122 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

124 Sean Connery Sean Connery Sir Thomas Sean Connery is a retired Scottish actor and producer who has won an Academy Award, two BAFTA Awards and three Golden Globes.

Sean should definitely be higher on the list! Not only the Best Bond, he also is a powerful performer! The Untouchables, The Rock, Medicine Man, Finding Forrester just to name a few!

Understated, underrated. So natural that people don't realize he's acting. Few others could have done his roles as well - Billyv

What! 90? The untouchables, the hunt for the red October and the original bond gets him 90? Top 20 at least

He is one of the best of the best a true actor

125 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!

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!

I want him in top 20

127 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.

128 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

Incomparable and remarkable. No doubt in the top ten.

Another actor who should be in the top 20

129 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.

130 Gerard Butler Gerard Butler

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

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

131 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!

great in caligula even if it was a short part but there are no small parts just small actors. - lolabunny145

I have rarely ever seen acting with so much passion as him in Lawrence of Arabia.

One of the greatest actors of all time

Should definitely be in the top 10!

134 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.

135 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.

136 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.

137 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 Montgomery Clift Montgomery Clift Edward Montgomery "Monty" Clift (October 17, 1920 – July 23, 1966) was an American film and stage actor. The New York Times’ obituary of Clift noted his portrayal of "moody, sensitive young men".

140 Toshirō Mifune

I;ll bet that no-one voting here has ever seen a Japanese movie. This guy is great, and I've seen seven or eight of his movies.

Toshiro Mifune his absolutely wild and virile. His characters have a great power of expression : expressive gestures, expressive look.

Too bad only dedicated filmbuffs know about this guy, definitely the GOAT.

This ruggedly handsome Japanese actor has been excellent and cool in a wide variety of roles, usually displaying that nice body of his. He played the emotional, larger than life, tragic, lovable Kikuchiyo in 'Seven Samurai', the grotesque yet sometimes oddly sexy bandit Tajomaru in 'Rashomon', powerless villain Taketoki Washizu in 'Throne of Blood', the brilliant but lazy samurai Sanjuro, and showed off his nice legs in shorts in 'The Hidden Fortress'. And much, much more.
