Favorite Actors, Actresses & Directors

Are there certain movies that you will go see a just because a specific actor is in it?

For me, I see most movies with Clive Owen. The last couple years I've seen any new Hugh Grant films. I've seen all of M Night Shaymalan's flicks, though not the newest yet. I'm sure there are more for me but that's all I can think of for now. How 'bout the rest of you?

Sophia Loren. She never ceases to amaze me. That Kind of Woman first made me a fan.

Another Hugh fan here!!

My fave

Hugh Grant
Kevin Kline
Rupert Everett
Gary Oldman
Morgan Freeman (He has such class, he elevates the value of a film he is in, even if it is a bad film.)
Jean Reno
John Cusack
Antonio Banderas (rather for a viewing pleasure )

Scarlett Johansson ( I really hope she will choose her work wisely and not abuse/waste her blossoming talent)
Emma Thompson
Hilary S**** (I only saw Million Dollar Baby, but her performance was really memorable)

Luc Besson
Rob Reiner from the 80's
