Gary Oldman is good, but my favorite actors are Skip Homeier, William Windom, and William Smithers. You are probably thinking "who?"-All played famous roles as guest actors in the original Star Trek series. Homeier played "Dr. Sevrin" and "Deputy Fuhrer Melokon", Windom was "Commodore Matt Decker" and Smithers was "Captain R. M. Merrick". They have done many other roles, but these stand out for me.

Me too for sure.

I actually have no idea who my favorite actor is.  I do know quite a few and it always motivates me to see these oscar-bait movies when there's some great talent behind them.  But I've never actively thought about who is my favorite, and I can't claim that I have seen the entire filmography of any one actor.

Gary Oldman is a great actor but usually plays supporting roles.
His character in Batman is one of the few times he plays a good guy (that I have seen).
He's the bad guy in The Professional (already mentioned) but also in Air Force One, The Fifth Element, The Book Of Eli to name a few.
He plays an hilarious character in dire need of a chapstick in an older movie called Nobody's Baby.

Also plays the 'good guy' George Smiley in the movie based on the very 'grey' espionage thriller Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.  Was brilliant but Alec Guinness did a much better job.  Also looked more like Smiley with that tubby tummy.

I bought three or four movies the day I bought Tinker Tailor. I couldn't get into it and put on one of my other purchases. I meant to get back to it but never did. I should do that in the next day or two.
