Film Question
 
This went unsettled in a friendly debate so I figured I'd pick OOT's brain... although this might be really easy, not sure.

Who are the three greatest actors of the past 15 years? Pretty much excluding foreign films.

Brad Pitt
Morgan Freeman

Third is hard: Eric Bana? Paul Bettany?

Foreign: Vincent Cassel

The standard answer will be Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino, and either Jack Nicholson, Dustin Hoffman, or Tom Hanks.

I don't see how these are the standard answers... I'm too lazy to open IMDB but I don't see how you can put Pacino on this list. Or Hoffman, really.

Myself, I thought the list looked like:

Hanks
Spacey
Crowe

The question certainly has a correlation to Oscars/Oscar nominations but that is not the sole factor.

PSH was RIGHT there for me, but I had to take Hanks and Denzel over him, assuming the upper range of the time frame was 15 years.
