    Johnny Depp? Ian McKellan? Morgan Freeman?

    Who do you think is the best actor in movies today? My mom and I are huge (no laughing permitted) Ian Holm fans. A couple of years ago I saw him in The Sweet Hereafter and I was moved by his performance as the lawyer with the druggie daughter in the movie, he added a depth that I never saw in another performance even though most people will remember him as Bilbo Baggins. I heard he's going to play Pope John Paul II in a new movie. I think that's great range in itself. Who else do you think is on par?

    Hmmm... Actually, I agree with the Morgan Freeman vote. Definitely the most talented actor I have seen.

    I don't think I have ever seen him in a movie that flopped, is this a coincidence or just really good script picking?

    Morgan Freeman and Densel Washington

    I think John Travolta is very underrated, and a really good actor. Also, Joaquin Phoenix and Johnny Depp.

    The very best actor though, is Sean Penn, in my opinion.

    Johnny Depp is the greatest actor in the world. Depp is what Brando was.

    Joaquin Phoenix is definitely up there... a VERY believable actor in all the roles I have seen him in.

    Johnny Depp... yep, he is certainly an enigma... but I wouldn't say he is the best actor, for the sole reason it feels like comparing apples to oranges. He is so different.

    I think Gary Oldman deserves some props. Johnny Depp, Ian McKellan, John Hurt, Russell Crowe are all very talented too. Don't forget Daniel Day-Lewis.
