Best Actor of My Generation

I just finished watching "Finding Neverland" with my mommy, and I had to say that Johnny Depp is the best actor of Generation X or Y or whatever it is. My mom agreed. My dad liked the movie, too; he even paid to watch it on a long flight! That's saying a lot. Anyway, although I could do without the movies about drugs, I think Johnny Depp has been and will be in fine form for years to come. I don't have to mention his past works of brilliancy, so I will just list what we have to look forward to -- "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005)," "Corpse Bride (2005)," "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (2006)," and "Pirates of the Caribbean 3 (2007)." Wow. That's a lot of Johnny Depp. :)

And this leads me to a question: Who do YOU think is the best actor lately? I know only few people read my blog, but a quick answer in the comment box might lead to a very informal and interesting survey. C'mon, just do it. It will be fun! :)

I'll agree with you sa. I don't particularly care for actors and rock stars usually, cause i think their kinda pompus, but J. Depp is a great actor.

So I've been thinking about this since you posted it. I guess it depends on if you count these people in our generation, but I think Tim Robbins, Sean Penn, Gary Sinise and Don Cheadle are up there. But Johnny Depp...yeah. Definitely. Easy on the eyes, too.

This is Margaret (found yours through Lauren, hope you don't mind) and I would have to add Edward Norton to that list, though I wholeheartedly agree with Johnny Depp as #1. Finding Neverland was definitely one of my favorite films of last year.

Johnny is great but has been around for a long time. You know I love him because I used to watch him on 21 Jump Street. I also really like Adam Sandler. Although he may not be considered a great actor, he makes me laugh really hard. I love to laugh.

Of course I'm going to agree on this one; however, there are some close calls. For example, Matt Damon could be good competition. Hmmmm... give Jimmy (fallon) a few years and he could turn out to be another Jim Carey. I have full faith in Jimmy. Jimmy, Matty, Johnny, And let's not forget Tophey. Do I have crushes on all my favorite actors, or are they my favorite actors because I have crushes on them? Whatever, I would let them date me if they asked...that's all that matters.
