21 favorite male film stars

So I've been inspired by my friend Kelsy's blog to make a list of my favorite actors. I could go into depth explaining my "history" with all these people and their films, but I'll try not to bore anyone and simply state that some of these men are my favorites more for their comedy than their acting, or more for their looks, etc. It varies....honorable mention goes to Humphrey Bogart, Harrison Ford, Gene Wilder, Anthony Hopkins and others I will think of later. Enjoy the randomness.

Jimmy Stewart

Steve Martin

Robert Downey Jr.

Leonardo DiCaprio

Tom Hanks

(Young) Mel Gibson

Marty Feldman

Peter Lorre

Jeremy Northam

Javier Bardem

Gregory Peck

Gene Hackman

Stephen Fry

Clark Gable

Ewan McGregor

Daniel Day-Lewis

Cary Grant

Fred Astaire

Alan Rickman

Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Bill Nighy

Yes! I'm a new fan to Joseph. Grant, Jimmy Stewart, and Gregory Peck are definitely all-time faves. They're just so well-rounded...

stephen fry is hilarious. but i'd add hugh laurie to the mix. i loved him in jeeves & wooster and black adder. hmmm, this list has got me thinking about who i should put on mine...;-)
btw, i love all the images you chose for each actor. most of them are new to me, which is nice for a change.

Thanks. Yeah, it was really a coincidence at first that I kept choosing black and white pictures. Hugh Laurie is definitely lovable too. I still haven't seen Jeeves and Wooster but I need to. : )
