    I'd have to nominate George Clooney for that one. I don't know what it is - maybe his monotonous voice - but IMO he has no screen presence whatsoever. Maybe not the worst actor, but certainly one of the most overrated. :)

    But then again, I thought Heartbeat was a classic. :D

    Don't know if I'll be able to say his name as the thought of his acting (for want of a better word) causes me countless sleepless nights.

    The man I love to hate 'Hugh Grant'.

    Theres bound to be more, so I'll add them in l8r :)

    Quentin Tarantino would never get an acting role in a film if it was on acting ability alone.

    Nick Berry isn't bad as long as he sticks to the one role that he can play as even he admits that "he doesn't do range"

    Huge Grunt is also a one role actor who you either love or hate and my nominations for most wooden actors are :-

    Val Kilmer
    Keanu Reeves
    Heath Ledger

    Having foolishly bought 'Driven', Stallone has to be a major contender.

    I'm fed up of watching DeNero pulling his mush:( he has become a caricature of himself.

    I'm not saying he's a bad actor,he's made some class films. But not many in the last 5 years

    agreed - for 99% of his films, he doesent need to even be an actor. But check out his part in 'Copland' - proves the guy can turn in a decent performance, given half the chance.

    btw - dont know if this thread includes female 'actors', but having watched a half-hour of 'Bedazzled' last night, my vote currently goes to Liz Hurley - i've seen better porn acting than that :).

    Before i worked for myself, I worked with les's (Bruce Jones) brother once, "we don't get on" he would say. Well there was a story about it in one of the Tabloids, with a headline like "les brother on breadline" It had a pic of him eating out of a can of beans!!!! He was skint compared to his brother, but hardly on the bread line. Anyway he got loads of stick about it-and i mean loads:p Cut-out's of baked been cans shoved in his coat the lot,he never lasted long after that. He said he was stitched up :rolleyes: How the hell did they get pic of him eating beans:rolleyes:

    Have to agree on Keanu Reeves, and would like to propose Chris ODonnel for this award.

    IMHO there is now a clear definition between film actors and film stars. A number of so called bankable film stars are very bad actors/actresses.

    Tom Cruise, Julia Roberts i think best illustrate my point.

    And God Forbid any of them have ever, or will ever make a major film, may i also nominate the whole cast of Eastenders.

    Let me get this right. If an actor is able to plant bums on seats he can't act? Weird logic.

    Also, if you think Cruise is not a good actor, you don't know what you're talking about as with each passing role the guy just seems to get better.

    Chip
    PS (Now if you named Vinnie Jones, I would have agreed)

    I can see the point you are making, for instance Arnie would not class himself as a great actor but use to put bums on seats, John Hurt for example is a superior actor but would not put bums on seats.

    By the way I think Julia Roberts is over rated.

    I knew my previous post might be contentious , and would like to thank Garret for illustrating my point better than i did originally.


    My opinion is just that, my opinion, as valid as anyone who wants to contribute to the debate. Just because we don`t all agree it doesn`t mean some of us don`t know what we`re talking about.

    I will admit that i have not seen Rainman but if the consensus is that Cruise was great in this will give it a look and see if i need to revise my opinion

    Chip yes Vinnie Jones is a bad actor, but I couldn`t use him to make my point as I don`t think he puts bums on seats.

    I’m usually bad at picking accents up, but is his accent from the Manchester region?
    Also Sean does not do accents.

    Sozzled, Barry Norman told Cruise he thought, he put in a better performance in Rainman them Hoffman (or was he sucking up to him?)

    Manchester (the city) itself is not that big( about 5x5 miles) but greater manchester is is very BIG. If you live in manchester city, you'll have have a manc accent (Oasis style). the rest aint nothing to do with us eg Bolton, oldam ashton etc etc. All the 99% in corry are nothing to do with manchester, the kid included- but greater mancheste(plastic mancs)., There as much mancs, as people from watford are cocknys:rolleyes:

    I definitely agree with Van Damme. What about Eric Roberts? Or the Baldwins?

    Eric Roberts, jeez.

    Funniest thing I've read in a while (and I don't even particularly like the woman myself) was him slating Julia Roberts for winning her Oscar for 'Erin Brockowitz' and saying 'What did she do, wear a push up bra?'.

    Maybe she should get acting lessons from her massively talented brother, who, incidentally, is a bigger tit that anything Wonderbra could conjure up from Miss Roberts' chest.

    I'd like to nominate steven segal, utter ****e! I was very pleased to see him killed off early in exrcutive decision.
    I think there are to many bad actors about, we should have awards for different types of bad actor.

    I'd give steven segal the title
    Give Keanu the title for lack of voice/accents award
    Leonardo the title for most pointless excuse for an actor
    And the life time achievement award to Trevor Eve of shoestring fame.

    Anyone else think of any awards, for our most hated.
