Top Ten Greatest Actors

The Contenders: Page 6

101 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

102 Paul Walker Paul Walker Paul William Walker IV was an American actor . Walker began his career guest-starring in several television shows such as The Young and the Restless and Touched by an Angel .

Amazing actor should be in top 20 love the guy RIP

Paul was so amazing! So sad that his life had to be cut so short. But he is in a good place now. Paul Walker should be in at least the top 50 not 138! VOTE PEOPLE VOTE!

Superb action and great skills and has a sharp nose like a pointed heel.

Paul Walker will always be the legend of Fast and Furious!

103 Michael Caine Michael Caine

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

Why on Earth is he so low! He is such a unique actor, being able to pull of so many characters and NEVER failing a performance. Should be in the top 10!

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.

I think tom hanks is the best, but Michael Caine 103rd automatically makes this whole list trash. he is possibly the best british actor of all time, easily top 20 minimum

104 Ian Somerhalder Ian Somerhalder Ian Joseph Somerhalder is an American actor, model and director. He is known for playing Boone Carlyle in the TV drama Lost and Damon Salvatore in The CW's supernatural drama The Vampire Diaries.

Ian should be in the top 10. He does exceptionally great work acting in the Vampire Diaries!

VOTE PEOPLE! IAN IS SO GOOD IN TVD! He should be at the least, before top 40! HE IS SO AMAZING! And hot :D

I'm crying in laughter while reading this. Ian Somerhalder? The only time I EVER heard of this guy was in the first like 5 episodes of LOST! (A show that no one knows about that ended almost 5 years ago)

This Angle oozes hotness VOTE EVERYONE he deserves a place among the top 10s.

105 Nicolas Cage Nicolas Cage Nicolas Kim Coppola, known professionally as Nicolas Cage, is an American actor and producer. He is well known for his roles in Raising Arizona, Moonstruck, Vampire's Kiss, Wild at Heart, Honeymoon in Vegas, Red Rock West, Leaving Las Vegas, The Rock, Con Air, Face/Off, City of Angels, 8MM, Bringing ...read more.

Should be in number 1 position in my opinion. Incredibly talented and versatile actor. He puts his heart and soul into every character he portrays. I admire this guy so much, not to mention he is absolutely gorgeous. Where would we be without movies such as Raising Arizona, Leaving Las Vegas, Lord of War, The Rock, Face off, Adaptation, Matchstick men, just too many to list! I hope he continues making movies for a long time yet.

One the most versatile actors of all time johnny depp is versatile but no where near as much as nicolas cage who is unafraid of any role although some times in the wrong movie he makes the film that much more watchable

A classic actor. The expressions on his face truly reveal his great acting skills. He has made phenomenal contributions in Movies like Knowing, Con Air, National Treasure, etc. Nicolas just rocks!

One of the greatest actors out there. Why is he so far down

106 Keanu Reeves Keanu Reeves

Keanu Reeves, despite his sad life, will always be as somebody who knows how
To care and love truly. He just doesn't accept movies for the heck of it but
Chooses the best script for him. HE IS THE ONE!

Best as Neo I love all his roles and movies, He has that New Born Child look every time.

Quite good acting and good looking, teehee. He deserves to be higher up on this list.

An excellent star

107 James Dean James Dean James Byron Dean was an American actor. He is a cultural icon of teenage disillusionment and social estrangement, as expressed in the title of his most celebrated film, Rebel Without a Cause, in which he starred as troubled teenager Jim Stark.

James Dean was too great for this world. It wasn't just about acting; it was about feeling and living every line he pronounced. Maybe he was a genius. Maybe he was broken, yet he still managed to share a great deal of love and passion with others. I miss him so much and I wish people like this still existed. Rest In Peace angel

The only actor in the world that I look up to... I LOVE him to death, I could watch his movies a million times and never get bored.

The original, the one and only REBEL the world has known and will ever know

The handsomest, most talented actor who ever walked the earth. I totally adore him!

What! He's way to low! I mean how is he below Chris Pines, Adam Sandler, and Chris Hemsworth! He was the epitome of acting in his time. It's sad that he had to have such a short career. That guy could have gone on to do great things. They sad imitation is the sinserest form of flattery. Maybe that's why I am asking for a red jacket for my birthday 🎉🎊🎈. I am teased by a lot of the other girls at school who think that it's so weird for me to have a crush on someone like James Dean. But her it's not my fault they don't know what's good 😊. My hero. My idol

108 Vin Diesel Vin Diesel Mark Sinclair, better known by his stage name Vin Diesel, is an American actor, producer, director, and screenwriter.

