Most Lovable Film Actors
Submitted by lukeprog on Wed, 06/23/2004 - 07:26
- Actors considered through their roles, not their personal attributes. I'm not making a list for women because the likes of Pamela Anderson, Jenna Jameson, and Carmen Electra would top the list no matter what their roles or acting ability.
- Harrison Ford - whatever you feel about the man now, his six turns as two of the most beloved movie characters ever (Indiana Jones and Han Solo) have immortalized him.
- Cary Grant - Mr. Charm. Mr. Class. Mr. Handsome. Call him what you want, no one can resist Mr. Grant.
- Sean Connery - I'm not a big fan of the James Bond series myself, but he does have lots of fans as the most charming and memorable bond ever. And he continues to turn out sympathetic but cool roles in movies like The Hunt for Red October and The Rock.
- Charlie Chaplin - The king of physical comedy always keeps you laughing.
- James Stewart - more great roles in classic masterpieces than anyone I can think of, James Stewart is an icon. He is infectious.
- Humphrey Bogart - A man's man through and through, yet still sympathetic, even when he's being a bit of a jerk (The African Queen). A legend.
- The Marx Brothers - the kings of comedy in the sound era, they kept everyone laughing after Chaplin was gone.
- Peter Sellers - Detective Clouseau himself was funny, endearing, and off-balance in a variety of roles from 1964 (Dr. Strangelove) to 1982 (Trail of the Pink Panther).
- Fred Astair - the king of class through the 40s and 50s.
- Steve Zahn - a personal favorite. I'll see any movie with this guy in it - he's just so fun to watch.
- Audrey Hepburn - always lovable at every moment. So... cute!
