Top Ten Greatest Actors

The Contenders: Page 4

61 Bruce Lee Bruce Lee Bruce Lee was a Hong Kong American martial artist, action film actor, martial arts instructor, philosopher, filmmaker, and the founder of Jeet Kune Do.

He was not only a good actor he inspired a whole race to start following their dreams. He was also an amazing martial artist. - fimbulwinter

Acting since he was six years old and believable in every scene. He did not want to be known as a "Kung Fu superstar" but wanted to be remembered as an actor. OK he is the greatest film fighter and was the greatest real life fighter but all his characters are believable in terms of body language and speech delivery. Just think about it the next time you watch a Bruce Lee film and compare how much you believe the characters he plays to the characters in this list

The strongest there was, no one could beat this man. I mean just pure amazing all his stunts were real.

I think he is the god in the fighting

62 Chris Evans Chris Evans Christopher Robert Evans is an American actor. Evans is best known for his superhero roles as the Marvel Comics characters Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the Human Torch in Fantastic Four.

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 was definitely one of the high points of the Fantastic Four movies, and also is great in his role as Captain America. Oh, and he's also SMOKING HOT.

He starred in many films that are considered to be classics, ...read more.

Greatest actor off all time. He could play anything from drama, comedy, thriller, romance, action to family oriented films. He even played the bad guy in the second The Thin Man film.

one of the greats and always a true gentleman

He was awesome as George Bailey in "it's a Wonderful Life" - Ajkloth

Wow not top ten, His movies are still on 50 years later

64 Hugh Laurie Hugh Laurie James Hugh Calum Laurie, is an English actor, writer, director, musician, singer, comedian, and author.

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?

Michael clayton

ocean's 11 12 13 - yasso

I liked him best in "The Descendants"

One of the greatest actor of all time. Should be in Top 20, I reckon!

I never found him attractive. He's so boring! - olliv

66 Ryan Gosling Ryan Gosling Ryan Thomas Gosling is a Canadian actor, musician, and producer. He began his career as a child star on the Disney Channel's Mickey Mouse Club and went on to appear in other family entertainment programs including Are You Afraid of the Dark?

Thought I would round off my list with, well not really an up and comer, but one that is definitely talented. Ryan Gosling is another who simply can not turn in a poor performance. Think back, can you remember one? In 2006 his performance in Half Nelson was unbelievable. I think he deserved the Best Picture, even with how good Hoffman was as Capote. There's another actor I left off... Gosling will have a Best Actor very soon, it will happen. Excellent actor, Gary Oldman Jr.
#1- Dan Dunne, Half Nelson #2- Driver, Drive - zacenroe86

Ryan is one of the best actors of today I have ever seen, he is very talented and very virsitile... anyone who can go from playing a nazi, to a mentally disturbed teen, to a hopeless romantic from the 40s, and make me believe it, has my vote! - inpeaces

You give this guy the right role he will win an Oscar.. I liked him in "Fracture"... He played along side Anthony Hopkins... A great performance...

Shouldn't be above James Stewart. - olliv

67 Bruce Willis Bruce Willis Walter Bruce Willis, known professionally as Bruce Willis, is an American actor, producer, and singer.

I always adore Bruce and Denzel, as Denzel is up high there, and Bruce here?

he may not won an Oscar or what, but he is a GREAT actor, period!

he is a versatile actor, see him in Pulp fiction, The sixth sense, Die hard or The whole nine yards? all exceptional!

he maynot be top 10, but he come easily as top 20! Cmon he is great! I LOVE die hard! - mesh13

He adds humor, suspense, and good looks to any movie that he is in.

This man has got to be the new Chuck Norris. After seeing Die Hard 4 that is... - TKDCats312

Should be a lot higher then this...top 5

68 Robert Duvall Robert Duvall Robert Selden Duvall is an American actor and director. He has been nominated for seven Academy Awards, seven Golden Globes, and has multiple nominations and one win each of the BAFTA, Screen Actors Guild Award, and Emmy Award.

Are we forgetting his amazing performance in The Godfather, Apocalypse Now and the role that won him his first and what would appear to be his only academy award Tender Mercies? He is so diverse with his acting.

Will Smith? Robert Pattinson? Bruce Lee? Eddie Murphy? Adam Sandler? Really? Duvall is everyman. Enough said.

the only thing I have ever seen him in was stalin which is one of my favourite films he was noo longer robert duvall but joseph stalin - alucard

He is not related to Shelley Duvall because both actors share the same last name. - shelleyduvallfan10

69 Christoph Waltz Christoph Waltz Christoph Waltz is an Austrian-German actor that has won 2 Academy Awards for Best Supporting Actor for his collaborations with director Quentin Tarantino in Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained.

