It’s been a while now since I wanted to do a post about my favorite comedy actors :D I remembered again after watching the trailer for “This is the end”,starring a lot of my favorite comedians, amongst others Emma Watson as well! Big Win!!!
Plus, the movie is from the producers of “The pineapple express” which belongs to one of my most favorite comedy movies :’D If you want to die from laughing, I recommend you to watch this :’D
So now to begin with my favorite comedy actors (The order doesn’t say anything about my preference, it would be too hard to decide):
1. James Franco:
I know, he is not solely a comedy movie actor, but he became famous after that comedy tv-series “Freaks and Geeks” which I still haven’t watched yet :/ The first movie I saw from him was probably “Spider Man”, but then I didn’t fancy him that much. I think after the hype for Franco began in women magazines, it caught my attention. For the next Spider Man movie, it was the third and last with Tobey Maguire and James Franco, I paid attention to him a lot. And then I started to watch a lot of his movies. Pineapple Express was the funniest one, and 127 hours was the most epic one. Although the quality of his movies seem to lessen, he still is funny and super hot! So thumbs up for James Franco!
Franco’s funniest movie: “The Pineapple Express”
2. Seth Rogen:
Seth Rogen doesn’t even have to say ANYTHING since he has that funny face on him :’D He is one of the most hilarious actors with a lot of comedy movies. He has the looks of a funny guy who is fun to be with. I think there was no movie from him I didn’t like and he has starred in many famous comedy movies like “The 40-year-old virgin”, “Superbad”, “You, me and Dupree”, and “Pineapple Express”. I loved all of them to be hones :’D But the first movie I saw of him was “Knocked Up” with Katherine Heigl. At first watching, I didn’t know if I liked the movie, since I was quite disgusted by the birth scene, but afterwards I really thought that the movie was very funny :’D He stayed on my mind until my first watch of “The Pineapple Express” after which I became a huge fan of him :’D
Rogen’s funniest movie: It really is hard to say, but it is also “The Pineapple Express”
3. Steve Carell:
I love Steve Carell!!! When I see a movie that stars him, I will immediately watch it! He is one of the funniest actors I know, and if I would have to say spontaneously who the funniest actor is in my opinion, I would say Steve Carrell, without hesitation. Every single movie I watched from him is funny. The first movie I watched, was “Bewitched”. It wasn’t his funniest though. “Little Miss Sunshine” convinced me however of his humour. After seeing him there, I became a fan of him :) And after “Date Night”, “Crazy, stupid, love” and “Dinner for Schmucks” I began to really admire him!!! I still have to watch a few movies of him, like “Get smart” but I think the funniest ones I have seen :D
Carell’s funniest movie: I really, really can’t decide, since a lot of those movies are funny for their own. That’s why I will decide upon his funniest performance which was in “Crazy, Stupid, Love” I think :’D It was a tight decision between that an “Date Night”. In “Dinner for Schmucks” he was also very funny, but because I have a dislike against Paul Rudd, I didn’t want to choose this :’D And although “Little Miss Sunshine” belongs to my favorite movies, I haven’t chose it, because his performance was quite passive in this.
4. Jonah Hill:
One could really say that he is the little brother of Jason Segel :D They really look alike and are both busy with comedy movies :D I don’t quite know which movie was the first I saw of him, but I think it was “The 40-year-old virgin”. After “Get him to the Greek” I became aware of him and noticed that he played in “Superbad”. After realising that Seth Rogen was also starring in that movie, I started to search for that movie in the internet to watch it. After finishing it, I almost died of laughing too hard. He’s definitely on his best way for becoming a famous comedy actor.
Hill’s funniest movie: “Superbad”! It became hard to decide between that and “21 Jump Street” which I have also enjoyed, and which is also pretty new. But Superbad was just epic!
5. Michael Cera:
Michael Cera really has made it. He has become one of the most famous young comedians. I enjoyed every movie of him, beginning with the first I saw from him, “Juno” to the latest I have seen from him which was “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World”. Both and everything in-between were overly funny and clever, just perfect for his roles, in which he always seems so smart but not in a nerdy way of thinking that he is the smartest one, but in a shy way of not being quite sure about his intelligence :D I wonder if he even makes an effort to play his roles, or if it is his normal behaviour. That’s the question I always ask myself!
