Okay folks, this was hard to narrow down. You are all a bunch of sick weirdoes and I love it. As you may have seen, it was also hard to come up with the right awful chemistry factorial that ensures that the group overall has poor chemistry, but also that any possible combination of actors in two person scenes also is doomed to have zero chemistry. So before I announce the finalists, I'd like to offer up some combinations of actors that were out there that have a glimmer of plausibility to them, which therefore took the entry out of the finals:
Cedric the Entertainer & The Rock
Darlene Cates and Crispin Glover
al pacino and christopher walken
Kathy Bates & Al Pacino
Wil Wheaton and Kathy Griffin
Robin Williams and Dane Cook
R Lee Ermey and Robert DeNiro
OJ Simpson and Arnold Schwarzenegger
Gary Oldman and Clint Howard
Reginald VelJohnson and Emmanuel Lewis
the above entry also included Prince--I hereby announce a movie chemistry doctrine--Prince is the universal solvent. He has enough enigmatic charm to spare that he could be combined with anyone. This doesn't mitigate the fact that he's a lousy actor.
Bronson Pinchot and Sinbad and John Stamos (I wouldn't see this movie, but I could see these three in some kind of 80's nostalgia picture)
This entire entry was so perverse and filled with enough non-actors that I had to rule it out. But I like Seth's moxie.
Ant (LCS comedian)
These are of course subjective calls, but so's the contest. The objective part comes in this portion, namely the voting on these 7 finalists. As you will soon see, I many of these entries were relatively subtle, with actors that seem like they might go together (a la Wild Hogs) but the more you think about them, the more wrong the combinations seem. Vote early and often through the end of the Oscars this Sunday. The winner will be announced Monday morning. Also, please note that only entries 2, 5, and 7 participated in the addendum. If none of these entries wins, the highest vote tally among these three will win a movie concession from me.
Here they are:

Kirk Cameron (post-Left Behind)

Gilbert Gottfried (February 28, 1955)
Forest Whitaker (July 15, 1961)
Billy Bob Thornton (August 4, 1955)
George Lopez (April 23, 1961)
Shannon's fifth entry was Cate Blanchett, whom I think is a least plausible with both Forest Whitaker and Billy Bob Thorton, but the fifth entry doesn't disqualify her initial quartet.

my "5th" man is a woman: Eva Mendez...so long as she's 100% in the same mouth-breather mode she worked so well in 2 Fast 2 Furious.
