Ten on Tuesday — Ten Favorite Actors/Actresses



  1. Susan Sarandon — my favorites are Bull Durham, Thelma and Louise, and of course, Rocky Horror Picture Show (Let’s do the time warp again!!)
  2. And speaking of Thelma and Louise, Geena Davis — I liked her in Beetlejuice, too.
  3. Sissy Spacek — first saw her in Carrie, I think — and her portrayal of Loretta Lynn was amazing!
  4. William Powell — love The Thin Man movies — his Nick Charles was the funniest and happiest drunk guy I ever watched!! I know, totally PI. The “wiseguy dialogue” is always a hoot to listen to.
  5. And of course, Myrna Loy — her Nora Charles complemented Nick perfectly, and sometimes she even one-upped him.
  6. Mandy Patinkin in The Princess Bride — I liked him much better in that than in Criminal Minds.
  7. Tommy Lee Jones — I would watch him in anything, but especially “The Fugitive”.
  8. George Hamilton in Zorro the Gay Blade — a person could hurt themselves watching that movie!
  9. Meryl Streep — I think I first saw her in Sophie’s Choice — makes me cry every time I watch it.
  10. And since I started with Susan Sarandon, Tim Robbins will round out my list. Also saw him first on Bull Durham I think, and loved his performance in The Shawshank Redemption. (Morgan Freeman’s too!)

  1. More agreements dear friend… loved Meryl Streep in Sophie’s Choice and loved Out of Africa. I also loved Geena Davis in Accidental Tourist. Shawshack Redemption was on of those movies that just stayed with me. I also loved Mandy Patinkin in TV’s Chicago Hope. Other parts of actors/actresses: Annette Benning in American President, Tom Hanks in Big, Marsha Mason in Good-Bye Girl, and Cher in Moonstruck. I love older movies so I could go on and on!
