    So as not to put too fine a point on the "generation" issues, how about anyone living during my lifetime?

    Let's also open the competition to TV/stage actors:

    John Lithgow.

    Fire away, Connie.

    yea, except that Bale is Welsh.

    Ok, anglo-saxon, my bad. For the record I consider that, say Banderas, is now an american actor, although he used to be a spanish one....

    In addition to some names previously mentioned:
    Terence Stamp
    Does being in Star Wars make Gielgud of my generation?
    And if he counts, then so do Maggie Smith and Judi Dench.
    Also, Tim Roth.

    I KNOW LabelKing isn't even close to Christopher Walken's age, and Jack Lemmon?
    I had surgery. I'm also going to say Dean Stockwell--his turn as Ben in Blue Velvet was a minor triumph.

    I think you're thinking of Alec Guinness here.

    You are, of course, right. I must be closer to that generation than I've been willing to acknowledge.

    Vincent Cassel.
    Absolutely. Unfortunately, he's been so typecast in English language movies that his talent may not be apparent to all
