I am going to be very interested to see how many modern day actors make the cut. Who from today's film or theater world inspires the acting creatives here on Stage 32.
BENSONHURST- Given the 'MODERN DAY ACTORS' parameters here is my "adjusted 5" 1)Leonardo DiCaprio 2)Jamie Foxx 3)Johnny Depp 4)Matt Damon 5)Benedict Cumberbatch. CANARSIE OUT
I can't say about acting yet but since being a stand up comic I got to say Gene Wilder, Robin Williams, Richard Pryor, Leslie Neilsen and Will Ferrell.
Vanar- You are doubling down with 10 favs! Cool you must be from Vegas, Baby!
@R.B Tom Hardy, Leonardo Dicaprio, Jake Gyllenhaal, Johnny Depp (Pirates of the Caribbean), Michael Shannon
Steven Harris Anzelowitz Vanar Jaddou Madeline Romine Richard "RB" Botto Christopher Trastoy GREAT ANSWERS! I love how everyone has such a unique and clever mix of talent they look up to!
Stephen- How did you do that blue type link thing?
I can answer that. See Steven, just put the (@) sign next to the name of the person and it's like you are talking directly to them. I think it's great that Stage 32 has that option now.
Richard Gustason thank you! I love this new feature!
Thank you Stephen Foster let's see if it works!
Cool! my hats off to Tomasz in Stage 32 IT
Hi Stephen, there's something about Jack Nickolson's deliveries that give me goose bumps every time. I second Richard's answer about Robin Williams, Vanar's Brando, Christopher's Hardy... what, no one said I could steal ideas. I can also see a lot of Leslie Jordan in your delivery. That's a really cool commercial.
Most credit for the mentions goes to Julie Zhou - know that we're constantly improving and adjusting the features to make everything just perfect.
Ha ha, the @ symbol trick seems so old school when we had to do it back in the day with Facebook.
Mark Rylance, Michael Shannon, William H Macy, Sandra Bullock and Jennifer Lawrence. Hard to choose only 5!
I measure an actor's skill in how they hold the long pauses...and you feel the Electra of the character...Mark Rylance, Alan Rickman, for starters ..
Edward Norton, Viggo Mortenson, Sandra Bullock, Reese Witherspoon, and Julia Roberts. #ibowdown

I'm no actress, but my mentors would be Meryl Streep, Maggie Smith, Helen Mirren and Vivien Leigh, because of their commanding presence on screen.
