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!

No he played two superheroes who does that you can't do that he doesn't deserve the top 100. Don't get me wrong he is a ok actor for Captain America, but he should stay Cap for the rest of his life there is no better for cap than him but he is not that good of a actor

63 Dwayne The Rock Johnson Dwayne The Rock Johnson Dwayne Douglas Johnson, also known by his ring name The Rock, is an American and Canadian actor, producer and semi-retired professional wrestler, signed with WWE.

He's a great actor, a great man and he was a great wrestler! I love him and I love his movies. I can't wait to see G.I. jOE: Retaliation next June 29th

The greatest of all time. If you some smell what the is cooking... His body is awesome... The face of wwe...

It's somehow fitting that the Rock and Arnold are together on this list, except it should be a lot lower.

He is very brilliant actor and fighter and he is handsome guy. I like you so much.

64 Mohan Lal Mohan Lal Mohanlal Viswanathan Nair (born 21 May 1960), better known as Mohanlal (and affectionately by fans as "Lalettan"), is an Indian actor best known for his work in Malayalam films. Film critics, contemporaries, and other experts consider him as one of the greatest actors in Indian cinema for his versatile ...read more.

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...

He is certainly better than 95% of the actors listed in this list.

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...

He should be in top20. I am very disappointed with this list

one of the greats and always a true gentleman

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

71 Akshay Kumar Akshay Kumar Rajiv Hari Om Bhatia, better known by his stage name 'Akshay Kumar', is a Canadian actor, producer and martial artist who has appeared in over a hundred Hindi films.

Powerful, Inspirational, Khiladi, the New King. These are just some of the many words used to describe Akshay Kumar. He is unarguably the most influential persons in the Indian Film Industry and why not; they don't just call him the man with the Midas touch for nothing; everything he touches seems to turn to gold, huge box office returns and one of the only Indian stars to ensure a record breaking opening at the box office with five back-to-back hits and the whopping zeroes added to his cost per film. Akshay Kumar is the new indisputable King of Bollywood.

Love him or Hate him he's still gonna Rock
If not an actor, Akki would probably end up as, no surprise here, a martial arts teacher!

Akshay Kumar is the most versatile indian actor. He can act superbly on every genres. He is king of action, comedy, acting etc etc. He can act any role.

Best

73 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 should be in the top 10! He's not there because he isn't very famous, but he deserves to be famous

One of the best actors I have seen

74 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

75 Ben Stiller Ben Stiller Benjamin Edward Meara "Ben" Stiller is an American actor, comedian, and filmmaker. He is well known for his roles in various comedies including There's Something About Mary, Zoolander, DodgeBall: A True Underdog Story, and Tropic Thunder.

IIn Dodgeball he makes the perfect enemy. With the snobbiness and self-centeredness, he is fabulous! - amyhenry

Ben Stiller is my favorite actor by far. I loved Tower Heist and Little Fockers. Ben Stiller is boss and should be in the top ten. He is hilarious and is a fan favorite. Come on Ben!

Night at the Museum is awesome and he is amazing.

He has no talent at all. He's only where he is because of his talented parents. Nepotism strikes again.

He should be in top20 cause he's gay and he acted in "How I Met Your Mother" as a dude who really interested in women and hot chicks come on guys (and gals) he should at least be in Top10.

When I'm sad, I stop being sad and be awesome instead... true story. - HeavyDonkeyKong

78 Salman Khan Salman Khan

SALMAN IS THE BIGGEST MASS FAN FOLLOWING HERO IN iNDIA AND ASLO IN ASIA. HIS CONNECT TO THE PEOPLE IS AMAZING. HE IS THE ONLY HERO WHO SPEND 50% OF HIS MONEY TO PEOPLE THROUGH IS CHARTY "BEING HUMAN". AND THIS IS BIGGEST CHARTY IN INDIA RUN BY AN INDIVIDUAL.

HE IS THE BOX-OFFICE BLOCK BUSTER HERO, EVER IN INDIA, HE IS KNOWN FOR HIS HANDSOME LOOKS, EXCELLENT PHYSIC AND WITH AWESOME MANNERISM. CURRENTLY HE IS THE BIGGEST HERO IN ASIA, WHO TAKES REMUNERATION OVER 50 CRORES FOR A FILM.
OUT OF TOP 6 HIGH COLLECTED MOVIES 3 ARE OF HIS OWN.

I THINK THE PERSON WHO RATED THIS IS A BIG FOOL AND AND NOT EVEN KNOW ABOUT SALMAN
IN INDIA, SALMAN WAS CALLED SALLU BHAI, IT MEANS BROTHER TO ALL THIS FANS.

HE IS SIMPLY SUPER MAN OF INDIA.

Salman khan is most power full Indian actor that is why I like him besides Salman have impressive personality I mean that he is distinct actor in Bollywood very often I have seen to support helpless person anyway such as event happened meany time with salman, those got success way afterword those betrayed him best example Katrina in spite that he is doing selfless service so due this occurrence over there he become incarnation of lord of Bollywood. Meany people have let him down but did not influence on his. He is number 1 hero also Indian founder of human being nowadays

Great human being and superstar of Bollywood, Salman Khan!

Shocked to see bhai at this position, indias moat versatile actor with highest fan following, but as this isn't certified and salman doesn't cares about this,sooo we love you @salman n @BHuman always.
