A great actor. Even better than House is his performance as Bertie Wooster in the BBC series.
One word: HOUSE!
Need I say more?

Oh my gosh! how can this guy not be number one he has the best face expression ever he is so cool I think he is the best actor in history I think that Harrison ford should be tied at number one with Sean Connery
Harrison Ford is a way better actor by far than anybody called Joseph Vijay. Whoever this guy is does he have 40 years acting expirience? Has he starred in some of the greatest movie series' of all time like Indiana Jones, Star Wars, or the Jack Ryan series? I don't think so.
In Indiana Jones, he can't be better.

He brings it in every film. Some of my favorites that hasn't been mention is the negotiatoe and k-pax but love everything he does
American Beauty, The Usual Suspects, LA Confidential, Swimming With Sharks, and ,without a doubt the most fascinating role of his, John Doe in Se7en
He is pretty underrated. Never the first actor you think of, but he's been in so many great movies and have had many extremely amazing performances.

Shooter- an exceptional movie. Italian Job wasn't that bad either.

Brilliant actor, seriously underrated - go back to his performance in StarMan -- especially considering it was shot out of sequence. OUTSTANDING
One of the best and underrated actors in Hollywood. The Dude! The fact that he only won his first Oscar several years ago is sacrilege. Mr. Bridges has been at the top of the game for many years now, almost always Oscar worthy performances. Yet when he finally wins the award it is not even one of his best? Answer me that. Best performances #1- Jack, The Fisher King #2- Jeffrey Lebowski, The Big Lebowski
Consider portrayal of two starkly (no pun intended) different roles in The Big Lebowski and Iron ManMore comments about Jeff Bridges

The king of acting
Inspire lot of actors
Known as the tragedy King in Bollywood. He is the most respected actor. Some of his performances leaves you with everlasting feelings
It's easy to make laugh but it is difficult to make people cry... He is 1 of the phenomenal actors India have ever produced... Present actors are just following the guidelines formulated by him.More comments about Dilip Kumar
He was not only a good actor he inspired a whole race to start following their dreams. He was also an amazing martial artist.
The strongest there was, no one could beat this man. I mean just pure amazing all his stunts were real.
Acting since he was six years old and believable in every scene. He did not want to be known as a "Kung Fu superstar" but wanted to be remembered as an actor. OK he is the greatest film fighter and was the greatest real life fighter but all his characters are believable in terms of body language and speech delivery. Just think about it the next time you watch a Bruce Lee film and compare how much you believe the characters he plays to the characters in this list
WOT A GREAT ACTOR!! a joy to watch and is great in every role
One of the best actor and directors in hollywood, I don't mind to watch apocalypto the whole day.
He is the Michael Jordan of movies.

Matt Damon's obviously one of the best actors ever! His movies are so great, well picked and his acting is very believable
It's worth watching all of his movies. It all has good stories and his acting is so GREAT! Plus the fact that he's a gorgeous good-looking man! Aw! My husband hates him...
Matt Damon should be on the top 10 right now! he is an extremely talented actor and is very cute too. ive seen so many movies with him in them and i havent disliked any one of them! u go Matt!

What!? Ryan gosling was easily the best actor of 2011. Should at least be higher
Thought I would round off my list with, well not really an up and comer, but one that is definitely talented. Ryan Gosling is another who simply can not turn in a poor performance. Think back, can you remember one? In 2006 his performance in Half Nelson was unbelievable. I think he deserved the Best Picture, even with how good Hoffman was as Capote. There's another actor I left off... Gosling will have a Best Actor very soon, it will happen. Excellent actor, Gary Oldman Jr.
#1- Dan Dunne, Half Nelson #2- Driver, Drive
Ryan is one of the best actors of today I have ever seen, he is very talented and very virsitile... anyone who can go from playing a nazi, to a mentally disturbed teen, to a hopeless romantic from the 40s, and make me believe it, has my vote!
Fantastic in everything! He is an extremely talented actor! He can make characters in completely fictional stories seem realistic and believable, he's that good of an actor! Dark Angel was a SPECTACULAR show and Jensen made it even better. He was so great in his first appearance on the series that they brought him back as a regular. That shows how good he is!!
Ever since I've seen Supernatural, I keep discovering more films from him. He's simply amazing, really, there are no words, and he deserves #1 place!
He's simply amazing. He's a good person and he's really funny. He really knows how to act!More comments about Jensen Ackles
Greatest film actor/director/producer of all time. He entertained for 75 years, and if it was not for him, modern cinema would not be even close to where it is today. Thus, he does not deserve to not be in the Top 10, let alone the top 100.
Let's change this! R.I.P Charles Spencer Chaplin.
I can't believe he's not already topping, let alone on, the list.
Definitely the greatest
Why was he not put on this list? He is the best actor out of the Twilight Series, anyone that disagrees, good luck in the looney bin.
great actor and absolutely good-looking ;)
Please keep it up dear. I think you are great but lttle bit practice is necessary.

He is such an amazing actor and awesome in general he should really be higher on this list! I'm sure he will be soon after the success of the avengers and the Bourne legacy
How can you not love Jesus? My name is Dustin Bible and think it is a grave injustice that Caviezel is ranked so low. Just you guys wait his new show is coming out and he will show you how talented he is. I think he is the most underrated actor of his time. I mean come on vote for the man.
The Count, The Christ, need I say more.... well, okay, My Own Private Idaho, Frequency, The Thin Red Line, born 1 hour from where I live..... a SOLID guy, ALL-AMERICAN MAN, and it helps that he's so nice to look at!
Will ferrell has done a overwelhming job with his movies like the campaign, anchorman, step brothers, the other guys, talledaga nights, megamind, blades of glory, semi-pro, everthing must go, land of the lost, elf, and kicking and screaming.
Do you guys seriously have special needs will ferrell has to be one of the funniest actors in the past 20 years him and adam sandler
why he is not higher in the list i do not know....GREAT actor, magnolia...boogie nights ...:P many more
VERY genius such an incredible actor I believe every moment he is in his character's skin. He's magnificient.
Well obviously he should be in the top 10. Anyone who knows anything about acting just needs to see "Kind Hearts and Coronets", "Bridge on the River Kwai", "The Ladykillers", "Dr. Zhivago", "Oliver Twist" etc. To know that this guy knows how to play his characters to a tee. Only behind Lord Olivier and Brando in my opinion.
He looks harmless and mediocre but when you see more movies you will notice that he can't be replaced.

Naseeruddin Shah is one of the finest actors of Indian cinema.
Keanu Reeves, despite his sad life, will always be as somebody who knows how
To care and love truly. He just doesn't accept movies for the heck of it but
Chooses the best script for him. HE IS THE ONE!
Quite good acting and good looking, teehee. He deserves to be higher up on this list.
Best as Neo I love all his roles and movies, He has that New Born Child look every time.More comments about Keanu Reeves
the KING of cool the best actor from the 60's an excellent race car driver and motocrosser too.
