    I would have to say Unknown was my favorite. He is great in all of them though.

    @ David Elrod: Sean Connery is Scottish, however, and thus not qualified to be on this list.

    I LOVE Liam Neeson. If he’s in a movie, chances are, it’s gonna be awesome but come on you guys! TAKEN! One of the greatest movies ever! Unknown was pretty good as well but Taken takes the cake in my book!
