The Contenders: Page 3

41 James Franco James Franco James Edward Franco is an American actor and filmmaker. His first prominent acting role was the lead character Daniel Desario on the short-lived cult hit television program Freaks and Geeks.

James Franco is such a nice Actor in 127 Hours, An American Crime, Spider-Man, Howl, Milk, The Wizard of Oz... And he's underrated too much.

42 Tilda Swinton Tilda Swinton Katherine Matilda "Tilda" Swinton of Kimmerghame is an Anglo-Scottish actress, performance artist, model, and fashion muse, known for both arthouse and mainstream films.

Tilda Swinton is by far the best working actor today! Just look at her resume: 'Orlando', 'The War Zone', 'The Deep End', 'Michael Clayton', 'Julia', 'I Am Love', 'We Need to Talk About Kevin'.

She's prolific and exciting! Even her failures are fascinating to watch (Constantine anyone? Swinton was more interesting than Keanu Reeves).

43 Jennifer Jones
44 Miranda Richardson
45 Ryan Gosling Ryan Gosling Ryan Thomas Gosling is a Canadian actor, musician, and producer. He began his career as a child star on the Disney Channel's Mickey Mouse Club and went on to appear in other family entertainment programs including Are You Afraid of the Dark?

He's a newer actor, in Blue Valentine he was tremendous, totally got robbed of a nomination at the Oscars. Half Nelson is another example, along with Lars and the real Girl. All good movies. All because of him. - logblobo

He's acting in suicide room it's just amazing!

47 Elijah Wood Elijah Wood
48 Jesse Eisenberg Jesse Eisenberg Jesse Adam Eisenberg is an American actor, author, playwright, and humorist. He made his television debut with the short-lived comedy-drama series Get Real.

I know tons of people who haven't seen or heard of any of the Bourne movies and/or don't even know who Matt Damon IS. Seriously, this generation is going downhill.

50 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.
