Watch them in anything?

| 3 Comments

So EW has put up the first half of their list, 50 Actors We'd Watch in Anything. After taking a gander, I was less-than-shocked about how differently I feel than the good folks over there.

This is their first 25:

1. Kate Winslet
2. Alec Baldwin
3. Jude Law
4. Phillip Seymour Hoffman
5. Edie Falco
6. Morgan Freeman
7. Meryl Streep
8. Johnny Depp
9. Daniel Day-Lewis
10. Simon Pegg
11. Ryan Gosling
12. Rosario Dawson
13. Don Cheadle
14. Kristen Bell
15. Tony Leung
16. Nathan Fillion
17. Emma Thompson
18. Denzel Washington
19. Cherry Jones
20. Brendan Gleeson
21. Will Ferrell
22. Catherine Keener
23. Tom Selleck
24. Patricia Clarkson
25. Paul Rudd

There are only two names on that list that I'd actually watch in just about anything: Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Johnny Depp. Another five I'd go out of my way to see (Daniel Day-Lewis, Don Cheadle, Nathan Fillion, Catherine Keener, and Patricia Clarkson). Another few I kind of like (Kate Winslet, Morgan Freeman, Emma Thompson, Brendan Gleeson). A few I had to look up to figure out who they were (Ryan Gosling, Kristen Bell, Tony Leung, Paul Rudd). And a few I strenuously avoid (Alec Baldwin, Jude Law, Tom Selleck). Who comes up with this stuff?

I would say a good 5 people on that list I have never heard of

Try to avoid:
14. Kristen Bell (die on Heroes, already!)
21. Will Ferrell (crossed into annoying 9 movies ago)


Don't care about
1. Kate Winslet (in boring movies generally)
3. Jude Law (usually lame movies)
4. Phillip Seymour Hoffman (find him sort of self-righteous)
5. Edie Falco
6. Morgan Freeman
7. Meryl Streep (she's great in stuff I have seen her in)
9. Daniel Day-Lewis (lame movies)
11. Ryan Gosling (thought he was great in half nelson...what else is he in?)
13. Don Cheadle (seems okay)
15. Tony Leung (who?)
16. Nathan Fillion (who?)
17. Emma Thompson
18. Denzel Washington
19. Cherry Jones (who?)
20. Brendan Gleeson (who?)
22. Catherine Keener (kind of dislike her)
24. Patricia Clarkson (who?)


Like
2. Alec Baldwin (he's hilarious)
8. Johnny Depp 12. Rosario Dawson 23. Tom Selleck (hilarious)


Would see anything they are in
10. Simon Pegg (most brilliant person working in film today)
25. Paul Rudd (problematic, since he is in a lot of will farrell movies)

I just discovered your blog, but from what I read so far you should seriously know who Kristen Bell is! Veronica Mars is kind of an adopted part of the Whedonverse since it appeals to the same demographic (no, I don't mean teenage. Smart and Sarcastic, yes.) and Joss Whedon has openly called it his favorite. He even has a guest spot!


And just a sidenote, I am realy enjoying your blog so far.
