Top Ten Greatest Actors

The Contenders: Page 6

101 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...

102 Gene Hackman Gene Hackman

He. Deserves a lifetime award... This actor played so many outstanding roles.. He is a natural...

This guy is too low down on this list. Should've been much higher. - gaali121

Wow don't anybody else feel this is just an insult to him he's great

After watching his role in unforgiven, he's in my top 10 actors. Philip Hoffman as my favorite. R.i.p. Hoffman.

103 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

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!

106 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.

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!

NUMBER1

108 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.

Watch John wick 2. No actor can pull those scenes off except for him... and chuck norris... - TALGames

109 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

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

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.

Everything he does, he does so very well!

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 Cary Grant Cary Grant Cary Grant, born Archibald Alexander Leach (January 18, 1904 – November 29, 1986) was a British-American actor, known as one of classic Hollywood's definitive leading men. He began a career in Hollywood in the early 1930s, and became known for his transatlantic accent, debonair demeanor, and light-hearted ...read more.

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...

Cary Grant was the greatest. All of the other baboons and gorillas get lost.

116 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

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

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.

This guy is so great and he does NOT get enough credit!

120 Elijah Wood Elijah Wood

He can act. But he is some what dramatic in some movies. He is also cute. He can definitely play the act in Lord of The Rings as Frodo. He also played a voice actor in Happy Feet 2, He played Mumble (Father Penguin) His voice is sweet. I think he was a very good actor and that he should be higher than number 168. I believe he was very good, but no one remembers him a whole lot. He played in a bunch of movies but is best known for Frodo in The Lord Of The Rings.

He can cry, laugh, or rebel. He can be a character and portray it beautifully. He is number one!

In Lord of the RIngs, he is very good. I like him a lot. - amyhenry

Come on he should at least be in the top 50. he's frodo in the lord of the rings!
