I'm a child of the 80's/90's action film, so for endless constributions, I have to go with Wesley Snipes - Passenger 57, Demolition Man, Money Train, the Blade trilogy...Endless guilty-pleasure gold!

Aginor, don't he ashamed to admit you enjoy action/macho films!! Did you read my post above lol?! I grew up worshipping the likes of Steven Seagal, Van Damme, Chuck Norris, Don `The Dragon' Wilson, Cynthia Rothrock, Arnie, Sly, etc, and watching the films of the macho directors like Walter Hill, early Tony Scott, etc.

OK, so many of those above may not exactly be `method actors', but there's a simple guilty purity to the times in cinema when all problems were solved with weapons!

Just enjoy them, and be proud of your love of them!

Same here. Before becoming a David Lynch aficionado I loved Schwarzenegger, Seagall, Van Damme, Stallone etc.

Mickery Rourek is probably one of the most natural gifted method actors since Brando, which is stated by James Lipton who is actually god WinkLOL,  (Rourke only had to have two auditions for getting into the Actors Studio (at Pace university lol, i have seen to much ItAS episodes) Brando had two, and Nicholsen hasd two, and James Dean and Marilyn Monroe had one. i think Mickety studdied with Stella Adler Approve.

both Cage,and Snipes have actor training, Cage was bron into the acting role being a Coppola, and Snipes both being physically a martial artist since 12 but also took up acting in high school can recite Shakespeare while butkicking vampires

I'll give my vote to Cage. I'm aware that for every good performance he did, there were 10 that sucked big time. But he did brought us some awesome roles in movies such as Leaving Las Vegas or Adaptation.

Anyway, he's one of those actors I can forgive for every crap he's done.

To close, some funny Nick Cage videos






You HAVE to love good ol' Nic

Cage is also an avid geek, and is the biggest comic book nerd i know of who is not one who i wouod expect being a comic book nerd, but when  you base your Hollywood name after Luke Cage, the you are a comic book geek for sure.

It would not strike me as weird if he came out of the closet as a prog rock fan ether, maybe he likes Coheed and Cambria.

I really can't stand Nicholas Cage, sorry Agi. Yeah ok, I kinda like him as Sailor, but every film since then he's played the exact same character - droopy eyed action hero with a soft side hiding behind his pseudo American/Italian exterior.....
Give me Johnny any day of the week. He should've received an Oscar for either of the two Hunter S. Thompson flicks.

I don't care which actors people dont like Tongue, no need to say sorry no no eed to pray no need to say sorry Wink

i only like Anthony Head or know of him for his portal of Uthrer Pendragon in Merlin where he is so good tat you both pity Uthor and hate the guts out of him but he shines in that role.stone cool  but also emotional at the same i have seen in a series.

why are you questioning my taste of actors in my poll

 both are two of the best actors and i love them so leg of, and let me love them without you questioning my taste in actors please.

I love them respect that and i respect that you love actors i don't care for but don't  act like im no taste which i have 

that our tastes differs is ok, but show respect for me actually prizing Cage and Snipes, for reasons you have no clue of and what things i ae my taste of actors on

Sadly, Nic Cage has become something of a joke, signing on for just about anything these days. Kind of chosen quantity over quality, but every once in a while he still puts in a great performance. `Matchstick Men' from some years back was superb!

From a purely entertaining point of view, `The Sorceror's Apprentice' is terrific goofy fun, and I have a soft spot for his two Ghost Rider flicks, terrific B-movie trash, and based on one of my favourite comic books!

Poor Wesley really slipped into B-grade/direct to video rubbish years ago, which is a shame....then again, he's in prison now, which is MUCH worse lol! Aginor, I would have loved to see Wesley make a full-blooded martial arts flick.....he never did. I guess the Blade films shows off most his skills?

I LOVE that Nic Cage film `8MM', what a nasty, tense and confronting film that was.

I'm a sucker for any film with a vigilante element to it!
