I have given this some thought. Only a few really stand out, but I think that Josh hartnet (I think that's his name) is so darn boring in every movie he makes. I can't see for the life of me why Hollywood (out of all aspiring actors gives this lump movie roles).

Another one that I can think of is Nicholas (I'll put you too sleep with my voice) Cage. God awful boring actor. It's no wonder his best role was that one about Las Vegas where he was a drunk. Probably didn't have to prepare to much to act drunk. Just talk normal and slur your speech..So boring to watch.

I can't think of anymore right now, because I am tired, but I will add more later. these two nit wit actors are downright boring to watch. No character and no charm...Uhh, still wondering how they get roles.

Tom Cruise.

He has two expressions.
Boring and screeching, which is also boring.

Weird, I cannot come up with a single one. Perhaps because it never occurred to me or applied to me as an issue. Bad actor or annoying actor or boring movie yes but a boring actor....no.

I agree with you in regards to Nicholas Cage with just one exception. I really enjoyed the Weather Man which is odd because I typically don't enjoy his movies at all.

Haven't see enough of Josh Hartnet to have an informed opinion but I did like 40 days and 40 nights.

The two that come to mind are Keanu Reeves and Chris Klein.

Agree about Harnett, he makes me feel like I'm on valium.

For actresses, I'd say Scarlett Johannson. I'm sure some will counterattack that with "but she's hot", though I need more than sheer looks to go on. I find her very wooden and one-dimensional.

David Duchovny - I liked him in the first 3 seasons of X-Files, but he developed this monotone way of acting I just can't enjoy.

Ed Norton. Everyone seems to love him, not me. Scarlett Johanssen. Those are the first that popped into my head. I'll think of more.
