Top Ten Black Actors

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Ving Rhames

I think he is one of the greatest actors ever! He can be mean and ruthless so much make you scared to leave your house because you forget it's a movie; he can be the sweetest fatherly type that just brings tears to your eyes! Now here's my other reason he is fine and sexy and can play that role in all the above movies, therefore he should without a doubt be ranked right up there with the best, not way down here he is in my "top 10" maybe people don't get the name with the actor, as it is kinda different!

He's one of the best black actors ever, not sure why he's down here in the list. I hope soon he will be up there with the other good ones.

I think he should move up the rating ladder. He has had roles in many of the movies I've watched.

I love all his movies and acting, very very WOW!

Highly underrated in my opinion. He has been around such a long time, and he should really be up there with all the greats.

Definitely belongs on this list. Awesome job in August Rush and a great job in Iron Man. A truly profound actor. - Freak_Show1

He makes you believe in his character. He is intellegent as well as handsome. However his heart is in his acting look at the movie August Rush. What a movie.

I love him and like him a lot! Crazy for him

I love his presence on camera and acting. I wish he had not been blacklisted. He should be in more films and honing his craft. I hope to see him higher on the list soon!

I think he's a great actor. What I like most about Tyler Perry is that he gives life to his characters, whether he's playing Madea or some other character actor that person come across as a real person, a person we can all relate to. He has taken us to another level. We see casts we wouldn't normally see and I'm loving it. Thanks Tyler.

He is a AWESOME actor!

Love this man... Especially love Madea... Needs to be up top!

Come on, why is he even on the list?
