Top 10 Best Actors of the 90s
Tom Hanks is an amazingly talented actor. Well-rounded and imaginative, he has done more for the film industry in the last few decades than many that have tried. I.wonder if he just picks great roles, or does he make a movie great?
Joe Versus the Volcano (1990), The Bonfire of the Vanities (1990), A League of Their Own (1992), Sleepless in Seattle (1993), Philadelphia (1993), Forrest Gump (1994), Apollo 13 (1995), That Thing You Do! (1996), Saving Private Ryan (1998), You've Got Mail (1998), The Green Mile (1999).
Tom Hanks was the best in Forrest Gump.. He was just awesome. I enjoyed the Green Mile too. I think Tom Hanks is a really nice person and he should be right up their with his acting.. He is truly awesome.
By far the most accomplished and diverse actor of the 90s. He was unbelievable in Forrest Gump, Saving Private Ryan, and Philadelphia. One of my favorite actor of all time.
So good looking and an awesome actor!
I wish he still looked the same because I really wanted
Him to be in my movie that I'm gonna make when I'm older in Hollywood
Based on my novel about vampires. I wish that Leonardo Dicaprio would be
The guy in my movie
I absolutely find Leonardo DiCaprio very talented and cute. He's now older but he still has all that talent. He's a wonderful person in so many ways. The way he surges for the environment. I've watched some his recent movies.
I love Leonardo DiCaprio! He's not only a wonderful actor, but he's a wonderful person as well. He's still just as charming and talented as he was in back then and I believe he will continue to wow the crowds for years to come

A Few Good Men and Mission Impossible were two of the greatest movies of the '90s. He made them very dramatic and interesting.
His personality exudes out any character he plays. It gives the the feeling of optimistic and joyfulness

Lovable! I'm always gonna vote for him. Amazing actor, lovely personality, not to mention his looks...
I love some of his movies. I think he killed Hamlet, in Winnipeg.
Brad Pitt is one of the best actors in History. He is just awesome. Really enjoyed Joe Black, Seven Years in Tibet, Sleepers and my favorite is Legends of the Fall. He should be right up their at the top. You can just see what a great person he is and his beautiful wife Angelina. You can see what a great person he is if you go to New Orleans, you may see him. Helping the people from Hurricane Katrina.

How is it that this amazing actor/man/person is not number one? He is by far the best actor here then mabey tom cruise... And jim carrey, adam sandler, bredon fraiser, will smith, leonardo dicapreo and brad pitt... The others pretty much suck...
Johnny Depp is awesome..Such a great actor. Chooses his own roles..So many awesome films. He has to be one of the best!
Jonny deep is best actor not this time. But he was a wonder full actor this time for his movie'carry baby,... Ijaj ahmed

I just love his movies... He is the best... He should top this list...
He deserves to be in top 5 at least.
The Rocky series revolutionized the world for the better, and I also love Creed.
Rocky was the greatest movie Sly ever played in..He's an awesome actor.
He's epic in every single way, and more than deserves to be in front of Pierce Brosnan
Kindergarten cop is definitely one of my favorite movies. I liked the first Terminator movie but my favorite was the second Terminator with Linda Hamilton.

I was hesitant to see Primal Fear until I saw Norton's incredible performance. And Fight Club remains to be one of my favorite movies of all time. He does everything well, and that's pretty much a must-do for actors. Most of the actors on this list are incredible, but Edward Norton should be higher up.
Surprised to see Edward this low. His performance in American History X was Oscar worthy and Fight Club was great. As the first comment stated, I also wonder what he has been up to. I haven't seen him in many Hollywood movies since his heyday in the late 90s.
American History X, Primal Fear, Fight Club.3 of my favourite films of the 90's. Should have won at least 1 oscar if not 2.
He is one terrific actor. I love the movies he plays in. You are pretty much guaranteed he's the bad guy.
The perfect Bond for the 90s and many other great performances outside of the franchise like The Thomas Crown affair, Dante's peak and The Tailor of Panama.

He must be back in Hollywood. He is a really talented actor. The reason his career had drown is because of his stupid Ex-wife Afton smith who is a gold digger. Just used him for money. She came into his life and went away just like a passing cloud. But his fans would pray for him to be back in Hollywood. Best of luck for his upcoming Bollywood movie "The fields" ☺
He is the most sexiest men alive! If Rhea Durham don't want him send him my way! Ill put him to good use! Ill make him think the badroom is my bith place!
