Best what about obi wanV3 Comments
David is great. He is the best man ever - he's REAL. I think girls can only dream about him, and boys - dream about becoming his friend. And what a great actor! Love him at Playing God, Evolution, Trust the man, the Secret, Joneses! House of D is BRILLIANT. The X Files... Should I say more? ) Can't wait for the third movie! Californication - my second love after the X files.
DAVID - THE BEST!
The only actor on this list that I like. He make me feel all kind of emotions. He is really gifted.
One of the best actor in the world. He was great with Minnie Driver in Return to Me and with Julianne Moore in Evolution and Trust the Man. I loved him in House of D and The T.V. set. He was great working with Halle Berry in Things we Lost in the Fire.
David Duchovny is brilliant in Californication. And he is one of the nicest people in the world too.
Very fluid, does not have a stereotype, great actor. Many great actors could learn something from him.V21 Comments
OK, let me explain this one: You have to be a very talented actor to play Joey, Joey is a dim-witted womanising idiot in Friends and Joey. Matt LeBlanc is the complete opposite, he is an intelligent, happily married man, who is quite quiet and now hosts Top Gear.V4 Comments
Jared deserves so much... Not only is he one of the most awesome actors I've seen in a long time, but he has not let his growing popularity go straight to his head. He is down to earth, he truly cares about people, and his fans. He gives way over 100% of himself to be sure he is giving the best he can to deliver what he know we, as fans of his, are going to love, without taking a thing for granted. His performances have been above and beyond outstanding. You feel every bit of emotion he shows and I've not seen that from many actors in ages. He is truly meant to have every bit of recognition that can possibly be sent his way. He is a truly inspiring person for so many. We, the fans have seen and heard him and what he does and how hard he works shows that he as truly seen and heard us. We have him secured as truly in our hearts as we absolutely know and trust he has us in his. For all these reasons and more, Jared Tristan Padalecki is the most deserving actor today that I will say ...more
Excuse me, but this man deserves to be way up at the top! He is an amazing actor. He doesn't even have to utter a word, as he has such much expression in his face alone. If any actor deserves an Emmy, it's Jared Tristan Padalecki! Let's get up to #1. - kristinludwig
A lot of the actors higher on this list are from a by gone era. And they belonged in the Top Ten Actors of their time. Yet we must look to the era we are in. Though Jared has shown a style hardening back to those times. , poised and confident. Conducts himself honorable in all endeavors. Someone the viewers look up to. Talents unquestionable. Saddens me, his standing on this list is not higher.
He deserves this he is absolutely the best actor everV105 Comments
WHAT? WHAT? HOW IS HE NOT #1?
Michael J Fox is so talented. He has had such a varying list of characters: young republican, teenage rocker, irritating actor, concierge, hotshot doctor, deputy mayor, he's even played a character who can see ghosts. His abilities are so varied and he's great. He's also so inspiring. Can you imagine having Parkinson's and having to cover it up for as long as he did? You have to be a great actor to do that. The ONLY actor on this list who is actually a quality actor is David Duchovny, and maybe Tom Hanks. Back to the Future is the best trilogy of all time in my opinion, and Family Ties one of the best sitcoms ever made.
By the way, for everyone who didn't know, Cars is an EXACT copy of Doc Hollywood. So screw you Disney.
Why the heck is he not number 1? He is clearly the best actor. I mean, come on guys get some taste! Have you not seen Family Ties or Back to the Future?
Holy crap, I voted for him, and he shot straight to 14...what are the odds?
#107!? He is a legendary actor abd should be #1V17 Comments
Jake gyllenhaal is the most versatile, brilliant actor I have ever seen, he can play literally any character to perfection. Be it creepy, funny, intense the list goes on. And then, as I scroll and scroll, desperately trying to find this amazing actor, I come across Ashton kutcher, above him, who can only play one role, and has never made a good movie in his life. Just unbelievable. Gyllenhaal is a legendary actor, and destined to be one of the greats
He is really awesome. I think he is one of the best actors ever: Donnie Darko, Jarhead, the good girl, the day after tomorrow (sorry, haven't seen the whole Brokeback Mountain movie) - he convinces! - Cranberry20
The best young actor around today. His acting skills are incredible for his young age.
What HOW IS THE 108? He should at least be at top 15!V12 Comments
He. Deserves a lifetime award... This actor played so many outstanding roles.. He is a natural...
Wow don't anybody else feel this is just an insult to him he's great
This guy is too low down on this list. Should've been much higher. - gaali121
He's actually pretty amazing.V3 Comments
Come on jack black must be number 1 he makes the funnies movies ever like
Kung fu panda 2
Kung fu panda 1
The school of rock. Etc.
Awesome! Anyone knows Jack dominates the movie field obviously.
Jack black in nacho libre and school of rock he was SO FUNNY HE SHOULD BE TOP 5
He's horrible.V13 Comments
I saw one of my favorite movies with him in it, he was great at it, the movie was Hollow Man, I thought that movie was awesome.
