for me, without a doubt, Harrison Ford in his prime.

even though he still looks good, his production is sorely lacking of late...De Niro.
would also save Paul Newman.

Too late, I already saved Monica Bellucci.

I would love to have 45 year old Chuck Norris back.

Heath Ledger or Philip Seymour Hoffman. They should have given us a few more great performances.

I think you're missing the point of the question. Ledger dies young and was never affected by the "ravages of time". Hoffman died somewhat young as well and while his acting career was at its peak. These actors could have been saved from theravages of drug addiction, not time.

I would go with Harison Ford as well. And if we could keep Megan Fox from being affected by age that would be great too.

My obvious answer is Harrison Ford.

But thinking back to all the great times I had watching movies in my teens I’d say a mid-90s John Travolta is hard to beat for pure fun. I might even through a mid-90s Nicolas Cage in there too!

I'm pretty sure those two already drink the blood of baptized babies. Same as Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner and Jim Parsons.

What? Paul Rudd... he's like 44. I'm sure some "Cool New Member" will bump this thread in 2043 and agree with you though.

Overacting, over-lots of things. I've pretty stopped watching anything he's in.
