Which of them from the list is the coolest combination of the actor and his acting?
The main matter is about cool guys imprinting cool characters in a positive or negative way.
Someone who stays in the audience's mind.
List: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls042379635/

Hi! Breumaster

? ?

29 images - This is an "Image List"

Can you change it to a "People List" Grid View to display the Names
without click click click ? ?

No, because the names are in the title of the image. The users are not that dumb.

I didn't say you're dumb. I just thought you would think the users are too dumb to fit that out themselfs. On most of the images there are the names of the actor AND the titles. So if in any image the title misses, i can complete that. But most people will know the roles anyway. I really don't know what the real problem should be.

Hi, ACT_1.

If you mean to change the list completely from "Images" to "People", then the whole idea of this poll will be ruined: Cool Blokes only, without Favored Roles. 

If you need just to have a more comfortable look, for this press the 3-dots sign and select "Copy from this list"


Then you'll have the comfortable view, similar to the future poll's appearance:

Hey! MAthePA

I do not want to copy the list
I was just looking to see the Names & Titles without clicking on all
This may be a small problem that IMDb could fix (Just for me !!)

Hey! ACT_1
It will not be copied.
Just try.

PS: To proceed you then need to select each item. No selection, no copy.

"Favoured Roles" has to be changed to "Favored Roles" according to APA.

But maybe it would be better to use "Featured" or "Famed"

Thank you. I just used Pons.de to translate. They may have used the UK-translation. Sorry for that. ;) I changed it to favored.

Breumaster,

Thank you for updating the title of your list. I've updated the title of this thread accordingly.

IMDb uses the APA style sheet. APA (American Psychological Association) style is most commonly used to cite sources within the social sciences.

MAthePA,

Thank you for suggesting the title change.

Thank you Dan, that's kind. :D
I still have the link you sent me for correcting titles. When I'm unsure, I'm using it.
This time I was to sure to be correct. I tried the pons.de, a renowened source
and it also says: favourite. Sorry for that.

Correction:

IMDb uses AP style not APA style as I mention above.

Regardless, the corrections I asked you to make still stand. Thank you for making the corrections.

Since you haven't included Loki/Tom Hiddleston I shall have to decide between Hans Gruber/Alan Rickman and Harmonica/Charles Bronson

Hi, Gitte. :D
Thank you for your interest in this P.S. I left out characters from super heroe movies,
because if would include them, more than half of the P.S. would be super heroes and
the other interesting roles of cool actors with cool roles would be left out in the
current hype. ;) Thank you for telling your choice. They're both pretty cool !

I really like this idea. I'd suggest omitting "all of them:" it makes the poll less interesting, I think, and probably very few would choose it. 

FYC:

Samuel L. Jackson as Jules: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000168/mediaviewer/rm756973568
(I'd strongly suggest this option for a few reasons.)

Hi, ruby.
I made that option 'Stan The Man', which was his nickname, according to IMDb.
Better? :D

Yes, I definitely think so. 

I would still encourage you to include Jackson in some role, though. (Jules from 'Pulp Fiction' would be the logical choice and a big vote-getter, however there are many other roles.) The list is very white and I can't see a justification for including a few actors like Chuck Norris without including such a big box-office draw like Jackson.

It wasn't my intention to be racist. I can still skip some on the list. And put in more black dudes, no thing. They should have proven their entertainment-factor. Like Will Smith or Idris Elba. Maybe you want to suggest a few more black roles? I guess 3 or 4 more are ok. But I also don't want to loose to many of the old options.

Typo in #15: Detective Somerset 

Also, is the last option really necessary?

Breumaster,
instead of the last "Simpson" option,
I suggest Leonardo DiCaprio:

Chief Anderton is on option 34 now and 'The Revenant' is on option 16.
I wonder how I could have left out Leo. That's heretic. The next wonder is: Why did it take so long, someone complained about?

Your first wonder might be stronger after voting, when Leo is in top 5 ;)
For the "so long", I don't know... Perhaps it was one of the days when someone (not you) told that MAthePA leaves no options for others when suggesting 8/
