The Top Ten

1 Orlando Bloom Orlando Bloom Orlando Jonathan Blanchard Bloom is an English actor. After having his breakthrough as Legolas in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, he rose to fame by further appearing in epic fantasy, historical epic, and fantasy adventure films.

He deserves to be number one! I mean Matt Damon, come on! Orlando Bloom totally dominates him! He's hot + such an amazing actor!

2 Johnny Depp Johnny Depp John Christopher "Johnny" Depp II is an American actor, producer, and musician. He has won the Golden Globe Award and Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Actor. His role in a movie is often rather big. His character is often on the "loopy side" and his character being in a darker state of mind, etc.

Johnny Depp is the best Character actor in history, in my opinion. He is not like Nicholas Cage or Will Smith (One of my favorites) as he can play any roll, no mater how odd, as if it was a completely different person playing the part.

Pirates of the Caribbean Movies, Finding Neverland, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and Sweeney Todd. - Bman23

Really Awesome. My favorites with him are Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Rango.

He is the best actor ever, I love him and he can be so convertible in all different movies he is perfect😍❤

3 Christian Bale Christian Bale Christian Charles Philip Bale is an English actor. He has starred in both blockbuster films and smaller projects from independent producers and art houses.

For sure he deserves a top place here, a great actor with great talent and great movies and he has many time to prove for future too - MatrixGuy

Not only is he batman but Christian bale has rocked the 2000s. He was brilliant in American Psycho and the mechanic. Bonus points for his role in The Fighter.

He should be on the top of the list. Actually his style is far better than the others on this list. "He Is King Of Hollywood"

The dark night is the best movie ever! - steelers1979

4 Matt Damon Matt Damon

ACTION, Comedy, Drama...
I was actually making the list of the things he can do, but it would be easier to make a list of what he can't do...
Overacting, make you hate him, and other things which most of the actors do, but not BOURNE...

Bourne Movies, Ocean Movies, The Departed, The Good Shepherd, and The Legend of Bagger Vance. - Bman23

A veteran character actor who delivers.

Damon is the best

5 Heath Ledger Heath Ledger Heathcliff Andrew Ledger was an Australian actor and director. After performing roles in Australian television and film during the 1990s, Ledger left for the United States in 1998 to develop his film career.

Seriously, how can one pick Depp over Heath Ledger? That's wrong! Ledger's acting abilities are so much more than Depp and his PR team can ever have.

This man was such an insanely good actor. It's so awful that he died! I hate that I can't see more of his acting.

He was overall in my opinion the best actor who ever lived... RIP Heath Ledger- You Will Not Be Forgotten.

Shame that he died. A great character actor.

Leonardo has successfully changed hats on more than one occasion in his career. Strikes me as a hard worker.

What how is he not number 1, compare all of his 2000s movies to anyone else on this list and it's clear he is better.

20 Tom Cruise Tom Cruise Tom Cruise is an American actor and filmmaker. Cruise has been nominated for three Academy Awards and has won three Golden Globe Awards.

Cruise stamped his persona as a star by churning out many hit movies in the new millennium, be it his death defying stunts in the mission Impossible movies or his epic performance in the last samurai, he showed versatility. And who could forget his role of bad ass vincent in collateral, one that is highly underrated but one of the best of all time...
