i need to precise it: Who is the best (talentwise) among these Actors working in their prime. I mean the post-actors studio-generation (Brando to De Niro) who started their Career in the 80s.
For a few months there was an articel going around here, which sat that DDL, Penn and Washington were the only Actors today who can carry a film alone. I like to add Hanks, my favorite of this Generation, and to make it five Pitt who are underrated among us critics
I will do a poll for other generations later on
Of these, close call between Day-Lewis and Penn. I choose Day-Lewis. Big fan of Pitt’s. Didn’t really consider Washington for my vote and wouldn’t ever even think for a second about Hanks for this title!
You cant really put Brad Pitt and Denzel Wasington on a list with the other 3 actors..
My choice is Day-Lewis of course…followed closely by none of the others..
Hanks is one of the most overrated working actors – the only performance of his I actually like is Cast Away and the Toy Story films.
Day-Lewis, Penn and Washington are all remarkable.
Others not on the list: Al Pacino, Leonardo DiCaprio, Javier Bardem, Joaquin Phoenix, Morgan Freeman, Ian McKellen, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Christoph Waltz, Samuel L. Jackson and Ed Harris
