    Six of one, half a dozen of the other. Neither holds a candle to, the late, Sir Lawrence Olivier or even Al Pacino or...well...any other male actor for that matter.

    Don't think I've ever seen a George movie, I seen Depp ones though, the best was the Secret window, an awesome film.

    If you watch George Clooney in 'Michael Clayton, you will see that he is a very good actor.

    I like Dohnny Jepp better. Much better style.

    I agree. Michael Clayton (2007) was really very good.



    "Do I look like I'm negotiating?"



    Michael Clayton: Cops like hit-and-runs. They work 'em hard, they clear 'em fast. Right now there's a BCI unit picking paint chips off a guard rail. Tomorrow they're gonna be looking for the owner of a custom painted, hand rubbed Jaguar XJ12. The guy you hit? If he got a look at the plates, it won't even take that long. There's no play here. There's no angle, there's no champagne room. I'm not a miracle worker, I'm a janitor. The math on this is simple; the smaller the mess, the easier it is for me to clean up.
    [Phone rings]
    Client: That's the police, isn't it?
    Michael Clayton: No. They don't call.

    As above, see Michael Clayton (2007). And as for Clooney's range, see O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000).

    Anybody can play a bloody pirate.

    So true - two of Clooney's great movies, as well as 'Up in the Air'.

    I'm not saying he hasn't had his stinkers -- Solaris (2002) and The Men Who Stare at Goats (2009) leap to mind -- but when he's good, he's very good.

    I also really liked The Monuments Men (2014).

    There were/are actors who make you feel they are more present than others - Clooney is such an actor to me. I haven't seen his stinkers 🙂 , only the good ones.

    And forgive me, I see you quoted my first draft, before my edit. I had meant to include Solaris from the beginning, but when I copy-pasted the name over, I found I had copied Syriana instead. Syriana was actually pretty good.

    Depp, better actor. They both are likable if they choose.

    Depp is a more versatile actor, though I think Clooney is better in dramatic roles. Both quite likable.
