Top Ten Greatest Actors
The Contenders: Page 6
Extraordinary. He was not given credit for his acting ability even when he was in the Top Ten box office draws for 22 straight years. Looking over this list I see the demographics are severely weighted toward the younger generation. I would invite you to watch Mr. Wayne in Island in the Sky, The Searchers, The Shootist, or The Cowboys and watch some of the true subtleties of acting genius. Also, look for titles with the following actors; Gary Cooper, James Stewart, Charles Laughton, Cary Grant, Clark Gable, Paul Newman, Gregory Peck, Burt Lancaster, and especially, Walter Pidgeon (Mrs Miniver, How Green was My Valley, Manhunt). Please enjoy.
If I was ever stranded on an island I would want to be with him, I think
He was a lot in real life as he was in the movies, tall, handsome, kind &
200% male there will never be another John Wayne, EVER!
He is the greatest and my favorite. He made over 200 movies. - moose4life19
Zac Efron is above John Wayne. I've officially lost faith in humanity. - ollivV 21 Comments
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? )
Really, Ben Stiller above Steve Carell? REALLY?!?!?!?V 4 Comments
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.V 4 Comments
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👎
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.
I mean, why is he not number one? The kind of stuff he's pulled of in Supernatural, heights of perfomance...V 116 Comments
He. Deserves a lifetime award... This actor played so many outstanding roles.. He is a natural...
Wow don't anybody else feel this is just an insult to him he's great
This guy is too low down on this list. Should've been much higher. - gaali121
He's actually pretty amazing.V 3 Comments
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
#107!? He is a legendary actor abd should be #1V 18 Comments
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...etcV 13 Comments
Come on jack black must be number 1 he makes the funnies movies ever like
Kung fu panda 2
Kung fu panda 1
The school of rock. Etc.
Awesome! Anyone knows Jack dominates the movie field obviously.
Jack black in nacho libre and school of rock he was SO FUNNY HE SHOULD BE TOP 5
How is jack black not higher up on this list? He is hilarious and at least I think he's a HUGE inspiration to kids. School of rock, all kung fu panda movies, and gullevers travels, all of them great movies - Ihategwyn310V 14 Comments
I saw one of my favorite movies with him in it, he was great at it, the movie was Hollow Man, I thought that movie was awesome.
Ultimately one of the most talented actors around
Terrible actor. What idiot put him on this list. You gotta be kidding.V 1 Comment
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.V 21 Comments
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!
NUMBER1V 30 Comments
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.V 5 Comments
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 earthV 6 Comments

He is a Iron man of the Indian Film industries. No one can beat him. He is the next Young super star.

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 forgotenV 1 Comment
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.
Yes he was wonderful! Gone with the Wind and Mogambo, two of his films that I watched, truly the greatest actor of his day!
His figure of Rhett in 'Gone with the wind'is unforgettable! Has caught my heart in my youth - and still holds my heart.V 2 Comments
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 ;).
