Top Ten Greatest Actors

The Contenders: Page 4

61 Jason Statham Jason Statham Jason Statham is an English actor. He is known for his roles in the Guy Ritchie crime films Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, and Revolver.

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.

He's good at action movies like transporter

62 Sylvester Stallone Sylvester Stallone

Stallone deserves to be 1 at least. I mean Rocky the best movie I ever saw and Sylvester Stallone is the only reason why it's good, I mean Johnny depp is crap and so far Sylvester Stallone is the only one good enough to be number 1.

the way he does Rocky Balboa is so amazing and realistic!

Rocky, Rambo - these aren't so much movies as they are American Icons. Have you never seen Rambo: First Blood? Rocky? Some movies are so excellent they spawn a sequel, but 5? That takes an incredible movie. And he's still doing it! The Expendables is going to be yet another franchise that he's spearheading for a third entry.

Sylvester stallone is an awesome, badass, humble and fantastic actor. Rocky has inspired me to keep going no matter how many hits I endure. In rambo, he's proved that anything is possible, even defeating an entire squadron with not a lot of weapons. I don't even know why he is here, he should be #1 on this list. Depp will never compare to the raw, badass action star, stallone.

63 Bruce Lee Bruce Lee Bruce Lee was a Hong Kong American martial artist, action film actor, martial arts instructor, philosopher, filmmaker, and the founder of Jeet Kune Do.

He was not only a good actor he inspired a whole race to start following their dreams. He was also an amazing martial artist. - fimbulwinter

Acting since he was six years old and believable in every scene. He did not want to be known as a "Kung Fu superstar" but wanted to be remembered as an actor. OK he is the greatest film fighter and was the greatest real life fighter but all his characters are believable in terms of body language and speech delivery. Just think about it the next time you watch a Bruce Lee film and compare how much you believe the characters he plays to the characters in this list

The strongest there was, no one could beat this man. I mean just pure amazing all his stunts were real.

I think he is the god in the fighting

65 Ryan Gosling Ryan Gosling Ryan Thomas Gosling is a Canadian actor, musician, and producer. He began his career as a child star on the Disney Channel's Mickey Mouse Club and went on to appear in other family entertainment programs including Are You Afraid of the Dark?

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...

He should be in top20. I am very disappointed with this list

66 Dwayne The Rock Johnson Dwayne The Rock Johnson Dwayne Douglas Johnson, also known by his ring name The Rock, is an American and Canadian actor, producer and semi-retired professional wrestler, signed with WWE.

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.

This can't be right 67.out of all those great movies he made and he is a wwe superstar.

67 Jensen Ackles Jensen Ackles Jensen Ross Ackles is an American actor and director. He is known for his roles in television as Eric Brady in Days of Our Lives, which earned him several Daytime Emmy Award nominations, as well as Alec/X5-494 in Dark Angel and Jason Teague in Smallville.

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.

I'd put some of his performances before any movie, T.V. and stage performance out there. If awards didn't shun genre T.V., he would have a shelf full. As it is, he makes millions laugh, cry and sit in awe every week.

69 Christoph Waltz Christoph Waltz Christoph Waltz is an Austrian-German actor that has won 2 Academy Awards for Best Supporting Actor for his collaborations with director Quentin Tarantino in Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained.

"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 best

70 Akshay Kumar Akshay Kumar Rajiv Hari Om Bhatia, better known by his stage name 'Akshay Kumar', is a Canadian actor, producer and martial artist who has appeared in over a hundred Hindi films.

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.

He should be in top 10...One of the best actor of all time...If you don't believe me, simply watch his movies and his acting in every movie...

73 Robert Duvall Robert Duvall Robert Selden Duvall is an American actor and director. He has been nominated for seven Academy Awards, seven Golden Globes, and has multiple nominations and one win each of the BAFTA, Screen Actors Guild Award, and Emmy Award.

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.

Will Smith? Robert Pattinson? Bruce Lee? Eddie Murphy? Adam Sandler? Really? Duvall is everyman. Enough said.

the only thing I have ever seen him in was stalin which is one of my favourite films he was noo longer robert duvall but joseph stalin - alucard

Many years he is around, very versatile, a shame he isn't top 30

74 Ben Stiller Ben Stiller Benjamin Edward Meara "Ben" Stiller is an American actor, comedian, and filmmaker. He is well known for his roles in various comedies including There's Something About Mary, Zoolander, DodgeBall: A True Underdog Story, and Tropic Thunder.

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!

Night at the Museum is awesome and he is amazing.

He has no talent at all. He's only where he is because of his talented parents. Nepotism strikes again.
