Top Ten Greatest Actors

The Contenders: Page 8

141 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.

142 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.

143 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.

144 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

145 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

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

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

148 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

What! are you serious!
Tom Hardy 209! that must be a joke!
one of the best actors this century and ever, pure talent,great movies and outstanding performances.
Top 10 no doubt about it

149 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!

150 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.

151 Taylor Lautner Taylor Lautner

Why was he not put on this list? He is the best actor out of the Twilight Series, anyone that disagrees, good luck in the looney bin. - Ally131

"Best actor in the twilight series"- Ally131, that's not saying much because every actor in those movies are stale. This ugly guy is not a good actor. - nickisawesome

great actor and absolutely good-looking ;)

Please keep it up dear. I think you are great but lttle bit practice is necessary.

Come on should be top 50

152 Daniel Craig Daniel Craig Daniel Wroughton Craig is an English actor. Craig trained at the National Youth Theatre and graduated from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 1991, before beginning his career on stage.

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.

His role as a storm trooper was outstanding. Mind blowing 😂

He can act very well
And rupert grint or else
RONALD WEASLEY RULES MY HEART!

154 Michael Keaton Michael Keaton

Batman, Beetlejuice, Multiplicity, Toy Story 3, hello? Why isn't Keaton on this list? Ok, maybe he's not one of the best actors, but he's just one of the funniest guys I know and he's a totally badass anyway and as it seems also a very kind guy in private.

His performances in Batman and Birdman were incredible, thank god he's on this list.

His performance in Birdman is my favorite performance by a lead actor in ANY movie.

A lot better than everybody thinks

155 Andy Serkis Andy Serkis

True talent, can do almost everything. Andy is also an amazing director seeing as how he directed certain scenes from The Hobbit.

While probably showing his face less than every other actor he gave CGI animated charakters a depth you never could have imagined.

He's got some of the best performances of all time, like smeagol/gollum in The Two Towers and Ceaser in Planet of the Apes.

156 Vijay Vijay

Great actor

157 Charlton Heston Charlton Heston

Half of the people who vote on this site don't even know who Charlton Heston is, or may not be old enough to remember him....what a JOKE..a actor for all time... Ben Hur, El Cid, the original Planet of the Apes movies, and a whole list of other wonderful and critically acclaimed performances..how can HE not be on this list..I said it before...what a JOKE!!!

The late, great Charlton Heston. One of the best actors of his generation. You're so right. Younger movie goers have no idea of quality acting. - ageistewart

BEST ACTOR EVER! The Omega Man, Ben Hur. This must be a joke right? I mean Brad Pitt in front of Charlton Heston?!

Chalton at 163? He should be No. 1! Such a noble actor! So good looking, so talented! guys, try watching great movies like Ben Hur, Ten Commandments, etc. I pity the young generation who did not have the chance to watch this great man in action.
