Raven's Nest:

Fair enough... By association though, John Travolta... I forget, was he ever good in a film?

:P I was actually going to name him but forgot how to spell his last name and didn't feel like looking it up.

And no, no he hasn't.

Broken Arrow is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen...made even funnier by the fact that it's not supposed to be funny.

Pulp Fiction?

OT: Are they a bad actor if they play the same role in every film but do it well? They might be a good actor but are type cast and don't get a chance to display their range.

Female: Megan Fox

Male: Justin Bieber (based on his terrible CSI performance)

He was also in Saturday Night Fever, which was by far one of the biggest movies of the 1970s. Also Face/Off and the Thin Red Line.

I've filtered it down to 4.

Meryl Streep
Christopher Bale
Julia Roberts
and Jean-Claude Van Damme.

In fact, I think Van Damme takes the cake. It's sort of an insult to the art to call him an actor.

Michael Cera, if they replaced him with someone else in Scott Pilgrim I would love the movie 10x more.

Atmos Duality:
And yeah, I remember how Lucas strained himself to suck every last ounce of personality out of Natalie Portman, Yuan McGregor and Samuel Jackson for the Prequel Trilogy.

a communications disruption could only mean one thing invasion.
i will not condone a course of action that will lead us to war.
i just learned a terrible truth i think chancellor palpetine is a sith lord

I'll give MacGregor props, though, he fought with every fiber of his being to let his character do a little emoting. And his tantrum at the end of Ep3 worked better than nnnnoooooooooooo.

Nautical Honors Society:
This thread is very unkind.

Yeah I know, some of these answers make me cringe out of disbelief.

ROUND TWO

Keanu Reaves

Mila Kunis

Mila Kunis? Really? I thought she was pretty good in Black Swan and Friends With Benefits... Keanu Reaves is definitely not the worst either....

OT: I have a unreserved passionate hate for anything starring Megan Fox, she's not a good actor and she's generi-hot which is a sad, sad combination for somebody in films. on a more specific note, everybody who touched the steaming pile of crap that was 'The Dark is Rising', it made me want to great my eyes with a cheese grater...

We may have seen different films, but from what my girlfriend has shown me, Black Swan hasn't made up for it.

and Keanu isn't the worst because he's bad. He's one of the worst because if you put him in a role without emotion or expression and full of determination (The Devil's Advocate/Constantine/The Matrix), he excels. Anything else, and it's atrocious.
I suppose my list is more or less turning into really really bad actors, but still...

Kristen Stewart can't get mentioned enough. Google "The many faces of Kristen Stewart" for some more, unnecessary at this point, proof.

I don't know why - but I really really don't like Ben Stiller. I can't stand any character he plays - he just annoys me. There are worse actors, yeah - but I boycott any movie of his.

Jack Black is pretty annoying now as well.

EDIT: I think this thread may well have named every actor in Hollywood and Kristen Stewart an equal amount of times at this point...

Gonna go with a few others on these ones.

Kristin Stewart (or however the bloody hell you spell her name) basically because of what everyone else has said. I went to see The Avengers the other night and saw the preview for that Snow White she's in? Looks freakin' awesome except for her. She's pulling the same face throughout the entire trailer. She's so wooden. Isn't there a demotivational floating around of her compared to Emma Watson's expressions? That pretty much sums it up.

For men, sorry for the guy who wants to punch me in the face but definitely Nicholas Cage. I can't watch a movie with him in. How he's so huge is beyond me he's just such a terrible terrible actor. Terrible line delivery, emotion (or lack of) and pretty much always plays the same guy.

ermm... john travolta. and emma watson.

Lugbzurg:

The Night Angel:
I have to say that Kristen Stewart. The woman has no talent, she just does the zombie face all the time. Not just in Twilight, in other movies too. I honestly don't know how she got in the business. To be fair though, Bella strikes me as being more than a little stupid in the books, so I suppose she fit that role at least. [/rant]

Not sure which male actor, there are a few pretty awful ones. :)

Well, she might've been a little better when she was... a child. She starred in Catch that Kid. Maybe, that's how. She's just gotten worse. (Seriously, now, she looks like she's gotta make a record-breaking puke/crap every minute!) Big studios only care about your big accomplishments in the past. They don't care if you're talentless now. Actually... wait... A lot of them don't care about talent, anyway. They just want to know how much dough you can rake in for them.

