I didn't think we'd done enough lists on here, so I made another one.

But yeah, I've been thinking for ages, we've done the old "favourite TV show/film" ones and the "favourite TV show/film characters" ones to death, but we've never actually gone about finding out who our favourite actors are. Which to me is nuts, because it seems like an obvious one to do.

As we all know, the only scientific way to find out who we all rate them is, is to have everybody send in a PM and then to score them all and sort them on a top 100 list. Because that's how shit gets done.

So we know how this goes by now, yes? Send up to 20 of your favourite actors/actresses names to me in a PM IN ORDER (good fucking lord, do it in order guys, none of that "oh I just sent 20 names I didn't know they had to be in order" stuff this time around), with number 1 scoring 20 points, 2 scoring 19, ect.

But Oaf, do we vote for who we think are the best, or do we vote for our favourites?

Because I always get asked this question. So I would say, for this, go with "favourite". So like, names that you'd see associated with a movie and think "oh, I wanna see that shit now". But of course, the very reason that somebody is classed amongst your favourite actors may well be because of how damned talented they are. So I'd like to think that, generally speaking, the list should turn out with a pretty good balance between great actors and the likes of Arnie, Sam L Jackson and the likes who aren't exactly oscar winners, but are still bad ass mother fuckers.

So yeah, get those PM's in. I'll set a deadline once PM's start to slow down a bit. Also, this isn't going to be one of those namby pamby lists that takes about 4 months to get through. Once I go, I go, and I'm going to try to keep this going at a good pace with several updates per day.

I could do ten easliy enough, but will wait to see if others want to make bigger lists, as I could do 20 quickly enough also. :D

Aye he's a fine actor. Remember speaking to a lass at college years back and she told me her favourite actor was him and she couldn't believe I knew about him.

Feel like 20 would be more fair - there's a wide range that people can choose from! Plus there are some great actors that I feel will get neglected because people just don't remember their names.

Alright, if people want to do 20 I'm ok upping it to that.

So fine; send up to 20 names. And of course, if people want to do less, they can do so and their number 1 will still receive 20 points, and so on.

Struggling to narrow this list down tbh! Don't know whether to stick to those I like, who I think are the greatest actors or character actors, and those who are the top movie stars in cinema history!

Yeah, it certainly is seeming to prove difficult for a lot of people. Myself included, which is funny as I originally only wanted to let people have 10...

Had a very steady flow of lists in so far. Still no deadline, so feel free to take your time with it to make sure it's right. I'll probably set a deadline at some point after the weekend.

I have 20. But I feel I've missed some people who I'm going to kick myself over. And I don't even know where to start with the ordering.

I'll sit on this for a few days.

Yeah I have a list of 50 or more there that I need to narrow down, and I may yet find others I have forgotten about and I'll be annoyed at myself when I see their names on here!

My favourite actor is John Thaw for his portrayal of Inspector Morse which was class.

Will get back on this tonight and aim for handing in my list by the weekend once I decide which list I'm going to do.

That's what i liked about him he was able to play different roles to a high standard.
I saw him the other night in The Loneliness Of The Long-Distance Runner when he was young and he showed in that the fire that made his presence on screen so watchable. Had good comic timing at times too when needed. A fine actor he was.

Right, it's about time I have a deadline for this. So I'm going to say about a week from now... let's go:

Midday, Friday the 23rd of October.

There we go. A deadline is in place, so if you want to get a list in, it's about damn time you got around to it. And to that person who inevitably doesn't see this post until 12:01 next Friday, and was totally going to get a list in, you suck. You absolutely suck.

Right, have whittled my list to a 20 now, still wish I could have room for some of the others I missed out on! Oh well, I'm pretty settled on them, I know who my #1 is, that's easy, just have to number the rest of them, which isn't so simple!

I submitted a list. I'm not particularly happy with it as it was rushed because Oaf set the deadline way too soon.

Bloody hell, usually when a deadline gets set lists start to flood in, but this time I think I've only had two lists in since I set it.

Just over a day to go, so if you were planning to get a list in for this, now is the time to do it. It's a very close thing at the moment. Not just at the top, but all across it... surprised at how few lists even the top names have appeared on. Don't think anybody has appeared on more than like 4 lists as it stands. Don't think I've ever seen more of a variation in list entries.
