Cruise will always have the anti-Cruise factor, and then you have Cusack who has the ultimate likability quality (I still say you put him and Luke Wilson were born to play brothers in a movie).

Really, Cruise's films are just so legendary I struggle to not vote for him. Risky Business, Color of Money, Rain Man, Born on the Fourth of July, Top Gun (for better or worse) are just all pristine classics.

I agree wholeheartedly. My vote went to Cruise.

Yeah gotta go with Cruise. A few years ago if you looked at my top 100 films of all time, Tom Cruise with the actor that appeared most often (even more than Harrison Ford). I think he was in like 11 of my top 100 - probably not so much anymore, but still, the guy was/is prolific.

Pains not to vote for Cusack for just about anything though.

Looks like Cusack will probably win anyway.

How is Cusack winning? He's a good actor and incredibly likable, as already stated... but how can you beat Cruise's resume?

Yea Cusack!!! Cruise may be hot but Lloyd Dobbler is unforgettable.
