Tom Hanks is an amazingly talented actor. Well-rounded and imaginative, he has done more for the film industry in the last few decades than many that have tried. I.wonder if he just picks great roles, or does he make a movie great?V 16 Comments
I absolutely find Leonardo DiCaprio very talented and cute. He's now older but he still has all that talent. He's a wonderful person in so many ways. The way he surges for the environment. I've watched some his recent movies.

A Few Good Men and Mission Impossible were two of the greatest movies of the '90s. He made them very dramatic and interesting.
His personality exudes out any character he plays. It gives the the feeling of optimistic and joyfulness

Brad Pitt is one of the best actors in History. He is just awesome. Really enjoyed Joe Black, Seven Years in Tibet, Sleepers and my favorite is Legends of the Fall. He should be right up their at the top. You can just see what a great person he is and his beautiful wife Angelina. You can see what a great person he is if you go to New Orleans, you may see him. Helping the people from Hurricane Katrina.
Brad Pitt is one famous actor and deserves all of the credit he gets..He is terrific.

The Rocky series revolutionized the world for the better, and I also love Creed.

The perfect Bond for the 90s and many other great performances outside of the franchise like The Thomas Crown affair, Dante's peak and The Tailor of Panama. - Szonana
His best film of James Bond was a prestigious performanceV 1 Comment
I was hesitant to see Primal Fear until I saw Norton's incredible performance. And Fight Club remains to be one of my favorite movies of all time. He does everything well, and that's pretty much a must-do for actors. Most of the actors on this list are incredible, but Edward Norton should be higher up.
American History X, Primal Fear, Fight Club.3 of my favourite films of the 90's. Should have won at least 1 oscar if not 2.
Surprised to see Edward this low. His performance in American History X was Oscar worthy and Fight Club was great. As the first comment stated, I also wonder what he has been up to. I haven't seen him in many Hollywood movies since his heyday in the late 90s.
Nails every role. He's brilliant.V 2 Comments
