10 Best Actors of the 2000sBman23 The most successful and popular actors of 2000- present day.
The Top TenXW
ACTION, Comedy, Drama...
I was actually making the list of the things he can do, but it would be easier to make a list of what he can't do...
Overacting, make you hate him, and other things which most of the actors do, but not BOURNE...
Bourne Movies, Ocean Movies, The Departed, The Good Shepherd, and The Legend of Bagger Vance. - Bman23
A veteran character actor who delivers.
For sure he deserves a top place here, a great actor with great talent and great movies and he has many time to prove for future too - MatrixGuy
Not only is he batman but Christian bale has rocked the 2000s. He was brilliant in American Psycho and the mechanic. Bonus points for his role in The Fighter.
He should be on the top of the list. Actually his style is far better than the others on this list. "He Is King Of Hollywood"
The dark night is the best movie ever! - steelers1979V3 Comments
Pirates of the Caribbean, Lord of the Rings, Kingdom of Heaven, Ned Kelly, Elizabethtown, Haven, Calcium Kid, etc. - tem
He deserves to be number one! I mean Matt Damon, come on! Orlando Bloom totally dominates him! He's hot + such an amazing actor!V1 Comment
Since he came onto the scene he cranked it up, in the name of the king, safe, transporter 1&2, crank, Italian job, the expendables, the mechanic,
Johnny Depp is the best Character actor in history, in my opinion. He is not like Nicholas Cage or Will Smith (One of my favorites) as he can play any roll, no mater how odd, as if it was a completely different person playing the part.
Pirates of the Caribbean Movies, Finding Neverland, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and Sweeney Todd. - Bman23
Really Awesome. My favorites with him are Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Rango.V1 Comment
The Yards (2000), The Perfect Storm (2000), Planet of the Apes (2001), Rock Star (2001), The Truth About Charlie (2002), The Italian Job (2003), I Heart Huckabees (2004), Four Brothers (2005), Invincible (2006), The Departed (2006), Shooter (2007), We Own the Night (2007), The Happening (2008), Max Payne (2008), The Lovely Bones (2009). - Alexandr
4 brothers such an awesome movie
Seriously, how can one pick Depp over Heath Ledger? That's wrong! Ledger's acting abilities are so much more than Depp and his PR team can ever have.
This man was such an insanely good actor. It's so awful that he died! I hate that I can't see more of his acting.
Shame that he died. A great character actor.V1 Comment
Best actor of the 2000s is it not? , most of the movies of his people talk about are from before then, there is no way his 2000s roles should be above Leonardo DiCaprio
REALLY GOOD. I love his character as Woody in Toy Story
Excellent young actor who has slowed down with time.
Fight club, Seven, Snatch, Oceans trilogy, A river runs through it, Moneyball, Tree of Life, those movies are AWESOME and he is the reason that those movies are awesome and that is the reason that I voted for him.
Snatch, Babel, Troy, Ocean Movies, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. - Bman23V3 Comments
A character actor who will be remembered for many years to come.
A well rounded character actor. It will be interesting to see what Will chooses to do with his veteran years.
Very good in men in black 2 and very good also in I am lengend - cazar7
Ali, Men in Black 2, I Robot, Hitch, I Am Legend, and Hancock. - Bman23V2 Comments
Cruise stamped his persona as a star by churning out many hit movies in the new millennium, be it his death defying stunts in the mission Impossible movies or his epic performance in the last samurai, he showed versatility. And who could forget his role of bad ass vincent in collateral, one that is highly underrated but one of the best of all time...
Mission: Impossible II (2000), Vanilla Sky (2001), Minority Report (2002), The Last Samurai (2003), Collateral (2004), War of the Worlds (2005), Mission: Impossible III (2006), Lions for Lambs (2007), Tropic Thunder (2008), Valkyrie (2008). - AlexandrV1 Comment
Just watch Nighycrawler.. You'll know the kind of greatness that he is headed towards...
The Beach (2000), Don's Plum (2001), Gangs of New York (2002), Catch Me If You Can (2002), The Aviator (2004), The Departed (2006), Blood Diamond (2006), Body of Lies (2008), Revolutionary Road (2008), Shutter Island (2009). - Alexandr
Leonardo has successfully changed hats on more than one occasion in his career. Strikes me as a hard worker.
What how is he not number 1, compare all of his 2000s movies to anyone else on this list and it's clear he is better.
Denzel is one of the best. Unfortunately, Hollywood always has him in violent homicidal roles that do not play to his true talents. Shame really.
Remember the Titans, Training Day, American Gangster, and Inside Man. - Bman23
he's the man. I love his movies, especially John Q - jwileson
There are a lot of great actors on this list, but I have to vote for Russell Crowe. He can either make you cheer him on or wish he were dead - and for that, I CHEER HIM ON! I can't vote for Johnny Depp because he's already so high on this list... But Orlando Bloom? Come ON! Russell Crowe should be Number One with Depp, Smith, Bale, Damon, and the One and Only Vin Diesel right behind him!
One of the greatest actors of our time. LA Confidential, Insider, Gladiator, Beautiful Mind, Cinderella Man, Master and Commander... who else could put together such an exceptional string of films all dependent on his strong character and exceptional talent.
Gladiator, A Beautiful MInd, Cinderella Man, 3:10 to Yuma. - Bman23
Anchorman, Old School, Talladega Nights, Elf. - Bman23
Not very famous but better than vin diesel bruce wills ans tom cruise - tawhabinnasirV1 Comment
