Top Ten Greatest Actors
The Contenders: Page 2
I was torn between Nicholson and Hopkins, but I just had to go with him simply because of Hannibal Lecter. Definitely one of the greatest performances in film history, and one of the best-deserved Best Actor awards ever.
No contest. Anthony Hopkins is without any doubt the greatest actor OF ALL TIME! Forget Silence of the Lambs, good film of course. His performance in Titus is untouchable. Meet Joe Black, astounding! The Remains of the Day, truly remarkable. I could go on and on. This man has a gift for acting like no other, it's a shame to see the actors of today.
Johnny Depp, your kidding me right. Is it because his portrayal of Willy Wonka just captured the essence of the film. What a lousy excuse of an actor, seriously.
Anthoy Hopkins the worlds greatest actor. Outstanding performances in Silence of the Lambs and Hannibal
Sir Anthony n°26? Madness has an important role down here... - Ribaldo67V 50 Comments
Gary Oldman is so underrated. He is more versatile than half the actors mentioned above, and has so much talent that on the screen he can keep you captivated film after film. He needs to get an Oscar, he is amazing and I love him!
Brilliant is the word I would use to coin Oldman, simply brilliant. He has played Dracula, Lee Harvey Oswald, Beethoven, Sid Vicious! The diversity of these characters is testament to the versatility of Oldman. Choosing his best role is a little simpler than Lewis. #1- Stansfield, Leon #2- Lee Harvey Oswald, JFK - zacenroe86
Why is his man not number one on this list? He can out-act everyone. EVERYONE! Enough said.
He is one of the most underrated character actors. He can play anything and with enough makeup you do not even know it is him. One of only a handful of actors I will watch a movie just because they are in it.V 55 Comments
Lets not forget this actor. Who else can do commedy & drama better.
Robin Williams is the best actor in the world. Who can forget his brilliant acting in "Dead Poets Society'. He can do any kind of a role with total conviction.
How can the best actor in the world be no 83!
He was great at Mr. doubtfire and old dogs they were very good movies
Mrs. Doubtfire was a HILARIOUS movie, I also liked his role in Jumanji - PixtolV 66 Comments
A no 1 in B town and he should in top ten worlds actor. He is best among all the actor. I think he gives at this age marvelous performance. I saw recent movie buddha hoga tera baap he gives great performance bole toh do daala sub ko.
I don't agree with this ranking of Mr. Bachchan. It's impossible that he is #41. He is the only actor whose movie all three generations sit together to watch. From 11 years old to 90, everyone is a fan of Mr. Bachchan. He is a living legend. The popularity, love, respect, and stardom of Mr. Bachchan is incomparable. And there's NO WAY Shah Rukh Khan is #10. It's just wrong.
he is the best among all the actors inf act only he is the actor who makes you cry during his dead scene & makes you laugh during comedy. he is beyond all the fame. no one in the world can compare his talent. he is simply superb. some times he choose the wrong film but then he is also a man. but at this age, he gives his marvelous performance. I think he should not be compare with any actors in the world because he is already best and beyond great actors.

Chan is known as one of the greatest stunt actor of all-time. The sheer danger of the moves he employs are evidenced by the amount of injuries he has incurred. Chan broke his skull on the set of Armour of God, and has broken the majority of fingers in his hand. Further, he has also broken his nose, both cheekbones, jaw, hips, sternum, neck, toes, and ankle.
He holds the Guinness World Record for Most Stunts By A Living Actor
He is master of martial arts best actor - cocowater
A great kung fu master in films, great comedy fighter or actor, singer, dangers stunts man. He is real fighter. I thought jackie chan is only actor who done most risky moves and stunt in all his movies... Hades off him. I really like him

Ok he has won more MTV awards than anyone else in human history... No one has put on one of his films and not laughed! No one
He's so funny. Even when he is trying to be serious.
He is god in my mind. He is the best comedy actor, I have ever seen. Me, myself and Irene is Carrey's the best film and The Mask is good too. That man makes me laugh.
He is so funny - Carri796V 89 Comments
American Beauty, The Usual Suspects, LA Confidential, Swimming With Sharks, and ,without a doubt the most fascinating role of his, John Doe in Se7en - aman28
He is pretty underrated. Never the first actor you think of, but he's been in so many great movies and have had many extremely amazing performances. - dark2025
He brings it in every film. Some of my favorites that hasn't been mention is the negotiatoe and k-pax but love everything he does
American beauty is a amazing movie with a great storyline and Kevin spacey is amazing in it.V 20 Comments

