<![CDATA[The Best Actresses Working Today]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-actresses-working-today/carlybobarly
List of the best actresses working today, ranked. This list includes many of the greatest actresses in film history, but more importantly, focuses on modern female stars. Hollywood today features a new crop of popular and respected young actresses who command strong female roles that hold their own on the big screen.

While many of the talented women on this list are among familiar favorites (Meryl, Tilda, Glenn...), others are not quite yet household names, even if they have been nominated for - or even won! - Oscars for their performances. This list includes the top female actors who have had starring roles in the last few years, both in film and TV (like "Homeland" star / Emmy award winner Claire Danes).

The recent performances of these women have been widely acclaimed, even if their individual films or works were otherwise ignored. Vote up those actresses who you believe have contributed the most to the presence of strong female characters in film, and be sure to add any who we missed...

<![CDATA[Actors Who Almost Got the Part in a DC Film]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/actors-who-were-almost-in-dc-films/ranker-comics
Casting is truly an art form. Each and every cast member from starring, to supporting, to day-player, affects the entire tone of the film. What would Bruce Wayne be without Christian Bale, who was up against a number of actors on this list for the role? Casting is everything, and the actors on this list couldn't make the cut for the role of any number of DC heroes and villains.

These are all of the shadows of that ideal, the people who were ALMOST legends, who almost had action figures and multi-picture deals and ten year contracts. These are the people who, for one reason or another, didn't end up playing these great characters of the comic book world. 

Which actors almost became DC's film heroes and villains? Their films went on to be made, not ending up on the list of comic book movies we never saw, but the actors and actresses listed here weren't part of the fun. Which of these stars do you wish you had seen in Marvel hero and villain roles? Cast your votes below!

http://www.ranker.com/list/actors-who-were-almost-in-dc-films/ranker-comics,

Adrianne Palicki
Cast as: Wonder Woman

A Wonder Woman TV show actually happened! Not long ago, in the same vein as "Smallville," "Arrow," and "Flash." However, budget issues, costume issues, and fan reactions kept it from ever airing even a single episode.
Bill Murray
Considered for: Batman

Back before Tim Burton got his hands on Batman he was known (in the TV world) for campy, "BANG! POW!" style humor (nothing like the comics). Who better for a wacky camp hero dressed like a bat than Bill Murray?
David Bowie
Considered for: The Joker

We would probably still pay to see this, 25 years later. David Bowie as the Clown Prince of Crime! A little bit Ziggy Stardust a dash of Labyrinth and a whole lot of crazy, as directed by Tim Burton? Yes, please.
Henry Cavill
Considered for: Batman

What's that you say? But he's Superman? At one point he was called the unluckiest man in Hollywood, as he was up for (and usually in the top 3 for) Batman, Bond, Edward Cullen, and many another huge roles in tentpole films roles before finally booking Superman... the second time he went out for it (he was in the running for the role Brandon Routh landed).

Megan Gale
Cast as: Wonder Woman

Gale was part of the cast of the failed George Miller (Mad Max) directed Justice League movie. The movie was fully cast, sets were being constructed, and pre-production was winding down with production of the film about to start, when two things happened: 

1) The movie costs ballooned to an enormous $300 million and 
2) it failed to procure its tax breaks.

Mel Gibson
Considered for: Batman

Another rare occurrence on this list of a casting choice that might have actually worked. Back when they were gearing up to make Tim Burton's first Batman, Mel Gibson was one of the most sought after actors in town. He could have made a really dynamic Bruce and Batman.
Paul Newman
Considered for: Superman

In the 70s, before Christopher Reeve was eventually cast, the most common named tossed around  for the role of the Man of Steel was Paul Newman. He was also reportedly in talks to play Jimmy Olsen at one point, with Robert Redford as Superman.
Robin Williams
Considered for: The Riddler

Pursued by the studio (apparently) for the original Tim Burton films, then by Robin Williams himself for the Chris Nolan iterations (Williams and Nolan worked together on Insomnia). Williams even said he'd be an extra in a Nolan Batman film. His Riddler could have been game-changing, sadly it never came to pass.
Sandra Bullock
Considered for: Wonder Woman

At one point in the mid-90s, we were ever so close to actually having a Wonder Woman movie come to light. After a long casting process including big names like Jennifer Aniston, Sandra Bullock was rumored to be the Amazonian princess, with Ivan Reitman directing. Then talks fell apart, Bullock reportedly didn't want to wear the costume and the whole movie disappeared.
Steve Carell
Considered for: The Joker

Another name that was tossed around a lot right before the official announcement of Heath Ledger as the Joker was Steve Carrell. He's certainly got the sense of humor, but it would've been a very different take on the character.

