Wow! Upon writing the article 'Who
is Your Favorite Actor or Actress' I had figured that at best we'd probably
get about twenty readers that would take the time to write in and give us
there thoughts. However, my email box continues to fill with suggestions
through out the day, with numbers going up to just short of eighty. Not
too bad if I may say so myself. So, lets see the top ten actors/actresses
that you guys, or should I say ladies, chose. Remember, these are names
that have NOT already been listed in our database, but will be inserted
[over the next few weeks] in the order of the popularity.
You have chosen!
The Readers Top 10
Here is the top ten suggested names that we received
in our email through out the day. We will begin at the bottom and work our
way to the top. However, just cause a name is at the bottom does not mean
that the person is low on any list, just the bottom of the top ten suggested
names. Popularity has been decided by how many times each name was requested.
Check 'em out:
- 10. Hugo Weaving- Can be cool as crazy program and
as king elf. We like this one.
- 9. Ioan Gruffudd- The common email said 'he so hot.'
Uh, Ok, he is number nine.
- 8. Edward Norton- With stellar roles in Primal
Fear and Fight Club... no doubt.
- 7. Eric Bana- Black Hawk Down, The
Hulk, Troy and now Munich.
- 6. Benicio del Toro- Agreed... would love to see
him in another Snatch-like role.
- 5. Hugh Jackman- Wow, didn't see this one coming...
but not disappointed.
- 4. Colin Farrell- Think the all the ladies just have
a big crush on the bad boy.
- 3. Orlando Bloom- I thought his role as Paris in
Troy and Balian in Kingdom may have hurt him... guess
- 2. Gerard Butler- If you told me he'd be in the
top 5 I would have laughed. Now I got to put a sock in it.
- 1. Viggo Mortensen- This guy won in a landslide.
Everybody wants Viggo, making me think there is some hidden Viggo society
somewhere. Not only did people ask for him, but also wrote extended
emails telling why he is such a great person in general. I loved him
in Young Guns 2, GI Jane, Crimson Tide and
Lord of the Rings... and I still can't compete. *Check out update below.
Before you ask, let me just point out an obvious fact here- the top 10 is
composed strictly of male actors. Why you ask? Well that is a damn good
question. I have always thought that a good portion of readers to CanMag.Com
were male, but now am thinking a bit differently. About seventy of the eighty
letters were from females, telling me how good or 'hot' one of the male
actors above were. Talk about a turn of the page! However, here is a list
below of some of the runner-ups:
Michelle Pfeifer, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Eliza Dusku, Meryl Streep, Glen
Close, Kate Winslet, Bonnie Hunt, Nicole Kidman, Naomi Watts, Meg Ryan,
Gael Garcia Bernal, Vin Diesel, Sylvester Stallone, Billy Boyd, Rutger Hauer
and Mel Gibson.
That's it.. expect these names to appear inside our database shortly. However, I am currently working on Nicolas Cage, Monica Bellucci and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson. Is that OK?
Update: Ok, Ok! Gerard Butler can be number one too. The emails pouring in over him are nothing short of insane.
Update 2: You people are crazy :). We still continue to get votes for both Viggo Mortensen and Gerard Butler. I am not deciding on who number one is, it is based on the number of emails we get. Now, we have gotten a ton for both Butler and Mortensen and, seeing how hard core these two guys fans are, I am DECLARING them both NUMBER ONE. Emails are turning into threats on who should be one... damn fun stuff.
Stay tuned for updates.
