4 Andrew Garfield - Peter Parker Andrew Garfield - Peter Parker Andrew Russell Garfield is a British-American actor. Born in Los Angeles, California and raised in Epsom, Surrey, Garfield began his career on the UK stage and in television productions.

I don't think he was a good Peter Parker. He was a good Spider-Man, but his Peter was too confident, too socially adjusted, too prone to stuttering, and too emotionless for half of his scenes. He was a very unconvincing Peter Parker, in general, and without getting Peter, at his core, right on film, you've not done the character right (no matter how quippy his Spider-Man alter ego is). - BKAllmighty

5 Heath Ledger - Joker Heath Ledger - Joker Heathcliff Andrew Ledger was an Australian actor and director. After performing roles in Australian television and film during the 1990s, Ledger left for the United States in 1998 to develop his film career.

Heat ledger must be under top 3. If someone wants a reason for this then watch "The Dark Knight"
