Top Ten Greatest Actors

The Contenders: Page 16XW

301Jean Reno

He is so smart. His acting is both rough and gentle.

302James Spader

James Spader always nuances his performances with intricate details that are fascinating to watch. He amazes me: watch his performance in "sex, lies, and videotape" or "Secretary" or on the 8th season of "The Practice" or many other roles...all brilliant.

James Spader creates such depth, intimacy, such reality, in every role. He creates characters you've never seen portrayed, before. His face, his presence, - convey what can't be written. He amazes me.

James Spader is the most under-rated acting genius of our time. He brings the most memorable and subtle nuances to everything he is in. Absolutely amazing and versatile actor.

His facial expressions of distinctive shades of emotion are absolutely striking.

304James Marsters

He's fantastic. He was only supposed to work one season in Buffy, just as a small villain character, but he brought a certain depth to this role and acted so well that the director, Joss Whedon, decided "Oh hey, let's just keep Spike for a little longer..." And James Marsters stayed in the series until the very last episode. - RizaLovato

307Viggo Mortensen

Viggo is one of the most talented men and one of the few people remaining in Hollywood who actually act completely. I have never seen him portray a character that I couldn't buy. Amazing, and he was absolutely perfect as Aragorn I don't think anyone else could've been one tenth as good.

This man captured my senses, and my mind; very few have done that, and I've been around!

One of the most talented and interesting actors of our time

Would love to see more of him in upcoming films.

310Emile Hirsch

His performance in Into the Wild solidified that movie as my favorite of all time. He always plays so heart-breakingly well.

311Jamie Bell

This actor is incredible! It is very convincing especially in the movie Billy Elliot and in the music video Wake Me Up When September Ends by Green Day, it was fantastic. He is young and beautiful and there will be yet another movie which will bring his signature.

He is just the best actor and belongs in the top 10 his role in jumper was just amazing when you don't vote for him you really need to watch better movies (with Jamie)

He should have been cast as Peeta instead of Josh "No Charisma" Hutcherson.

This Canadian star is on the rise.

Alex is so cute, and has really nice eyes. Plays as Cato in the Hunger Games, really awesome! He's really sexy, and hot.
Alex is a good actor

319Burt Lancaster

The best no one is better than him in the Bollywood wow what great actor can make us laugh cry and dance. he is the real hero of common man

One of the instant stardom actors in bollywood. A natural dancer in all genres and a great dialogue speaker. Used to believe in 'I'll give one shot and that will be the best one'. Didn't believe in retakes. Bollywood actors uptil now cannot match his dancing abilities. Every movie of his had a life's lesson. A great comedian as well. Can make people laugh, cry, annoyed and all in his movies.
