I have to disagree about Vince Vaughn. I think he is highly enertaining. Doesn't sh t the fk up, but highly entertaining. Colin Farrell is hot and cold. Some roles, I just want to poke my eyes out and others, I just want to scratch them...He's a bit blah, not as bad as some.

Brendan Fraser, yes indeed another boring one.

Scarlett Johansen another boring one. Jennifer Anniston kind of boring. Nicoloe Kidman is severely boring. some of your responses have woken me up to others. David Duchovony is boring too.

I disagree about Morgan Freeman, I don't think he is boring but interesting.

Chris Klein is another pathetically boring actor.

I don't get Adam Sandler as being boring. maybe some of his movies, but for the most part he's not in my eyes.

That fat Jonas kid who thinks he's funny but not,--boring. He's playing in a new movie along Brad Pitt called moneyball. Not only does he think he's funny but not, but for some reason rubs me wrong..

Kevin costner-Very boring


Matt Damon besides Good will Hunting and a few other movies can seem sort of boring to me. I must be the only one who thinks this though since he is so constantly praised and given good movie roles. I think my problem with him is he comes from the stand point of not yelling or screaming, etc to get your point across. I remember him trashing Halle Berry for her oscar performance on how anyone can yell and scream to get an oscar. Yet, I don't think he quite understands the balance. Yes, act like normal people do, but here and there show a little excitement or enthusiasm in your roles. It doesn't have to be so cut and dry...

Advice from a c-d member, that's all he needs...

And btw, good pics everyone....

LOL I love Sam Jackson! For me he is quite the opposite of 'boring'.

What many people don't realize is that many times how good an actor appears to be is based on how good the material (script) or direction is.
My very very very favorite actor of present 'Hollywood' is Russell Crowe and yet I could have done without a few of his film choices.
I disagree with the person who dissed Matt Damon - I feel he is a very talented actor!

Ben Afleck's acting ability has improved greatly in the past 10 years or so.
He was absolutely brilliant in The Town!
