The Contenders: Page 8

141 Peter O'Toole Peter O'Toole

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!

142 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

143 James McAvoy James McAvoy James McAvoy is a Scottish actor. He made his acting début as a teen in 1995's The Near Room and continued to make mostly television appearances until 2003, when his feature film career began and he continued to work in both areas from then on.

I was debating who to vote for (Robert Downy Jr, Alan Rickman, Johnny Depp or Gary Oldman) when I thought to myself what was the last movie you watched and actually thought Yeah that's believable acting. And then it hit me Cillian Murphy in The Wind That Shakes The Barley. If you haven't seen it, watch it.
So here I was looking for Cillian Murphy when I spotted my favourite actors name: James McAvoy. To be honest I had thought of him but then thought no, is he really the best actor ever? Then I saw the name and though ok yeah he's pretty amazing. Let's think, Penelope, Shameless and Inside I'm Dancing to name but a few. These roles couldn't be more diverse. To answer my own question, yes he really is the best actor ever (well in my opinion ever anyway).
If you haven't seen him act, do it, like now, seriously. :P Really though he's amazing.

You've seen him at Atonement, The Last King of Scotland, Becoming Jane, Wanted, X-men First Class... Need I say more! Please vote for James!

I love him very much! And I think that he's the most talented actor!

What's wrong with you people? Go watch some of his movies he's absolutely amazing
This guy can act! The only actor comparable to him is Michael Fassbender
This dude really becomes the character he plays and is one of the best at showing emotions! VOTE PEOPLE!

144 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!

145 Rupert Grint Rupert Grint Rupert Alexander Lloyd Grint is an English actor who rose to prominence playing Ron Weasley, one of the three main characters in the Harry Potter film series.

Perfect actor for Ron, but totally not sexy

The most funny..
The most amazing
The most charming
I can't believe that this is the spot which people think he is deserving!
He can act very well
And rupert grint or else
RONALD WEASLEY RULES MY HEART!

Such a cute and funny character in harry potter and also a good actor.

Rupurt Grint is such a funny character, One on Daniels best friends in Harry Potter movies/books. KEEP IT UP. P.S make sure to look after pigwigon

146 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.

149 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.

150 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

152 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.

153 Chiranjeevi Chiranjeevi

He is the Megastar of Telugu film industry.
He along with Rajinikanth and Kamal Hassan have the largest fan base in South India.
-

The art of being yourself at your best is the art of unfolding your personality into the man you want to be. Be gentle with yourself, learn to love yourself, to forgive yourself, for only as we have the right attitude toward ourselves can we have the right attitude toward others... All this I can see in CHIRANJEEVI sir... A Legend forever...

The almighty megastar is the only one who made cinema so popular in the south Indian cinema. He came, he conquered and he ruled the industry. A good, loyal and a humble person. Problem with people at andhra is the caste issue which is what makes them fight degrading the best hero.. Pity their baseless mud slinging on him, still he remains the GOD OF Indian CINEMA...

He is a not an actor he is a God of Indian film's only megastar all round hero no others this is true

155 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 😂

156 Robert Carlyle Robert Carlyle

How is Jared Leto on this list, and near the top, no less... But there is no mention of Robert Carlyle... Or even Gary Oldman... These two are probably the most diverse and exceptional actors EVER, along with Johnny Depp of course.

Extreemly underrated actor who is moving whenever you watch him he seriously needs more exposure one of the best actors I've ever seen. Someone you actually notice for their acting ability when their on screen.

He played a great bad guy in James Bond.

It's a crime that he is below people like Daniel Radcliff, Robert Carlyle acts the majority of people mentioned out of the water

157 Chris Pratt Chris Pratt Christopher Michael "Chris" Pratt is an American actor. He came to prominence from his television roles, including Bright Abbott in Everwood and Andy Dwyer in the NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation.

He just became my favorite Actor after he was in Guardians of the galaxy, I actually didn't know about him before that, he's an awesome actor but why so low?!

He did an amazing performance in all his movies like the Lego movie, Jurassic world and guardians of the galaxy. His performance just WOW

155 still means this list is demented, but it is still better than 244

Should have a higher spot on the list

158 Robert Shaw Robert Shaw

His last name is my first name so I guess he's a good actor.

Well, using your logic, the guy down the street from me has my first name as his last name so I guess he's a good cactus. That's your thinking. - BKAllmighty

159 Zach Galifianakis Zach Galifianakis

This guy is really funny! I really Like his acting and think he's cool. 10/10 - AlphaQ
