This is hard. As usually happens, this bracket should have been the final two. My guess is whoever wins this bracket will win it all. Either could take down Tom Cruise.

Jess - Obviously, via the seedings I gave, I disagree somewhat. But even taking that into account, I feel like Cusack is a much stronger contender than Downey; RDJ's 80s resume is just no match for Cusack's.

My pick to win it all would be Cruise, though. Love or hate him, the guy owned the 80s, and was considered hot stuff.

Fletch, I meant no disrespect at all. I thought your seedings were great. I just meant, unexpected groups make it to the final, and one bracket can become unexpectedly stacked based on who makes it through each round (I was thinking of the Butler/Duke final, that was unexpected).

I'm still a Cusack fan. I think he'll take it. =)

No disrespect taken. :) I totally know what you mean. I think the same thing about the road Ringwald has taken in the Ladies' side.
