I can't say I have a favorite, but I find Will Ferrell very funny, and my favorite films seem to have employed Gene Hackman.

Maybe not the greatest actor of all time, but Clint Eastwood has the greatest presence. John Wayne is also high on my list, early Jack Nicholson, Bogart too.

Typical. I thought that only adults can watch movies with Ron Jeremy. If I have erred?

Basil Rathbone had to always be the bad guy, but mostly he was still allowed to carry a big sword duel with Flynn or Tyrone Power ...

Shore appeared as a stand-up comedian, and had minor roles in the late 80s in several films and television series. A wider audience in 1989, he was known as an MTV presenter. He had his own show, Totally Pauly, in which he may be trademarks, the "weasel" invented. 1994 ended his time at MTV. Shore, however, was especially popular for his roles in film comedies thereafter...
Many believe that he would be more significant than Charles Chaplin!

I picked him because of my collection of his Sherlock Holmes movies. I missed out on Tyrone Power!!

Lots of great choices. Brando would probably be my greatest of all time. However, my all time favorite is probably James Garner, especially within the classic James Garner persona. If he's in a movie, I'm almost assured of a reasonably good time. I can almost watch Maverick and Rockford on a loop.

Re: Favourite Male Actor Of All Time!?

I was wondering when Brando would come up. As to "favorite," that's harder, because it doesn't necessarily mean greatest. It's your favorite. Very hard, because there are so many factors: talent, or looks, or charm . . . so many things. If you put those last three together, I guess you get Newman, but he's not my favorite. I'd have to say, maybe, Peter Sellers. Amazing guy. (And I do watch Elvis Presley more than any other actor, to be honest.)
