Top Ten Greatest Actors
The Contenders: Page 3
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
I've never seen an actor so convincing in their roles! But the incredible thing is, he doesn't just act! He can sing, dance, fight and he just seems like such a nice guy. Jackman' got the whole package.V 47 Comments
Shooter- an exceptional movie. Italian Job wasn't that bad either.
He is the best actor in the past now in the present and he will remain the best actor
I fell there is a lot of disrespect towards this guy, will smith, adam sandler, and jim carrey but why? They are all extremely good actors.
Comidian,Action, this man can do anything.V 26 Comments
Matt Damon's obviously one of the best actors ever! His movies are so great, well picked and his acting is very believable
Matt Damon should be on the top 10 right now! he is an extremely talented actor and is very cute too. ive seen so many movies with him in them and i havent disliked any one of them! u go Matt! - biac000
It's worth watching all of his movies. It all has good stories and his acting is so GREAT! Plus the fact that he's a gorgeous good-looking man! Aw! My husband hates him...
He nailed it in Bourne...
And prove it in the Martian
Paul Newman at #44. Below Jared Leto and David Duchovney? I'm biased though. He's my #1.
Just look at his films: The Hustler: (Academy Award Nomination - Best Supporting Actor) The Verdict: (A. A. Nomination-BA) Cool Hand Luke: (A. A. Nomination-BA) Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. The Sting. Cat on a Hot Tin Roof: (A. A. Nomination) Hud: (A. A. Nomination-BA) The Color of Money: (A. A WIN-BA) Road to Perdition: (A. A. Nomination) The Hudsucker Proxy. Slap Shot. Rachel, Rachel (A. A. WIN-Best Movie) Absense of Malice: (A. A. Nomination-BA) Honorary Academy Award 1986.
7 Academy Award Nominations and 1 win.
Forget the awards. He was the ultimate professional actor, who even two years before his passing thought he could always do better. I think of Paul Newman as a guy who had "it. " He could say so much without saying a word. A great, great actor. P. N. RIP. - corebare32
I love Paul Newman and yes, he probably should be in the top ten, but the problem is who to take out? Everyone has their own opinion of course, but to me there are already actors not in the top ten that should be, mainly Dustin Hoffman and Anthony Hopkins. It's very easy to say that there are twenty or so actors that are top ten quality, but you've only got ten spots. With the current top ten, I think all are legit except Will Smith (who I still like, just not as much as others apparently do) and this Kahn from India that I've never seen. I would love to put Newman in the top ten, but not at the expense of an Al Pacino, Marlon Brando, or Daniel a Day-Lewis.
He's not only just a great actor, he is a great human being. He was always giving to charities and he made one himself. He was self-less and intelligent. x)
He had the most gorgeous blue eyes and he played some classic roles. Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Cool Hand Luke, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid! I can't believe he is under Channing effin' Tatum. Just because he's hot doesn't mean he's a good actor. Frankly, I think he is terrible. Paul Newman, all the way! - NicePants
Best of the best watch the old movies new guys you will see whom should be #1 on this list Paul Newman really is the very best!V 11 Comments
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
Awesome comidian and director he make the world laugh without saying a single word!
Tq so much lv u RIP
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

All actors in this list are really good, but they have different acting styles. But according to me, the one actor who does acting without any "over acting" is Mohanlal. But I really think we can't compare one's acting with the other one because they are from different part of the world and so their acting differs. For example, Mohanlal and Kamal Hassan are the best actors in India and the roles that they are doing here can't be done by Al Pacino, Marlon Brando, etc. Because of the change in their lifestyles. So according to me they are doing the best with the characters that they are getting yet I will go with the option Mohanlal, because of the widest range of characters he has portrayed.
He is the only actor apart from Kamal Hasan to win national awards 4 times.
Mohanlal is not only an actor but also a fantastic singer who has rendered voice for other actors as well.
If all actors in this world are given a common character to enact, then I am sure ...more
hey LALETTAN has to be in the no 1 position vijay and dep is miles and miles away from LALETTAN
What I say... No words to tell about his acting... Awesome... A PERFECT ACTOR EVER SEEN IN WORLD CINEMA... Forever...
