Oscar odds: Best Actor

The spawn of "21 Jump Street," "Growing Pains" and "In Living Color" face off against an icon and a guy some people recognize only from those NFL commercials. And most people thought the icon wouldn't be on this list ...

Don Cheadle, "Hotel Rwanda": He's great and all, but I kind of want him to lose so he'll revert to Buck from "Boogie Nights" and yell, "You're not being fair! I'm an ACTOR!" ODDS: 10-to-1.
Johnny Depp, "Finding Neverland": Take it back to France, pretty boy, and don't come back until you're channeling Keith Richards again. ODDS: 12-to-1.
Leonardo DiCaprio, "The Aviator": Just in case you thought he couldn't play a stranger person than Gilbert Grape. (Yeah, I know he actually played Gilbert's brother. Thanks for ruining the joke.) ODDS: 8-to-1.
Clint Eastwood, "Million Dollar Baby": You'd think Paul Giamatti would be pissed at losing this spot, but he secretly loved "Every Which Way But Loose." ODDS: 15-to-1.
Jamie Foxx, "Ray": Finally, retribution for being passed over for "Booty Call." ODDS: EVEN.
