Top Ten Greatest Actors
The Contenders: Page 7
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!V 1 Comment
Naseeruddin Shah is one of the finest actors of Indian cinema.
Naseeruddin has been evolving Bollywood Industry since his debut with his supernatural acting skills.
Best negative actor of India bollywood and No -1 Actor of Art Movie's in India
He is number 1 in the worldV 3 Comments
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.
He was already a legend in his lifetime, not just as an actor but he was also a magnificent singer.V 8 Comments
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
He is a promising young star in Kollywood...
He is going to make his debut in Bollywod aswell as Tollywood...
He has the highest success rate among young actors in Tamil...
He is the handsome and cute actor in Tamil industry, no one equal the his six packs, he is a hard worker, and a social care taker and give education to poor children,
He is a Iron man of the Indian Film industries. No one can beat him. He is the next Young super star.
Otha singam the...no one can't beat himV 62 Comments
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
Tim curry is great but he is NOT GODV 2 Comments
Franco is so damn talented.. and so underrated.. I think he is one of the best actors out there right now. In his roles he carries himself with a sensibility so unlike many other actor and unlike a great handful of actors, he is versatile. He appears in a tacky show with tacky script his acting is still great!
127 Hours, Howl, Milk, Good Time Max, pineapple express, even GH
Nicest actor of all time. So damn good in 127 Hours, and so underrated, but he is a little bit like Johnny Depp I think :D
This guy is super funny and underrated - Ajkloth
James Franco is the best! He is so handsome!V 4 Comments
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!V 1 Comment
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.
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
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
The legend who went heaven to rule by his acting.V 13 Comments
Gerard Butler should never be below David Spade, in fact no one shouldV 1 Comment
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
How Is He So Low I Love All The Movies He Played In Like The Hangover 1 And 2 And American Sniper He Should Be In The Top Fifteen He He Was One Out Of Ten Actors To Win An Economy Arward I Love This Guy - TundraTopTennersV 6 Comments
He's a perfect actor for james bond and always impress.
He is by far the best James Bond there has ever been and he can play as any role he just makes the perfect actor
He wouldn't have had an opportunity to play James Bond if Sean Connery hadn't sold that character on film - Billyv
Very good actor- But I would like to see him in any other roles too. My vote for him.
He should be 5thV 5 Comments
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.
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
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
Actors like Sean Connery should be in the top 10. The best 007 ever, handsome then, and still handsome now! "I am Bond, James Bond".V 9 Comments
I love film with him. He have something interesting inside, and his eyes say something. I don't know why I love him like a actor. I know that he is very handsome but is not the reason...
This guy is a genie in a bottle. 39 yrs and look at him. If you unscrew the bottle you get acting, singing, the looks and those blue blue eyes. In Alexander I wanted to cry with him. He can do everything on que.
He is the definition of "method actor". He slept on the streets of New York City and lost 27 pounds to prepare for his part in Requiem for a Dream. He gained 62 pounds for Chapter 27. He puts EVERYTHING into his characters; and as his audience, we can't help but believe the person he is portraying. Actually, because of Harry Goldfard in Requiem, Jared Leto kept both my boyfriend and me from becoming heroin addicts in real life!
The PERFECT MAN, he is THE BEST ACTOR, I think he's charming, cheerful... he's very very handsome boy and I LOVE him. - StevenuniversefangirlV 50 Comments
