Who are some actors or actresses you are grateful to still be around and acting?

Let me know!

    • Oh, well as far as Russell, you know I am eternally grateful that he is working. I am looking forward to “The Art of the Steal.” I was going more for actors who have film backgrounds that are doing cable shows for networks like HBO, Showtime and TNT. Maybe I should have clarified that better. But Russell forever rules in my book. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for stopping by, Brian. I appreciate it.

  1. I love that Betty White is still working. She’s so cute and just hysterical. I’m glad Donald Sutherland’s still working. I can’t think of many others, though… Who’s your Top 3 favourite actors?

    • Betty White will be in my Top Actresses list coming up next week. Love her. As far as my top 3 faves…man, that’s hard. I may have to go old school like Pacino, DeNiro and possibly Steve McQueen. But ask me in another week and that might change! I’m so frakking indecisive ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for stopping by, Daniel!

  2. Nice list! I’m also glad Betty’s still around to entertain us. As for actors…Malkovich and Walken. ๐Ÿ™‚ And Alan Rickman’s pretty awesome.

    • Thanks! Mal and Walken are so cool! I’m glad they are around too. Rickman as well. I will put Betty on my next list for sure. Thanks for stopping by, Misty! ๐Ÿ™‚
