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.

I like Brad Pitt too, but I don't go to all of his movies. I think he's a great actor though, one of the best.

But I find him brilliant when he does something a little more subtle, he was great in the Whole Nine/Ten Yards and Slevin.