<![CDATA[The One I Love Movie Quotes]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/the-one-i-love-movie-quotes/movie-and-tv-quotes
"The One I Love" movie quotes tell the story of a couple who heads to a weekend marriage retreat and discover something quite unexpected. The romantic comedy was written by Justin Lader and directed by Charlie McDowell. After premiering at the Sundance Film Festival, "The One I Love" opened in theaters on August 22, 2014.

In "The One I Love," the marriage between couple Ethan (Mark Duplass) and Sophie (Elisabeth Moss) is on the rocks. They seek out the help of a therapist to work out some of their issues and he (Ted Danson) recommends that they visit a specific weekend retreat at which he's seen great success with other couples.

Sophie and Ethan head out to this retreat but what they find when they enter the house is nothing less than extraordinary. It changes both of them deeply, so much that they make plans to return again. But instead of bringing them closer together, it forces both of them to a decision that could ultimately tear them apart.

"The One I Love" opens alongside a bunch of other great films including "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," "If I Stay," "When the Game Stands Tall," "Are You Here," "The Expendables 3," "Let's Be Cops," "Life After Beth," "Frank," "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," "The Hundred-Foot Journey "Guardians of the Galaxy," "Get On Up," "Hercules," "Lucy," "Magic in the Moonlight," "A Most Wanted Man," "Happy Christmas," "Planes: Fire & Rescue," "Sex Tape," "Wish I Was Here, "And So It Goes, and "Dawn of Planet of the Apes."
http://www.ranker.com/list/the-one-i-love-movie-quotes/movie-and-tv-quotes,

Is It Like Another Dimension
Sophie: "Is it like another dimension, when you go through the door?"
Ethan: "You want to go back?"
Sophie: "This is something we've been talking about, creating a new relationship."
Ethan: "I imagined like horseback riding with a little satchel of wine, you know? Not some weird version of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?"

When Sophie talks about returning to the retreat, this revelation shocks Ethan. Sophie claims she is going there to work on their relationship but this type of therapy isn't what Ethan had in mind.
A Weird Fight Last Night
Ethan: "Hey"
Sophie: "Good morning, handsome"
Ethan: "Well, I'm hungover."
Sophie: "Well then it sounds like you need some breakfast."
Ethan: "Not that we need to get back into it but, that was a little bit of a weird fight last night."
Sophie: "I know."
Ethan: "I don't really understand what happened but I feel like maybe we just chalk it up to some bad pot-alcohol combo. Put it behind us and not let it ruin the trip."
Sophie: "Agreed, totally"
Ethan: "Cool… That being said, it was one of the weirder fights we had."
Sophie: "Oh my god, I know"
Ethan: "Crazy, right? I mean, I still don't fully understand whether you were so drunk and stoned that you thought we had sex or were you just making a joke and it backfired?"
Sophie: "Honestly, I think it was just one of those things. You know?"
Ethan: "One of those things? No, I'm asking you, was it that you were drunk and stoned or was it playing a joke cause I'm still confused. What happened?"
Sophie: "I think the important thing is that we fought, you know, we made up, we had a nice cuddle, it's a beautiful day."
Ethan: "Sophie, what are you talking about? We had a fight and you stormed out and we didn't make up."
Sophie: "Baby, are you okay?"
Ethan: "I'm fine. Are you okay?"
Sophie: "Okay, Mr. Hangover, I think it's time for some food. Let's get something in your stomach."
Ethan: "You're kind of freaking me out a little bit, Sophie. I've gotta say. Is that bacon?"
Sophie: "Yeah"
Ethan: "You hate it when I eat bacon."

After one of the most bizarre night's of their lives, Ethan and Sophie seem to have very different memories of what really went down. While drugs and alcohol were involved, perhaps their location had something to do with this as well.
Just Dipping Our Toes In
Ethan: "So since we're just dipping our toes in there, I think we shouldn't spend too much time in there the first go round."
Sophie: "Okay, how's 15 minute sound?"
Ethan: "Okay, I think that's good."

