite actors?

Johnny Depp is one of those actors who becomes his character - and I admire that ability, even when it makes him creepy. (Sweeney Todd or Willy Wonka anyone? *shudder*)

Hugh Jackman who is equally at home playing a totally alpha 'Wolverine' or a Victorian gentleman (Kate and Leopold and The Prestige)

Colin Farrell - especially in The Recruit.

Brad Pitt although he can sometimes slide into a 'Cruise-like' persona.
That's just the ones I can think of off the top of my head.
(Hmm, I'm sensing a theme of pretty boys here ...)
