122 Gerard Butler Gerard Butler

Gerard Butler should never be below David Spade, in fact no one should

Best actor anywhere!

Awesome actor

He is one of the best actors. He might not do box office block busters but his acting is great,should be in top 50

123 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.

No 100, come on?! He should be number 1!

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

124 Ashton Kutcher Ashton Kutcher

Too overrated. More a silly entertainer than an actor if you ask me. Not very convincing in serious roles and a total loss in comedy where he only can play a idiot or the bad acting not so funny type. Should be rightfully belong in the worst actors list instead this list.

He's an untalented idiot.

Right below Henry Fonda? Yeah, right.

excellent - yasimovi

125 Guy Pearce Guy Pearce

Can't believe he is not here! Everything he is in is brilliant and he is THE most underrated actor ever! Has everyone forgotten LA Confidential; Memento et al?

Very good actor, should be higher on the list.

126 Sivaji Ganesan Sivaji Ganesan

He is the dictionary of Tamil Cinema and one of the earliest method actors in India.
He is the first Indian actor to get an International Award.
He is the first actor in India to star in many languages, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Hindi, Malayalam and Bengali.
-

Its shocking to see how his name is not in the list. He is an encyclopedia of acting. The great Kamal Haasan calls him his guru. Revered and respect across India and South Asia. He was the first Indian to win international awards & was acknowledged for acting prowess from none less than Marlon Brando. How is he missing from the list. He should be the Number one. Goodness gracious how come Johnny Depp, Dicaprio & Shahrukh Khan are scored above Brando, Al Pacino, De Niro, Morgan Freeman, Denzel Washington, Kamal Hassan, Naseeruddin Shah & Amitabh Bachchan.

He is the first Indian actor received chevalier award. Many actors come and act. But like sivaji no one can act. He is only actor acted so many varieties of roles in the world. He is only Indian actor received best actor award in Asia-afro film festival

He should be the number 1...no doubt...all others are nothing infront of him...i think voting is always by popularity only..not by talent...sivaji sir..u r the best...the rest are not even close to u.

127 Tom Hardy Tom Hardy

Best Actor right now! Watch Bronson, Warrior, Locke, The Drop, and Lawless to see masterful first class acting. can't wait for Mad Max, Legend, and Revenant.

Watch Locke for proof he's a great actor. Not many people can make talking on the phone and driving a car interesting for am hour and a half.

I would have voted Dicaprio, but Hardy at 195 when he deserves to be in the top ten is an injustice worthy of using a vote on

How? Should be top ten at least!

128 Christopher Lee Christopher Lee Sir Christopher Frank Carandini Lee (1922-2015) was an English actor, singer, and author. He was best known for his villainous roles in films such as Dracula in the Hammer Horror films, Francisco Scaramanga in the James Bond film The Man with the Golden Gun, Saruman in the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit ...read more.

This man should be in the top three... One could not list all his great movies on both hands and feet... Also, the BEST Dracula there has ever been. He also made a heavy metal Christmas album at 90 years old.. How cool is that...

Why so low?! He's like the most experienced actor ever! He's really the best! Especially in his role as Saruman! The power of his voice is really unbelievable! He played in so much movies! I lie when I say I have seen them all but I have seen many and they were al really good!

Place 239? Really, people? He's number 1 in my opinion, and should at least be in the top ten.

The dude had a heavy metal album in his 90s. He's a total BA.

129 Tim Robbins Tim Robbins

I can't help thinking about "The Shawshank Redemption " it's been voted to the best movie ever (imdb) Why? because of Tim Robbins. He is such a great actor especially in this movie. And not to forget the co. actor Morgan Freeman, he is GOD himself!
And of course "Nothing to loose" lol.

To find him this low just proves how underrated this brilliant actor is.

Best actor. So intelligent.

130 John Cusack John Cusack

The best Actor 1408 was a great movie and 2012 don't you forget the con air and the new movie with cage ""the frozen ground" what about the number situation he is absolutely fabulous - ToptensA

His sister, Joan Cusack, also appeared in Say Anything, Ice Princess, Runaway Bride and Toy Story (2 & 3). John also appeared in Anastasia (1997) alongside Meg Ryan. - playstationfan66

Sixteen Candles, Say Anthing, Must Like Dogs, High Fidelity...

1408 being john malcovich grace is gone identity

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.

Stunning brilliant
Ultimately one of the most talented actors around

Terrible actor. What idiot put him on this list. You gotta be kidding.

132 Joe Pesci Joe Pesci Joseph Frank "Joe" Pesci is an Italian-American actor, comedian and musician, known for playing tough, volatile characters, in a variety of genres.

Casino, Goodfellas, Home Alone 1 & 2... Say no more.

197!?!? That's a sin. He is Top 25 easily.

I would put him in my top 20

133 Rajesh Khanna

Rajesh khanna definitely greatest actor all time not in India but all over the world

No one can act the way he actead in Amar Prem, Anand, Bawarchi, Kati Patang etc. Even BigB was nothing in front of him. The most skilled, versatile actor. The first and the original superstar of Indian Cinema. No actor has recieved as many no. of awards as he had.

134 Richard Burton Richard Burton

Watch "Becket" or "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? " or "Night of the Iguana" and then compare... Burton belongs in the top ten! - TaylorBurton

Another actor who should be in the top 20

Incomparable and remarkable. No doubt in the top ten.

135 Jamie Foxx Jamie Foxx Eric Marlon Bishop, known professionally by his stage name Jamie Foxx, is an American actor, singer, songwriter and comedian.

I love him as electro and will stacks

Great actor

he's cool

Not a big fan, but he delivers in his movies...he is a really good actor..what a disgrace to be so low

136 John Simm John Simm

No One every really realises the brilliance of John Simm I mean absolutey fantastic T.V. actor. He was great in 24 hour party people. His Role in Doctor Who shows he can just about act as anything and on Life On Mars He was absouloutley outstanding. He is better at acting on T.V. rather than film but he should be appreciated more than he is #Vote Saxon - MichaelMadden2001

138 John Wayne John Wayne Marion Mitchell Morrison, known professionally as John Wayne and nicknamed Duke, was an American actor, director, and producer.

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. - olliv

The most beautiful actor that I have ever seen..

One of the greatest actors of all time.

Truly the original actors actor. those who haven't seen his movies should watch it before commenting

140 Robert Redford Robert Redford Charles Robert Redford Jr., known professionally as Robert Redford, is an American actor, director, producer, businessman, environmentalist, and philanthropist.

Are you kidding me? Robert Redford should at least be in the top ten. He has remained a Hollywood icon for decades and continues to shine as a director. Having been in a wide variety of movies and playing a wide variety of characters he has shown versatility as well as charisma. He was and remains as the best Hollywood has to offer. If you don't believe me, spend time with just one of his movies. You'll be hooked.

He did make the best movie ever along with Paul Newman.

Maybe just my age but growing up dreaming of Mr Redford and to this day, he remains the sexiest actor in my opinion.

145th, WOW!
