    please vote for who would win this round, just based on their merits as an actor, a person, or other roles/involvements that make them great. Post why you feel the way you do!

    I voted for Ewan Macgregor/ Sir Alec Guinness.....i think these men as actors play a much wider range of characters as opposed to Sam Jackson, who is limited in his range....besides Ewan Macgregor is stinkin' hot AND Alec Guinness is a friggin' knight....that has to count for something.... Frank Oz is cool...but he's just a voice.....

    Well I went to the wonderful world of IMDB.COM to check up on the actors stuff...

    I voted for Samuel L Jackson before looking at the site so i will start with him...

    he is listed at 82 movies (including some notable favorites as Star Wars, Unbreakable, Shaft, long kiss goodnight, Die hard:with a vengence, Jurassic Park, menace II society, patriot games, and who could forget his portrayl of black cream in the 1972 classic together for days.)

    he is also listed the producer of 3 movies

    also, he has made appearances on 32 documentaries. and has been on notable televsion appearances 24 times.
    but to cap it all off from 1985-1989 he was Bill Cosby's stand in on the Bill Cosby show.

    next contender is Ewan McGregor/ alec guiness
    he is listed with 36 movies (including the favorites: Star Wars, Black Hawk Down, Moulin Rouge, and the loveable fun trainspotting.)
    he produced one movie
    and he has made 8 documentaries
    and has been on tv 9 times
    and his cute little addition is that he was a singer in 2 movies.
    ALEC GUINESS: has made 63 movies (including the favorites, um.... star wars...)
    he has been in 13 documentaries (indlucing r2d2:beneath the dome)
    and has beeen on tv 5 times.
    So to be fair for this category we have to find the average of the two.
    EM 36 movies + AG 63 movies /2 = 49.5 movies
    EM 8 documentaries + AG 13 Docs /2 = 10.5 documentaries.
    EM 9 tv + AG 5 tv /2 = 7 times on tv
    A rousing second place.

    and finally frank Oz.
    he has surprinsgly made 52 movies (mostly voices) (including the favorites: star wars, and a bunch of muppet crap)
    he has directed 13 movies (including what about bob, dirty rotten scoundrals, the indian in the cupboard, and little shop of horrors)
    he produced 3 movies
    he was in 10 documetaries
    and was on tv 4 times.
    and we cant forget his moving performace as the sweedish chef's hands in the muppet movie.

    ok in all honesty Frank Oz did a whole lot more than I originally thought he did...

    but on the whole, we're focusing on the ACTOR part of this competition, so hands down my vote goes to Samuel L Jackson. The coolest black guy in the world...



    I wish Bruce Willis was a sith then we could see the coolest black guy in the world fight the coolest white guy in the world... that would be a good fight....

    I hereby declare Mace the winner! Ewan comes in second, and Yoda last.

    (Darkstar, you're on Sam Jackson's payroll, aren't you?)

    Look for Round 2 in a different poll!

    yes, but what imdb doesn't tell you is that Samuel Jackson plays the same type of character in each movie....so he may as well
    only have one movie listed....


    ok....maybe that's a little unfair...however.... here are the roles sam jackson plays.....


    wise-cracking black guy

    tough wise cracking black guy

    and tough black guy....


    so he should get credited with 3 movies....my bad.......
