I'm also a Brendan Gleeson fan. I love his stuff. Everything from Braveheart to Harry Potter. He's just a great versatile actor. My favorite role though has to be from Kingdom of Heaven. He was just so great in that!

jonathan is my favorite - ever since i saw him in bend it like beckham, i've been a bit obsessed. thank goodness though his career has taken off a bit since then so he has a more defined 'body of work'

Daniel Day-Lewis was born and raised in England to an Irish father and has lived most of his adult life in Ireland. He has an Irish accent for crying out loud sake so it's splitting hairs a little bit. Nicole Kidman was born in Hawaii to Australian parents and raised in Australia and I don't see anyone claiming she's American.

Colin Farrell. Great actor, great daddy, and a reformed bad boy. You gotta love him. I love Cillian Murphy as well. Colin is my fave. I :LOVE: Colin and always will.

Yes, I also was going to add that Daniel Day-Lewis was born and raised in England! But I honestly thought he was Irish until I looked it up. I'd have to pick Colin, Liam and Jonathon as my favorites, couldn't just pick one :-)

Daniel Day-Lewis is British. I'm gonna have to go with Liam.

Daniel Day-Lewis by far. Gangs of New York is one of my favorite movies ever because of him and his role as Bill the Butcher!

em1282!!! I agree w/ Brendan Gleeson as my favorite as well. He's kinda under the radar, but a great actor :)

Haha, I know he's not as handsome or popular as other people on this list, but Brendan Gleeson has been awesome for years. I love him! (And if I had to pick from that list...tough one, but Colin wins for me.)

Love 'em all. but it has to be JRM,:drool: I wish he was cast in more roles where he could speak in his natural accent.
