144Geoffrey 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!

146Sir Ian MckellenSir Ian Murray McKellen is an English actor. He is the recipient of six Laurence Olivier Awards, a Tony Award, a Golden Globe Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award, a BIF Award, two Saturn Awards, four Drama Desk Awards and two Critics' Choice Awards.

234?
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!

The rating is biased I think

147Kevin Costner

Something about him annoys me to no end. I really want to like his movies, but every time he comes on screen I just feel irritated.

Everything he does, he does so very well!

148Daniel 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

149Rajesh 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.

150John 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

151Jamie FoxxEric Marlon Bishop, known professionally by his stage name Jamie Foxx, is an American actor, singer, songwriter and comedian.

153Chiranjeevi

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...

155Robert 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.

156James McAvoy

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.

157Jonathan Rhys Meyers

Jonathan Rhys Meyers is the number one actor of our present times. He has an outstanding career since when he left school. 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... He is adored by millions of fans woldwide as his characters cover the whole range of the social spectrum... Just watch him from CIA agent in Mission Impossible I to a journalist who saves children in Escape from Huan Shi or as a Politician in Belle de Seigneur next to Natalia Vodianova... His amazing career has also given us films like Prozac Nation, The Loss of Sexual Innocence, Matchpoint directed by Woody Allen... The Tesseract, Octane, From Paris with Love... This is an actor that should have been given an Oscar for each of his films... His brilliant career and life is an excellent role model for today's young ...more

158Jack 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

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.