Cera’s funniest movie: “Juno”. Although I have only seen three movies of him, it really was hard to decide. Since I have already mentioned “Superbad” I also thought about “Scott Pilgrim”, but then I decided that I enjoyed “Juno” more :D
6. Owen Wilson:
Owen Wilson, the cute, funny, blond guy who gets into the hearts of everyone, if children or adults, if men or women, everyone love him! That is nothing to be astonished about since he has such a diverse filmography. From comedy classics like “Meet the parents”, “Meet the Fockers”, The Wedding Crashers”, “You, me, and Dupree”, to action-Kung-Fu-fights in “Shanghai Noon”, Shanghai Knights”, and “In 80 days around the world” up until love stories like “How do you know” and “Midnight in Paris”. I enjoyed all of those movies, and except for Jackie Chan, he has almost always been the highlight of the movies. Especially in “How do you know” I liked only the scenes in which he appeared. “The Wedding Crashers” was one of his funniest movies I think, and “You, me and Dupree” was newer but didn’t lack the amount of humour from his earlier appearances. “Midnight in Paris”, a Woody-Allen-movie was beautiful and gave it a humorous charme thanks to Mr. Wilson :) So, as you noticed, I have a high admiration for that actor and enjoy every single one of his movies.
Wilson’s funniest movie: The newest and funniest one, “The internship”. DROP-DEAD-FUNNY!!!
7. Emma Stone:
Here she comes!!! The funniest of the females (The only one to be precise). In the first movie I have watched of her, “Zombieland”, I immediately fell in love with her. She was so cool and funny at the same time. Her acting was perfect and very simple. I really wish a part 2 of that movie, or another movie together with Jesse Eisenberg :D After that, many other funny movies followed, like “Easy A”, “Friends with benefits”, and Movie 43 (which I didn’t like so much like I have expected). She also had an important role in the literate movie “The help” which I have also read afterwards. In “Crazy, Stupid, Love” she has proved her seductive side, in which she twists Ryan Gosling around her finger. Then, the biggest offer came with the “Spider Man” – movies and probably the luck of her life in the shape of Andrew Garfield. Two hotties who have found each other. I still hope that they will continue their relationship in future (and Emma won’t get distracted by Ryan Gosling too much, since they’re making many movies together, although they would also fit together).
Stone’s funniest movie: “Easy A”. I almost said “Zombieland”, but I think her performance is a bit passive in that. And her humour appears great in “Easy A”.
8. Christopher Mintz-Plasse
When I think of Christopher Mintz-Plasse, I think of his epic appearance as McLoving in “Superbad” and have to laugh immediately :’DDD Just alone for that performance, he is worth to be called one of the best upcoming young comedians. Furthermore, he has starred in another epic comedy-action movie: “Kick-Ass”. I loved that movie, and can’t anticipate already to watch the second part. I am really looking forward to his next movies.
Mintz-Plasse’s funniest movie: Although “Kick-Ass” is one of the best teen-superhero-movies, it was “Superbad” that was his best movie, since he had the funniest role in that movie :’D
9. Zack Galifianakis:
So, here he is! The most successful comedian right now. While many people only know him of the Hangover-movies, he has more to offer. He has also played in the movie together with Steve Carell, “Dinner for Schmucks”. And I have begun to watch “It’s kind of a funny story” but couldn’t finish it. In “Due Date” he certainly took the cake! Together with Rober Downey Jr. That movie was definitely his funniest one. I think it was funnier than the Hangover-movies, although the second one really was hilarious :’D
Galifianaki’s funniest movie: “Due Date”
10. Jason Segel:
Jason ‘the seagull’ Segel, the secret star of “How I met your mother”. He really has this typical kind of humour that will let the sun shine brighter. He was also part of the tv-series “Freaks and Geeks” that I want to watch as soon as possible. Besides “Knocked Up” or “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” he has made a lot of movies in the last few months and years like “Bad Teacher”, “Friends with Benefits”, “Jeff who lives at home”, and “The Muppets”. I still want to watch a few movies of him, that I didn’t, but I am always waiting like crazy for his new movies or the new HIMYM episodes.
Segel’s funniest movie: “Bad Teacher”
So, that was it! I hope I didn’t forget anyone.
Who are your favorite comedy actors? Do you also have a few female comedians that I didn’t mention? And what are your favorite movies of those stars?
