Top Ten Greatest Actors

The Contenders: Page 5

81 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

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 GAY

84 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!

85 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.

87 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

89 Michael Caine Michael Caine

One of the greatest actors ever. Can play men of intelligence or simply cunning ones, good men or evil ones.

To this day, Michael Caine has not given a bad performance in a film. If Michael Caine gave a bad performance in a film the world would burn.

Amazing how Michael Caine is not higher on this list! Correction, SIR Michael Caine. Sleuth, The Dark Night, The Ipcress File, The Italian Job, The Man Who Would Be King? I must say, he is one of the best actors ever, and has managed to be nominated for an Oscar at least once every decade since 1960! The only other person to do that is Jack Nicholsen.

SICK ACTOR

90 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.

91 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👎

92 Matt LeBlanc Matt LeBlanc

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!

93 Michael J. Fox Michael J. Fox Michael Andrew Fox, known as Michael J. Fox, is a Canadian-American actor, author, producer, and activist.

WHAT? WHAT? HOW IS HE NOT #1?

Michael J Fox is so talented. He has had such a varying list of characters: young republican, teenage rocker, irritating actor, concierge, hotshot doctor, deputy mayor, he's even played a character who can see ghosts. His abilities are so varied and he's great. He's also so inspiring. Can you imagine having Parkinson's and having to cover it up for as long as he did? You have to be a great actor to do that. The ONLY actor on this list who is actually a quality actor is David Duchovny, and maybe Tom Hanks. Back to the Future is the best trilogy of all time in my opinion, and Family Ties one of the best sitcoms ever made.

By the way, for everyone who didn't know, Cars is an EXACT copy of Doc Hollywood. So screw you Disney.

Why the heck is he not number 1? He is clearly the best actor. I mean, come on guys get some taste! Have you not seen Family Ties or Back to the Future?

He had been in Family Ties, Stuart Little, Stuart Little 2 and Atlantis: The Lost Empire - shelleyduvallfan10

WHAT?! WHAT?!
EXCUUUSE ME but he is NOT number ONE HUNDRED ELEVEN. He is one of the best actors I have ever seen! He can play any character and convince a whole audience that that's his real personality! That's how good he is! I could not imagine anyone else doing a better job for any of his roles, including my favourites as Alex P. Keaton, and Marty Mcfly

94 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

95 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

So, you guys think Adam driver is "hot" looking and very funny? Well, THIS guy is twice as funny as Adam driver will ever be. Plus he got me absolutely crazy over velociraptors...

96 James Stewart James Stewart James Stewart (May 20, 1908 - July 2, 1997) is an American actor, who is widely considered to be one of the greatest actors. He is known for his roles in Rear Window, It's a Wonderful Life, Vertigo, and Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.

Um this list is wrong why is he at the bottom he is literally amazing. The youth of America is shameful talk to me when you've watched real quality movies with real quality actors like him. Hitchcock chose this man for most of his films...which by the way were amazing...so obviously there was something he saw in Jimmy here. By the way Academy Awards I will never forgive you for these injustices to cinema. I am a LEGITIMATE filmwatcher (unlike many teenagers these days) Also I am 13...see? Teens aren't completely lost. - Wrinkly rat.

Harvey, Mr. Smith Goes To Washington, Rope and The Philadelphia Story. Those are not only four great movies, but each of them depicts James Stewart in a completely different role, but giving an excellent and believable performance in all of them. - Martin_Canine

Great actor great actor. If he doesn't get into the top 20 something is wrong one of the all time favorite actor

I'd like to see pacino, deniro, hanks, depp, all those actors to look at Stewart, Grant, Bogart, Olivier

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

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

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
