Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

Hendrix was considered the best IN his time.

It's like you picked all the favourites from the '70s and added in Depp because he's totally in right now.

Leonardo DiCaprio, talk ****, but if you havent seen The Departed, The Aviator, or Blood Diamond then you just seriously dont know!,

Or possibly Jim Carrey, hes great being goofy but in his serious rolls like The Number 23, and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind hes amazing. Also movies like Man on the Moon really showcase his range.

Hopkins is probably the best actor, but I know Hanks has a tonne of oscars. Buit I chose De Niro cus he is so badass.


Hanks robbed the Oscar from Morgan Freeman that year.

Hanks won two oscars...He deserved them both... His 'Forrest Gump' was much better than Freeman's 'Red Redding.' Cheers!
#18
Not flexible? He won Oscars in 'Philadelphia' and 'Forrest Gump'...totally different characters. Plus he was bad ass in Saving Private Ryan...He's probably the 2nd greatest actor, behind Edward Norton.
#19
edward norton is awesome, but hes still edward norton, even when hes a sterioded nazi hes still the same edward norton (which we all love, including me, i have like 9 of his movies), and tom hanks was not a badass in saving private ryan, that movies great, but he wasnt a badass, idk, hell allways be little forest to me, haha.
#21
i think the best actors are the ones that play like, roles that are on different ends of the spectrum, like jack black, you compare his goofy **** to king kong, or ashton kutcher, he was amazing in the butterfly effect. terrance howard is really good too. Even though he only did on movie, i really loved Emien in 8 mile
#22
this list is all old people, a great young actor is definately jarred letto

i choose robert de niro, he's pretty awesome all round

Yeah...He's totaly typecast.

Bruce Willis. He can convince you that he's actually doing what he's doing on screen. Same with Jack Nicholson. Depp's a good actor. A tad overhyped. but still a good actor.

You know which actor sucks? Adam Sandler.

Come on, man...Ed Norton wasn't his usual role in Primal Fear...and he was friggin amazing... Hanks always has a little Gump in him, I admit, but he always has great box office draw and he usually has great critical acclaim. Hanks was badass in Saving Private Ryan. Don't you remember his last scene: shooting at the German tank as he was gut shot...

I'm the only one who thought Milli Vanilli were good actors?

Milli Vanilli were pretty good actors until the tape skipped during their live show...They lacked improv skills (and musical talent, i guess)

Both of them deserved the Oscar. Two of my favourite ever movies.

There are so many amazing actors that it is literally impossible to name the best actor.

Thank all that is holy for the great actors of this world who give us hope.

its a two horse race between Christopher Walken, and Christopher Walken...

i know thats technically only one person, but i just thought he's so awesome he deserves two billings.

plus you can totally imagine Walken having a slagging match with himself at an award ceremony

Robert De Niro is just the master. All my favourite films have him in it. There is something about the characters he plays and how he plays them that really involves you.

But all those actors are great, especially Jack Nicholson and Al Pacino.

i am disappointed at your exclusion of Morgan Freeman from the list.

He is God......really, he is God, he played him twice.
