article imageDenzel Washington named favorite actor; John Wayne still on list

By Tim O'Brien     Jan 24, 2013 in Entertainment
When it comes to the Harris Poll of favorite actors, one thing is constant - John Wayne. The Duke is always on the list and this time around, he is No. 6.
The top of the heap belongs to Denzel Washington, however. Clint Eastwood always seems to be solid on the list even after last year's media storm. He spoke to an empty chair at the Republican National Convention, but that didn't seem to hurt him as he is No.2. Tom Hanks is No. 3. Meanwhile, Johnny Depp, former No. 1, is no longer in that spot. He falls to No 4.
The list
1. Denzel Washington
2. Clint Eastwood
3. Tom Hanks
4. Johnny Depp
5. Brad Pitt
6. John Wayne
7. George Clooney
8. Harrison Ford
9. Meryl Streep
10. Matt Damon
As one can see, only one female makes the list with Streep. This list is for 2012. Dropping out were Sandra Bullock (7), Will Smith (9) and Adam Sandler (10).
Now, time for the breakdown.
