Honestly, I think both Brad and Tom are very good actors.

As someone already noted, Brad's performances in Snatch and Fight Club were great. Though I'm not a fan of most of Tom's movies, (I hated Magnolia and Vanilla Sky) I think Tom was incredible in Collateral and Far and Away. But, when it comes to celebrities who consistently shell out great performances and aren't recognized, they aren't it, IMO.

I agree with Evan Rachel Wood. Great in Pretty Persuasion.

Vanilla Sky wasn't risky for Tom, he rewrote the role so that he wouldn't be as disfigured as in the original movie cause heaven forbid Tom looks ugly in a movie. The problem with Tom is even when he has a half decent movie, I only ever see Tom the movie star. Plus now the crazy off screen antics overshadow everything else. I fail to see how playing a hit man in Collateral was a risky movie for Tom.

I'm curious to see how Brad does in Babel alongside Cate B. I thought he was great in Seven, 12 monkeys, Fight Club and Legends of the Fall.

On Ed Norton (also my fave), I don't think he's underrated, I think he's given proper credit. He just isn't appearing in many movies, which is most probably his choice.

Agree on Buscemi and Edward Furlong - awesome actors.
Totally agree.

Cruise can act. To judge him based on his public personality is ridiculous. He has made some great movies.

I can judge him from that too, but I've discussed about acting here, therefore I have judged Cruise about his films, which I have unfortunately seen a lot. Sorry the strange phrasing.

Totally agree. How could I forget 7!!!!

I think Gabriel Byrne can be added to the underrated category - what an awesome actor.
