Top Ten Greatest Actors

The Contenders: Page 6

101 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

102 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👎

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

104 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

105 David Duchovny David Duchovny

David is great. He is the best man ever - he's REAL. I think girls can only dream about him, and boys - dream about becoming his friend. And what a great actor! Love him at Playing God, Evolution, Trust the man, the Secret, Joneses! House of D is BRILLIANT. The X Files... Should I say more? ) Can't wait for the third movie! Californication - my second love after the X files.
DAVID - THE BEST!

The only actor on this list that I like. He make me feel all kind of emotions. He is really gifted.

One of the best actor in the world. He was great with Minnie Driver in Return to Me and with Julianne Moore in Evolution and Trust the Man. I loved him in House of D and The T.V. set. He was great working with Halle Berry in Things we Lost in the Fire.
David Duchovny is brilliant in Californication. And he is one of the nicest people in the world too.

The X-Files was a good show.

106 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.

He's only 107? This guy should definitely be number 1! Just take a look at his great performance in Supernatural and Gilmore Girls!

107 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

108 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.

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 ;).

111 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!

NUMBER1

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

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)

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

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

113 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!

James dean was so cool and so simple in his acting besides he was the most beautiful man ever existed on earth

117 James Gandolfini James Gandolfini

what happened to james gandolfini. The sopranos is one of the best shows if not the best shows ever. c'mon if freddie prinze jr. is 32 we could probably squeeze his big ass in somewhere.

Let me start by saying james gandolfini is in the top 5 actors in the world just his portrail as tony soprano alone gives you that incredible insight of what a actor can do he's up there with de niro pacino denzil washington brando its a shame to lose such a great actor R.I. P James Gandolfini 1961-2013 gone but not forgoten

119 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.
