Michael Cera, I haven't seen Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist but he was hilarious in Juno so I doubt he was anything less in that.

I said RDJ, because 2008 was his come back year. he was funny in Tropic Thunder and can't wait to see Sherlock Holmes when it comes out. There are a lot of good actors on this list, Paul Rudd was good in Role Models and Will Ferrell is always funny.

Hands down, RDJ. He was unbelievably hilarious in Tropic Thunder, but it was also great acting.

i LOVE russell brand. i know that a lot of people didn't like what he did at the VMAs and i don't think that it was the best representation of him - but otherwise - i think that he's really funny!

Steve Carell! I loved Get Smart and everyone that I saw it with enjoyed the movie. We were laughing all the way to the end. I appreciate that the humor is for everyone, it's not offensive or anything like that. Steve Carell was great in it.

Gotta go with Craig Robinson! I absolutely loved him as Darryl on The Office and he was hilarious in Knocked Up, Zack & Miri and Daddy's Little Girls. Whenever I see him in a movie, I know a good laugh is always gauranteed. :) It's so good to see a refreshing new face on the comedy scene.

James Franco is such a comedic gem! His funnyordie.com videos always get me. And he's rather easy on the eyes as well ;)

I chose RDJ because I loved Tropic Thunder and Iron man! James Franco was amazing in Pineapple! QUESTION to Gregwashere what was Robin Williams in this?

Robert Downey Jr. with Franco in a close second.

Paul Rudd. But Franco in Pineapple Express really pleasantly surprised me. Sad to say, I am so over the Seth Rogen thing.

I heard that tropic thunder was racist and full of low-brow humor and didn't see it because it got so many bad reviews. I really like Paul Rudd!

Russell Brand, Paul Rudd or Jason Segal. Too hard to choose

I chose Robert Downey Jr because I thought Tropic Thunder was absolutely hysterical. But it was close with Jason Segel. He was so funny in Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

Most of the laugh out loud moments in 'Zack and Miri' was due to Craig Robinson. I love him in the 'Office' as well.

Robert Downey Jr. all the way. He's true talent! Next was Russell Brand

I went with Seth Rogen, but if I had two votes the second would go to Russell Brand. He cracked me up every time he came on the screen in Sarah Marshall.
