    Unashamedly stealing NERs 'You Choose' concept for Derby players, I thought it may be worth doing different types, starting with film, and actors.

    Here goes:

    Morgan

    or...

    Denzel

    Morgan for me...probably because I think on the whole he has appeared in better films....

    Oooh I like Morgan Freeman but if I was faced with a choice of a Denzel Washinton film or a Morgan Freeman film, without knowing anything about the plot I'd chose Denzel Washington every time.

    Denzel is just way too smooth not to vote for him.

    Both absolute quality but i would plump for Freeman purely because he appears in one of if not the best film ever made in the shawshank.

    I would opt for Denzel by the way, for his stunning portrayal of Rubin 'Hurricane' Carter. Both two of my favourite actors, and very much on a par, though.

    Agreed, the Hurricane was a fantastic film (and the Dylan song about him is great too)...I was so interested in his story that I did some research about him afterwards....my conclusion is that he was probably innocent but nevertheless not a particularly nice piece of work....

    Both top actors but Morgan Freeman has played god at least twice, so I have to go for him. Just in case.

    Tough one to call both excellent actors - I would probably just choose Denzel as i think he is slightly more versatile.

    Nicholson for me.
    For "cuckoo's nest" and his portrayal of the OCD challenged guy in "As good as it gets" just tipped it.
    De niro has done some superb work (Deerhunter was ace too) so a really narrow one though.

    Robert De Niro for me, I always think that, as entertaining as Jack Nicholson films are he generally plays the same part in each film.

    You talking to me...the man from Tribeca hands down.
    Especially when you see him at an event when he has to do some kind of speech when he is awful...it shows me even more just how good a character actor he is.

    For me this an easy one has to be De Niro. As good as Nicholson is in some films such as Cuckoo Nest, Few Good Men and the Shining he has been in two of the most boring films I have ever seen in About Schmidt and As Good As it Gets and as a result if I saw he was in a film I wouldn't imediately think 'I must see that' where as with the exception of the Fockers films (not my cup of tea at all) I always want to see a film with De Niro in it.
