"Applause begets applause in the theatre, as laughter begets laughter and tears beget tears." CLAYTON HAMILTON, "Theory of the Theatre" "I think theater ought to be theatrical ... you know, shuffling the pack in different ways so that it's -- there's always some kind of ambush involved in the experience. You're being ambushed by an unexpected word, or by an elephant falling out of the cupboard, whatever it is." TOM STOPPARD

Josh Hartnett belongs on a different thread, titled "Actors who are only cast because they're pretty and are so bad that it hurts you."
Nothing precious, plain to see, don't make a fuss over me. Not loud, not soft, but somewhere inbetween. Say sorry, just let it be the word you mean.

Hugh Jackman, who actually gets enough work but not enough that involves material that's halfway decent. I've watched way too many movies where he's the only interesting thing on screen.

And Orlando Bloom needs to get on your list, popcultureboy. As of yesterday.

Oh yes. Orlando Bloom is SO on that list, Plum. He got away with it in the LOTR trilogy but has been appallingly bad in everything since.

Cher is one of the most natural actresses working in film today. I would love to see her in more films.

Oh redhot - I'll do many things for snickerdoodles - you found my weakness. Sign me up as a redhotshill!
I sing for myself. I sing when I want, whenever I want to, just for me. I sing for my own pleasure. Do you understand that?
