061: Actors of the Previous Generation

You asked for it – you now have it!

There was much debate with our listeners over show 52, “Actors Of Our Generation”. Some of our choices were questioned – “Why don’t you like Ryan Gosling?”, “Surely, Matt Damon should be on the list?” and, perhaps most telling of all, “Where is Rebel Wilson?”

Now we have broadened the debate. Let’s look at the actors of the previous generation. Do you agree with our choices – is there anyone we have missed?

Please let us know your thoughts?
