    The majority of them....IMHO.

    Steven Seagal is painful to watch.

    So are:
    Keanu Reeves
    The entire cast of Twilight
    Nicholas Cage
    Megan Fox
    Madonna

    Thank you.

    It seems the worst ones are like Sandler and Jack Black. They seem to play the same character in every movie. No great transformation or character development. Just the same thing over and over. Rob Schneider and Tom Green too.

    I've never seen her in anything else, but Kristen Stewart was mortifyingly awful in the Twilight movies. I know the character she played was an understated type, but with Stewart playing her, she was practically comatose.

    As long as I'm ragging on Twilight, Robert Pattinson is pretty bad. His American accent isn't terrible but he periodically makes this facial expression, apropo of nothing, that makes him look like he's trying to squeeze out a poo.

    That thing from House, Cameron. Can't think of who played her and too lazy to google. She was like one of those bad dolls with a jaw on hinges and a tear painted in the corner of her eye. She wasn't any better on HIMYM either.

    Ashton Kutcher. He constantly looks as though he's in grade nine drama class and following an off camera instruction literally. "Look sad" "Smile" "pretend your puppy just died".
    You can't "nu uh" death. That's bad debating.

    He's gotten looking and acting like a total D-bag down to a science, though.

    I think I'll take a strange shot at this and not say who I think can't act but mention those I suspect where not acting, but were just being themselves, and I loved them for it. Steve McQueen and Charles Bronson. Charles Bronson was a man of few words on and off the screen. He admitted this and didn't care what anyone thought. Steve McQueen, for me anyway, didn't have to do anything...just show up. Miss them both.

    I've been thinking the same regarding John Wayne and Sean Connery. These types of actors are more personalities than anything else. No matter the character, they were always Wayne, McQueen, Bronson, and Connery...but damn good at it.

    Yes. John Wayne never played anyone but John Wayne. Same with a lot of actors of that era. They were the same dude in a different suit for most of their pics.

    Sean Connery now there is an interesting person. With all his fame and glory could one not wonder how and why he chose to be King Richard in "Robin Hood, King of Thieves". What a delight it was to see him, unknown and unmentioned in the credits. The power behind his arrival in that film was astounding, shocking and right. Made perfect sense to me. No one could do it better. And I might add be for gracious. It was a perfect moment.

    Ah I've gotta put in a few good words for some of my favorites:

    Sylvester Stallone
    Ok he was awful in FIST and some other non-Rocky, action flicks. But he has tremendous comedic timing. The same goes for Schwarzenegger as well.

    Robin Williams
    Seriously? What is he even doing on this list? The man is brillant, especially in serious roles, studied acting at the Julliard School. He's had a couple of films that weren't so great, but still, he's a national treasure.

    Ben Affleck (let's lump Matt Damon in there, too)
    Suffers from young, hunky, rich and successful syndrome. He can't possibly also be clever and good at what he does. I'm jealous too.


    Nicholas Cage
    Needs to spend half as much money and make about half as many movies as he does. I loved him opposite the godess descended to earth that is Patricia Arquette in "Bringing Out the Dead" - a must see for any death hag.

    Will Smith
    Great comedic timing. Loved him in the Men in Black movies and in the Ali biopic, otherwise - not so much.



    You be careful out among them English.
    I'm a wobbly, he's a wobbly, she's a wobbly, we're all wobblies - wouldn't you like to be a wobbly, too?
    Don't mess with the banjo player - he's hard core, dude!

    Robin Williams should never have been allowed outside the Mork and Mindy studio. If his name was pencilled in the list and then erased by 666 I will now put it back on - in pen. USA must have others who can claim to be its 'national treasures' before him?