Ethan: "Whoa, fascinating!"
Sophie: "Tell me"

During their first visit to the retreat property, they try to limit their exposure to what lies within. Ethan's first experience, even in a 15-minute span, is nothing short of magical.
It's So Weird
Sophie: "It's so weird."
Ethan: "It's really odd."

Sophie and Ethan both try to process what they experienced at the retreat but are unable to put it into words. They can agree that it is very strange, but are unable to pinpoint much more than that.
It's Like a Perfect Retreat
Therapist: "It's like a perfect retreat, just the two of you. I've sent a lot of couples there and they've all come back really renewed."

Their marriage therapist describes the couples retreat to them as a place where other of his clients have found success. He does not, however, elaborate on the utterly bizarre things they will encounter there.
An Exercise In Trust
Ethan: "We'll make up some ground rules."
Sophie: "Okay, no spying. We'll be honest with each other about what happens in the house."
Ethan: "It's like an exercise in trust."

When they do agree to return to the retreat, they set some ground rules. You know what they say about rules? They're meant to be broken.
I'm Not Leaving
Ethan: "How do you see this playing out?"
Sophie: "I'm not leaving."
Ethan: "This entire weekend has been one planned trap."

Sophie had decided that she's not leaving the retreat house, a decision that Ethan isn't liking. He feels like she fabricated their return to the house to trap him so she could stay. Not cool, Sophie.
It Was Kind of Magical
Sophie: "It was kind of magical."
Ethan: "We also had a fantastic time when we did ecstasy but we're not going to do that everyday of our lives cause you'd die."
Sophie: "Right"

The couple discusses returning to the retreat because of the crazy experiences they had there. As Ethan reminds them, sometimes too much of a good thing can have it's consequences.

A list of the worst celebrity baby names to ever be inked on legal birth certificates. Fame does strange things to people, and these weird celebrity baby names might be a sign that some of these actors, musicians, and socialites have let the money, popularity, and power go to their heads. Any publicity is good, right? Unfortunately for Rocket, Camera, Muziq, and Kal-El, the other kids in kindergarten aren't generally impressed by bad baby names.

What aer the most ridiculous celebrity baby names? You may think Moxie, Zephyr, and Ocean are cool baby names, and that's fine, just vote DOWN the ones you like and vote UP the ones you think are bordering on child abuse.

<![CDATA[The Greatest Minds of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/greatest-minds-of-all-time/walter-graves
List of the Greatest Minds of All Time, throughout history. This list represents the most influential thinkers across various disciplines, ranked in a way that represents the power of their ideas and their impact on the world. The wisest men and women include top philosophers, physicists, famous poets, thinkers, teachers, physiologists, artists, inventors, engineers, the most irreplaceable CEOs in the world, economists and politicians and those whose talents span across many fields of study.

This list takes a historic perspective, so the greatest thinkers who are included on this list come from many different eras. The greatest minds of the 21st century may be quite different from great geniuses from the distant past, but each person should be judged within the context of the time that they were living. For example, inventing a new type of telephone in 2013 would not qualify one as "the most brilliant mind of all time," but in 1876 when Alexander Graham Bell first patented the telephone, it was an act of genius not seen before.

<![CDATA[The Best Acting Performances by Professional Athletes]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/athletes-turned-actors/brettdahlenburg
We're used to seeing athletes in commercials, guest spots on TV series, or even playing themselves in movie or two, but most of them go right back to what they are good at: being athletes. But there is another group of athlete-actors who have made acting into a full time career and have turned in memorable performances and even created some beloved characters. This is a list of some of the best of those performances by actors that used to be professional athletes. (Here's a complete list of athlete-turned-actors.)

With so many high octane, wizz-bang-effect-laden movies and series out there, it is no wonder that Hollywood comes a knockin' on the doors of prominent athletes who have the skills and charisma to play starring and supporting roles in some of the biggest properties out there. Many use their athletic prowess or physical appearance to aid them in their roles, while others were selected solely based on their existing fame; regardless, the actors who were athletes on this list have done something worth mentioning and certainly worth watching.

http://www.ranker.com/list/athletes-turned-actors/brettdahlenburg,

Arnold Schwarzenegger
List this one under athlete turned actor, turned politician, turned actor again. Arnold "The Governator" Schwarzenegger gained fame in the 1960's as one of the most influential bodybuilders of the time before transitioning into film.