"What? I could not resist! "- Christopher Waltz, Django Unchained

Inglorious bastards was great and his role in it was almost as great as Hannibal lecter portrayal by Hopkins, and that saying a lot

He is one on the best, he is not only a genies but also a great actor

Django was actually the best

He first gained exposure on Saturday Night Live, for which he earned his first Emmy Award and later went on to star in comedy films, including Meatballs, Caddyshack, Stripes, Tootsie, Ghostbusters, Ghostbusters II, Scrooged, What ...read more.

I like him in Ghostbusters, Groundhogs Day, and the new Jungle Book. He is the bear in the Jungle Book

Normally he isn't all that great, but in What About Bob he gives one of the greatest comedy performances ever, as does Dreyfuss.

I don't think he's a truly amazing actor, but he deserves to be higher on this list.

TE BEST OF ALL TIME

72 Michael Fassbender Michael Fassbender Michael Fassbender is a German-Irish actor of stage and screen whose career includes roles in both independent and blockbuster films, most notably; Hunger, Inglourious Basterds, Shame, X-Men: First Class, Prometheus, 12 Years a Slave, Frank, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and Steve Jobs.

I've followed him for a long time and am proud to say that I am a Fassy addict. He has always shone himself as a wonderful role model and is as classy as any of the other actors out there. He opens himself up to learning and developing his role. I just hope he as a long run at this. To me he is a universal star and guy in all that he does. He is also kind to others too. Thanks for letting me comment.

I love to put more comments under his name.
it's an eyecatcher. I'm sure people just voted for Brad Pitt because they didn't notice Michael is in this list as well.
He is! Here! So vote for him!

A thinking actor with scads of talent and the grace of a dancer, Fassbender has a long promising career ahead and will doubtlessly be considered one of the greats by the time he is done.

How is he not in the top ten?
He is an INSANELY versatile actor. He was amazing in Prometheus and then somehow topped that performance in Alien Covenant. And when I watched Steve Jobs I was blown away at how every minute of the film not only did he look more like Jobs but he talked more like Jobs. I'd say that his weakest performance for me would've been the X-men trilogy and that isn't even his fault. He was surrounded by an a-list cast and he had to top sir Ian Mckellen (which I believe he did).

75 Jeremy Renner Jeremy Renner Jeremy Lee Renner is an American actor (born 1971) best known for his role as Clint Barton / Hawkeye in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

He is such an amazing actor and awesome in general he should really be higher on this list! I'm sure he will be soon after the success of the avengers and the Bourne legacy

What the hell is this! He is in the most successful movies and one of the most best and talented actors in Hollywood industry he should be in top 25 at least. Come on people vote for him.

He is the best the actor in the world by far!

He is cool

76 Spencer Tracy Spencer Tracy Spencer Bonaventure Tracy (April 5, 1900 - June 10, 1967) was an American actor, noted for his natural style and versatility. During his career, Tracy appeared in 75 films and developed a reputation among his peers as one of the screen's greatest actors.

A true star and great actor. His characters were always true to life, they had flaws and realism, his emotions came across real, and he demanded your attention when he was on screen in spite of his every man appearance (or perhaps because of it). He could be lovable, cantankerous, tough, or anything else the part called for and it was never obvious he was acting like many lesser actors of his day. If a movie has Spencer Tracy in its cast it is worth a look and often more than one.

Stellar performance in "Bad day at Black Rock. In the top 50 for sure!

2 Academy Awards 9 total nominations for best actor. Leave him in obscurity to show how intelligent you are.

Spencer Tracy, Bogie,so low in the poll...who is voting on these high school kids?

80 Steve McQueen Steve McQueen Terence Steven "Steve" McQueen was an American actor. Called "The King of Cool", his "anti-hero" persona, developed at the height of the counterculture of the 1960s, made him a top box-office draw of the 1960s and 1970s.

the KING of cool the best actor from the 60's an excellent race car driver and motocrosser too.

His characters in Great Escape and Magnificent Seven were two of the coolest in cinema history and a better actor than he was ever given credit for.

Another actor in the wrong place on this list should be way higher

This IS the greatest character actor in the history of cinema. TCA my favourite film. Mr Crown the epitome of class, intelligence, style and X factor.
