A super random question but I was kinda curious who are the big actors that play poker. I've seen some at the main event but that never means they take it seriously.

I know Ben Affleck won a big tourney a couple of years ago and Meg Tilley is also a pretty good player. He still acts, not sure about Meg>

Mimi Rogers is on the board of the World Poker Tour and she definitely takes it seriously. I agree with bigjay2007 that Meg Tilly is pretty good, I see her often on the Poker Central.

I'm thinking that James Wood is a very good poker player. I've seen him on television several times and I know he's cashed, as well as the actor whose last name is Pollock. He was The Usual Suspects.

From what I've read Toby Maguire is a pretty good cash player albeit a sore loser and a bit of a dick at the table.

Gabe Kaplan does good job talking about the table and playing on it.

Ya Kaplan has been playing all kinds of diff poker games forever so he is actually pretty good, but I think James Woods is probably the best. He used to play quite a bit in the LA card rooms.

:eek: At least I can on occasion fool me self. Not often mind, but on occasion.:)

:p

I'm still shoving into AA or KK, today was KK's turn in a $1.10 R+A and with about 22 till the money I went from top 10 (around 6th) to out at 57th with AQ for a 103k pot and the chip lead. :( loonies were shoving crap and hitting and I was hoping for a loon to call my shove pre.

I need to learn that method acting style that's all the rage, maybe my poker will improve.

:(

Jennifer Tilley. While playing nlhe, seems like she's always got a big pair!

A close 2nd would be Kenzie. She's a very good player from what I hear too.

Affleck and Kaplan probably. I'm actually working with a celebrity actor right now teaching them to play for the new Molly's game movie that is going to begin shooting in a few weeks. I'm going to be playing in a hollywood home game here soon with some of the peeps mentioned in here, so I'll try and report back and let you know how they actually do play. :)

I think Matt Damon, he is one of the best actors. But when he plays poker, he cant's act or play at all ))))
