Name an actor you see no matter what he/she is in

In movies, TV, theater, opera

For me it’s Audra MacDonald. Everything she does on stage is just luminous.

Sadly, she makes so much more in TV and movies but they only display a small portion of her talent.

Totally different performances. While not a “hunk” there is also something attractive about him to me. Not sure why, but anyway, great actor.

[quote][R170], you’re thinking of THE LEFTOVERS. Brilliant show in which she deserved an Emmy nod if not a win. She got neither.

No, not The Leftovers, think it was True Detective? I can't remember much of about her character, but she was very disturbing.

The lovely Michael anytime.

Unfortunately his romantic and financial life went haywire and he started appearing trash from 1958 until his demise.

John Lithgow creeps me out with his fawning way of acting, in the way that Stephen Fry did in "Wilde." I can't watch him.

What I admire about John Lithgow is his versatility.

R183 I thought his performance as Lou in Brand New Cherry Flavor was excellent. He really managed to combine sleaze and venality with pathos. To the point where there were moments where I found myself almost feeling bad for this Beverly Hills asshole. Not many actors can pull that off.

I may be getting old, blasé and cynical but I can't name an actor nowadays I want to see no matter what he's is in.

All the riveting actors are well and truly dead. I thought Daniel Day Lewis was the last of the riveting actors.

R203, DDL is extraordinary. But there are a number of actors who I love to watch because they're always interesting, and sometimes it is pure entertainment.

R167, R195, I'd hardly call Natalie Wood an actor. She was a personality, but couldn't act her way out of a paper bag. Incapable of showing any emotion in a natural way. Hence her win for 1966's Harvard Lampoon Worst Actor of the Year.

She WAS however, an excellent beard!

R208, How do you explain her three(3) Academy Award nominations?

by Anonymousreply 211October 15, 2021 7:17 AM

R211 I'm not 208 but I would suggest Wood was nominated by the morons of Hollywood.

Wood was very good at playing hysterical adolescents but I would suggest that was borne about by being abused by abusive directors who would work her into a state of hysteria.

When given a script with rich characterizations and a strong director to help mold her, Natalie could be very, very good: Rebel Without a Cause, The Searchers, Splendor in the Grass, West Side Story, Gypsy, Love with the Proper Stranger, Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice, all solid performances.

Yes, r216. The bigger question is how did Native Americans in the 1870s get their hands on Max Factor makeup?

R217 OMG, didn't you know it was created by indigenous two-spirit people! Max Factor, a WHITE man, stole it from the Two-Spirit and made it into a tool of oppression against women and queers.

Wood wasn't an actress. She misbehaved in front of a camera.

John Saxon.

He made a lot of craptastic movies, but if I see he's in the cast...I'll tune in anyway. Just to see a younger or older version of this:

I have seen most movies Topher Grace is in. I'm watching that new show he's in on ABC, even though it's pretty awful. I've watched every episode of That '70s Show at least twice.