He is the best actor in the world. No one can't do his style he is the god of Indian moviesV 212 Comments
Edward Norton is an exceptionally talented actor. His performances in Fight Club and Primal Fear were par excellence.
Edward Norton is one of the most talented and yet underrated actors of our time.. His movies have become cult films.. Primal Fear, American History X, Fight Club, The 25th Hour... He has played alongside other great actors such Robert Deniro, Marlon Brando, Richard Geere, John Malkovich.. He's my FAVOURITE and I love him..! Oh, and in Death to Smoochy, he was unbelievably cute! He can easily transform from a corrupt drug dealer into a hippo with the same depth and devotion he has always given into his movies.. Go Edward..
Add Edward Nortons name along with Philip Seymour Hoffmans as the two most versitile and excellent Actors of our time. They continue to astonish me with the amount of range they can cover when doing different Characters. I am always anxiously awaiting their next foray into their next "best work". The two things that I find most satisfying about the both of them is that they are both relatively young and their best work is probably in front of them. -
He is the bestV 69 Comments
Do you guys seriously have special needs will ferrell has to be one of the funniest actors in the past 20 years him and adam sandler
ARE YOU JOKING, STEPBROTHERS?!, ANCHORMAN?!, TALLEDEGA NIGHTS?!, ELF?!, THE OTHER GUYS, THE CAMPAIGN?!, SEMI-PRO?! AND MEGAMIND - markusl
Will Ferrell is the best actor ever I've seen every movie he has ever been in and let me tell ya he has never done a bad job in any of them plus I worked with him for a few years since I was in the movie, journey to the center of the earth with him
I love this guy so funny - Ilovedolphins4bV 35 Comments
He's a living proof that 'Brain is definitely the new sexy'.

He is amazing in The Atonement, BBC Sherlock, Amazing Grace and many more!
All time best.V 221 Comments
Ok, Philadelphia was a great movie, but HOW ON EARTH did Liam Neeson NOT get the Oscar for Best Actor in a Leading Role for Schindler's List?
Liam Neeson's performance as Michael Collins was also outstanding - just watch old footage to see how much he looks and sounds like the real M. Collins.
Gangs of New-York, Seraphim Falls, Rob Roy... He always excels in his roles.
Definitely one of the most underrated actors!
Really people? Liam Neeson at number 42? He is in the top three, probably number one. Johnny Depp is extremely talented, but come on. His most famous roles are all the same person really. Liam Neeson, on the other hand, has played everybody. From Schindler's list to Taken to the Grey to Non-Stop, Neeson has acted in practically every genre of movie and stolen the show every single time. And seriously who the heck put an Indian guy at the top? No offense meant to Indian's but just no. Heck no, there is no way that Liam Neeson, Jack Nicholson, Robert Downey Jr. , and Robert De Niro are below some Shahrukh Khan person. That's bull crap at its finest. Un--believable...
How in God's good name is Liam Neeson NUMBER 104!? (I'm Agnostic... haha... God's good name)
I rate Liam as the best - Viper718

