While his non-pirate movies might not always be big hits, Johnny Depp is certainly a big hit with the public, as evidenced by the fact that he captured the title of “America’s favorite actor” for the second year in a row.

According to Harris Interactive’s annual poll of favorite movie stars, Clint Eastwood and Denzel Washington were next on the list in a tie for second — despite neither of them appearing in a movie in 2011 — while the public forgave Tom Hanks for ‘Larry Crowne’ and voted him fourth. But perhaps most impressive was the dead-since-1979 John Wayne snagging the fifth spot.

George Clooney, Sandra Bullock, Harrison Ford, Will Smith and Adam Sandler rounded out the top ten, in that order.

What do you think? Is Johnny Depp your favorite movie star? Take our poll below and choose your favorite from the actors on the list. (Sorry, Gary Busey fans. He didn’t make the cut.)
