49 Raul Julia Raul Julia
50 Jon Bernthal Jon Bernthal

Plays the punisher from Daredevil, but had many other roles. He was absolutely PHENOMENAL as Shane Walsh from The Walking Dead. - errrr

51 Cillian Murphy Cillian Murphy Cillian Murphy is an Irish actor of stage and screen. Since making his debut in his home country in the late 1990s, Murphy has also become a presence in British and American cinemas noted by critics for his performances in a wide range of roles.

Utterly convincing in all his roles, which are immensely varied. So versatile. Master of accents. His dislike of celebrity culture MIGHT explain why is isn't as well known as he should be.

He is one of my favorite actors! I've only seen two of his movies( Inception, Batman Begins) but he did so well. Plus he's cute, unless he's being creepy when he needs to be lol.

The best actor of all time. He's so versatile, can play any role.

52 Jared Leto Jared Leto

People need to recognize the talent this man has. He can play any role. He is so gifted as an actor, Jared needs to be acknowledged more for his gifts. - ritamolinosell

See Mr. Nobody and just WATCH The Suicide Squad trailers.

Thank me later.

53 James Woods
54 Eddie Cibrian
55 Leonardo DiCaprio Leonardo DiCaprio
56 Ewan McGregor Ewan McGregor Ewan Gordon McGregor is a Scottish actor. His first professional role was in 1993, when he won a leading role in the Channel 4 series Lipstick on Your Collar.

Why doesn't he get more acknowledgement, his performance as Obi-Wan Kenobi is one of the best things from the star wars prequels

Anyone who's seen The Impossible knows his performance is heartbreakingly tear jerking. Why exactly was this guy not given an Oscar nomination for that?

57 Jared Padalecki Jared Padalecki Jared Tristan Padalecki is an American actor. He grew up in Texas and rose to fame in the early 2000s after appearing on the television series Gilmore Girls as well as such films as New York Minute and House of Wax.

Ridiculously good actor. Everything he does in his roles mean something and adds to his character. In Supernatural he has played so many versions of Sam Winchester and never fails to deliver

58 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. more.

I meant to say III not Episode I because he wasn't even Anakin at the moment. He really needs to be seen for his credibility and few of his good movies.

The man Hayden Christensen was good at being Anakin Skywalker at Star Wars of Episode I not II to be precise. How I wish if he had taught with better acting for roles he would have been suited.

People keep making fun of his role in Star Wars Episodes 2 and 3, and frankly, while I can still see why, it is not his fault. I mean, not even the best of the best can make that crappy dialogue seem good. When you look at how he acts when there is actually good dialogue in the script, he can portray the character surprisingly well. Hayden Christensen is a good actor.

59 Gary Cole
60 Tom Hiddleston Tom Hiddleston Thomas William Hiddleston is an English actor. He is best known for his role as Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, appearing in Thor, The Avengers, and Thor: The Dark World.

His Loki act steals the show. And he does Shakespeare too!

If an actor hasn't done Shakespeare, he sure shouldn't be on this list. I've done four Shakespeare plays and I'm not even an actor. I am frankly not that familiar with Mr. Huddleston, but seeing as how he is rated ahead of both Dustin Hoffman and Anthony Hopkins on Top Tens best actor survey, you can understand why I hesitate to call him underrated.
