Which of the Five Most Bankable Comedic Actors Is Your Favorite?


Forbes has come out with yet another one of its lists, ranking comedic performers by their ability to draw the masses to theaters. The top 10 includes some people you'd expect (Eddie Murphy, Steve Carell, Jack Black), though I was a little surprised to see Robin Williams on there, and Vince Vaughn apparently made it to the top five:

  1. Adam Sandler
  2. Will Ferrell
  3. Ben Stiller
  4. Jim Carrey
  5. Vince Vaughn

What do you think of these guys? In terms of their abilities to attract you to the theater, who tops the list?

Toss up between Ben Stiller and Jim Carey. Of Vince Vaughn's stuff I've only ever seen Dodgeball but I really liked it

Hmm, it's between Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn and Adam Sandler for me. I guess I'd say Ben Stiller. I love me some Jack Black though :)

Ben Stiller or Vince Vaughn, the others can be so over-the-top that it's annoying rather than funny.

Jim Carrey! I loved him when I was a kid, and anyone who could hold my attention back then must have something special. :P

None of these actors would bring me to a theater!! Of all of them I like Will Ferrell the best, but what about Seth Rogan? Michael Cera? Steve Carrell anyone?? and what about some women in this category....Tina Fey could get me to watch anything!!!!

Out of these five, Ben & Will. Zoolander, Anchorman, Blades of Glory and the "Meet The..." franchise are some of my favourite movies! But overall, I LOVE LOVE Paul Rudd, Seth Rogen, Steve Carell, Jason Segel & Owen Wilson. :love: I know these two aren't classed as just comedians, but I also love Jon Stewart & Stephen Colbert :D

i love jim carrey . i think that he makes sure to switch it up with the types of roles that he takes and that's what makes him the most successful.

I love Adam Sandler...but I think Will Smith should be in the top 5!! Though I guess Will does more than simply comedy.....

I avoid films with these actors in it. Just don't look their kind of humour, especially Ben Stiller and Adam Sandler.

Vince Vaughn, I don't find Will Ferrell all that amusing. Elf was cute but meh.

Luke Wilson and Owen Wilson, are not on the above list. But, I love them, they make me laugh so much; they are definately in my top 5.

Of the list above. Ben Stiller makes me laugh the most.But, I love the snappy way Vince Vaughn delivers a line. Paul Rudd has a brilliant delivery as well.Cheers~ Grantz
