Top Ten Greatest Actors
The Contenders: Page 4XW
Ok, he might be very selective in what he acts (which is obviously action movies), but I believe he is the best at what he does. He shows great intensity and desire in his field of acting. And that is why in my opinion he is one of the top actors overall, and the best action star by far.
Snatch, Lock stock and two smocking barrels, and the hilarious performance as the monk in Mean machine. That's why he is best
He isn't a very good actor, he doesn't experiment, and other than Revolver he sticks to safe films. But I think he is amazing, he doesn't try to be anything he's not and has a very good sense of humour.
This man I think he's the best, and I like his moviesV25 Comments
"What? I could not resist! "- Christopher Waltz, Django Unchained
Inglorious bastards was great and his role in it was almost as great as Hannibal lecter portrayal by Hopkins, and that saying a lot
He should be in the top 10! He's not there because he isn't very famous, but he deserves to be famous
Django was actually the bestV6 Comments
he's such a great actor we all should vote 4 him..
ocean's 11 12 13 - yasso
What?!? He should be 1! If you don't believe me then watch oceans eleven or up in the air.
He belongs in the top 10 if not top 5. By far one of the best actors I've ever seen. So brilliant and cunning
One of the greatest actor of all time. Should be in Top 20, I reckon!V4 Comments
Two words. Captain America. This guy is an extremely talented actor and can really make you believe his role Just like he did to me in Captain America. Seriously vote for this guy he is the best actor ever!
No he played two superheroes who does that you can't do that he doesn't deserve the top 100. Don't get me wrong he is a ok actor for Captain America, but he should stay Cap for the rest of his life there is no better for cap than him but he is not that good of a actor
Been watching his movies since I was "young", absolutely love the guy! Sweet, charming, and a great actor!
We can all say he is good but he is not even close to the best actor EVER!V8 Comments
Thought I would round off my list with, well not really an up and comer, but one that is definitely talented. Ryan Gosling is another who simply can not turn in a poor performance. Think back, can you remember one? In 2006 his performance in Half Nelson was unbelievable. I think he deserved the Best Picture, even with how good Hoffman was as Capote. There's another actor I left off... Gosling will have a Best Actor very soon, it will happen. Excellent actor, Gary Oldman Jr.
#1- Dan Dunne, Half Nelson #2- Driver, Drive - zacenroe86
Ryan is one of the best actors of today I have ever seen, he is very talented and very virsitile... anyone who can go from playing a nazi, to a mentally disturbed teen, to a hopeless romantic from the 40s, and make me believe it, has my vote! - inpeaces
You give this guy the right role he will win an Oscar.. I liked him in "Fracture"... He played along side Anthony Hopkins... A great performance...
His performance in Lars & the Real Girl was exceptional.V1 Comment
I always adore Bruce and Denzel, as Denzel is up high there, and Bruce here?
he may not won an Oscar or what, but he is a GREAT actor, period!
he is a versatile actor, see him in Pulp fiction, The sixth sense, Die hard or The whole nine yards? all exceptional!
he maynot be top 10, but he come easily as top 20! Cmon he is great! I LOVE die hard! - mesh13
He adds humor, suspense, and good looks to any movie that he is in.
This man has got to be the new Chuck Norris. After seeing Die Hard 4 that is... - TKDCats312
Should be a lot higher then this...top 5V5 Comments
IIn Dodgeball he makes the perfect enemy. With the snobbiness and self-centeredness, he is fabulous! - amyhenry
Ben Stiller is my favorite actor by far. I loved Tower Heist and Little Fockers. Ben Stiller is boss and should be in the top ten. He is hilarious and is a fan favorite. Come on Ben!
How could he not be on the list I mean seriously
Night at the Museum is awesome and he is amazing.V6 Comments
He's a great actor, a great man and he was a great wrestler! I love him and I love his movies. I can't wait to see G.I. jOE: Retaliation next June 29th
The greatest of all time. If you some smell what the is cooking... His body is awesome... The face of wwe...
It's somehow fitting that the Rock and Arnold are together on this list, except it should be a lot lower.
72? seventy two?V31 Comments
Powerful, Inspirational, Khiladi, the New King. These are just some of the many words used to describe Akshay Kumar. He is unarguably the most influential persons in the Indian Film Industry and why not; they don't just call him the man with the Midas touch for nothing; everything he touches seems to turn to gold, huge box office returns and one of the only Indian stars to ensure a record breaking opening at the box office with five back-to-back hits and the whopping zeroes added to his cost per film. Akshay Kumar is the new indisputable King of Bollywood.
Love him or Hate him he's still gonna Rock
If not an actor, Akki would probably end up as, no surprise here, a martial arts teacher!
Akshay Kumar is the most versatile indian actor. He can act superbly on every genres. He is king of action, comedy, acting etc etc. He can act any role.

