Hey guys! I guess it's about time that I cranked out another article (Although, i should be doing homework right now)!

I'm a sucker for movies and was considering making at first a top 10 movie list but I have trouble comparing the classics to modern day films.

So I decided to settle upon my favorite actors-




I created my list based on the impressions that the famous movie actors have made on my life, not just their acting ability alone.


AND HERE WE GO...







5. HEATH LEDGER



Let me preface by saying that I was a fan of Heath Ledger LONG before his portrayal of the Joker and his unfortunate demise.

It was his earlier roles like in Ten Things I Hate About You and the Patriot that made me appreciate him. He had a natural charm and optimism about him. Heath seemed like somebody who would be a great friend.

In my junior year of High School, I wrote a 150+ page unfinished novel and the main character was meant to be played by Heath Ledger if the book ever became a movie. (I plan on creating an article about the history of my writing in the near future).



Heath was a power personality who alone could uplift not so great movies (The Order, A Knight's Tale) and make them enjoyable.











4. ERROL FLYNN



Errol Flynn was the embodiment of a true gentlemen. He always seemed refined whether he was on the deck of a pirate ship or leading a charge in the Crimean War.

Errol Flynn swooned ladies with his boyish smile and neatly trimmed mustache while dishing out enough swordplay to keep everyone interested.


Nobody will ever play a better Robin Hood than him.

He was the true testament of elegance and grace. If there ever was an end of chivalry, it died with Errol Flynn.











3. RYAN REYNOLDS



Yes, Ryan Reynolds, but let me explain!

I was a fan of him even before he started making movies. I knew him from a TV show called Two guys, A Girl, and a Pizza Place. He was funny and his romantic misadventures made the entire show.

I like Ryan Reynolds because I "followed" him from no-name status to superstar. He's also been somewhat of a role model for me. I wish I could trade places with him.lol

There has been some Ryan Reynolds overexposure in the media, but with landing such franchises as Green Lantern and Deadpool, his future looks brighter than ever.













2. HUMPHREY BOGART



Bogie has delivered some of the finest acting and sharpest dialogue to ever grace a movie screen. He is simply brilliant in all of his films. I'd go as far to say that he even pioneered the film noir genre.

He added a high level of sophistication to his roles. Bogart's films were all thinking man's movies meant for grownups- Casablanca is a perfect example.

Bogart represents a time, before special effects, when movie studios actually cared about the quality of scripts and tried to create something magnificent.














AND NOW FOR MY FAVORITE ACTOR....









HE IS A GOD OF A MAN...









A FATHER FIGURE TO ME...









A SLAYER OF ROBOTS, ALIENS, AND COUNTLESS UNNAMED ASSAILANTS...


















1. ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER





During the late 80's and 90's, Arnold was the most bad ass man on the planet. He had a perfect one-liner after every action packed segment of his movies.





As a kid, I thought that Arnold was the greatest thing since sliced bread. It was as if he had descended from the gods, a living breathing Hercules in the real world.

After lifting his way to fame out of Austria and marrying into the Kennedy family, Arnold is living proof of the American dream.





It sounds childish, but I can't really explain my emotional admiration for him. (My mom met him at an airport in the 80's). I guess after 20 years of looking up to him, Arnold has truly become a legitimate father figure and role model in my life.

I would really like to shake his burly hand and thank him for pretty much just being awesome!
