Recommended Posts

Dustin Hoffman

Dana Carvey (Even though he don't do much anymore)

Norm MacDonald

Steve Carell

Chevy Chase (Even though he's a jackass)

And the granddaddy of them all...

Bill Freaking Murray!

But, making this list was hard. Because alot of my favorite actors are dead.

Among my faves, and in no particular order:

Carroll O'Connor

Peter Falk

George C Scott

Dick Van Dyke

John Goodman

Jackie Gleason

James Garner

Spencer Tracy

Angela Lansbury

Meryl Streep

Madeline Kahn

Carol Burnett (I know Carol made guest appearances on AMC, but she wasn't a regular. I'm also going on the assumption that starring in the soap spoof Fresno doesn't disqualify her from being on the list.)
