The Contenders: Page 4XW

61Dustin Hoffman - Rain Man

This was really a performance for the ages. Deserves to be way higher.

62Clint Eastwood - Dirty HarryClinton "Clint" Eastwood Jr. is an American actor, film director, producer, musician, and political figure.
63Song Kang-ho - The Throne

The greatest thing about Song is his incredible screen presence. In this role he carries this tragic weight. Just look in his eyes. - SourNote2014

73Al Pacino - Dog Day Afternoon

it is the best bank robbery film, but it also has pacinos finest performance along with the godfather movies

74Christian Bale - American Psycho
75Joe Pesci - Goodfellas
76Brad Pitt - Fight Club

Tyler Durden is honestly the Greatest Movie Character ever portrayed. Too bad the world's still doesn't understand Fight Club's worth. Brad Pitt, you were unbelievable & thank you for being Tyler and making us believe the world has a meaning.

Dude, this performance is STELLAR! Such a cult follow. #AllHaill #TylerDurden #Soap #Salesman #FightClub

77Joe Pesci - Casino

Casino is without a doubt one of the greatest Gangster movies of all time. I think Joe Pesci alone just made this movie. Don't get me wrong Robert De Niro, Frank Vincent and Sharon Stone had amazing performances, but nobody could beat Pesci in this film!

The performance in this was not just any ordinary performance, he maintains his comedic style of acting along with his superiority as a Mafia boss of Las Vegas. He gives a performance more funnier and character better than Goodfellas

So great in this movie, he had some memorable quotes "i'm what counts out here, not your country or ya T.V. SHOWS! " There's more and it is such a good part. I reckon he made this movie possible!

Probably martin scorsese at his finest with this film. It combines Drama with Crime, Comedy and Adventure