Versatile actorV 662 Comments
VERY genius such an incredible actor I believe every moment he is in his character's skin. He's magnificient.
Amazing actor who may be one of best supporting actors. And the few handful of times he is given a leading role it is superb. When one's looks are not the reasons for ones success that's talent. Any role he could have taken and done just as good if not better.
why he is not higher in the list i do not know....GREAT actor, magnolia...boogie nights ...:P many more
One of the best actor ever!V 6 Comments
Didn't notice this topic, Eddie Murphy by himself dethrones all the others. His experience, and charismatic personality took him to that high level status that he is today. He is the phenom of acting. - Undertaker15-0
He just CAN'T be only #117! I mean seriously, he AT LEAST is supposed to be in the top 10!
Eddie is such an awesome man plus he did such a good job in norbit I mean come on he played a awesome guy and a fat lady at the same time. That guy can act
Eddie is one off the best actors I ever he can't be at 60V 7 Comments
"I have a fever, and the only prescription is MORE COWBELL"
- Christopher Walken - XxDoctorDrumsxX
He also appeared in Excess Baggage alongside Alicia Silverstone and Benicio Del Toro (as the dad of a ultra bratty yet snobby teenager who smokes a lot while staging a kidnapping, girl style, about to get her car stolen by a petty thief, with the same cute girl inside the trunk). - shelleyduvallfan10
No one surpasses Walken in the diversity of roles and talent including dance except James Cagney but no other actor can touch Cagney and his skills on and off the silver screen. It is a shame to see how far Walken has fallen on this list. His performance in movie The Deer Hunter was a masterpiece that was so provacative that it elevated De Niro and Streep star status as well.
There's something really wrong when this guy is at 44...what the heck...should be in top 20 for realV 14 Comments
He gave the common man the vision that he to could have charisma without being strikingly hansom. He was what every man wished he were, a self confident ladies man that was in charge in any situation. Is there any actor whose lines are more often quoted? As far as acting ability look no farther than "The Caine Mutiny" where at first you hated him. The hate later turned to pity and in the end to admiration. He could turn you every which way. Anthony Hopkins is the only living actor that comes close.
It wasn't that he was good looking. He just didn't take any s*** from anyone. Well, in MOST of his movies. But I would hire him as protection, or to solve who stole ANYTHING from me. "And we'll always have Paris" - joenav91
Bogey's natural talent and astounding presence on the screen is simply second to none, as yet. I'm an avid film enthusiast and critic, and I haven't yet seen anyone equal bogey's great performances. In my opinion he's the greatest screen actor to date.
Watch Bogart act and you will understand why the top 40 of this list is a complete joke.V 18 Comments
WOT A GREAT ACTOR!! a joy to watch and is great in every role
One of the best actor and directors in Hollywood, I don't mind to watch apocalypto the whole day.
He is the Michael Jordan of movies. - Baltimore1993
Great actor but Terrible person!V 21 Comments
He's got the most gorgeous voice, he makes his character unique love him x - WhOwAnTsToLiVeFoReVeR
Terrific British actor, both theatre and movies. Remember Die Hard (bad guys leader) and Robin Hood (again).
He is one of the greatest actors in the world.
He can act, direct and also sing. He has done Hollywood movies and independent films. Also He has performed in several plays.
Alan Rickman deserves Oscar nomination for Severus Snape.
RIP my good man. Since his passing I still think about him and I find it sad he never was honored with an Oscar when he showed he was more than capable of achieving one. He'll always be my favorite.V 16 Comments
Cranston is capable of portraying a very wide variety of characters. His earlier T.V. role as Hal on Malcom in the Middle is absolutely nothing like the other characters he plays. When one first watches the award-winning Breaking Bad, it is hard to believe he could ever play the goofy, incompetent Hal. Walter White (Breaking Bad) is a character with so much depth that Cranston completely personifies as well as makes his own.
Watch "Crawl Space" in season 4 of Breaking Bad. The end of the episode, with him in the crawl space breaking down is the BEST ACTING EVER DONE.
