World's best actor?

I have a lot of favourite actors. I mean, how great isn't for example Johnny Depp, George Clooney or Brad Pitt?! But let's face it, Johnny plays about (no, not always) the same role (the crazy, fun, loveble person) in all his movies.

(Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Pirates of the Caribbean,
Finding Neverland and Alice in Wonderland)

George makes an Ocean-movie and he then uses the money to produce some strange movie that no-one gets (Like Men who Stare at Goats). He then makes an other Ocean-movie because the strange movie didn't become a success, and so on...

Brad Pitt, well at first I thought he was just the good looking guy, but he actually has some diversity in his acting! I mean look at Inglorious Basterds, Mr. & Mrs. Smith and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, but he has not the class and experience as my all time favourite.

So who is he? Well he has been trapped in an airport, he has been left alone on an island, he has been in war and played the guy in a chick-flick involving mails, just to mention a few. He had his big break through with the movie where he played Forrest, Forrest Gump! Still don't know who it is?

Tom Hanks of course! I mean, what role hasn't he played?? He has been a prison guard in The Green Mile and professor/hobby detective in The Da Vinci Code. And even when he is animated (or computertized) as in The Polar Express he is great! So what is it that I like about him? Well exept that he is a really good actor, he also has such a diversity in his roles and every type seems to fit him. He can be the funny guy, the serious or even the slightly retarded.

The only one I can think of that, maybe in the future, can compete with Tom is Matt Damon. I mean he has the diversity, the class and he is a great actor. He is funny, like in the Oceans-movies, he can be an action guy as in The Bourne Identity or play deep roles as in Invictus. He just needs some more years.

Trapped in an airport in The Terminal. Alone on an island in Cast Away. Prison guard in The Green Mile.

Bookstore owner in You've Got Mail. I.e. shrimp fisher in Forrest Gump.Conductor in The Polar Express.

And yep, he made the voice to Woody in Toy Story, how cool isn't that!

Who would you nominate as World's best actor?