Anyway, I have really come to dislike Jim Carrey. A LOT. He is not an actor. He fails to fit the criteria. He always pulls the exact same personality every single time. That's not acting. Acting is to be able to pretend you are other personalities. This is far from acting. He's energetic, but he doesn't really "act", strictly-speaking.

Have I yet mentioned enough times that he really can't actually "act"?

Jim Carey? You seen Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind or Number 23, he's amazing!

tzimize:
Not sure if he has been mentioned but all other actors are oscar worthy in comparison to

HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN!

I loathe him and every movie he is in and every stone he steps on. My god he is awful, and not even in a funny way.

This, I've taken thought, but this must be the final answer!

axlryder:
ITT, we discuss who we believe the worst actor currently working in the business is. This is primarily focusing on notable Hollywood actors, so avoid citing B-movie actors (Tommy Wiseau) or actors that most people wouldn't know. The criteria for awfulness is yours to decide, though acting ability is mostly what I had in mind when creating this thread. Just be sure to state why you think they're the worst of the worst. If you want to include one male and one female feel free to do so.

I would have included directors in the title as well, but I get the feeling that Uwe Boll would be a shoo-in for top honors. Regardless, you can throw some directing names out there if you so desire.

My vote goes to Sam Worthington.

Does this count?

(Please say it counts)

'It's my fault Kingdom of the crystal skull was terrible.'
No, fuck you Lebooof, you're part of why Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was terrible, the best actor in the world couldn't have saved that piece of crap.

I fixed it for you

There are only 3 indiana jones movies. Not four.

And to give an actual answer. The worst actor... From an objective standpoint: Almost any porn 'actor' =D In all seriousness The plethora of male actors who are taking over the 'action' star roles. And then all the females who are taking over the 'hot' role. Also Vince Vaughn. If you count 'today'

Personal standpoint: Olivia Wilde. She doesn't show emotion, much like kristen stewart. However everyone loves Olivia cause she's 'hot' Much like scarlet johansson (sp?)

But my opinion doesn't matter, there are 11 pages and noone maybe besides the guy i'm quoting is gonna read this.

When you look like this

You don't need to act =p

Curses.

subtlefuge:

As for me, I'm going with Gerard Butler. Talk about a guy who oozes nonchalance, in spite of his complete and total lack of talent.

I think Gerard Butlers acting ability is relative to whether or not he has to put on an American accent. When using his native Scottish accent, he's fine... Nothing special but nothing to complain about. When he tries it on with an American accent... It just doesn't fit and the performance suffers for it. Also, he makes terrible judgements in choice of scripts.

Shia Labeouf.
Dear lord his whiny, annoying, high pitched voice....

As for female actors its Julia Roberts.
She just seems like a bitch trying to pretend to be nice

Sometimes I feel as if I'm the only person in the world who enjoys some of Dolph Lundgren's b-movies. Of course I'm not, but it just feels that way.

You don't need to act =pCurses.

Yeah... not that attractive to me.

If you need make up to look beautiful then you aren't beautiful

Daniel Radcliffe and Kiera Knightley are two of my least favourite actors

I find that neither of them portray any kind of good, believable emotion in anything that I've seen them in

That, along with the fact that Kiera Knightley always seems to have her mouth open just a tiny, little bit; it annoys me to no end

rekabdarb:

So who in Hollywood do you find attractive? Just out of curiosity.

Justin Bieber in CSI, I'm so glad they wasted him in the show, best day of my life.

Female I'd have to say Selena Gomez, her wizard show sucks ass, and I can't ever recall her in any movies on her imdb page..

This isn't the picture i wanted to use, but since you can't put in google pictures... i think here we go
http://www.imdb.com/media/rm587117312/nm0000167

I know it's somewhat hypocritical [cause i'm pretty sure she wears makeup] but dayumn she's fine. Wanted to use this one... guess a link is as good as an image

But other than that and maybe Selma Hayek not really anyone in hollywood gets my fancy. Oh and Charlize Theron although that name is downright retarded. But there is a difference between hot/cute/beautiful/sexy and attractive. A lot of actresses are hot/cute/beautiful/sexy. They just don't get me fancy.

Melopahn:
According to Rotten Tomatoes scores... The worst actor is *Drum Roll* CHUCK NORRIS! With an 18.4% overall rating... Eddie Griffin is the 2nd worst at 24%.