After some so-so, albeit well known, performances in movies like Conan the Barbarian, Schwarzenegger was cast in the role that defined his career as the title character in James Cameron's breakout hit The Terminator. His buff physique made him the perfect choice to play an (almost) unstoppable robot sent from the future to murder a young woman.

Schwarzenegger left the public life for... eh... public life as the two-term governor of California. However, he brought new meaning to his most famous line "I'll be back," when he returned to acting in movies, including Sabatoge and The Expendables franchise.
Bruce Lee
World-famed martial artist Bruce Lee came to acting early through his father's career as a famous Cantonese opera star. By the age of 18, he had already appeared in 20 films, but decided to quit acting in favor of martial arts in the early 1960's.

In 1966, Lee decided to give acting another try and landed the role of Kato in the TV series "The Green Hornet." In a time when TV action consisted largely of a WHIZZ, BANG, or POW graphics instead of any real action (fans of Adam West's "Batman" know what I'm talking about) it must have been nice to see a real martial arts pro on the small screen.
Bubba Smith
NFL defensive end, Bubba Smith played pro-football for the Colts, Raiders, and Oilers between 1967 and 1976. Slap a police uniform on Smith's 6'7" and 265 pound body, and you have one hell of an intimidating cop! Or at least that's what the producers of Police Academy thought when they cast him as Officer Moses Hightower. For most of his post-NFL acting career, Smith was typecast as a variety of police officers; either making us laugh as he did in six installments of Police Academy or scaring us into obeying the law in other roles. As Cadet Barbra says, "If all cops looked like him, there'd be no crime at all."
Carl Weathers
After a brief stint in the NFL and several years on a Canadian football team (there's football in Canada? What a world!), Carl Weathers decided it was time for a career change, and luckily for the world, he gave acting a try. Until 2004, Weathers was probably best known for the Rocky film franchise, Predator, Action Jackson and the "In the Heat of the Night" series. However, a little show called "Arrested Development" introduced him to a entirely different audience and a new generation. Playing an incredibly shrewd (read: hilariously slimey) and frugal version of himself, Weathers was one of the funniest parts of an already side-stitching series. And what are his feelings on ham? Does he like it? No... he loves it.
Chuck Norris
"Fear of spiders is arachnophobia, fear of tight spaces is claustrophobia, fear of Chuck Norris is called logic." -Chuck Norris Facts

Thanks to his fists of fury and roundhouse kicks of death, the great, bearded Chuck Norris made a name for himself by becoming the Professional Middleweight Karate champion in 1968 and holding the title for six consecutive years.

In the late 1960's, Norris began his transition into acting highlighted by films such as Return of the Dragon (opposite Bruce Lee), but is probably best known for the not-at-all cheesy TV series "Walker, Texas Ranger" where he got to put his martial arts skills to good use for 10 seasons between 1993 and 2001.

Did you know that Chuck Norris counted to infinity – twice? It's a fact.
Jason Lee
Many know Jason Lee for his work in Mallrats, Almost Famous, and The Incredibles, but few may know that he was once a professional skateboarder in the late 1980's and early 1990's, even receiving a sponsorship from Airwalk shoe company alongside the great Tony Hawk.

In 2005, Lee accepted a role for a new sitcom about a lottery winner who tries to right all the wrongs his committed in his life. "My Name is Earl" ran for four seasons and earned Lee two individual SAG award nominations as well as two Golden Globe nominations. Suck on that, Tony Hawk.
Lou Ferrigno
Former Mr. America and two-time Mr. Universe, bodybuilder Lou Ferrigno was the perfect choice to play the title character in the 1977 TV series "The Incredible Hulk," based on the Marvel comic book character. In the days before CGI, big green monster men had to be played by big monster men in green makeup. Ferrigno has made an entire career out of his Hulk character – after the series ended in 1982, he continued playing The Hulk in several made-for-TV movies and even a 1990's animated series. Most recently, Ferrigno lent his voice to the CGI version of the character in 2008's The Incredible Hulk and to 2013's The Avengers.
Terry Crews
Former NFL linebacker Terry Crews only played four seasons of professional football (for four different teams) before calling it quits. Luckily, he was able to leverage that fame into a much more successful acting career.

