        Your list is pretty good btw. I'm too lazy to make on right now, but if I did, it would have most of the people you had, plus Bale and Neeson.

            Neeson I contemplated but I just could not find a spot for him.

            Same with Guy Pierce and Hugh Laurie.

                  It is in order.

                  Bale I put at 3.

                  Sean Penn and Will Smith got consideration but I had to leave them out.

                      Spacey is a 2 time academy award winner. The thing about Pacino and DeNiro is that they don't have fantastic range. They nail the tough guy gangster roles perfectly but could you see them as a computer nerd? I can't.

                      Both Hoffman and DDL are amazing actors. They can play any role you give them perfectly. Watch a DDL interview and then go watch Gangs of New York or There Will Be Blood. You will see that Daniel Day Lewis is a wimp in real life, but is a complete badass in those movies.

                      As for Spacey, go watch the movie Se7en and tell me he does not deserve to be on this list.

                      John Turturro is the ultimate character actor, he can play a dweeb (Barton Fink), an idiot (O Brother Where Art Thou), A scumbag (Miller's Crossing) and even a scary tough guy (Secret Window). All in all he is very very underrated. Yes I believe he is a better actor than DeNiro.

                        Deniro can go from comedys like meet the parents and anaylize this to a busdriver father in broxtale to a crazy boxer in raging bull AWAKININGS deer hunter taxi driver, a weirdo in the king of comedy, a voice in sharktale as well as the gangster roles. What movies impressed u with phillip hoffman along came polly and big lebowski? Really? Taturo was a fool in o brother where art thou his work in anger management and mr deeds he's not a serious actor like that.daniel day lewis hasn't done enough and y is james woods on the list I'd put jamie foxx over a lot of them

                          The list ...

                          ... should include Geoffrey Rush, Peter O'Toole and Anthony Hopkins.

                              No doubt DeNiro is a great actor, but look at a comedy like Meet The Parents. It is a comedy but DeNiro plays the same intimidating character.

                              DDL hasn't done enough? Yes, he is a very selective actor. But look at the roles he has done. Won an Academy Award for My Left Foot, well deserved. Nominated for an Academy Award for Gangs Of New York, should have won. Won an Academy Award for There Will Be Blood which is also well deserved.

                              Hoffman was great in both Along Came Polly and the Big Lebowski. But if you want to take a serious look at him as an actor watch his roles in Capote, Before the Devil Knows Your Dead, The Talented Mr. Ripley and Pirate Radio.

                              Your right Turturro was a fool in O Brother Where Art Thou, but that is because that was the character. Every actor has been in some bad movies so you can't fault him for that. Once again watch Secret Window, Barton Fink and Miller's Crossing and you will se why he is great.

                              You are seriously dogging the great James Woods? One of the greatest actors to walk this planet? He is money in every movie he is in, how many actors can make you laugh, feel bad for him and make your skin crawl all at the same time. Watch Sergio Leonne's masterpiece Once Upon A Time In America and tell me he is not great. Not to mention his great roles in Casino, Salvador, Against All Odds and Ghosts of Missisippi.
