Cast your vote for the most versatile actor, or, actress, of your opinion.

I, myself, am torn between James Cagney, Tom Hanks, Robert Duval, Sean Connery,  and Danny DeVito.    I give Coburn some Kudos, too.  I don't give Eastwood any, as his attempts to play romantic parts., "Paint Your Wagon", "Bridges of Madison County" are wimpy...he is best as the tough guy.

Paul Muni, Film historian Robert Osborne notes that his makeup skills were so creative, that for most of his roles, "he transformed his appearance so completely, he was dubbed 'the New Lon Chaney.'

Oh, I forgot Lon Chanel (Sr!)  Slap my Hand!   Cry But, then, he Did always play a horror role.

 I am looking for actors that break out of the stereotype. (Eastwood never did--not cutting him down, I Like him. But, he is only good as a Tough Guy.)

Didn't Muni play in a Charlie Chan movie?  ( I know Sidney Toller did the character usually) And in,  "I was a Prisoner on a Chain Gang"?
