You wouldn't have the room for all of the male actors I can think of since I have favorites from the Silents to the present. I'll name some favorites, but most have played a wide variety of characters, not just one. I wouldn't know what category to place each one. EDIT: I'm going for paragraph form, too.

Just some of my faves:
Johnny Depp (can play any character - 'Blow'/'POTC'/'Finding Neverland'/'DonJuan' etc.)
James McAvoy (I think he plays well in good guy/guys you can't help but love roles - 'Starter fo Ten'/'Becoming Jane'/'Shameless')
Al Pacino (lovable bad guys who usually start off with good intentions - 'Scarface'/'Donnie Brasco')
Edward Norton (can play any character)
Jonathan Rheys Meyers (lovable good guy - 'Bend it Like Beckham'/'August Rush')
Leonardo DiCaprio (can play any character - 'Blood Diamond'/'The Departed'/'What's Eating Gilbert Grape')
Matt Damon (can play any character - 'Dogma'/'The Departed'/'Talented Mr Ripley'/'Ocean's trilogy'/'Bourne trilogy')
Jack Nicholson (lovable arseh0le)
Paul Walker (guy on wrong side of tracks but with good intentions who tends to take his top off - 'Fast and Furious 1&2'/'Running Scared')
Morgan Freeman (good sensible guy who always offers advice to other characters - 'Se7en'/'Shawshank Redeption')
Brad Pitt (any character - 'Snatch'/'Fight Club'/'Ocean's trilogy'/'Se7en'/'Interview With a Vampire')
Shaine West (guy with issues that needs a girl to help him see what hey are - 'Walk to Remeber'/'ER')
Samuel L Jackson (any character)
John Travolta (any character - 'Grease'/'Pulp Fiction'/'Face Off'/'Hairspray')
Mel Gibson (good guy - 'Lethal Weapon 1-4'/'Braveheart') Simon Pegg (lovable guy who means well but usually gets it wrong - 'Run Fat Boy Run'/'Shaun of the Dead')
Nick Frost (hilarious side kick who aint really got a clue about nothing - 'Shaun of the Dead'/'Hot Fuzz')
Jamie Bell (any character)
Charlie Hunnam (any character - 'Green Street'/'Queer as Folk'/'Nicholas Nickleby')
Danny Dyer (lovable rogue - 'Football Factory'/'The Business'/'Severance')
Will Smith (good guy who always saves the day - 'Men In Black 1&2'/'iRobot'/'Independence Day')
Denzel Washington (any character - 'Man on Fire'/'Judgement Day')
Hugh Grant (charmer and often a bit geeky - 'Notting Hill'/'Bridget Jones' Diary 1&2'/'Four Weddings and a Funeral')
Channing Tatum (I used to think a bit of eye-candy with the occasional attitude problem thrown in - 'Step Up'/'She's the Man' - however I have recently seen 'A Guide to Recognising Your Saints and he was fantastic in that)
Shia LeBouf (I used to think a kid with a few issues who ends up coming out on top at the end - 'Transformers'/'Disturbia' - but again when I saw him in 'A Guide...' I thought he was a fantastic actor)
I could keep this up for ever so I will end my list here.
I would say that I usually prefer bad guys or at least 'complex' characters as this tends to give the actor more of a chance to show off their skills, but I do like many different characters and their roles depending on the film and the actor.

Typically bad guy roles are best because it allows for alot more diverse character.Good guy roles are usually pidgeon hold in a certain expectation to follow certain guidelines.Crazy roles typically fall into the bad guy role.
