Top Ten Greatest Actors

The Contenders: Page 7

121 Clark Gable Clark Gable William Clark Gable (February 1, 1901 – November 16, 1960) was an American film actor, often referred to as "The King of Hollywood" or just simply as "The King". Gable is considered one of the most consistent box-office performers in history, appearing on Quigley Publishing's annual Top Ten Money ...read more.

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.

Frankly my dear, he is awesome

Yes he was wonderful! Gone with the Wind and Mogambo, two of his films that I watched, truly the greatest actor of his day!

Gable was awesome...you need to redo this garbage list

122 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

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.

125 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

127 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!

128 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.

129 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.

130 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.

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

132 Keanu Reeves Keanu Reeves

Keanu Reeves, despite his sad life, will always be as somebody who knows how
To care and love truly. He just doesn't accept movies for the heck of it but
Chooses the best script for him. HE IS THE ONE!

Best as Neo I love all his roles and movies, He has that New Born Child look every time.

Quite good acting and good looking, teehee. He deserves to be higher up on this list.

EXCUSE ME EXCUSE ME! Why he is down here!

133 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!

135 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.

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