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

The fast and furious are good movies

Awesome actor of Hollywood

109 James Stewart James Stewart James Stewart (May 20, 1908 - July 2, 1997) was an American movie star, who is widely considered to be one of the greatest actors of all time. He is best remembered for his roles in Rear Window, It's a Wonderful Life, Vertigo, and Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. Stewart was known for his distinctive drawl ...read more.

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

WAAAYY too low! This is the guy who gave us amazing performances in Hitchcock's best films, It's a Wonderful Life, and many others. He has such a wide range of characters he portrays with different personalities, and yet he manages to make each of those roles real and relatable. A true American film legend.

Something about him annoys me to no end. I really want to like his movies, but every time he comes on screen I just feel irritated.

114 Clark Gable Clark Gable William Clark Gable (February 1, 1901 – November 16, 1960) was an American film actor, often referred to as "The King of Hollywood" or just simply as "The King". Gable is considered one of the most consistent box-office performers in history, appearing on Quigley Publishing's annual Top Ten Money ...read more.

The man could kill woman with his seductive smile, charming but shrewd and clever. The song of Heart, 'If looks could kill' is only applicable for him I guess. Whoa, what a man made! In GWTW he looked so charming with the moustache!
God must be praised for making him.

Frankly my dear, he is awesome

Yes he was wonderful! Gone with the Wind and Mogambo, two of his films that I watched, truly the greatest actor of his day!

Gable was awesome...you need to redo this garbage list

115 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

116 Samuel L. Jackson Samuel L. Jackson Samuel Leroy Jackson is an American actor and film producer. He achieved prominence and critical acclaim in the early 1990s with films such as Jungle Fever, Patriot Games, Amos & Andrew, True Romance, Jurassic Park and his collaborations with director Quentin Tarantino including Pulp Fiction, Jackie ...read more.

He is an awesome actor!

Already on the list - PeeledBanana

117 David Spade David Spade

How come no one has even added this hilarious man on the list. His best stuff has always been with Chris Farley but everything he has done whether it was a movie, a T.V. show, it has always made me laugh and smile. Vote this amazing guy up. Come on Tommy Boy, Black Sheep, Grown Ups, VOTE!

Ever seen joe dirt watch the first few minutes and you'll see why he should be in at least the top ten

David Spade also appeared in The Emperor's New Groove (as Emperor Kuzco/Llama Kuzco). - playstationfan66

118 Tim Curry Tim Curry Timothy James "Tim" Curry is an English actor, voice actor and singer, known for his work in a diverse range of theatre, film and television productions, often portraying villainous roles or character parts.

Tim curry is great but he is NOT GOD

Rocky Horror Picture Show!

Tim curry is God

Tim Curry IS GOD

119 Geoffrey Rush Geoffrey Rush

Another one who lurks in the shadows. When considering "the best actor ever, " most lists will have the typical, pacino, de niro, nicholson, penn; but Rush is one of the greats. I remember the first movie I eve saw with him, Shine. I was young and did not quite understand the film but I remember thinking "wow, this guy. " That attitude has not changed. Excellent actor. #1- David, Shine #2- Lionel, The King's Speech - zacenroe86

How can Geoffrey Rush not be in this list? He is one of the best actors I have ever known! He did a great role in the movie "The King's Speech. I like his face, the way he looks at people and also maybe his voice.

Was so good in Pirates of the Caribbean that they had to turn him into a hero! The best scenes in Pirates, to me, were the ones between Depp and Rush.

I like his voice in pirates of the carribean

120 Bradley Cooper Bradley Cooper Bradley Charles Cooper is an American actor and producer. He has been nominated for four Academy Awards, three for acting and one for producing, and one Tony Award.

Did anyone see Joy? His acting just keeps getting better and better. Plus he is so easy on the eyes. (Hot) Bradley Cooper was the only actor worth watching in that movie! Why does he keep getting paired with Jennifer Lawrence? She is nowhere near his league in terms of talent or looks! I agree that he should be in the top 20. Maybe even the top ten.

Underrated on this list Nicholas cage shouldn't be on here this guy is better

Bradley Cooper in so many Oscar no need movies, you place him 148...get outta here

He is the one of the best actor in the world.
