    For me, Anthony Hopkins understands film acting about as well as anyone. Almost any film he's done. Ditto Michael Caine.

    Zelijko Ivanek, Brian F. O'Byrne and David Morse. Val Kilmer is an acting god. These are consistent actors for my money.

    You also forgot Clancy Brown. ;D

    Totally nailed his roles in Shawshank Redemption, Highlander and Carnivale.
