lol @ 3 out of 4 for Morgan Freeman, and 4 out of 4 for S-L Jackson and Michael Caine. 

Not surprising, though.

Yes, so it's in the detail what people really want, including the consideration of the position we've put these guys. I'm really curious about results, expecially because of the doubelings, trippelings. I really want to know, when there are some people on many lists, which list will rise or fall, because of the other guys.

Note the words act and acting were in there so many times I replaced some of them w/ some synonyms so it reads better.

@Breumaster​ keep debating if I should replace Lorre with Ernest Borgnine or Lee Marvin, but then I'd question that and come up with more actors, and drive myself crazy

Both are cool actors. I wouldn't know which to take. Maybe Borgnine? I always liked to see him, because of his strong and unique face with the tooth gap. Lee Marvin was also cool, but I don't like his roles, because he often was smoking and I don't like that.

The appeal of it is making a choice. I was also thinking of

Lee van Cleef

Bolo Yeung

James Finlayson

(the guywho always had a stern look on Laurel and Hardy  in the Laurel and Hardy movies)

George Takei

Anton Yelchin

Colin Firth

Colin Farrell

Brendan Gleeson

Casey Affleck

Very strong:

Chris Cooper

I also like

Wes Bentley

Ethan Suplee

Elliot Gould

Brian Dennehy

Richard Crenna

Carl Weathers

Gary Busey

Ted Danson

Fred Gwynne

Michael Ironside

Neil Patrick Harris

Clacy Brown

Scott Glenn

...

Michael Caine options have a clear sympathy bonus, so many of you chose it. That's totally ok. I altered my own list a little for offering a more diverse alternative. And I really remembered some pretty good supporting actors inbetween. I'm ok with it if you also want to change your lists, because memory sometimes workes slowly. That's just an option. Don't feel shy.
