1. Noomi Rapace
You may have seen her in Prometheus, Sherlock Holmes, or the Swedish version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo - but if you haven’t, you’re going to want to educate yourself on Noomi Rapace. See her insane battle for redemption in the upcoming movie, Dead Man Down - starring Noomi and Colin Farrell.
2. Jim Carrey
We all know that Jim can play the wacky character well. We also know that he can do drama, too. But how do we remember him most fondly? Talking through his butt cheeks, obviously.
3. Morgan Freeman
He’s older, and he’s wise. When he talks, you listen. You’ve probably heard more Morgan Freeman voiceovers than you realize. It’s because he’s so convincing.
4. Will Ferrell
He redefined Saturday Night Live when he was a cast member, and he helped redefine comedy when he hit the big screen. You recognize his style in every character he plays, and yet it doesn’t feel overplayed. He’s found some rare comedic sweet spot, and he’s riding it.
5. Cameron Diaz
Always sweet, always funny, usually with an edge. What does that mean? Don’t know. But we like it, and so do you, probably.
6. Michael Cera
As an awkward yet lovable child on Arrested Development, he grew up to be, well, and awkward yet lovable adult. Watch him mumble and side-glance, and be happier for it.
7. Meryl Streep
Meryl is a vessel. She’s said it herself. And while her roles are extremely varied, she seems to have found a stride in portraying women who have actually existed. And, come on. It’s goddamned Meryl.
8. Samuel L. Jackson
Almost couldn’t fit all of Sam’s like-roles in one frame. This guy has been in everything, and he’s always either threatening the lives of enemies, protagonists, and/or snakes.
9. Michelle Rodriguez
Dat sneer. She just does not give a shit about your well being.
10. Seth Rogen
Soft and comforting, like a pillow. Hilarious and an underdog. Not so much like a pillow, but you get what we’re saying.
11. Air Bud
This list doesn’t have a winner, but if it did, it would be Air Bud. This dog can play Basketball, Football, Soccer, Baseball, and Volleyball. Probably more, too, but we have to assume that the franchise lose funding after Air Bud Spikes Back.
