They are the pairs who get together, and you can’t help but watch. They are the individuals when coupled, offer most impressive chemistry. We’re talkin’ the best acting duos of all-time. And we’re talkin’ one of the hardest lists to ever compile. This is a broad brush stroke including film duos, and TV duos, because sometimes you feel like gold, and sometimes silver; sometimes you like buddies, and sometimes romantic buddies. Based on an intricate algorithm far too complex to explain, here are the 10 best acting duos of all time.
10. Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny
Mulder and Scully. They’re back at it. Here’s some immediate proof in the acting duo pudding. X-Files is enjoying a rebirth because of two things: David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson. And this will put the acting duo to the test. Is their chemistry something that will bridge a generational gap, and lure new audience members to a past brand of entertainment, or will it only draw a percentage of former fans who could become bored after the novelty of Mulder and Scully being back together wears off? There’s no denying the power of shared screen presence these two brought to the tube and the sliver screen from 1993-2002. They were a different brand of smart and sexy, and it was a welcome change to the TV landscape during the Generation X/grunge era. And of course, they’re still smart and sexy.
