There are a lot of good actors on this list, Paul Rudd was good in Role Models and Will Ferrell is always funny. Lukin 4 years Hands down, RDJ. He was unbelievably hilarious in Tropic Thunder, but it was also great acting. alexlove 5 years RUSSELL BRAND IS GOD. alexlove 5 years RUSSELL BRAND IS GOD. spicyaroma 5 years Paul Rudd :) He always makes me laugh I can't stand Russell Brand, he's not funny at all. spicyaroma 5 years Paul Rudd :) He always makes me laugh I can't stand Russell Brand, he's not funny at all. cherrypop 5 years Steve Carell, for sure! cherrypop 5 years Steve Carell, for sure! ilanac13 5 years i LOVE russell brand. i know that a lot of people didn't like what he did at the VMAs and i don't think that it was the best representation of him - but otherwise - i think that he's really funny! TheEnchantedOne 5 years Steve Carell! I loved Get Smart and everyone that I saw it with enjoyed the movie. We were laughing all the way to the end. I appreciate that the humor is for everyone, it's not offensive or anything like that. Steve Carell was great in it. Black Velveteen 5 years Gotta go with Craig Robinson! I absolutely loved him as Darryl on The Office and he was hilarious in Knocked Up, Zack & Miri and Daddy's Little Girls. Whenever I see him in a movie, I know a good laugh is always gauranteed. :) It's so good to see a refreshing new face on the comedy scene. californiagirlx7 5 years This was Robert Downey Jr.'s year. I loved Iron Man and Tropic Thunder. Allyace 5 years Hard choice, but I went with RDJ b/c I love him and am so glad that things are going well for him again. reesiecup 5 years James Franco is such a comedic gem! His funnyordie.com videos always get me. And he's rather easy on the eyes as well ;) niqua230 5 years I chose RDJ because I loved Tropic Thunder and Iron man! James Franco was amazing in Pineapple! QUESTION to Gregwashere what was Robin Williams in this? amybdk 5 years Robert Downey Jr. with Franco in a close second. Jude C 5 years Paul Rudd. But Franco in Pineapple Express really pleasantly surprised me. Sad to say, I am so over the Seth Rogen thing. kafarine-tin-tin 5 years I love, love, love Craig Robinson and Steve Carrell but I had to go with Robert Downey Jr. NOt only was he funny in Tropic Thunder, but Iron Man aswell. GREGWASHERE2 5 years other: Robin Williams sugarbox 5 years RUSSELL BRAND. definitely, never ceases to make me laugh. krae85 5 years I heard that tropic thunder was racist and full of low-brow humor and didn't see it because it got so many bad reviews. I really like Paul Rudd! Lily Inferno 5 years Russell Brand, Paul Rudd or Jason Segal. Too hard to choose EkaterinaBallerina 5 years I chose Robert Downey Jr because I thought Tropic Thunder was absolutely hysterical. But it was close with Jason Segel. He was so funny in Forgetting Sarah Marshall. soulight 5 years Most of the laugh out loud moments in 'Zack and Miri' was due to Craig Robinson. I love him in the 'Office' as well.
