In your opinion, who is the worst/most overrated actor?

We had to watch 'Little Buddha' recently for english, and it dawned on me just how awful Keanu Reeves is. If you disagree, please, please, please watch this movie. He is simply horrible, and to think he is an A-list actor that makes millions for each movie he stars in, I just don't understand how people can like him.

Here are some others:

1. Nicholas Cage - wooden and awful
2. Brendan Fraser - I have yet to meet someone who thinks he is a good actor
3. George Clooney


Who are the actors you think are awful?

I'd say Will Ferrel, and Christopher Walken
(Hence "More Cowbell")

It's a funny skit, but the acting is bad, and I just don't like Will Ferrel.

Ed Norton is a fantastic actor, as is Alan Rickman. Also Rowan Atkinson and Jason Lee.

Overrated = Tom Cruise and anyone who was in or is affiliated with Friends.

I have to say that George Clooney and Tom Cruise are both good actors.

Nicholas Cage is pretty bad in about half his movies, but he does have redeeming roles.
Brendan Fraser is clearly one of the worst actors ever.
Keanu Reeves is also garbage.

Kevin Costner

Dances with wolves was good, but everything else he has ever done has sucked.

Seen it. You can't think he's that bad for one shitty movie. Watch "Lord of War".

if you think Nicholas Cage is rubbish, watch next, or lord of war. i think he's quite good. you have to remember that with most these actors it's not always them acting bad, it's just that they have less interesting or impressive characters.

Keannu Reaves is overrated in that people actually call the man an actor. Thank god everything else about the Matrix was amazing, even his wooden acting couldn't ruin it.

Ben Affleck is one of the more overrated actors as well.

Field of Dreams was a good movie, because even Kevin Costner's awful performance couldn't ruin that script.

I'm not a fan of Field of Dreams, but his performance in Bull Durham is enough to validate him as an actor imo.

Who are the actors you think are awful?

I wasn't a fan of Nicholas Cage until I saw Adaptation (one of my favourite movies of all time). He was great in Matchstick Men as well. I just think he doesn't suit the conventional leading man roles.

I've also never had a problem with Brendan Fraser. Having said that, I've never seen the Mummy...which I'm guessing is what most people are judging him on.

If you don't like George Clooney, watch O Brother Where Art Thou. Great movie and Clooney does well in his role.


Anyway, time for my list:

1) Drew Barrymore: She comes across as ditzy in every single role she plays...and even when she does play this type of role, she doesn't have the looks to pull it off in my opinion haha.

2) Keanu Reeves: Nicholas Cage is wooden?

3) Kevin Spacey: I'm going to get killed for this one. His mannerisms really annoy me. It's a personal thing I guess. I didn't mind him so much in American Beauty...although that was more because I liked his character. Then again I thought Annette Bening stole the spotlight with her performance. Unfortunately the movie was ruined for me by Thora Birch and Wes Bentley who played two annoyingly pretentious and naive teenagers. I think I'm alone on this one though.

4) Steve Carell: I feel like this one shouldn't need explaining.

People are confusing acting ability with movie roles. Nicholas Cage may have been too stupid to turn down Ghost Rider, but that doesn't make him a bad actor.

Kevin Costner isn't a bad actor, in fact he's a good actor. He simply hasn't had a good movie in some time. He certainly isn't overrated, that's for sure. It's become sort of a fad to simply say he's a bad actor, simply because he's been in so many bad movies.

He's actually pretty good in the first two. I haven't seen the newest one but I'm sure it sucked.

I like pretty much all actors. I think Zach Braff can be lame sometimes but he's still a great visionary.

I think that Keanu Reeves isn't a good actor for anything other than the Bill & Ted Movies. I think that Jennifer Garner is incredibly bland and so is Gwyneth Paltrow. I don't like Will Ferrel as an actor either.

Yeah, she's a bit wooden. Her expression never changes! And she's thinner than me.

I find Daniel Radcliffe rather wooden and boring. Also, Emma Watson tends to over-act.

I didn't get to see it but I heard great things about his performance in Equus. He was good in Extras as well.

Harry Potter he sucked, but anyone would look bad when you're up against Alan Rickman and Richard Griffiths...

Brendan Fraser & Nicholas Cage imo. Leonardo DeCaprio annoys the hell out of me as well, though I don't necessarily think he's that bad of an actor.
The Rock has to be the best actor around at the moment though. I'm pretty sure Doom blew the world away.
