Top Ten Mob Actors

Many people have played mobsters and here are my top 10.
The Top Ten
1 Marlon Brando Marlon Brando, Jr. was an American actor, film director, and activist. He is credited with bringing a gripping realism to film acting, and is often cited as one of the greatest and most influential actors of all time. He died on July 1, 2004 at the age of 80.

The star in the gangster.

Vito's perfect bland of commanding, imposing, yet soothing and analythical nature makes him unforgettable still 40 years later

2 Al Pacino Alfredo James "Al" (April 25, 1940) Pacino is an American actor and filmmaker. Pacino has had a career spanning more than five decades, during which time he has received numerous accolades and honors.

Maybe not the most badass. Certainly the most credible boss in movie.

3 Robert Dinero

He did a great job and won an oscar for Godfather Part 2 and was in multiple other gangster films such as Goodfellas, Casino, and Untouchables.

Scorsese is king of the gangster film and Dinero is his go to man. His killer role in The Godfather part 2 doesn't hurt either.

Robert de Niro was a very good actor, if I ever made a movie in his time, there is no doubt he would be the main character.

He"s good in every one of them but I watch everything that he"s in he"s a great actor

4 Joe Pesci Joseph Frank "Joe" Pesci is an Italian-American actor, comedian and musician, known for playing tough, volatile characters, in a variety of genres.

Some great actors playing mobsters on this list but I have to say, I think Joe Pesci is the greatest of all time. Joe is the only actor that really scares the hell out of me.

List should be
1. Robert De Niro
2. Joe Pesci
3. Al Pacino
4.Marlon Brando
5.Ray Liotta
Just consider Pesci's performance and impact in Goodfellas which is one of the greatest movies of all time.

Very hard to pick against bob and Al but this guy plays a mobster like nobody else.

Funny how? Like I'm a clown, I'm here to amuse you?

5 James Gandolfini

You might argue and say he was not the best but if you watch The Sopranos from day one and watched Tony develop it would be impossible to name a better tough guy. He was the bear. He didn't just give orders he was it. He could kill with his bare hands. Watching him drive threw Jersey in the opening credits smoking a big cigar it doesn't get better. From him being so true on camera as Tony, so believable he did for T.V. what the God Father did for movies. He changed what we watched on T.V. for years. Lets also take into factor that these other guys were in movies that last a few hours. God Father had 3 parts 3 hours each. The most out of all the mob movies. The sopranos has 6 long seasons spanned out over many many years. He stuck with that part day in and out and millions of people waited for every seconed.

... He is amazing... I loved all his work he played in my favorite move... I love him greatest actor of his time but now I hate him yes hate him but still the best nah just joking I don't even know who he is... Which means I hate him... I did this to get the little bar line in the blue... He is a good actor vote for him

He should be number one! I Loved him in The Sopranos. He had the attitude, the walk & the talk! Definitely one of the top best mobster actors.

6 Frank Vincent

People forget about raging bull. Mob or connected.
