The LMP All-Stars:

You know that one actor that you just love. You spend at least 5 minutes looking through their IMDb profile to see what movies they're in just for for the heads up. You don't even know these people, but you feel like you've been friends forever. Well, here's my list of my favorite 25 actors who just kick ridiculous amounts of ass in any way possible. I call them the LMP All-Stars:

(Actor - Reason for Entry)
Bill Murray - Hilariously dry smartass for the first half of his career, then sad guy
Samuel L. Jackson - Muthafuckin' badass, his wallet confirms it:

Christopher Walken - He's played himself for the past 25 years and gets away with it. How awesome is that?
Michael Caine - Look at how many great movies he's in. Not good, great. It's no coincidence.
Bruce Willis - One minute he's in Die Hard, then Hudson Hawk, then Pulp Fiction. His career's like a cockroach, there's no way you can kill it.
Harrison Ford - He was Han Solo and Indiana Jones, that offsets any horrible movie he will ever make in his life.
Kurt Russell - Watch Escape from New York, then you'll understand why.
Steve Martin - He was in "The Jerk," meaning he has to be here, but he's also one of the funniest people ever, so that helps.
Sean Connery - Not only is he the best Bond ever, but he's Alex Trebek's nemesis.
Jeff Goldblum - One of the more underrated character actors of the past 20 years.
Jason Bateman - If you haven't seen Arrested Development, then go out and rent it on DVD right now. I don't care what time it is.
Owen Wilson - I don't get the hating on this guy, I think he's hilarious and a talented writer (see: every Wes Anderson movie but The Life Aquatic)
Steve Carell - I've liked everything he's ever been in, that's no lie.
Will Ferrell - The funniest man alive.
Jack Nicholson - One of the best actors ever in the '70s and early '80s, then he decided to pull a Walken and play himself in every movie, and he STILL kicks ass.
Mike Myers - Maybe some of his jokes repeat themselves too often and grow old after a while, but Wayne's World and the first 2 Austin Powers movies are still classics. Also, watch his underrated gem So I Married an Axe Murderer, it's pretty funny.
David Cross - Another Arrested Development guy, but he's the best standup comedian around today and he was in Mr. Show, meaning he kicks ass.
Gene Hackman - In one of the best cop movies ever, check. Best supervillain ever, check. Kick ass overall, check.
William Shatner - Captain James T. Kirk of the U.S.S. Enterprise, and that's all anyone needs to know.
Nathan Fillion - The best action/sci-fi hero since Han Solo in Firefly, and he was in that horror/comedy gem Slither. Winner.
Tom Hanks - Sure he's won 2 well deserved Oscars for great movies, but he starred in a movie opposite a dog and was still awesome. Yes, Turner & Hooch is a classic, admit it.
Kevin Spacey - Keyser Soze?
John Goodman - "I mean, say what you like about the tenets of National Socialism, Dude, at least it's an ethos."
Michael J. Fox - Alex P. Keaton AND Marty McFly? You gotta be shittin' me.
Carl Weathers - You name one white person you trust and I will name one black person that I trust even more. I got one: Jesus ...Apollo Creed

Who are yours?

*Female Edition coming soon*

Here's a handful of my LMP All-stars

Christian Bale - possibly my favorite working actor
Robert Downy Jr. - I would gladly trade my own best friend to be his
Bill Murray - He's Bill Murray
Kevin Spacey - Charisma, Charm, fucking amazing acting chops
Leonardo DiCaprio - On his way to being the next "world's greatest actor"

I think you missed Sean Penn. From Fast Times At Ridgemont High (Jeff Spicoli) to Dead Man Walking (Matthew Poncelet) to The Thin Red Line, I Am Sam, Mystic River, The Interpreter,... the list goes on an on.

I like your list... Ford, Willis and Russel are pimp. Russel deserves to be on this list for Big Trouble In Little China as well

2 of mine:

Edward Norton - Cus he fucking kicked ass in Fight Club and American History X

Gary Oldman - For The Proffesional alone:

Stansfield: Bring me everyone.
Benny: What do you mean "everyone"?
Stansfield: EVERYONE!!!!

Screwtape's scabs in case LMP's All-Stars feel that they aren't making enough Schrute Bucks.

George Takei: aka Mr. Sulu
Ricardo Montalban:
(Greatest clip ever)

How come there was no mention of Russell Crowe

GLADIATOR!

Commodus: Rise, rise.
[Maximus stands up, clenching an arrow head in his right hand]
Commodus: Your fame is well deserved, Spaniard. I don't think there's ever been a gladiator to match you. As for this young man, he insists you are Hector reborn. Or was it Hercules? Why doesn't the hero reveal himself and tell us all your real name? You do have a name.
Maximus: My name is Gladiator.
[turns away from Commodus]
Commodus: How dare you show your back to me! Slave, you will remove your helmet and tell me your name.
Maximus: [removes helmet and turns around to face Commodus] My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next.

my favorite part of the movie there Watched it last night (again)




And he was great in The Insider (watch it if you haven't already), Beautiful Mind, L.A. Confidential,...
