Jean-Claude Van Damme
Of the ones that you had bolded that I DISagree with adamantly:
Antonio Banderas (plays a great psycho bad guy)
Matt Damon (one of my more recent favorites)
Brad Pitt (best smart ass actor out there)
Will Smith (he's one of the hottest actors out there)
Wesley Snipes (another great bad guy)
John Travolta (no explanation necessary)
Bruce Willis (Yippee Ki Ye MotherTrucker)
Other ones that I probably agree with for different reasons:
Jim Carrey (can't be taken seriously)
Jackie Chan (too many goofy movies)
Arnold Schwarzenegger (isn't he doing something else now?)
I think longevity has to count for something. Do you become A-list overnight? For this reason I didn't add Jamie Foxx and for that matter, shouldn't have put Ben Stiller on there.
These actors are horrible now. WIll smith had a great run, at horrible films turning into box office gold.
John Travolta , after sword fish, his acting career took a big hit.
Brad Pitt, is dope, but alot of people said Jenffer Anston had more power then him for movies.
He also tends to do low buget films..
Snipes should never be consider a A list star.
I love Matt Damon since I saw Rounders, and I think hes a good actor, but somthing about him bugs me. Id ranked him in tier 2.
Antonio Banderas .LOL. If the Mask of Zorro is your best film, hehe
