142Geoffrey Rush

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!

144Rajesh Khanna

Rajesh khanna definitely greatest actor all time not in India but all over the world

No one can act the way he actead in Amar Prem, Anand, Bawarchi, Kati Patang etc. Even BigB was nothing in front of him. The most skilled, versatile actor. The first and the original superstar of Indian Cinema. No actor has recieved as many no. of awards as he had.

145Daniel CraigDaniel Wroughton Craig is an English actor. Craig trained at the National Youth Theatre and graduated from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 1991, before beginning his career on stage.

He's a perfect actor for james bond and always impress.

He is by far the best James Bond there has ever been and he can play as any role he just makes the perfect actor

He wouldn't have had an opportunity to play James Bond if Sean Connery hadn't sold that character on film - Billyv

Very good actor- But I would like to see him in any other roles too. My vote for him.

He should be 5th

146Bradley CooperBradley 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

147Sean ConnerySir Thomas Sean Connery is a retired Scottish actor and producer who has won an Academy Award, two BAFTA Awards and three Golden Globes.

Sean should definitely be higher on the list! Not only the Best Bond, he also is a powerful performer! The Untouchables, The Rock, Medicine Man, Finding Forrester just to name a few!

Understated, underrated. So natural that people don't realize he's acting. Few others could have done his roles as well - Billyv

What! 90? The untouchables, the hunt for the red October and the original bond gets him 90? Top 20 at least

Simply the best!

148John Simm

No One every really realises the brilliance of John Simm I mean absolutey fantastic T.V. actor. He was great in 24 hour party people. His Role in Doctor Who shows he can just about act as anything and on Life On Mars He was absouloutley outstanding. He is better at acting on T.V. rather than film but he should be appreciated more than he is #Vote Saxon - MichaelMadden2001

149Jamie FoxxEric Marlon Bishop, known professionally by his stage name Jamie Foxx, is an American actor, singer, songwriter and comedian.

151Shia LaBeoufShia 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).

He is the Megastar of Telugu film industry.
He along with Rajinikanth and Kamal Hassan have the largest fan base in South India.

He is the one of all time hero of andhra predesh.
He only having biggest fans in tollywood.
But he wasted he's life with politics

The art of being yourself at your best is the art of unfolding your personality into the man you want to be. Be gentle with yourself, learn to love yourself, to forgive yourself, for only as we have the right attitude toward ourselves can we have the right attitude toward others... All this I can see in CHIRANJEEVI sir... A Legend forever...

153Robert RedfordCharles Robert Redford Jr., known professionally as Robert Redford, is an American actor, director, producer, businessman, environmentalist, and philanthropist.

Are you kidding me? Robert Redford should at least be in the top ten. He has remained a Hollywood icon for decades and continues to shine as a director. Having been in a wide variety of movies and playing a wide variety of characters he has shown versatility as well as charisma. He was and remains as the best Hollywood has to offer. If you don't believe me, spend time with just one of his movies. You'll be hooked.

Maybe just my age but growing up dreaming of Mr Redford and to this day, he remains the sexiest actor in my opinion.

154Jack Lemmon

One of the very, very few actors who are equally believable and skilled at being funny or being serious.

All his movies are entertaining. He does comedy and drama better than any actor has.

What is anybody thinking he's too material

156James McAvoyJames McAvoy is a Scottish actor. He made his acting d├ębut as a teen in 1995's The Near Room and continued to make mostly television appearances until 2003, when his feature film career began and he continued to work in both areas from then on.

I was debating who to vote for (Robert Downy Jr, Alan Rickman, Johnny Depp or Gary Oldman) when I thought to myself what was the last movie you watched and actually thought Yeah that's believable acting. And then it hit me Cillian Murphy in The Wind That Shakes The Barley. If you haven't seen it, watch it.
So here I was looking for Cillian Murphy when I spotted my favourite actors name: James McAvoy. To be honest I had thought of him but then thought no, is he really the best actor ever? Then I saw the name and though ok yeah he's pretty amazing. Let's think, Penelope, Shameless and Inside I'm Dancing to name but a few. These roles couldn't be more diverse. To answer my own question, yes he really is the best actor ever (well in my opinion ever anyway).
If you haven't seen him act, do it, like now, seriously. :P Really though he's amazing.

You've seen him at Atonement, The Last King of Scotland, Becoming Jane, Wanted, X-men First Class... Need I say more! Please vote for James!

I love him very much! And I think that he's the most talented actor!

Definitely should have more votes.

He is a CULT FIGURE with films like Velvet Goldmine and the present NBC T.V. series Dracula. He is Henry Tudor in The Tudors and Valentine Morgernstern in the acclaimed Mortal Instruments and City of Bones. All his films should be studied in schools...

158Rowan AtkinsonRowan Sebastian Atkinson, is an English actor, comedian, and screenwriter best known for his work on the sitcoms Blackadder and Mr.

The man's very good at physical comedy, able to contort his face into a variety of different and hilarious expressions, such as in Mr. Bean and Johnny English. He's also, however, has a great feel for verbal comedy, and really puts effort into making his performance the funniest he can make it. Good examples of this are shows such as Blackadder and/or any of his live performances (Rowan Atkinson Live is particularly side-splitting.). He said himself that it's not so much about the joke as it is about the performance of the joke. Aside from this, he's also a very intelligent and interesting man in real life, and, all in all, a genius in every sense of the word.

He is the funniest guy in this world, all his movie was so fantastic. He can makes anyone laugh

Not just for Mr Bean, his role in shows like Blackadder

Mr Bean, Johnny English. So Funny! - micahisthebest

great in caligula even if it was a short part but there are no small parts just small actors. - lolabunny145

I have rarely ever seen acting with so much passion as him in Lawrence of Arabia.

One of the greatest actors of all time
