f?id=499340ea796c7ade00625ae9

Forbes and research firm Erdos & Morgan polled the entertainment industry and came up a with a list of 1,400 actors ranked by their abilities to attract financing, guarantee distribution, drive box office performance and help land DVD and TV distribution deals.

The the list’s flaw is that its so backward looking. Angelia Jolie and Tobey Maguire are the only actors under 35 in the top 30. Jack Nicholson, 71, and Clint Eastwood, 78, are in the top 20.

And they deserve it. But what we want to know is which actors will drive revenues for the next 20 years?
