    Mine is Dustin Hoffman.  A bit old school?  Yeah.  He thrills me.  There’s a particular femininity to his persona and work that I love.  When I say ‘femininity’, I don’t mean to say that he’s literally feminine – though Tootsie did prove he could do that, too – but that there’s a particular vulnerability to him that’s usually associated with women.

    I remember watching the making of Tootsie and he was going on about how being a woman changed him and about how he realized that he would never be a beautiful woman and therefore he would always be shunned by the men and even some of the women, and suddenly, mid-interview, he started tearing up and crying.  If you watch the interview, you can tell it was something that touched and pained him deeply.  I think I fell in love with him right then and there.

    I love his spontaneity, his brilliant comedic skills and, of course, his ability to break your heart.  The Graduate, Midnight Cowboy (I ball every time), Marathon Man, Kramer vs. Kramer, Tootsie, Rain Man, Moonlight Mile, – I can seriously go on and on.

    It also doesn’t help that he’s a cutie patutie.

    Now you.

    P.S.  Though I’m thrilled for Michael Douglas and am sure he’ll be winning an Emmy for playihg Liberace, I think Hoffman would’ve been spectacular, too.

    Cary Grant.

    More specificlly 30’s/40’s screwball Cary Grant. What he does is so complicted but he makes it look so easy.

    I don’t think drama was his forte (Indeed he was quite bad in both his Oscar nominated perfomances).

    Harrison Ford. Almost all energy is focused on his star quality and never his ability to be a natural actor. Unfussy in his approach to performance and I love him. He’s good looking without seeing how good looking he is. I can watch him in anything and receive some enjoyment from it. 
     
    Tim Robbins. If he’s good enough for Susan Sarandon and Morgan Freeman to fall in love with, I’ll be the first to have sloppy thirds.

    My personal favorite is Al Pacino. His recent film career has been less than noteworthy (what chain of events led to him ending up in Jack and Jill?) but his film career overall speaks for itself. His recent appearances on television (Phil Spector, You Don’t Know Jack and especially Angels in America) have been terrific, and he absolutely blew me away on the stage in The Merchant of Venice, for which he should have won the Tony, completing his EGOT.

    He will be playing a washed up rockstar in Dan Fogelman’s Imagine, and will be returning to crime drama in Gotti: In the Shadow of My Father, both due out in 2014. Hopefully he can make a huge comeback. It was also announced a while ago that he would be playing King Lear in a film adaptation, though this now seems to be in development hell.

    Also a fan of Daniel Day-Lewis, Jack Nicholson, Leo DiCaprio, Joaquin Phoenix, Robert De Niro, Kevin Spacey, Dustin Hoffman, Ed Harris, Denzel Washington, Ian McKellen, Samuel L. Jackson, Christoph Waltz – and from the past – Marlon Brando, Jack Lemmon, Roy Scheider and Paul Newman.
