The Contenders: Page 6

101 Dilip Kumar

greatest actor of all time
par with best in the world
if he was in hollywood then he would be regarded as the best in the world
many indian great actors like amitabh, rajendra kumar manoj kumar, srk aamir rajnikanth and countless actors are indebted to him for his inspirational acting

It's easy to make laugh but it is difficult to make people cry... He is 1 of the phenomenal actors India have ever produced... Present actors are just following the guidelines formulated by him.

Known as the tragedy King in Bollywood. He is the most respected actor. Some of his performances leaves you with everlasting feelings

Is this site meme? Ask the amtiabh or the sahrukh whom you added in top 10, about best actor ever? Then listen then carefully or after wearing berometer. And then change this.

102 Nicolas Cage Nicolas Cage Nicolas Kim Coppola, known professionally as Nicolas Cage, is an American actor and producer. He is well known for his roles in Raising Arizona, Moonstruck, Vampire's Kiss, Wild at Heart, Honeymoon in Vegas, Red Rock West, Leaving Las Vegas, The Rock, Con Air, Face/Off, City of Angels, 8MM, Bringing ...read more.

Should be in number 1 position in my opinion. Incredibly talented and versatile actor. He puts his heart and soul into every character he portrays. I admire this guy so much, not to mention he is absolutely gorgeous. Where would we be without movies such as Raising Arizona, Leaving Las Vegas, Lord of War, The Rock, Face off, Adaptation, Matchstick men, just too many to list! I hope he continues making movies for a long time yet.

One the most versatile actors of all time johnny depp is versatile but no where near as much as nicolas cage who is unafraid of any role although some times in the wrong movie he makes the film that much more watchable

A classic actor. The expressions on his face truly reveal his great acting skills. He has made phenomenal contributions in Movies like Knowing, Con Air, National Treasure, etc. Nicolas just rocks!

He's very funny as an actor. He always makes me laugh.

The office he is hilarious, the big short he was incredible. Deserves to be higher. (Nicolas cage is higher then steve? )

Really, Ben Stiller above Steve Carell? REALLY?!?!?!?

104 Ewan McGregor Ewan McGregor Ewan Gordon McGregor is a Scottish actor. His first professional role was in 1993, when he won a leading role in the Channel 4 series Lipstick on Your Collar.

Obi-wan kenobi - star wars
Lincoln 6-echo - the island
Ghostwriter - the ghostwriter

How is he not on this list? Brilliant actor! Extremely talented! Believable in every role he has played!

Firstly, its EWAN mcgregor not ewen

Secondly he deserves to be much higher, he is an amazing actor

Robots, Miss Potter and other random movies like that. Oh yeah, and STARWARS! Duh, with or without a beard, his best movie by far is Starwars.

106 Matt LeBlanc Matt LeBlanc

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.

107 Jared Padalecki Jared Padalecki Jared Tristan Padalecki is an American actor. He grew up in Texas and rose to fame in the early 2000s after appearing on the television series Gilmore Girls as well as such films as New York Minute and House of Wax.

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 ever

108 David Duchovny David Duchovny

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.

I think he should be at the top. He is great Yaar.
I watch everything he is on. I watch californication regular I go to see his most of his movies. He He can rock anything he does. But He copies AMITABH BACHAN (I LOVE David). Amitabh is a Bollywood real Hero. And he is also on this list at 25th number. He imitates amitabh. Sorry but that the truth. Hurts me too. Amitabh has been in the industry sinceas long as I can remember and davDavid is from ' 90 S. Amitabhs movies were also released in Us and other countries. So there is no doubt that he copies amitabh. But still I love. David.

109 Michael J. Fox Michael J. Fox Michael Andrew Fox, known as Michael J. Fox, is a Canadian-American actor, author, producer, and activist.

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 #1

110 Jake Gyllenhaal Jake Gyllenhaal

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!

He's actually pretty amazing.

113 Shia LaBeouf Shia LaBeouf Shia Saide LaBeouf is an American actor, performance artist, and director who became known among younger audiences as Louis Stevens in the Disney Channel series Even Stevens.

At First He Seemed To Have Great Potential He Was Kind, Caring, And Great But Do To Revenge Of The Fallen He Is Now A Selfish Jerk, Mean, Beats People Up, Drinks a lot, Has A Paper Bag On His Head, Very Rude. I Hate Him.

He was humorous in Even Stevens, which made him a star. Other than Transformers, Shia had great performances in Holes, Greatest Game Ever Played, Surf's Up, Fury, and Disturbia.

He is the best actor. All his movies get to be one of the best in theaters and also the most sold tickets So this is for sure the right answer. Which is the best actor? Shia LaBeouf is the best actor of the entire world.

He is in of my favorite movie tranformers 1.2 and 3

Sorry man but Michael Bay is one of the worst directors ever... The transformer movies just SUCK. And Shia LaBeouf is a terrible actor, he ruins everything. (Transformers, Indiana Jones, etc).

Terrible actor. What idiot put him on this list. You gotta be kidding.

115 Jared Leto Jared Leto

I love film with him. He have something interesting inside, and his eyes say something. I don't know why I love him like a actor. I know that he is very handsome but is not the reason...

This guy is a genie in a bottle. 39 yrs and look at him. If you unscrew the bottle you get acting, singing, the looks and those blue blue eyes. In Alexander I wanted to cry with him. He can do everything on que.

He is the definition of "method actor". He slept on the streets of New York City and lost 27 pounds to prepare for his part in Requiem for a Dream. He gained 62 pounds for Chapter 27. He puts EVERYTHING into his characters; and as his audience, we can't help but believe the person he is portraying. Actually, because of Harry Goldfard in Requiem, Jared Leto kept both my boyfriend and me from becoming heroin addicts in real life!

The PERFECT MAN, he is THE BEST ACTOR, I think he's charming, cheerful... he's very very handsome boy and I LOVE him. - Stevenuniversefangirl

116 Ian Somerhalder Ian Somerhalder Ian Joseph Somerhalder is an American actor, model and director. He is known for playing Boone Carlyle in the TV drama Lost and Damon Salvatore in The CW's supernatural drama The Vampire Diaries.

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.

117 James Dean James Dean James Byron Dean was an American actor. He is a cultural icon of teenage disillusionment and social estrangement, as expressed in the title of his most celebrated film, Rebel Without a Cause, in which he starred as troubled teenager Jim Stark.

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.

The man who made acting more than just pretending

119 Bradley Cooper Bradley Cooper Bradley Charles Cooper is an American actor and producer. He has been nominated for four Academy Awards, three for acting and one for producing, and one Tony Award.

Did anyone see Joy? His acting just keeps getting better and better. Plus he is so easy on the eyes. (Hot) Bradley Cooper was the only actor worth watching in that movie! Why does he keep getting paired with Jennifer Lawrence? She is nowhere near his league in terms of talent or looks! I agree that he should be in the top 20. Maybe even the top ten.

Underrated on this list Nicholas cage shouldn't be on here this guy is better

Bradley Cooper in so many Oscar no need movies, you place him 148...get outta here

This dude is the bomb

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 ;).
