Top Ten Greatest Actors

The Contenders: Page 9

161 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!

171 Hugo Weaving

Agent Smith - The best sci-fi villain this side of Darth Vader.
Red Skull - the only good portrayal of a Nazi outside of Inglorious Basterds.
V - Managed to successfully translate an Alan Moore character onto the screen. The only other person to manage this is Jackie Earle Haley (with Rorschach. )
Megatron - the most badass voice since Kevin Conroy's Batman.
Elrond - despite primarily playing villains, he pulled off the wisest character of the wisest race in LOTR.
... And he's only number 91?

172 Martin Freeman Martin Freeman

He can make every part he plays seem real. He's largely responsible for the present success of the BBC Sherlock, as without his Watson the show would be over the top. When The Hobbit comes out, the whole world will find Middle Earth believable because Martin's Bilbo will be so real that whatever he sees must seem real too.

I don't understand how people voting here evaluate acting skills. Considering relatively high position of Bruce Lee or Adam Sandler, rank of Martin Freeman or Colin Firth is a disaster :/

You rarely see such subtle und understated acting.

Whoever sees this name please vote for him he deserves a higher place

174 Hayden Christensen Hayden Christensen Hayden Christensen is a Canadian-American actor and producer. He began his career on Canadian television at the age of 13, then diversified into American television in the late 1990s. ...read more.

He is one of the best actors. In Star Wars, he was able to capture the exact emotions of Anakin Skywalker. According to me, he should be in number 10 or 11 but he is here possibly because he has been acting in seriously boring movies. I surely believe that if his talent is exposed to the world, they will say the same thing that I am saying.

He featured in the greatest love story of all time, as well as the most underrated film of all time, attack of the clones

Amazing actor! I don't care what haters say, I love him. He is fabulous.

I hate sand too.

176 Ian McKellen 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.

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

177 Aaron Eckhart

His performance in the dark knight alone is enough for me. The way he played Harvey Dent was fantastic!

A GREAT onscreen presence - PinkflASHES

178 Kevin Kline Kevin Kline

You can see he is acting, but it is ACTING.
