Thank you!
Thanks to everyone who voted in this tournament! This is the 3rd actor tourney I've done, so I'm glad to see it's not yet a boring topic (RDJ actually won the Favorite American Actor, for those who voted for him :D). I truly appreciate your encouragement, enthusiasm, participation, and patience.
