    Love Hanks, but I think Leo really puts the work in. Serious Hanks is the same guy in his serious roles.

    This is the toughest first round matchup. DiCaprio has some pretty extreme character differences and so does Hanks. I think my pick for Hanks really falls more on his ability to play foreign characters and that he's been doing it longer.

    Random matchups since y'all were rude to me on the nominations thread I didn't have the courage to make a rankings thread

    When I was younger, Hanks was always my favorite. And he'll always be one of the best.

    But when I saw The Departed in high school, Leo became my favorite. And he continued doing awesome stuff, getting robbed of Oscars until last year.

    The fact he could pull off the role in Gilbert Grape at that age told you he was gonna be a legend.
