Actors that you have seen enough of in movies. Mine would have to be Brad Pitt. I feel like he isn't the character he is suppose to portray, rather Brad Pitt dressed as an ancient Greek, then in western outlaw clothing...etc. I think the only time he wasn't Brad Pitt was in 12 Monkeys, but anyway....
For a female actor it would have to be Keira Knightly, for the same reasons stated above, she is never different. What are your picks?
Louise, right there with you! There are very, very few modern actors that ring my chimes but I am an aficianado of the old Hollywood stars and movies. Most of the big box-office draws now leave me cold. I'd catch an indy film way before anything mainstream and watching the oldies transports me. Unless one "gets it", the appeal of old Hollywood is lost on the masses. Give me pages and pages and hours to give my "favorites" list! Other than two fantastic offspring, it's the best thing that I got from ex #1!
Actors -- Jack Nicholson, Billy Bob Thornton, David Caruso and the actor (his name is not worth remembering) who played Darth Vader in the latest Star Wars movies. I didn't see the second two because of him, and I loved the original three.
Actresses -- Barbara Streisand, Madonna (and really, both don't deserve to be called actors), Kristen Stewart, and Penelope Cruz.

I don't hate Jack Nicholson, but I've never understood his appeal. Maybe it's because I'm not familiar with his earlier work, but for as long as I've been aware of him, he's pretty much been playing... Jack Nicholson.
Though he was good in the first Michael Keaton version of Batman.
