    Very true I'd like to see him in some other genres of films. Good point dwayne1716.



    Morgan Freeman and Whoopi Goldberg


    Thank you matheneyg, they are good. I really loved Morgan in " THE BUCKET LIST".

    My favorite black actor is Morgan Freeman. Also, Sydney Poitier, and Denzel Washington, and the guy who played the giant guy in "The Green Mile". For female actresses, Oprah Winfrey in the Color Purple, all the male and female actors who played in "Roots", Angela Bassett, Whoopi Goldberg (esp. where she played the housekeeper for the guy who was widowed, and took great care of his little girl. The actress who played the young girl in "Beloved". There are many more, I can't remember them all, but I like character parts that really are evocative of human emotions and can make you feel their pain, and joy.
    Denzel Washington. Ranks up there with the all time greats.
    Ok...I forgot Denzel and Mr. M. Freeman! I do apologize

    Jeffrey Wright. Great underrated actor. A real chameleon, like Gary Oldman.


    You're right Ms Sinclair, Jeffrey IS A GREAT underrated actor. He has played SO many roles and was good at it.

    Dennis Haysbert in the unit


    Dennis is a good actor, thanks PP.

    Ms Sinclair

    He was the first black president (on 24) too!

    Sydney Poitier. To Sir With Love, Guess Who's Coming to Dinner? Two of my favorite movies of all time. They don't make'm like that any more; both movies that make social commentary taking a stand on the questions of race, education, and modern social reforms, done with class and critical thought. In the case of To Sir With Love, it is about a black teacher who must figure out how to teach a bunch of brats about the lessons of life, racism, history, and adulthood. In Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, a white girl brings home her black man to meet her white parents, played by Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn, who come to grips with the fact that they taught their daughter very well, very well indeed. Don't get me wrong, Mr. Poitier has done a lot of movies that I liked, and none that I can think of that I did not. But even so, these two movies stand out in my mind as his best, and I am using them as examples to show why he is my favorite black actor of all time.


    Thank you bluedeath,Sydney Poitier is an excellent actor and I loved the movie " GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER", A CLASSIC.

    I love Will Smith and Denzel Washington!!


    Thanks MalibuMom, Will is definitely one of my favorites, I have relatives that know him personally.

    Esther Rolle. She was a class act!


    Good answer larrys, I loved her in " GOOD TIMES". Thanks for your input.

    Halle Berry & Eddie Murphy.
    Not sure that colour matters, but since you ask... Whoopi Goldberg. She can play "funny" and "touching" in the same film. It makes her character "live". Sister Act is one of my favourite movies.

    mine too!

    Samuel L Jackson and you know it! Densel Washington second and Angelia Bassett Tony


    Three GREAT actors, Sam and Denzel , no doubt are very great actors, but Angela B. I LOVED her in HOW STELLA GOT HER GROOVE BACK. That lucky Taye Diggs.

    Halle Berry
    will smith epic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    female: angela bassette, male: non other then Densel Washington


    Thank you bootsie1940, Angela WONDERFUL actress and Densel, hey what can I say.

    Is this a trick question? Denzel by far

    Black Beauty horses over people anytime.

    There are way too many to name. I happen to like Tyler Perry, myself; just to name one individual. Tyler Perry came from living out of his car to a worldwide phenom. His ability to connect with the emotions of his audience, is just awesome. His abiltity to act, direct, and star in his films is a plus.

    your sister,

    The President


    forest whitaker

    Ms Sinclair

    Did you ever see him in The Crying Game? I thought his accent sounded very good, at least to my American ears. I don't know how a British person would feel about that though.

    Ms Sinclair

    You're very welcome Spaceghost.


    Forest is a good actor and has been in MANY films, one of my favorites was " GHOSTDOG". You noticed the word " GHOST". GHOSTDOG- SPACEGHOST, LOL.


    Thank you 1967.


    I haven't seen THE CRYING GAME yet, I heard it was a good movie and that Forest did a excellent job in the movie, Thanks Ms Sinclair, and Thank you for being a friend.
