He was awesome in "Frailty" ... which is a very, very good flick for those that have never seen it. Highly recommended film that didn't get much fan fare when it came out in 2001.

Thats a pretty cool list Swerb...is that based on who you like or how good of actor you think they are? Robin Williams @ 60 makes me wonder. And you have Costner way down there too.

Here's a guy I didn't see on your list, but is a fav of mine. Michael Madsen. He doesn't have much range. He does play the "hard ass" role quite well. Ex: Sonny in Donnie Brasco and Mr. Orange in Resevoir Dogs. He is like a drug-free Tom Sizemore.

Kevin Costner is one of the great stories in the history of hollywood.

What I love about him is the irony. Here is a guy that made his living playing mediocre, on the verge of being completely washed up, almost were's (as opposed to "has beens"). This actually perfectly describes his career.

Robin Williams has gotten very pretensious over the years and pretty much deserves his 60 spot.
Coming from a Wolverine, we're the football equivalent of a formerly abused wife of a meth addict who just remarried the safe nice guy. We're just glad we have someone who's aware that it's a rivalry and that tackling on defense is integral. Baby steps.

I agree on Costner Furls. I can't handle the guy.

You got to put Bruce Campbell on the list. The best ham of an actor that there ever was.

I'll go out of my way to watch any B movie that the guy stars in.

Good points on some of the actors and nice list, Swerb.
