I can watch just about anything with Mitchum, Matthau, Gable, William Powell, DeNiro, or Bill Murray.

That's not to leave out any other greats, but those guys are top box office draws for me.

Then there's Warren Oates, James Coburn, James Garner, and a host of others that can carry a good film.

What's sad these days is that there aren't as many of the ensemble movies utilizing several big names at once.

About the last really all big name cast film that I saw and enjoyed was "Glengarry Glen Ross". Stellar performances all around with major leaguers in all the roles. Even Alec Baldwin proved he can turn in a great performance in that one, and I only recently learned that Mamet didn't include that particular character in the play.

Oh, and Joe Pesci, where would Scorcese be without Pesci?
Al Pacino
Nick Nolte
Dan Ackroyd
Robert De Niro
Bill Murray
Joe Pesci
M. Emmett Walsh
Harry Dean Stanton

Robert Duvall

Elijah Wood
Johnny Depp
Jared Leto
Winona Ryder
G.J. Echternkamp

Nathalie Portman
My favorite actors are Harvey Keitel, good old Cuckoo Jack (a.k.a. Nicholson, LOL), and Christopher Lloyd. Sometimes, I am really into DeNiro's work; but there are other times when I think he can be a little overrated in certain films. I also am a horror buff with a lot of respect for the late Bela Lugosi.

My favorite actresses are Jennifer Connelly and Drew Barrymore from the younger generation, and Ruth Gordon from the golden age. I also really liked Tammy Blanchard in "The Good Shepherd"- she played the disabled lover of the protagonist, if you have not seen it. I would like to see more films with her; I think she could be really versatile & intense if given some more central roles.
Johnny Depp
Daniel Day Lewis
Robert DeNiro
Phillip S. Hoffman
John Goodman
Jack Nicholson
Bill Murray
Julianne Moore

These are my favorites but I could go on forever with actors that I think are talented.
