Top Ten Greatest Actors
The Contenders: Page 5
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.V 7 Comments
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.
2 Academy Awards 9 total nominations for best actor. Leave him in obscurity to show how intelligent you are.
Truly one of the Giants. A crime he is this low. Apparently the younger generation is in charge here
Stellar performance in "Bad day at Black Rock. In the top 50 for sure!V 4 Comments
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
He is such a great actor! He really tries to act the part and always succeeds! For me the best bit if work he has done is in the walking dead as Rick grimes
I LOVE THE WALKING DEAD AND LOVE ACTULLY
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.
Yes one of my favoritesV 7 Comments

The most charming man to walk on the earth. Thanks Cary for all the great characters you left us to watch and love.
What is wrong with you people? This is the greatest comedic actor to ever live, just go watch Bringin' Up Baby, the Ugly Truth, His girl Friday, Philadelphia Story-Without him that movie would have flopped. He was the model, the actor other actor tried to emulate to master comedic timing.
Debonair, handsome, polished. Did comedy and drama equally well. North by Northwest, Charade, An Affair to Remember, The Philadelphia Story, Bringing Up Baby, Arsenic and Old Lace...
Um, why is he not on the top ten?!V 6 Comments
Mammootty has won three National Film Awards, seven Kerala State Film Awards, eleven Filmfare Awards, eleven Kerala Film Critics Awards and five Asianet Film Awards (from fourteen nominations). In 1998, Government of India honored Mammootty, with its fourth highest civilian award, Padma Shri, awarded for his national service, including his contribution to the Indian film industry. He was conferred with Doctor of Letters degree by University of Calicut and University of Kerala in 2010... HE IS LEGEND!, PROUD OF YOUTH! One & only MEGA STAR MAMMOOTTY...
Incredible actor who cannot be replaced by any other actor in Indian film industry he is the most glamorous actor in malayalam film industry
It is to be noted that Mammootty won his third National award for his excellent acting in the movie Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar that too an english movie. Once again he proved his ability to deliver dialogues in an excellent manner. And how come an actor like Vijay comes in the second spot. I can't even think of comparing himself with other great actors.
The best actor...V 105 Comments
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 like him in Ghostbusters, Groundhogs Day, and the new Jungle Book. He is the bear in the Jungle Book
" Who Ya Gonna Call? GHOSTBUSTERS! " Seriously people

The awesome actor in bollywoodV 17 Comments
Are you kidding me he is a pro and he looks awesome at fast and furious. Really his net worth is 145 MILLION! He should be at least in the top 20! How on earth is this famous guy in 106th place? Really this guy is famous.
Main of Riddick and second main of Fast And furious...
Lost his good friend Paul Walker Not Long Ago
Fast and furious, Riddick, Pacifier, Guardians of the galaxy, saving privet ryan... And so many more epic movies.
Are you kidding he Is a Pro he should be 1st On this listV 13 Comments
WHAT! He was such a good actor in the How I Met Your Mother series he should at least be in the top ten
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
Neil Patrick Harris is quite good.FUN FACT-HE IS GAYV 10 Comments
Liam hemsworth should be here too
Thor is just different from all other marvel superhero. He is just amazing.
Can you say THOR... Wow!
THOSE MUSCLES! - matkohV 8 Comments
Too overrated. More a silly entertainer than an actor if you ask me. Not very convincing in serious roles and a total loss in comedy where he only can play a idiot or the bad acting not so funny type. Should be rightfully belong in the worst actors list instead this list.
He's an untalented idiot.
Right below Henry Fonda? Yeah, right.
excellent - yasimoviV 4 Comments
Well obviously he should be in the top 10. Anyone who knows anything about acting just needs to see "Kind Hearts and Coronets", "Bridge on the River Kwai", "The Ladykillers", "Dr. Zhivago", "Oliver Twist" etc. To know that this guy knows how to play his characters to a tee. Only behind Lord Olivier and Brando in my opinion.
He looks harmless and mediocre but when you see more movies you will notice that he can't be replaced. - Gaspar
One of the best and underrated actors in Hollywood. The Dude! The fact that he only won his first Oscar several years ago is sacrilege. Mr. Bridges has been at the top of the game for many years now, almost always Oscar worthy performances. Yet when he finally wins the award it is not even one of his best? Answer me that. Best performances #1- Jack, The Fisher King #2- Jeffrey Lebowski, The Big Lebowski - zacenroe86
Brilliant actor, seriously underrated - go back to his performance in StarMan -- especially considering it was shot out of sequence. OUTSTANDING
How is the Jeff Bridges not higher... I'm actually little confused right now. I'm not one of his fans, but he's been great in every movie I've seen him in, especially True Grit!
Always strong and diverse. Very under rated. He should be way higher than this.V 7 Comments
What. Why is Ralph Fiennes so low... Don't people really know who he is? If you don't know then he is a great actor who was Lord Voldermort in Harry Potter, Hades at The Clash Of Titans etc. He should be at top 5!
Brilliant movie and stage actor, very diversified profile
And now, for the Best Villain of all time, Ralph Fiennes. I mean, the guy can handle heroic roles, but he just has this menacing presence. He performance in Schindler's List, as Amon Goeth, was so convincing that it made a Holocaust survivor faint. Excellent actor, even better villain. Typecast?
#1- Amon Goeth, Schindler's List #2- Lord Voldemort, Harry Potter - zacenroe86
VOLDEMORT has no one watched the world wide phenomenon Harry Potter might ring a bell 🙀😂😭 he is not at 99 more near 20s to 50sV 5 Comments
greatest actor of all time
par with best in the world
if he was in hollywood then he would be regarded as the best in the world
many indian great actors like amitabh, rajendra kumar manoj kumar, srk aamir rajnikanth and countless actors are indebted to him for his inspirational acting
It's easy to make laugh but it is difficult to make people cry... He is 1 of the phenomenal actors India have ever produced... Present actors are just following the guidelines formulated by him.
Known as the tragedy King in Bollywood. He is the most respected actor. Some of his performances leaves you with everlasting feelings
Is this site meme? Ask the amtiabh or the sahrukh whom you added in top 10, about best actor ever? Then listen then carefully or after wearing berometer. And then change this.V 14 Comments
He's funny and does awesome acting
I don't know y he bothers acting loser alert
Haha NO big bang theory is Overrated and his voice is SOOO ANNOYINGV 3 Comments
Extraordinary. He was not given credit for his acting ability even when he was in the Top Ten box office draws for 22 straight years. Looking over this list I see the demographics are severely weighted toward the younger generation. I would invite you to watch Mr. Wayne in Island in the Sky, The Searchers, The Shootist, or The Cowboys and watch some of the true subtleties of acting genius. Also, look for titles with the following actors; Gary Cooper, James Stewart, Charles Laughton, Cary Grant, Clark Gable, Paul Newman, Gregory Peck, Burt Lancaster, and especially, Walter Pidgeon (Mrs Miniver, How Green was My Valley, Manhunt). Please enjoy.
If I was ever stranded on an island I would want to be with him, I think
He was a lot in real life as he was in the movies, tall, handsome, kind &
200% male there will never be another John Wayne, EVER!
He is the greatest and my favorite. He made over 200 movies. - moose4life19
Zac Efron is above John Wayne. I've officially lost faith in humanity. - ollivV 21 Comments
