That list pretty much covers it. I'd also add Jodie Foster, Jack Nicholson, Dustin Hoffman, and Robert DeNiro. Other than that, there aren't many contemporary actors that can rival the old-schoolers on your list.

I like Tom Hanks, Eddie Murphey, Jim Carey, Adam Sandler, Mel Gibson, Kevin Costner, Morgan Freeman.

I also like Tony Shalhoub from Monk
And Peter Gallagher off of the OC.

Kevin Costner?????
You put that in to see if anyone was paying attention, right?:doh

Adam Sandler???? He couldn't shine Tom Hanks shoes!

Johnny Depp for sheer talent-no one but Dustin Hoffman comes close to the variety of characters he's pulled off effortlessly.

Umm.. Whats wrong with Kevin Costner???
I happen to enjoy his work in Robin Hood, Tin Cup, and Message in Bottle, to name a few.

Whats wrong with Adam Sandler? I happen to like his Comedies.

This thread wasn't to debate the skill of actors, I think it specifically says.