Why is he not higher on this list? That's bull that Matt Damon is a better actor than Bryan Cranston

HOW COULD BE OUR SAVIOR NOT ON THE NUMBER 1? ARNOLD WILL ALWAYS BE THE HERO BECAUSE OF COMMANDO. HE SHOULD BE ON NUMBER 1 BECAUSE OF HIS MOVIES LIKE TRUE LIES, TERMINATOR. YO, ARNOLD you'll ALWAYS BE THE BEST IN HOLLYWOOD MY VOTE IS ON YOU.
Can any one replace arnold in terminator series, I don't think so. He should be in top 20 at least. What a great acting in those movies. I think acting without any emotionin face, eyes and mind is too difficult than emotionful acting. He did a great work as machines without any emotions
idk if I spelt hiz name rite lol but he is awseme I meen the terminator kindergarten cop etc and he shood be in the top 10 - baseballman
The Jesus of action movies. at least top 20V 32 Comments
Why has this man not won an Emmy for his portrayal of Dr. House?
He is such a versatile actor, and fully commits himself to every role from House to Blackadder to Jeeves and Wooster to A bit of Fry and Laurie.
If you want proof, watch the House episode Detox, and then try to say that he didn't deserve the emmy.
One of the most underrated, versatile, and downright talented actors of the 20th century. The man has talent coming out of his ears. His brilliant comedic wit, his dry yet human charm. From Blackadder to House, the man is amazing. He can make you laugh one second, and cry the next. Definitely in my top five.
A great actor. Even better than House is his performance as Bertie Wooster in the BBC series.
Am I the only person who remembers Hugh Laurie from Friends?V 19 Comments
He is so SEXY! He is funny, smart and amazing. I am a huge C.A. fan and he is one of the reasons why. I just love how believable he is. I can't believe he plays Captain America, humble no ego and plays Torch which has a giant ego. Opposites but believable. He is underrated. Please give him respect. If you think Captain America is hot vote for Chris.
Two words. Captain America. This guy is an extremely talented actor and can really make you believe his role Just like he did to me in Captain America. Seriously vote for this guy he is the best actor ever!
Been watching his movies since I was "young", absolutely love the guy! Sweet, charming, and a great actor!
He's the best everV 12 Comments
Ok, he might be very selective in what he acts (which is obviously action movies), but I believe he is the best at what he does. He shows great intensity and desire in his field of acting. And that is why in my opinion he is one of the top actors overall, and the best action star by far.
Snatch, Lock stock and two smocking barrels, and the hilarious performance as the monk in Mean machine. That's why he is best
He isn't a very good actor, he doesn't experiment, and other than Revolver he sticks to safe films. But I think he is amazing, he doesn't try to be anything he's not and has a very good sense of humour.
Just because an actor is very specific with the kind of roles he takes doesn't mean he's not good at them, who cares if he likes action movies? He's really good at them and that's all that mattersV 28 Comments
Why David is the eighty-fifth in this competition, I will never know. This man is amazing and life changing. Not only is his acting beautiful, but the sheer amount of emotion he can summon with a snap of his fingers can lift your heart to the moon or rip out your heartstrings. I do love so many of these actors, but David was the one that inspires me the most. He deserves more than this. David is fantastic.
David Tennant is one of the best actors ON THIS GODDAMNED PLANET and totally is, like, in the top 10 of this list. Meaning: VOTE FOR TENNANT GUYS.
David Tennant is my favorite actor of all time although I only saw him on Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Hamlet and How to train your dragon that is good enough to qualify as my favorite. He is the best actor on this planet on any planet including Gallifrey. His is witty funny-Hilarious really and oh my gosh I scream every time I hear his voice and I scream every time I hear he's going to be in a serious movie role or has been in a movie I've seen!
I love You David Tennant And I love Doctor Who and everything else you have been in. Hang in there Jude (Okay I saw a part of Jude)

One of the best actors in the world. One of the kind actor. He should be #1 on that list. - tem
He does best in Pirates of the Carribean because he's so hot, but he acts really good in The Lord of the Rings. Pirate or elf, he does well as either. - amyhenry
Orlando bloom beats anyone anyway he is hot sexy and a great actor especially in lord of the rings and pirates of the Caribbean
He's not that good.V 22 Comments
