    If we're talking above the title actors, I'd go with Matt Damon, Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Meryl Streep - they can do anything.

    Under the radar, I'd throw in Stephen Lang. I see his name in the credits and have to figure out which actor he is because the guy disappears into his characters, Pickett in Gettysburg, the guy who shot Dillinger in Public Enemies, the detective in Bronx is Burning, Freddy Lounds in Manhunter.

    Johnny Depp, Will Smith and Meryl Streep.

    All know their audiences, slip in enough movies to get their acting chops in while making movies that are big grossers (for those scoffing at Will Smith, the Pursuit of Happyness. The end.)

    Johnny Depp is nothing more than the most versatile actor working today.

    And Meryl virtually nails every character she tries.