Ultimately one of the most talented actors around
Terrible actor. What idiot put him on this list. You gotta be kidding.V1 Comment
What's wrong with you people?
One of the BEST actors I have ever seen on any movie (may it be the lotr trilogy- in which he was brilliant, the xmen series in which he totally sold the character or the the vinci code)...
A fantastic actor and deserves to be much much higher than he is. His take on gandalf was one of the best performances I have ever seen and he was brilliant as magneto too
This guys been around forever! How is he not in the top ten?! Gandalf? Magneto? He can sell any character!
This guy should get an oscar. He's the best as Gandalf and Magneto! - BoltMarksmanV8 Comments
Um this list is wrong why is he at the bottom he is literally amazing. The youth of America is shameful talk to me when you've watched real quality movies with real quality actors like him. Hitchcock chose this man for most of his films...which by the way were amazing...so obviously there was something he saw in Jimmy here. By the way Academy Awards I will never forgive you for these injustices to cinema. I am a LEGITIMATE filmwatcher (unlike many teenagers these days) Also I am 13...see? Teens aren't completely lost. - Wrinkly rat.
Great actor great actor. If he doesn't get into the top 20 something is wrong one of the all time favorite actor
James Stewart was one of the greatest actors of our time. I am shocked he isn't in the top five. A genuinely good guy and amazing actor.
Rear Window... best movie ever. It's a Wonderful Life... second best movie ever. Best actor ever. - jack2244V5 Comments
The most charming man to walk on the earth. Thanks Cary for all the great characters you left us to watch and love.
What is wrong with you people? This is the greatest comedic actor to ever live, just go watch Bringin' Up Baby, the Ugly Truth, His girl Friday, Philadelphia Story-Without him that movie would have flopped. He was the model, the actor other actor tried to emulate to master comedic timing.
Debonair, handsome, polished. Did comedy and drama equally well. North by Northwest, Charade, An Affair to Remember, The Philadelphia Story, Bringing Up Baby, Arsenic and Old Lace...
Um, why is he not on the top ten?!V6 Comments
I'm crying in laughter while reading this. Ian Somerhalder? The only time I EVER heard of this guy was in the first like 5 episodes of LOST! (A show that no one knows about that ended almost 5 years ago)
VOTE PEOPLE! IAN IS SO GOOD IN TVD! He should be at the least, before top 40! HE IS SO AMAZING! And hot :D
Ian should be in the top 10. He does exceptionally great work acting in the Vampire Diaries!
He's done an amazing job in The Vampire Diaries. He's one of the underrated actors.V5 Comments
The only actor in the world that I look up to... I LOVE him to death, I could watch his movies a million times and never get bored.
The original, the one and only REBEL the world has known and will ever know
The handsomest, most talented actor who ever walked the earth. I totally adore him!
He is a true, he may have made only three movies, half a century ago. But, he is still remembered to this day. and a role model to many actors like al pacino and james franco.
He died way too soon in a car accident. He was awesome in rebel without a cause - AjklothV3 Comments
Dhanush is the first young actor who won the national award and he is the amazing and super actor in the world
I like dhanush flim and dhanush now the kolaveri song is super hit
Some different fell to hear about dhanush like anna
Worst actors I have ever seenV4 Comments
I absolutely LOVE Chris Pine! J.J. Abrams is a GENIUS for casting him for the role of Jim Kirk! Not to mention, he's quite a catch ;).
Extraordinary. He was not given credit for his acting ability even when he was in the Top Ten box office draws for 22 straight years. Looking over this list I see the demographics are severely weighted toward the younger generation. I would invite you to watch Mr. Wayne in Island in the Sky, The Searchers, The Shootist, or The Cowboys and watch some of the true subtleties of acting genius. Also, look for titles with the following actors; Gary Cooper, James Stewart, Charles Laughton, Cary Grant, Clark Gable, Paul Newman, Gregory Peck, Burt Lancaster, and especially, Walter Pidgeon (Mrs Miniver, How Green was My Valley, Manhunt). Please enjoy.
If I was ever stranded on an island I would want to be with him, I think
He was a lot in real life as he was in the movies, tall, handsome, kind &
200% male there will never be another John Wayne, EVER!
He is the greatest and my favorite. He made over 200 movies. - moose4life19
He is an extraordinary actor, and I know it is because he is a western actor that he doesn't score better.V19 Comments
Another one who lurks in the shadows. When considering "the best actor ever, " most lists will have the typical, pacino, de niro, nicholson, penn; but Rush is one of the greats. I remember the first movie I eve saw with him, Shine. I was young and did not quite understand the film but I remember thinking "wow, this guy. " That attitude has not changed. Excellent actor. #1- David, Shine #2- Lionel, The King's Speech - zacenroe86
How can Geoffrey Rush not be in this list? He is one of the best actors I have ever known! He did a great role in the movie "The King's Speech. I like his face, the way he looks at people and also maybe his voice.
Was so good in Pirates of the Caribbean that they had to turn him into a hero! The best scenes in Pirates, to me, were the ones between Depp and Rush.
This guy is so great and he does NOT get enough credit!V1 Comment