Since 1997, Crews has appeared in dozens of TV series, movies, music videos, and even video games, but had his longest run co-staring in all four seasons of the Chris Rock narrated sitcom "Everybody Loves Chris" for which he was nominated for four NAACP Image Awards.
Dwayne Johnson
Depending on your views, "Professional Wrestling" could be called a sport, or it could be called an elaborate reality TV show. In any case, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has consistently maintained his athletic prowess; especially in the pro-wrestling world where he made his name before transitioning into more traditional acting roles.

Johnson, who has since tried to shake his "The Rock" moniker, broke into legitimate acting with a supporting role in the 2001 hit The Mummy Returns where his convincing performance spawned its own spinoff franchise, The Scorpion King. While it will be a some time before he claims his acting Oscar®, Johnson's toned body and sharp wit make him perfect for any action genre film or even a quirky family comedy.
Vinnie Jones
Well known footballer (that's soccer to us Americans), Vinnie Jones, made his name playing for some of the UK's most notorious teams, including Wimbledon, Leeds United, and Chelsea. In 1998, however, first-time director Guy Ritchie cast him in the very British cult hit Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, and a star was born! Jones was equal parts funny and intimidating as the eloquently spoken hired muscle/devoted father, Big Chris. Jones was so good, Ritchie cast him a couple years later in his follow up film, Snatch, and Jones has been acting ever since.

As Big Chris would say, "It's been emotional."

<![CDATA[Actors Who Should Be Considered for The Defenders Series]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/actors-who-should-be-cast-on-the-netflix-defenders-shows/ranker-comics
Netflix is gearing up to launch Marvel's TV universe in a big way. Yes, they have "Agents of SHIELD;" yes, they also have "Agent Carter" gearing up. But where are the superheroes?

Netflix is bringing us not one, not two, but FOUR new original series featuring characters that eventually gather up into the rag-tag team known as "The Defenders." It's a great move to sum up years of comic books with 10, hour-long episodes, instead of just throwing a bunch of characters into a single, 2-hour movie (looking at you, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice).

So who should play Luke Cage? Iron Fist? Jessica Jones? Daredevil? (We know they already cast Daredevil, and he's included here, but we want your votes as to whether or not they cast him right!) Vote up your favorite casting choice!
http://www.ranker.com/list/actors-who-should-be-cast-on-the-netflix-defenders-shows/ranker-comics,

Cam Gigandet
As Iron Fist:

This guy was born to play Iron Fist. He's an incredible fighter, he's in insane shape, and he has the look of Danny Rand.
Jennifer Carpenter
As Jessica Jones:

The "Dexter" alum hasn't really gotten the chance to flex her acting muscles on any other characters yet. She's played a really versatile and multi-faceted cop (especially in the questionable later seasons) and has a great comic look.
Jensen Ackles
As Iron Fist:

Since "Supernatural" started, people have been lobbying to get Jensen Ackles to play a superhero. He's certainly got the look and personality of Danny Rand.
Jessica Biel
As Jessica Jones:

She's incredibly fit, she has a strong maternal-ness without losing her badassery, and could use a Blade Trinity-like role that isn't in Blade Trinity.
Michael Jai White
As Luke Cage:

Anytime an African American comic book character comes up, one name must be mentioned: Michael Jai White. He's been Spawn, a goon in The Dark Knight, and has lobbied for Luke Cage since the 90s.
Ryan Kwanten
As Daredevil:

A noted comic fan with the following, the physique, and chops to pull off The Man without Fear.
Scott Porter
As Iron Fist:

He's got the build, the physicality, and the cult following. This guy needs to be a superhero already.
Billy Brown
As Luke Cage:

Another "Dexter" alum, he's gotten a lot of buzz surrounding him in regards to the role. He's certainly got the look and the attitude.
Michael C Hall
As Daredevil:

This guy was born to play Daredevil – the coloring, the look, the voice, the physicality – it's all there with Hall. Daredevil is a dark hero that deals with the scum of Hell's kitchen. Michael C Hall's inherent darkness would lend itself perfectly.
Richard Madden
As Daredevil:
