    I nominate:
    Charlie Sheen
    Nicolas Cage
    Angie Dickinson as not that good

    I wouldn't even call these actors--they just read lines:
    Patrick Swayze
    in Roadhouse and Steel Dawn he was terrible
    Arnie Schwarzeneggar

    Robert Downey Jr. I like him. But he always plays himself.

    Gweneth Paltrow talks through her nose.

    Actually there really aren't very many good actors/actresses in Hollywood.

    ..I don't watch too many of the new movies, so I don't know the actors/actresses too well
    ...maybe it's like a lot of things, people were ''better'' in the old days...?

    You nailed it with Nicholas Cage. He plays the same guy in every movie. Himself...

    ...but sometimes SFX make the movies look ridiculous--Pearl Harbor was horrendous with the SFX
    ..and Ben Affleck is not that good
    then they had nuclear carriers in the movie!!

    Nicholas Cage in the movie Con Air had the most egregious southern accent in the history of cinema. .... :cuckoo:

    But that's kind of the problem. A truly good actor would be one who can completely disappear into the role.

    For instance, when they did that OJ Series last year, and John Travolta played the role of Robert Shapiro, he completely disappeared into the role,to where I had to remind myself, that's John Travolta

    But when an actor becomes a name actor, you expect him to play his signature character.