Fantastic in everything! He is an extremely talented actor! He can make characters in completely fictional stories seem realistic and believable, he's that good of an actor! Dark Angel was a SPECTACULAR show and Jensen made it even better. He was so great in his first appearance on the series that they brought him back as a regular. That shows how good he is!!
Jensen Ackles is a Great, Talented, Outstanding and Brilliant actor. From Days Of Our Lives to Supernatural, in every T.V. show and in every Movie, he's showed and still showing the excellence of his acting. His delivery of dialogues and his expression are the Outstanding aspects of his acting. Jensen Ackles is the god of his Work, No One can do it Better than He Does, He Rules with His Perfection.
jensen is really talented he can really act he's just sooooooo good at acting and i see that it's a huge loss for movies viewers not to see him as a movie star on the big screen beacause he just deserves more than a tv show it's a hit but he can do more he can give more and i hope that happense soon.he's a real good actor.

Are we forgetting his amazing performance in The Godfather, Apocalypse Now and the role that won him his first and what would appear to be his only academy award Tender Mercies? He is so diverse with his acting.

Finally! Easily one of the best. His being overlooked is the worst flaw on this list! - Billyv
Wow is all that needs to be saidV12 Comments
Greatest actor off all time. He could play anything from drama, comedy, thriller, romance, action to family oriented films. He even played the bad guy in the second The Thin Man film.

Extremely skilled and versatile actor, great in any type of role... Drama, comedy, mystery, western, military...very genuine and believable in any role... Had a passion for his craft... A gentleman of Genuine Christian character on and off screen. He's on my list of most admired Americans. Joe, North Carolina

SALMAN IS THE BIGGEST MASS FAN FOLLOWING HERO IN iNDIA AND ASLO IN ASIA. HIS CONNECT TO THE PEOPLE IS AMAZING. HE IS THE ONLY HERO WHO SPEND 50% OF HIS MONEY TO PEOPLE THROUGH IS CHARTY "BEING HUMAN". AND THIS IS BIGGEST CHARTY IN INDIA RUN BY AN INDIVIDUAL.
HE IS THE BOX-OFFICE BLOCK BUSTER HERO, EVER IN INDIA, HE IS KNOWN FOR HIS HANDSOME LOOKS, EXCELLENT PHYSIC AND WITH AWESOME MANNERISM. CURRENTLY HE IS THE BIGGEST HERO IN ASIA, WHO TAKES REMUNERATION OVER 50 CRORES FOR A FILM.
OUT OF TOP 6 HIGH COLLECTED MOVIES 3 ARE OF HIS OWN.
I THINK THE PERSON WHO RATED THIS IS A BIG FOOL AND AND NOT EVEN KNOW ABOUT SALMAN
IN INDIA, SALMAN WAS CALLED SALLU BHAI, IT MEANS BROTHER TO ALL THIS FANS.
HE IS SIMPLY SUPER MAN OF INDIA.
Salman khan is most power full Indian actor that is why I like him besides Salman have impressive personality I mean that he is distinct actor in Bollywood very often I have seen to support helpless person anyway such as event happened meany time with salman, those got success way afterword those betrayed him best example Katrina in spite that he is doing selfless service so due this occurrence over there he become incarnation of lord of Bollywood. Meany people have let him down but did not influence on his. He is number 1 hero also Indian founder of human being nowadays
Great human being and superstar of Bollywood, Salman Khan!

WHAT! He was such a good actor in the How I Met Your Mother series he should at least be in the top ten
Totally number 1 by far, you might disagree but I believe that he's the best ever, still don't believe me, watch how I met your mother he's super funny!
When I'm sad, I stop being sad and be awesome instead... true story. - HeavyDonkeyKong
All hail Harris. How I Met Your Mother should've earned him a spot in the top 3!V8 Comments
Obviously most voting here are young. This man should be at least in the top 10 if not #1. And, he's listed twice! He was the GREATEST actor, not to mention very hot!
Lawrence Olivier is the single greatest actor of all time. He's a classically tranined Shakespearean actor and he always delivers classical performances. Known for some of the greatest movies like Hamlet, Henry V, Khartoumn, In the shoes of the fisherman, That Hamilton woman, Wuthering Heights, Spartacus, Rebecca, The boys from Brazil, Richard lll, and Pride and Prejudice just to name a few!V1 Comment
HE great as always Every character played was awesome. His voice alone could win an Oscar.I want to see you in the historical role...
Barun Sobti nicest guy in the world and represents an excellent manner, and I like his performance in the series ipkknd and also starred in several countries and continents such as Turkey, Russia, Georgia, Egypt, Dubai, Algeria, and many countries
You are the best barun sobti keep rocking
Barun, Russia love youV39 Comments
A true star and great actor. His characters were always true to life, they had flaws and realism, his emotions came across real, and he demanded your attention when he was on screen in spite of his every man appearance (or perhaps because of it). He could be lovable, cantankerous, tough, or anything else the part called for and it was never obvious he was acting like many lesser actors of his day. If a movie has Spencer Tracy in its cast it is worth a look and often more than one.
2 Academy Awards 9 total nominations for best actor. Leave him in obscurity to show how intelligent you are.
Truly one of the Giants. A crime he is this low. Apparently the younger generation is in charge here
Stellar performance in "Bad day at Black Rock. In the top 50 for sure!V4 Comments
One of the greatest actors ever. Can play men of intelligence or simply cunning ones, good men or evil ones.V3 Comments
Come on jack black must be number 1 he makes the funnies movies ever like
