I was thinking about it with Heath Ledger's death, who are people favorite actors.  I think mine might be Hugh Jackman, though I like Joaquin Phoenix, Ian McKellen, and there are a few others.
I see the world Lucius Hunt, just not the way you see it.

My man of the moment would be Christian Bale.

I first noticed him in American Psycho, and he was pretty good in Shaft.  Equilibrium was an awesome film in its own right (even if it was not exactly original) and in The Prestige he again pulls out an enthralling performance.  But The Machinist is an almost Oscar winning performance for me, especially the physical trauma he went through for the part, and in Batman Begins he does a great job of portraying Bruce Wayne/Batman in a schizophrenic skew.

Yea, he is a really good actor.  Still though doesn't quite make it up there for me.  Maybe with his performance in The Dark Knight he will.  He has a history of bulking up and slimming down for roles, like The Machinist, then Batman Begins, then slimming down to ridiculous lengths for Rescue Dawn, then bulking up again for The Dark Knight.

That's a good list, lots of A list actors, also older more mature actors.

Christian Bale is my #1. He's very underrated, and I just don't understand why. Give this man an Oscar! Oh, and Mark Wahlberg is another favorite...I can't really think of many right now, so I'll probably come back to this.

How in the world did I forget about him, he's one of my favorite actors.  Another really good actor, who I've only seen in a few films, is Brian Cox.

Yea, he's really good.  Incredibly veratile, he needs to win some awards.  Still, he is one of the most popular actors in Hollywood.

Woops, forgot to put that on there.  He is just such a good actor, and sometimes, like in the Ocean's movies, he kind of got overshadowed by all the other top of the line actors.  I think he'll get them, it's just a matter of time.