I Love this Actor Please vote Adam Sandler because Every movie was a success and a big hit! Like 50 First Dates, Bed Time Stories, Wedding Singer, Water boy, Happy Gilmore, Little Nicky, Big daddy. The Longest Yard, Click, Just go with it Lastly but not least : Just Go with it
He's simply the best.. I mean he can make you laugh without even saying a word
Adam Sandler is the best actor/comedian ever because, he made such great movies such as, That's My Boy, Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, and he also did a great job in Hotel Transylvania. And plenty more great movies ( These were just off my head) Johnny Depp is no where near the skill of Adam Sandler. Adam is my favorite actor and I hope you Agree
Sandler? GOOD AT ACTING?V 90 Comments
Guys, let's vote for Russell Crowe. He's very talented guy. Just watch L.A. Confidential, A Beautiful Mind, Gladiator, Romper Stomper, The Insider, Proof of Life etc. He won 1 Oscar but deserves at least 3. Great Actor - Magnolia
He is a phenomenal actor, his roles as Maximums and John Nash were flawless and he just brings so much energy into his roles
Russel Crowe is the balls! He did a terrific work in The Gladiator and A Beautiful Mind. Sure he hasn't done as many movies as Johnny Depp or Al Pacino, but he definitely deserves the third rank after these guys. He is a very versatile actor who can fit into a Roman slave to a autistic mentally challenged genius. Hats Off to his work!
The greatest actor of all time❤️V 44 Comments
Very nice and down to earth guy! He stole the show when I went to see the avengers, with him as loki! He was so connected with the character he played, and he didn't lose focus while doing so.
HOW THE HECK IS HE NUMBER 223?!? HE SHOULD BE NUMBER ONE! Loki the villain twice. He is the only character to ever make my cry. He's done Shakespeare, he's done television and he is the very definition of sexy. LETS GET HIM HIGHER PEOPLE!
He's amazing! How can you not love him? He's the perfect Loki! I need to watch more movies with him in it, but he's simply charming!
He's such a cool guy. I swear if I got to meet him, I'd literally die. - Catlover2004V 735 Comments
HE great as always Every character played was awesome. His voice alone could win an Oscar.I want to see you in the historical role...
Barun Sobti nicest guy in the world and represents an excellent manner, and I like his performance in the series ipkknd and also starred in several countries and continents such as Turkey, Russia, Georgia, Egypt, Dubai, Algeria, and many countries
You are the best barun sobti keep rocking

He is a good actor, just watch the fountain, kate and leopad and prestige, and also he is agood host too, just see 81st academy award function.
! Hugh Jackman should be #1 for all of the movies has done then and especially now. I love Hugh Jackman and I would definitely love to meet him one day! Hugh, if you see this then I appreciate you and all you have done. You're the best! ~Haylo
He is very versatile in his roles and is very convincing
Oh Yes! Hugh Jackman. And You May Know Him as Wolverine. Sadly, he's Done With The Wolverine Films Since Logan Was The Last One - ScourgeTheRippahV 44 Comments
Best actor ever! Deserves to be in top 5, at least top 10! I Am Sam was the best movie I have ever seen. I cried like a baby! I think he and Tom Hanks are greatest ever. Put them in a movie together and just watch the tickets fly at the box office! Penn, Hanks, De Niro, Pacino, Brando, Hopkins, Hoffman, Denzel Washington, Nicholson, Daniel Day Lewis. Those are top ten no specific order. Love them, they define what Hollywood should be.
He is the actor of his Generation, and deserves to be in the Top 10, alongside Daniel Day-Lewis, Marlon Brando, Al Pacino & Robert de Niro. I think he is placed number 45, because he doesn't appear in The Big Blocbusters, and that is RIDICULOUS! Who can forget his courageous performance in Dead Man Walking? Or his thrilling & intense performances in: She's So Lovely, Hurlyburly, I Am Sam, Mystic River, Milk & in The Tree of Life, he was spellbinding and made some moments that will never be erased from my memory. Bravura! One of The Maestro's of Acting.
This top ten list sickens me with horrible mainstream actors that attract the public for their looks such as Robert Pattinson can pass the superb acting of Sean Penn who has won the most oscars for a leading role and all the emotions he puts into the films which revolve around him

Greatest film actor/director/producer of all time. He entertained for 75 years, and if it was not for him, modern cinema would not be even close to where it is today. Thus, he does not deserve to not be in the Top 10, let alone the top 100.
Let's change this! R.I. P Charles Spencer Chaplin.
I can't believe he's not already topping, let alone on, the list.
Definitely the greatest -
He is very versatile, dynamic, and true thespain. he is the emperor of Indian cinema as how the akbar the great in Indian history, there is no one before him or during his acting period nor thereafter who can at least stand to his par excellence in the Bollywood. every don of Bollywood era just end to compare or to compare himself like dilip saab. not amitabh, rajesh khanna, raj kapoor, rajkumar, devanand, nor the present khan's try to think to compare themselves with dilip saab. he is true emperor of Indian cinema of all times if he was in Hollywood, definitely he would be don of Hollywood also. he is also very true gentleman also with respect to his moral ethics, very humble, polite, soft spoken and generous too as well... He has every thing
Don't know if the best actor ever. Certainly in the top 20. And certainly the greatest personality of cinema ever! - Ribaldo67V 22 Comments
