    I wish Saoirse Ronan would win her Oscar soon. My favorite movies of hers are Brooklyn, Atonement, and The Lovely Bones.

    Bob Odenkirk is not a great actor (IMO).

    Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

    He has impressed the hell out of me with each and every movie.

    Jake Gyllenhaal has been nearly as consistent. And his sister is no slouch either.

    There's a lot of talent to choose from, but numero uno has got to be Edward Norton.

    I love Norton. I really do. But for me his 2 best acting performances were last century which is why I had to leave him off my list

    Male: Bryan Cranston
    Female: Tatiana Maslany (Who I fear will never get worthwhile roles worthy of her talent ever again)

    Amazingly, they starred together on Broadway last year in a stage version of Network. How I would’ve loved to have seen that! By the time I knew about it, the limited run was nearly over.

    EDIT: Sam Rockwell is a fine choice too.

    I'd watch anything with Shannon. Better than a million Brad Pitts.
