Top Ten Greatest Actors

The Contenders: Page 5

81 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.

82 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.

WHAT! He was such a good actor in the How I Met Your Mother series he should at least be in the top ten

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

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.

Neil Patrick Harris is quite good.FUN FACT-HE IS GAY

85 Sir Laurence Olivier Sir Laurence Olivier Laurence Kerr Olivier, Baron Olivier was an English actor who, along with his contemporaries Ralph Richardson and John Gielgud, dominated the British stage of the mid-20th century. ...read more.

Obviously most voting here are young. This man should be at least in the top 10 if not #1. And, he's listed twice! He was the GREATEST actor, not to mention very hot!

Number one, Adam sandler shouldn't be on list for actors.

One of the best.

Lawrence Olivier is the single greatest actor of all time. He's a classically tranined Shakespearean actor and he always delivers classical performances. Known for some of the greatest movies like Hamlet, Henry V, Khartoumn, In the shoes of the fisherman, That Hamilton woman, Wuthering Heights, Spartacus, Rebecca, The boys from Brazil, Richard lll, and Pride and Prejudice just to name a few!

86 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.

88 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.

Akshay kumar is best all time

90 Steve Carell Steve Carell

Very funny in the party of Office, he went to a party and insult peopl, even though people insult him.

The office he is hilarious, the big short he was incredible. Deserves to be higher. (Nicolas cage is higher then steve? )

He's able to play a funny role, like Michael Scott, but in Crazy Stupid Love you can feel all of the emotion he shows.

REALLY NICOLAS CAGE HIGHER THE ROCK STEVE IS AWESOME

91 Charlton Heston Charlton Heston

Half of the people who vote on this site don't even know who Charlton Heston is, or may not be old enough to remember him....what a JOKE..a actor for all time... Ben Hur, El Cid, the original Planet of the Apes movies, and a whole list of other wonderful and critically acclaimed performances..how can HE not be on this list..I said it before...what a JOKE!!!

The late, great Charlton Heston. One of the best actors of his generation. You're so right. Younger movie goers have no idea of quality acting. - ageistewart

BEST ACTOR EVER! The Omega Man, Ben Hur. This must be a joke right? I mean Brad Pitt in front of Charlton Heston?!

Chalton at 163? He should be No. 1! Such a noble actor! So good looking, so talented! guys, try watching great movies like Ben Hur, Ten Commandments, etc. I pity the young generation who did not have the chance to watch this great man in action.

92 Logan Lerman Logan Lerman

HE IS A AWESOME ACTOR NOBODY BETTER NOT DOUBT THAT

He's good looking but he took part in the butchering of the Percy Jackson series so👎

93 Matt LeBlanc Matt LeBlanc Matthew Steven LeBlanc (born July 25, 1967) is an American actor, television host, and producer. He attracted international recognition and acclaim for his portrayal of Joey Tribbiani on the popular NBC sitcom Friends, which ran from 1994 to 2004; He currently stars as Adam Burns on the TV show Man ...read more.

OK, let me explain this one: You have to be a very talented actor to play Joey, Joey is a dim-witted womanising idiot in Friends and Joey. Matt LeBlanc is the complete opposite, he is an intelligent, happily married man, who is quite quiet and now hosts Top Gear.

Joey come on man

Come on LeBlanc

Great actor!

94 Chris Pratt Chris Pratt Christopher Michael "Chris" Pratt is an American actor. He came to prominence from his television roles, including Bright Abbott in Everwood and Andy Dwyer in the NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation.

He just became my favorite Actor after he was in Guardians of the galaxy, I actually didn't know about him before that, he's an awesome actor but why so low?!

He did an amazing performance in all his movies like the Lego movie, Jurassic world and guardians of the galaxy. His performance just WOW

Hey look it's Andy from parks and rec! But in all seriousness this guy was really good as all of his roles (in the movies I've seen him in) - Phillip873

Why is he so low he is in so many major films, he is funny but he can be serious, he's is nothing short of an amazing actor

95 Sir Ben Kingsley Sir Ben Kingsley Sir Ben Kingsley is an English actor. In a career spanning over 40 years, he has won an Oscar, Grammy, BAFTA, two Golden Globes and a Screen Actors Guild Award.

The only one who could play Ghandi, and hes british. Also check out "Sexy Beast" he is ruthlessly brutal.

He really should be higher than 88th. And for crying out loud, above Adam Sandler! - PositronWildhawk

He's best in HUGO

96 Andy Serkis Andy Serkis

True talent, can do almost everything. Andy is also an amazing director seeing as how he directed certain scenes from The Hobbit.

While probably showing his face less than every other actor he gave CGI animated charakters a depth you never could have imagined.

He's got some of the best performances of all time, like smeagol/gollum in The Two Towers and Ceaser in Planet of the Apes.

97 Chris Pine Chris Pine

He appeared in numerous movies such as Just My Luck and Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement. - shelleyduvallfan10

I absolutely LOVE Chris Pine! J.J. Abrams is a GENIUS for casting him for the role of Jim Kirk! Not to mention, he's quite a catch ;).

98 Jake Gyllenhaal Jake Gyllenhaal Jacob Benjamin "Jake" Gyllenhaal (born December 19, 1980) is an American actor, known for his work in films like "Donnie Darko", "Brokeback Mountain", "Prisoners" and "Nightcrawler". He is the son of director Stephen Gyllenhaal and producer/screenwriter Naomi Foner. Jake and his sister Maggie have been ...read more.

Jake gyllenhaal is the most versatile, brilliant actor I have ever seen, he can play literally any character to perfection. Be it creepy, funny, intense the list goes on. And then, as I scroll and scroll, desperately trying to find this amazing actor, I come across Ashton kutcher, above him, who can only play one role, and has never made a good movie in his life. Just unbelievable. Gyllenhaal is a legendary actor, and destined to be one of the greats

He is really awesome. I think he is one of the best actors ever: Donnie Darko, Jarhead, the good girl, the day after tomorrow (sorry, haven't seen the whole Brokeback Mountain movie) - he convinces! - Cranberry20

The best young actor around today. His acting skills are incredible for his young age.

He is one of greatest actor.Just watch his movies like nightcrawler, source code, zodiac, brockback mountain, prisnor...etc

99 Ralph Fiennes Ralph Fiennes Ralph Nathaniel Twisleton-Wykeham-Fiennes (born 22 December 1962) is an English actor, director and producer. A noted Shakespeare interpreter, he first achieved success onstage at the Royal National Theatre. ...read more.

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
