Top Ten Greatest Actors

The Contenders: Page 8

141 Sir Ian Mckellen Sir Ian Mckellen Sir Ian Murray McKellen is an English actor. He is the recipient of six Laurence Olivier Awards, a Tony Award, a Golden Globe Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award, a BIF Award, two Saturn Awards, four Drama Desk Awards and two Critics' Choice Awards.

I cannot believe how low he is on this list. Ian mckellen is a master of acting. When he is acting, you don't realise it is him. He is such a good character actor. But for example, Tom Cruise, when you watch him, you think. That's Tom Cruise. Sir Ian Mckellen is, in my eyes, the greatest character actor the world has ever seen.

234?
What's wrong with you people?
One of the BEST actors I have ever seen on any movie (may it be the lotr trilogy- in which he was brilliant, the xmen series in which he totally sold the character or the the vinci code)...

A fantastic actor and deserves to be much much higher than he is. His take on gandalf was one of the best performances I have ever seen and he was brilliant as magneto too

A wizard is never late. Nor is he early. He arrives precisely when he means to. And on this list he arrives at 141? Best actor ever.

Casino, Goodfellas, Home Alone 1 & 2... Say no more.

197!?!? That's a sin. He is Top 25 easily.

I would put him in my top 20

What a shame.he's the most underrated actor.top 20 easily!

143 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.

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!

Perfect actor for Ron, but totally not sexy

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

Be honest Rupert Grint is better than
Daniel Radcliff - Roher1977

The greatest actor of all time. How the hell is he not even in the top 100 actors of all time. He is better than tome cruise by a mile and he would smash Steven segal into the next millennia. It is a disgrace that he is so low down on this list

146 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.

147 Bruce Campbell Bruce Campbell Bruce Lorne Campbell is an American actor, voice artist, director, writer, producer, comedian and author of Scottish descent.

Listen up! You see this? This... Is my boomstick! The twelve-gauge double-barreled Remington. S-Mart's top of the line. You can find this in the sporting goods department. That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about a hundred and nine, ninety five. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart.. Bruce Campbell is the definition of a legend.

I love how in the first 2 evil dead movies, his face is absolutely drenched in blood.

The best around
Fame as Ash, Elvis, Cameo in Spiderman 1-3 and himself in "my Name is Bruce"

148 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.

149 Richard Gere Richard Gere

Never understood what all the fuss was about. But he can be very good. No really good. Loved him in "Unfaithful." - babydoll

His middle name is tiffany

He deserves a shout

150 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

151 Ryan Reynolds Ryan Reynolds Ryan Rodney Reynolds is a Canadian actor and producer. He portrayed Michael Bergen on the ABC sitcom Two Guys and a Girl, Billy Simpson in the YTV Canadian teen soap opera Hillside, as well as Marvel Comics characters Hannibal King in Blade: Trinity, Wade Wilson / Weapon XI in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, ...read more.

He is such a great actor and he is so funny and sexy! definitely one of the best of our generation - katecameron

Of course he's awesome. Hasn't anyone even SEEN Deadpool?

He is too funny and very sexy!

His performance as deadpool is awesome

152 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

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

156 Jason Segel Jason Segel
157 James Corden James Corden
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 Stephen Merchant Stephen Merchant
160 James Avery James Avery
