Top Ten Greatest Actors

The Contenders: Page 22XW

421Gary Busey
422Klaus KinskiKlaus Kinski was a German actor . He is well known for his performances in various movies directed by Werner Herzog, including Aguirre, the Wrath of God (1972) and Fitzcarraldo (1982) . He was known to have a bad temper and was difficult to work with .

Unfortunately, he was in a lot of poor movies, but even then, his performances were usually superb. He was best in the collaborations with director Werner Herzog (Woyzeck, Fitzcarraldo, Aquirre and Nosferatu), as baddie, in the German Edgar Wallace-Movies of the 60's and in many Spaghetti-Westerns. Just in minor parts in films like Doctor Zhivago, Codename: Wild Geese, Bullets for the General or Buddy Buddy, his performances are always memorable. Should be so much higher.

423Vincent Cassel

Underrated French actor. Known mainly for his role in the American film, Black Swan. Black Swan was fine and dandy, but its nothing like his other films. If you wanna watch something dark, disturbing and emotionally challenging, watch a foreign Vincent Cassel film.

So agree with previous poster. Vincent Cassel. Edgy. Sexy. Can be so mean, convincingly. - babydoll

The Cassel good play to film purple rivers, police detectiv Max Kerker do to opponent killer. Opponent he and she is werry intellect. Max is master fight, good kicking and style.

424Michael Madsen

how is this not first and then again it could be second I can't see how vincent cassel is so much better honestly - SynysterGates

425Wesley Snipes

Not much of an actor, more an athlete that speaks well, he does have about three emotions in his bag of tricks but pleasant to watch anyway.

Lilly Sanders

Wesley Snipes is an incredible actor. Riveting, tough, great look on the Big (or small) Screen. Want to see more of him please. - babydoll

430James Marsden
431Billy Drago

He is well known for his roles as villains in a lot of western kind of movies. I love this guy. He should be at least in the top ten. He's so cool. I don't really know what all to say.

I love him! He can play any kind of role, whether it be the good guy or the bad guy. He's a badass! He should be at least top 5!

I love him so much! He is a pure talent, good at any role.

437Roy Dupuis

Great actor. The rare quality. Should be on the top of that list along with Orlando Bloom. -

438Steve Coogan
439Jake T. Austin
440Matthew Broderick

In Ferris Buellers Day Off, he does great at talking to the camera. He looks so easy-going and relaxed that you can't help but laugh even when he's not talking. - amyhenry

Love Ferris Bueller, but make sure to see his work in The Freshman -- terrific cast with Marlon Brando, Bruno Kirby, Penelope Ann Miller & Maximilian Schell. Great chemistry & a movie with a lot of charm.
