Who Are Your Favorite Male Actors???

I know not everyone is going to share my views on this subject. I am also looking for actors I may have over looked. I will revise my list if I get some great actors brought to my attention that I forgot about. Being as how there are tons of awesome actors I did my top 10 and then continued with another 10 for a top 20. Who are your favorites and what movies made you feel that way?

1. Robin Williams (Patch Adams)

2. Kevin Costner (The Guardian)

3. Samuel L. Jackson (Coach Carter)

4. Sean Connery (The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen)

5. John Travolta (A Love Song for Bobby Long)

6. Denzel Washington (American Gangster)

7. Anthony Hopkins (Hannibal)

8. Morgan Freeman (The Shawshank Redemption)

9. Johnny Depp (From Hell)

10. Nicolas Cage (Con-Air)

The Next Ten

11. Matthew McConaughey (We Are Marshall)

12. Will Smith (I am Legend)

13. Bruce Willis (Armageddon)

14. Cuba Gooding Jr. (Radio)

15. Josh Lucas (Sweet Home Alabama)

16. Orlando Bloom (Lord of the Rings)

17. Brad Pitt (Troy)

18. Sean Penn (I am Sam)

19. Vin Diesel (A Man Apart)

20. Michael Clarke Duncan (The Green Mile)

Update:

Shia LaBeouf - that is a great answer. I love Transformers and Disturbia. I think he going to get even better with time.

Update 2:

I know people are really looking foward to Twilight because I myself am totally psyched; however Robert Pattinson (being as smoking hot as he is) and the others in the moving haven't acted long enough or in enough movies to really be considered in the top 20. Honestly people look at the list.

Update 3:

James McAvoy - I was seriously debating on putting him in there I love everything he has done that I have seen.

Atonement, Penelope, Last King of Scotland. He will definitely make it the way he going.

Update 4:

Mark Wahlberg - Great actor, love all his movies and also debated putting him on the list. Invincible, FOUR BROTHERS!, Fear

Christian Bale is awesome as well - Reign of Fire, The Prestige, Little Women

Update 5:

I would like to know how much higher exactly Bruce Willis should be.

And as far as Matthew Mcconaughey goes he has been nominated for 8 awards and won half of them. I do like

John Cusack alot though but I still am not sure if he would make this list in my opinion.

    I'd have to add a few:

    - Ewan McGregor in "Moulin Rouge!" I started watching some of his other movies after that, and the man has talent! He's so sincere in his acting, whether the movie is good ("Trainspotting") but even when the movie is awful ("The Island").

    - Javier Bardem is great, especially since I saw "The Sea Inside." "No Country for Old Men" and "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" just made him more prominent.

    - James McAvoy. I think everyone noticed him in "Last King of Scotland," but I first noticed him in "Starter for 10."

    - Speaking of which, you have to add Forest Whitaker to the list. He's good in just about everything he does!

    - Adrian Brody in "The Pianist." Fantastic performance!

    - Heath Ledger in "Brokeback Mountain." Beyond incredible performance, so I was far from surprised that he was good in "The Dark Knight."

    - Warren Beatty, particularly in "Reds," but he was great in "Bonnie and Clyde" as well.

    - I thought Brad was better in his earlier films, like "Thelma and Louise," "12 Monkeys," and "A River Runs Through It."

    - And I'd add Cary Grant to the list. He cracked me up in "The Philadelphia Story," but he's great in nearly everything.
