Hugh Grant: B/B+ List Actor, With A+ Name Recognition. Sorry, but everyone knows who Hugh Grant is.
Colin Firth: B List Actor, Known for Certain Roles.
Emma Thompson: B++ Actress. Again, pretty much everyone knows who she is.
Bill Nighy: B List Actor worldwide, A List in the UK. Recognizable face, but doesn't necessarily know his name.
Liam Neeson: B+...would have been considered more as an "Award Winning, Beloved, Well Recongizable B List Actor"---but ever since Taken and the Narina films---yeah, he is definitely B+.
Keira Knightley: Well known B List Actress, famous for certain genre of films.
Chiwetel Ejiofor: B-, Unfortunately. he is so awesome too!
Helen Mirren: Here is the thing...I don't think people like her and Judi Dench, Clint Eastwood, Jack Nicholson, Anthony Hopkins, etc etc...should be including in these because I would call them 'living legendary' or 'legendary' or 'famed' or something of that nature...I just don't see how you can call someone like Helen Mirren, A List--because she doesn't open movies on her name alone however everybody knows her, and loves her work, thinks that she is the best of the best of our time--however she doesn't open movies on her name alone so she isn't exactly A. But she doesn't deserve a B...I don't know. I hope I make sense.

Liam Neeson is Irish.

I would give Colin Firth an A, but that's only for the diving into the lake scene in Pride and Prejudice. Mmmmmm ... excuse me for a second as I drool a little.

Agreed, Miranda!!!!!

1. B+
2. B (Hate to rank him lower than Hugh, but have to face reality for public name recognition.)
3. B+
4. Well, I'd call him an A, of course, but for the general public, I'd give him a C. :(
5. B+
6. A