The worst actress...I can't believe I forgot about her, Jennifer Love Hewitt, She has never been in a "Fresh" movie. Ah ha ha.

I admit that I've never seen a movie starring Chuck Norris, I mostly despise him because of his political views and because of Chuck Norris facts.

Here's one Chuck Norris fact for all of you:

I would say for me, Julia Roberts is easily my least favorite actress today.
I think what she has going for her is that she is very pretty (and not even by my standards), she never plays a different role. I work at a movie theater and saw "Mirror, Mirror" for a few minutes. I think it's the closest she got to me liking her (The makeup on her old self was actually very well done), but short of that, she never changes a role. Just once, I would love to see Julia Roberts play somebody with some kind of abnormality or dysfunction so people can judge if she really is a good actress or just a very pretty face.

As for male actors, I would say Vince Vaughn. Perhaps it is because Vaughn has been relegated to comedy for so long, but the guy, despite his appearance (I judge looks with Roberts because that's seems to be all she has, I won't judge Vaughn because he always looks tired) just doesn't prove to me that he is a really great actor. His serious roles, of the only one I've seen (The Cell), I can't say he was particularly compelling (Chalk that up to bad writing, I suppose), but I get kind of tired of judging Rob Schneider (He remains convincing that he's a schlub, but when you act against a woman with a penis for a nose, how good of an actor can you really be?) and Sam Worthington is really just in the wrong roles, he can probably turn out brilliance sometime, and Michael Cera isn't a bad actor, considering I always like his loser roles. Male actors are harder for me to choose.

And that's my absolute lowest considered actors, and I really can't find anything other that currently.

Actresses: What people said, but I especially dislike Cameron Diaz, Julia Roberts, and Sarah Jessica Parker. There is also Blake Lively, who was the worst part of Green Lantern (even worse than crappy CGI costume).

I do not get the Michael Cera hate - he just gets typecasted. So does Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd, and Bruce Willis, but I did not see anyone hating them.

Actors: What others said, pretty much. I did not see anyone mentioning Channing Tatum, he's such a bad actor. That guy is so wooden that his name could have been Pinoccio.

Nicholas Cage
Shia LeBeouf
Megan Fox
Ashton Kutcher

On the other hand...

I think Jack Black is a pretty good actor. Not the best ever...not even close, but at least he puts some character into the roles he plays. At first glance they might appear to be the same roles but there are subtle differences in his characters such as expressions and gestures.

Channing Tatum. Dear god that man is awful.

Richard Gere. I dislike him completely. His movies make me cringe, I don't enjoy is acting or screen presence.

I don't want to hope on the Nicholas Cage hate train, or fan train, but...

Bad Lieutenant was a terrible movie. Cliched, boring. It came out the same time as that other terrible cop movie, the one with, you guessed it, Richard Gere.

Jennifer Lopez and Stone Cold Steve Austin are also bad. Stay outta cinema.

Nicolas Cage, time and time again. There's no other actor that I hate as much as him. He plays the same damn character every time, and he never plays it well. "Well... this is odd, I better have a blank expression on my face." "Well... I didn't expect this, I better have a blank expression on my face." "Well... I didn't expect this, I better run around for a bit while having a blank expression on my face." He has no emotion, he just plays a blank slate. You could use a CGI chalkboard and get the same experience. He is a bad actor, plain and simple.

Plus I've heard he's driven the blackfoot ferret to near extinction because he rapes them to death. This is true. There are pictures.

Pffft, most actors today are poor. I am absolutely sick of Will Farrell and Angelina Jolie, can't stand their garbage. Will Farrell always forces his brand of so called comedy,and Angelia Jolie has read some of the worst lines I've ever heard out of all movies I've seen. Just go watch Original Sin, or don't if you appreciate life.

Sean Hollyman:
Robert Pattinson maybe, but he was a good Cedric Diggory

I totally just said that in Bane's voice when I read that...

The Night Angel:
I have to say that Kristen Stewart. The woman has no talent, she just does the zombie face all the time.

You mean this, right?

OT : Sam Worthington... just because of Avatar.

objection!!!

Jack Black - Not funny! ......ever.
Samuel L. Jackson - Over exposed, he's in way to many movies. Let us miss you awhile.
Natalie Portman - Cute as a button, but her acting leaves me puking.

Shia Lebeouf! He isn't exactly a good actor... and then there's that expression he always has.
