    **BEST ACTOR TOURNAMENT**

    [link=http://www.yodajeff.com/jc_stuff/census/]BRACKET OF TOURNAMENT[/link] -- check out what's happened so far!

    Before we start, I'd like to say a few things.

    [li]Please remember that this tournament is for you to vote whoever YOU think to be the superior actor.... who you would prefer to watch if given a choice. Your opinion is what we want... not that of anyone else. :) [/li]

    [li]If you have never heard of one of the options PLEASE take 30 seconds to click on the link (it will take you to IMDB) and scan through their movie list. You may know who it is, but just not recognize the name! [/li]

    [li]This tournament will have a new vote APPROXIMATELY every 24 hours. You will be alerted that a new group is up to vote because the title will change. For example, on a tuesday the title might be " BEST ACTOR Tournament -- Universal Studios Region Round 4 " and then on wednesday it would be " BEST ACTOR Tournament -- Hollywood Hills Region Round 1 " If you miss a vote it is not a big deal, but you cannot vote after the round has been closed.[/li]

    [li]The last rounds will have extended voting time to allow as many people to vote as possible.[/li]

    [li]To begin with, 4 pairs of actors will be voted on for each round. This is done solely to keep the tournament from last for 3 months. [/li]

    [li]To vote, all you need to do is look at the most recent vote announcement (one of my posts, and it will have a colored bar from what category it is in for easy visual recognition) and write ONE name from each pair. If you want to vote for three of the pairs but not one, feel free to do so! If you vote for anything other than what is up for the vote, your post will be ignored. [/li]

    [li]Please feel free to engage in some discussion, especially comments as to why you voted for what. But if you want to just vote, that is fine as well [/li]

    [li]If at any time you'd like to see who has been eliminated and who is still in the running, please check the 2nd and 3rd posts of this thread, where I will be crossing out all eliminated options.[/li]

    [li] As always, all the normal rules apply. If you are found to be breaking the JC rules in this thread you will receive a warning, and may be forbidden from participating in the tournament after that. If you have any questions PLEASE PM me!![/li]


    Phew :p Lots of announcements. See the next two posts for the lists of actors (in a randomly generated order).
