    My favorite actress is Deanna Durbin who made 21 movies during her career and became the highest paid female in the United States:

    Will Smith in I am Legend and Tom Hanks in Cast Away. Only those guys can execute it when half of the movie is just them and their thoughts.

    I would take Will Smith and everything he's done as my favorite actor and body of work.

    Denzel Washington
    Tom Hanks
    Tommy Lee Jones

    Any movie with one of those actors in it, I will almost certainly see the movie without regard to the plot. For example Deja Vu would not have interested me, but because it had Washington in it, I watched it and loved it.

    Actor - Tom Hanks

    Movie maker (writer/director) - Kevin Smith

    I know, two complete opposite ends of the spectrum.

    Tony Scott, had to look him up, I have heard of his brother Ridley, but never Tony before. He has some good credits though.

    Him and D.Washington seem to work together a lot...some of the better ones from him:

    Deja Vu
    Man on Fire (one of my all time favorite movies)
    Taking of Pelham 123
    Crimson Tide
    Enemy of the State
    Spy Game
    Top Gun

    And he's got another one called Unstoppable in post production with...guess who...Denzel Washington

    I always thought Top Gun was Simson/Bruckheimer, but I see they just produced it and Tony Scott actually directed it. And I also love Man on Fire, great movie.

    No, and unfortunately it's not the version Netflix has. Heck I didn't even remember that Dakota Fanning played the kid in it. Definitely going to have to watch it again.
