The Lombard Cup details..Team Classic vs Team Modern

As I wrote in an earlier post I am setting up a new tourney for November. This time focusing on the men. But  this will not be the regular kind of tourney. I am combining my love of golf's ryder cup play with actors. It will match up the top 20 classic era actors against the top 20 modern era actors. I have compiled the lists based on amount of awards won, box office strength, recognition and overall popularity. There will be five matches per week so this event will run all month long. Whoever wins their match gets a full point. A tie nets half a point for each competitor. And by the end of the month, I will tally up the total points to see which era gained the most. Which will give that era the Lombard Cup for this year. I hope to do this on a yearly basis. Maybe next year will be the women, then after that a specific type of actor, and so on. Or maybe a batch of other actors who didn't make the cut this year. The possibilities are endless. Here are the actors who will be competing. The match selection process will be done on Friday as I will put the names in a hat so to speak and pull a classic era actor then a modern actor and that's who will be matched up against each other. And no one is ranked, so that factor will be irrelevant this time. The randomness of this will make for a compelling tourney I think. And I know most people would figure that the classic era group would just dominate over the modern era group but I have to say that the modern era is pretty loaded. Should be fun to watch unfold. Just always thought this would be a cool thing to do, to see how the modern era stacks up against the classic era! And Carole Lombard, who I named the cup after will be our mistress of ceremony. The first five matches will begin Sunday November 4th.

I just realized you don't have Sean Connery on either list! And you the Bond fanatic that you are!
