Which do you prefer? Let us know in the comments section


  1. Both are very good actors but since I've seen more work from Law, I'm going with him.

  2. Ewan McGregor, Renton beats any of Law's performances hands down.

  3. Ewan McGregor. He has had quite a few more memorable performances.

  4. Probably the toughest of these I can recall. Both I think are SUPREMELY underrated performers and both rank among my favourite actors who've done fine work opposite Nicole Kidman. For a period of time Jude was my favourite actor, and I do think of his age-range he's the best "actor" there is but for some reason he hasn't been getting any solid roles recently, Ewan was so good recently in Beginners and has some films coming out so. I'm undecided.

    Based on those lists, Ewen for me.
    Beginners and Big Fish are fantastic. I hear Trainspotting is great as well...

    Jude's list is a bit lacking. Hugo was a bust, plus he's barely in it. Contagion, Enemy at the Gates, and Talented Mr. Ripley were good but they cant compare to Beginners and Big my opinion.

  6. Ewan McGregor. He doesn't try to be smug or fashionable like Law though nothing against the guy.

    The fact that McGregor can actually play Obi-Wan Kenobi, a junkie, a variation of Iggy Pop, a ghost writer, a musical writer, an unconventional storyteller, and a journalist who might have psychic powers is more than enough for me to pick him. Plus, he's funny and can sing.

  7. McGregor all the way.

  8. Ditto. McGregor. Law's been in plenty of flicks that I dig, but Ewan has as well, and has always been a more appealing actor to me.

  9. I'm not a huge Jude Law fan, but I've got to give him all of the credit in the world for his portrayal of Watson in the Sherlock Holmes films. I think him and Robert Downey Jr. make a wonderful onscreen team.

    I'll always think of 'Trainspotting' first when Ewan McGregor comes to mind. Talk about hitting the mainstream with an unforgettable film.

  10. I'm going with Ewan McGregor. Check him out in the recent movie Beginners.
