Tough choice–they’ve all done some good movies (& Ben Affleck some really bad ones). I’ll have to go with Tommy Lee Jones as he seems to do a good mix of both comedy and drama (although I always think of him as the cop from The Fugitive–and hear that “search every out house, hen house…in this area” speech in my head whenever I see his name). (Chris Cooper I always think of as the dad from October Sky.)
Tommy Lee Jones…he has been in alot of great movies.
Chris Cooper is my choice. A few years ago, I would have said Tommy Lee Jones, but the past few years he has lost his footing in his choice of roles. Ben Affleck is talented but doesn’t have a consistent body of work. Chris Cooper however is brilliant in just about everything. He has great range and is one of the few classic character actors working today.
Tommy Lee; he has the most sincere and been through a lot face and demeanor which makes him a great actor.
TOMMY LEE- GENUINE ACTING AND TALENT- he has and does a variety and perserveres
Of course, Tommy Lee Jones!
Ben Affleck! He is a stud ;)

I like the Ben Affleck character because I can relate to being laid off.:(
I definitely love the work of Chris Cooper. He has such a presence, and intensity that should be discovered more. He also gave incredible performances in “Adaptation”, “Breach”, and “American Beauty”.
I have always thought Tommy Lee Jones is an excellent actor!He can be both serious and comical!
ben affleck cause he used to date jlo
Tommy Lee Jones..He has always been one of my top actors to watch..If I see a new movie with him in it I just know it will be worth the time I spent watching it….I love Tommy lee Jones in every movie he has been in..I can have a ten minute memory flash as I think about him ans all the great movies he has been apart of…
Ben Affleck just because I’ve always loved Ben Affleck lol!
Tommy Lee Jones. He is a wonderful actor who completely becomes whatever character he is playing.
I like Tommie Lee Jones because of his versatility as an actor.
Tommy Lee Jones is my favorite because hes such a good actor
Tommy Lee Jones. He is a rugged and versatile actor.
Tommy Lee Jones. I have always liked the characters he plays.
Tommy Lee Jones- the best actor of the 3.
Tommy Lee Jones cause he has power even without speaking
Tommy Lee Jones, he’s such a great actor
My favorite is Tommy Lee Jones. He isn’t afraid to take a variety of roles and i love his voice.
I like Ben Affleck but as a favorite of the three it would have to be Tommy Lee Jones. The reasons? Well, he is a very versitile actor; a believeable actor. Not the usual “pretty boy” leading man, he is more of the “everyday man” leading man. He acts equally well in comedies as he does dramas and thrillers and lastly, he is a Texan as am I also. So, here is one for the homeboy!
My favorite is Tommy Lee Jones.
I love the diversity of characters that he has played over the years.
Tommy Lee Jones. There’s a certain rugged sex appeal to him, I like his somewhat craggy face and the way he carries himself.
Chris Cooper – his acting talent is obvious
tommy lee jones, even when he’s not trying to be funny he still is, been a fan since wayyy back
Chris Cooper-such an underrated actor
Tommy Lee Jones is my favorite because he’s a classic and has played such a great range of roles.
Chris Cooper–always great, and in Adaptation he was so different!
Tommy Lee Jones-He can immerse himself into so many character roles and really make you believe the character is real.
I’m going with the characters instead of the actors. Ben AFfleck’s character was delusional, spoiled and rude to the brother-in-law who offered him the carpentry job so he’s OUT. Tommy Lee Jones’ character is definitely out due to the greed and callous disregard of his friends and co-founders. This leaves us with an easy winner – Chris Cooper’s character is the heart of the movie (perhaps a title shared with Ben Affleck’s wife). Bummer about the garage scene. Chris Cooper wins by a landslide.
