Favorite Male Actors of All Time
I was stunned to find this list posted on imdb.com.
But bear in mind I think it was put up there by a single feisty human, and also "favorite" implies a personal like for someone as opposed to a definite feeling that they're masterfully talented.
And it's not a total washout.
It was certainly good to see Marlon Brando at number one and also to come across great character actors like Karl Malden, Jack Lemmon, Dustin Hoffman, and Rod Steiger at various points on the list.
But Ben Affleck at number three?
Tim Allen at number 4?
Richard Dean Anderson (above) at number 5?????
And Jackie Chan on the list at all?
See for yourself.
I'm not just acting--it's true!
