Any list that has Keanu Reeves and The Rock listed higher than Humphrey Bogart, Peter Cushing, Toshiro Mifune and Steve McQueen is seriously fucked.

I will be royally ticked off if Cary Grant and Christopher Lee aren't in the top 20.

And I find it interesting that Deborah Kerr and Julie Andrews are the only actresses listed so far....

Should have done separate lists for actors and actresses.

I know what the top two are, and as long as Hamsters not bullshitting me, I'm not telling :P

I would have prefered someone else as number one/two, but they do deserve their position.

Thankfully, the top ten is pretty good.
