Actors/Actress that will always be in your good books?

I started an opposite thread 2 years ago with Most Terrible Actors, which garnered some decent discussion. I'm hoping to go the other way around this time.

So the question is:
Which actor or actress will always be in your good books, which you will continue to follow their work no matter what film they find themselves in nowadays; and if possible, name that film that won you over.


Bonus for lesser known names. What I'm hoping to get out of this is that I (or others) get to dig up said movies; maybe give said actor or film a chance; and perhaps pay a little more attention at other great actors (that is currently not on my, or others' radar).


Of course, I'll start:

1) Eddie Redmayne - (Pillars of the Earth) This guy plays creepy characters now such as the ones in Savage Grace, Hick, Black Death, but will forever be in my good books because of his work at Pillars.

2) Andrew Garfield - (Boy A) Just became a big name now but I was aware of his work back with Boy A

3) Saoirse Ronan - (Death Defying Acts)

4) Tom Hardy - (Bronson) Tom Hardy got on my radar with RocknRolla, and Warrior but Bronson is what really won me over

5) Ben Foster

6) Colin Farrell - (In Bruges)

7) David Kross - (The Reader)



As you see, I'm already guilty of it so please feel free to make it lengthy if you want. The more films/actors in the mix, the better.

It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

But other than that I have seen every car on display in DTP just by cruising about in Richmond, thank you very much for collecting them together and get someone to sing a cover for "fuck you".

Pretty much any movie these guys are in...I'm there. Movies listed are what made me fall for them even more.

Tom Hanks: You Got Mail, Forrest Gump, although I had this huge sense of creepiness from him in Splash when the chick says she's taking a bath (but really her tail came back and was figuring out how to change back her legs) and he goes "oh..can I join you?" or something.

Richard Gere: Pretty Woman, Unfaithful (felt SO bad for him)
Denzel Washington: Fallen.
Jamie Foxx
Drew Barrymore (sorry..I just love her)

Hahaha, I was hoping for some guilty pleasures to come out as well.


I'll try to match. As for mine:

Nicolas Cage: (Face Off) I know he gets a lot of hate around here but his earlier work will always have me watching whatever he puts out. To me the guy is sooooo good that even when he's bad, it's still entertaining in some way or another. lol.

Tom Hanks and Leonardo DiCaprio for sure, I don't care what they are selling - I'm buying! I will probably get flamed for this but I enjoy Daniel Craig, I think he's a good Bond, but I thought he did a really good job in Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
