I know I've kept some of you waiting for far too long for this latest installment of "Top 100 Actors of the Aughts". For those who have been on pins and needles... try waiting on something softer next time --how about Cillian Murphy's lips?
Anyway I digress--it's so easy for the mind to wander with some of these actors around --Tom Wilkinson. How about that performance in In the Bedroom. Probably shoulda won the Oscar, non? Meanwhile Cillian Murphy has the honor of being the most recent arrival to the movies with the highest placement on this list. That's because he's a memorable actor and he works. A lot. He works the camera too.
Enjoy. Then return and discuss.
P.S. #1 In the poll that just wrapped, Heath Ledger pulled out the win but Crowe and Penn will also be joining him advancing to the next round because of their percentages of votes. Stay tuned. It all wraps up in June.
P.S. #2 I just realized that there's no corresponding readers-ranking for the twin Top 100 Actress countdown. I like the lists in pairs to match, so we're going to barrel through the voting for the Actresses in very quick rounds. So go and vote now on the first of three rounds.
