These sorts of things below on youtube are not for everyone, largely because of the format and the manner of speech, plus disagreement over the list, but they pass the time and the general idea is sound – it is who the actor is which is quite important.
This was a brave try:
Some actors I would avoid a film over, rather than be forced to watch it, include Richard Dreyfus, Dustin Hoffman, Andie MacDowell, there just so many. Streep.
Then there are others who are excellent in one or two films, e.g. Daniel Craig, IMHO, in Casino Royale but not all that great outside it.
More difficult are actors who can get you to watch because they’re in it including, for me, Max von Sydow, possibly Gal Gadot for her sexiness [currently], a whole bevy of honeys like Lizzie Bouchere and Lea Seydoux, irrespective of whether they can act, probably a few others.
If I knew it was an action flick, if there was no feminism, no “I’m a strong woman” and it was a genuine action/romance, then that, more than the actors, would get me into the cinema.
Some I used to watch for their name, but now will not watch anything by, include Arnie and Robert de Niro, for purely political reasons.
Then there are those in signature roles whom I would not watch in anything else and not watch any other actor in the role, including Joan Hickson, David Suchet, Jeremy Brett.
