    Who’s your favorite actor or actress? And why do you like that person so much?
    I go first, my favorite actor is Idris Elba. I loved his performance in Luther.

    Wow, I didn't realize someone's opinion could be false??? Strange. Anyway, my favorite actresses are Angela Bassett and Oprah. I feel Oprah gets no credit for her acting chops but she is always SO amazing in everything she performs in. Favorite actor, the main black actor guy from Gladiator. Djimon Hansou?? I'm almost positive I spelled that wrong, but that's the one. Him and the oldest brother on Empire (which I don't watch) but hes also in Selma.

    my favorite actor, all time, is Sidney Portier...for so many of the movies he's been in. but my favorite was probably "To Sir with Love." "They Call Me Mr. Tibbs," was up there, as well.

    James Earl Jones runs a close second. That voice will get you, in itself...but he brings a type of dignity to the room, when he enters. with all the movies he did, the one that touched me to deepest was "The Reading Room."

    The thing is, Denzel is a no-brainer, among popular actors today. Idris is fine as all get out, but he doesn't have a resume near Denzel's. No one does.

    But, there are so many AA women, its really hard to decide. And, none of them get enough opportunities to really showcase their range of abilities. I wanted to say Angela Bassett because she's done a lot of work. But, Kimberley has really shown some depth in the few opportunities she's had. Cicely has set the bar for today new actresses... she deserves a class of her own. JMO
