I feel like the title explains itself, no?
What "respected" actor do you think is just not very compelling, interesting, or dynamic as others say they are? Or, alternately, what "great actors" irrationally peeve you?
I feel like Johnny Depp is a bold actor, but not a particularly talented one. He's charismatic, and can do deadpan, but, as far as peers, it's remarkable how much better an actor Brad Pitt has become, and how Depp's latter-day turns are just a collection of tics. Two bigtime leading men headed in complete opposite directions, and when Depp isn't doing obnoxiously wacky, he's been boring me as of late.
