Yeah, I thought about listing Mifune, too. Anybody who can jump from playing Kikiuchiyo (sp?) in Seven Samurai to the title character in Red Beard(or, for that matter, his character in High and Low) has got some motherfuckin' range

I would also put Tadanobu Asano on the list. I mean the dude went from Ichi the Killer to Shark Skin Man and Peach Hip Girl to Survive Style 5+ to playing Genghis Khan in Mongol. He's like the Japanese Johnny Depp with the range he enforces.

One thing that's just occurred to me:

How the FUCK has no one yet mentioned Clint Eastwood? The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly is easily the greatest western ever made, Escape From Alcatraz is in the top 5 prison break movies of all time, In the Line of Fire's a fucking classic, and the list goes on and on. Hell, the guy made two movies co-starring an orangutan and, against all odds, they turned out great. Name me one other actor who could've done that.

\Besides Toshiro Mifune.

Laughing I mentioned Clint originally. I love him. He's still got it. Gran Torino was pretty damn good.

Gentlemen, I think the answer to the question "who's the world's greatest actor" is elementary:

Right on. "The Getaway" is the best of his work.

As for my favorite dramatic actor, it begins with Henry and ends with Fonda.

12 Angry Men, bitches.

Gary Daniels is my favorite actor of all time....

But on a serious note.....Clint Eastwood has been mentioned before, and he is great.....I also think Kevin Bacon is underrated...
