    Power is not revealed by striking hard or often, but by striking true.

    It is men who endure toil and dare danger that achieve glorious deeds, and it is a wonderful thing to live with courage and to die leaving behind an everlasting renown.

      Christopher Walken
      Vince Vaughn
      Matt Damon
      Will Farrell

      Jaoquin (sp?) Phoenix

      I think that pretty much covers it. I realize that's 11, but the only one in order is Walken. He's my absolute favorite.

            I tried to make a list, but I couldn't restrict it to 10.

            There are great film actors like Connery, Cage, Damon and many others. Then there are great character actors like Fred Thompson or Gandolfini (before Sopranos fame) and other other character actors who you know by site, but not by name.

            Then there are the actresses like Emma Thompson, Susan Sarandon or the current high dollar actressess like Roberts or Witherspoon, maybe actresses we don't see much anymore like Madeline stowe or Julia Ormon. Then there are the ones that have been around for ever like Diane keeton and Merryl Streep. Then there are the cuties like Tea Leon, Jessica Alba, Denise Richards and many more (sorry, was that sexist ).

            I have to give a special shoutout to Edie Falco, both because I think she is a good actress, but also because of a special connection.

            We haven't even touched TV, with actors such as Hugh Lorie, Badford Whitley (I think that's his name, Josh from West Wing), and so many more.

            The point is that when I started to make a list, names started to pop in my head, but I realized that there are far too many to truely boil down into a top 10. In much the same way that I couldn't list a single or even ten favorite movies.

            Guess I failed the pop quiz

The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

                            Ten...........only ten!!!!!!! Oh well, I'll limit myself to the movies, and this is just ten off the bat, I'd drive myself mad if I tried to pick an actual ten . I'd probably try a film just because one of these was in it

                            Clint Eastwood - Suppose I'd better put Clint here, I've got pretty well all of his movies and have just finished watching Jaws' signature

                            Denzel Washington - Man On Fire is currently one of my favourite movies.

                            Samuel L Jackson - The coolest bleep-bleeping Jedi ever .

                            Robert DeNiro - Well if you have to ask why.............

                            Gene Hackman - Superb at whatever he turns his hand to

                            Will Smith - Same as Hackman to an extent, he just makes it work

                            Sigourney Weaver - If only for Alien & Aliens

                            Peter Cushing / Christopher Lee - Although very succesful individually, I'll count these as one as their best work was often playing against each other

                            Forest Whitaker - I can't believe it's nearly 20 years since I first saw him in Platoon, and I'm going to break my own rule here by mentioning his role as Kavanaugh in The Shield , bloody brilliant.

                            Bill Murray - although he can do serious, from Stripes to Ghostbusters and onwards, the guy just makes me laugh.
