Top Ten Greatest Actors

The Contenders: Page 5

81 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.

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!

I can't even think of comparing himself with other great actors.

87 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.

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.

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

92 Alec Guinness Alec Guinness Sir Alec Guinness was an English actor. After an early career on the stage, he was featured in several of the Ealing Comedies, including The Ladykillers and Kind Hearts and Coronets in which he played eight different characters.

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

93 Chris Hemsworth Chris Hemsworth Chris Hemsworth is an Australian actor. He is best known for his roles as Kim Hyde in the Australian TV series Home and Away and as Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe films Thor, The Avengers, Thor: The Dark World and Avengers: Age of Ultron.

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! - matkoh

94 Ashton Kutcher Ashton Kutcher

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 - yasimovi

95 Jeff Bridges Jeff Bridges Jeffrey Leon "Jeff" Bridges is an American actor, singer and producer. He comes from a prominent acting family, and appeared on the television series Sea Hunt, with his father, Lloyd Bridges and brother, Beau Bridges.

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.

96 Ralph Fiennes Ralph Fiennes

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 50s

97 Dilip Kumar

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.

100 Jared Padalecki Jared Padalecki Jared Tristan Padalecki is an American actor. He grew up in Texas and rose to fame in the early 2000s after appearing on the television series Gilmore Girls as well as such films as New York Minute and House of Wax.

Jared deserves so much... Not only is he one of the most awesome actors I've seen in a long time, but he has not let his growing popularity go straight to his head. He is down to earth, he truly cares about people, and his fans. He gives way over 100% of himself to be sure he is giving the best he can to deliver what he know we, as fans of his, are going to love, without taking a thing for granted. His performances have been above and beyond outstanding. You feel every bit of emotion he shows and I've not seen that from many actors in ages. He is truly meant to have every bit of recognition that can possibly be sent his way. He is a truly inspiring person for so many. We, the fans have seen and heard him and what he does and how hard he works shows that he as truly seen and heard us. We have him secured as truly in our hearts as we absolutely know and trust he has us in his. For all these reasons and more, Jared Tristan Padalecki is the most deserving actor today that I will say ...more

Excuse me, but this man deserves to be way up at the top! He is an amazing actor. He doesn't even have to utter a word, as he has such much expression in his face alone. If any actor deserves an Emmy, it's Jared Tristan Padalecki! Let's get up to #1. - kristinludwig

A lot of the actors higher on this list are from a by gone era. And they belonged in the Top Ten Actors of their time. Yet we must look to the era we are in. Though Jared has shown a style hardening back to those times. , poised and confident. Conducts himself honorable in all endeavors. Someone the viewers look up to. Talents unquestionable. Saddens me, his standing on this list is not higher.

Jared is not only an amazing actor, he's also as normal a person as you or I. He's had his struggles and isn't afraid to admit them. He has big heart and isn't afraid to share what he can of himself with us fans, treating us as family. He is also humble, down to earth, kind and generous. And a wonderful family man as a husband and father. He gives so much and doesn't ask for anything in return. He has earned and deserves so much.
