The Best 50 Actors of All Time

521 ratings | 101932 views
We might disagree about few of them or the orders, but most movie experts I think will not argue that those are the best male actors ever to appear on the screen. Actors not on the list but worth mentioning:Gary Cooper,Michael Douglas,Joe Pesci,Clark Gable,Clive Owen,Cary Grant,James Cagney,Robert Mitchum,Alec Guiness,Eli Wallach,Sylvester Stallone,Karl Malden,Leonardo Di Caprio,Brad Pitt,Liam Neeson,Samuel L. Jackson,Benecio Del Toro,Peter Sellers,Edward Norton, Peter Finch & Heath Ledger.

I take it your a young man who is not familiar with the classic movie stars from the Golden Age of Hollywood??? You are entitled to your personal opinion, as I am mine. Check out Oscar and Emmy winner, William Holden #1. Sunset Blvd, The Bridge on the River Kwai, Golden Boy, Network, The Wild Bunch, Picnic, Love is a Many Splendored Thing. I can go on and on. All Oscar winning flicks, or at least nominated for it. To not even give a honorable mention shows me that you did not do much research on this subject. No like, no subscribe!!!!!

Daring and justifiable to put Brando in first place. But Tom Hanks ahead of Olivier? C'mon. Will Smith and no Barrymore? Jim Carey but no Frederick March? De Gustibus, I suppose. But still...

Did you pick them out of a hat?
jacktheripoff1888 (18 days ago)
When you had Daniel Day Lewis at 17, the list lost it's credibility. He's a top-5 without any debate whatsoever.
vincent fiore (24 days ago)
Half you picks are a joke. Claude Rains, Michale Douglas, Paul Muni. Your list should have read my list of the best.
All liberals. don't watch them at all. I won't give them a red cent of my money by buying tickets to their movies.
Seymour Clearly (1 month ago)
Very odd list. You left out some truly famous and magnificent actors and put in actors whom no one considers to be "great" talents. The order of your list was weird as well.

I think you forgot about some of the giants of the industry. Jeremy Irons, Sir John Gielgud, Ralph Richardson, Richard Burton, and my all time favorite James Mason.
Laura Streeter (26 days ago)
Peter N I agree! Jeremy Irons is an amazing actor. John Geilgud, Burton, Richardson all did theatre. Acting on stage is much harder than film acting.
Theophilus Mcknight (1 month ago)
Awsome. Good
Gerry Griffin (1 month ago)
this is the most random selection i have ever seen, e.g. George Clooney ahead of Kirk Douglas, Sean Penn ahead of Laurence Olivier. loads missing, lots there that should not be etc.

Will Smith you are kidding right?
Andy Smithson (1 month ago)
Considering ability, best performances and number of great performances: 1. Nicholson 2. Brando 3. Bogart 4. Newman 5. Burton 6. Caine 7. Pacino 8. De Niro 9. Hackman 10. Scheider 11. Redford 12. Heston 13. Dean 14. George C Scott 15 Duvall 16 Crowe 17. Hoskins 18 Mitchum. All were tough guys without a flaw who conveyed authenticity. The dialogue in the older era was too stilted to be believable, but Bogart and Joseph Cotten were not affected. Too many wimps and bad scripts after about 1990.

Nicholas Cage and John Tarvolta - your joking.
713davidh42 (1 month ago)
Sorry, but your list is way overloaded with recent actors who have no business being considered on any list of the best actors of all time. You forgot about talents such as Charles Laughton, Ronald Colman, Montgomery Clift, Richard Burton or Alec Guiness while including the likes of Jim Carrey, John Travolta, Will Smith, Robin Williams or Johnny Depp which makes your list downright stupid.

Tom Aaron (2 months ago)
A lot of one dimensional actors...Pacino, wayne, De Niro, Brando,. Great on what they did but limited range. My number one is Henry Fonda. He played both the most charming and most evil characters in his movies. His character in 'Once Upon a Time in the West' is the most evil in moviedom...conveyed with facial expression.
Robert Longwill (2 months ago)
Are you kidding me Jim Carrey on this list of best actors bull s h i t he could not Act his way out of a wet paper bag

Victor Mature??? Omar Sharif and Sidney Poitier okay. Antonio Banderas needs more of a body of film work to make the list.

Jim Carrey was no great one. How about James Cagney, Charlton Heston , Tyrone Power, and the guy who played LITTLE CEASAR, I forgot his name. They were all great but you should add these guys in and extend it. But your right with all the others. They were great. 😍

Ruthless Goat (4 months ago)
I like Jim Carrey, and Redford was pretty, but your first 3 entries of a top 50 were horrible. EDIT: First FOUR.
Mónica Elisabeth Sacco (4 months ago)
Nicholas Cage, Christian Bale still have to show some good acting to belong here. Lawrence Olivier just in the middle of the list? Where are Charles Laughton, Sidney Poitier, Robert Mitchun, James Cagney, Ian McKellen, Alan Rickman...? So many excellent actors missing...
Laura Streeter (26 days ago)
Monica Elisabeth Sacco Gasp! Charles Laughton. I forgot about him. He was a fabulous actor. He was amazing and so heartbreaking in The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Later in his life he turned in a bravura performance in Witness for the Prosecution. Great actor.

Well I expect that nobody would agree with this list and I'm no exception. There are so many things that influence who you like. The movies they've acted in, whether you are a contemporary of theirs, whether you actually LIKE the characters they have portrayed, how much any flops they have made influence you, whether you actually like the man at all. (Would Kevin Spacey be in there today?) I could go on. But I can only finish by saying there's some really great actors in your list and some really great actors that, in my view would have been in there instead of some of the great actors you've got in there.
Lacey Pelham (4 months ago)
omg Brad Pitt? Sidney Poitier? these two far ahead of Cage, Carrey, Eastwood, Will Smith, Travolta, Penn. What about Richard Burton and Peter O'Toole? sheesh

MsAppassionata (4 months ago)
I'm surprised that Laurence Olivier is so low on your list since many critics think he was the greatest, or certainly one of, the greatest actors of the 20th century.
Anne Brookes (4 months ago)
Cillian murphy?? James caan?? Are great actors and underrated! Glad you added sean connery he is a very good actor to. Laurence oliver and al pacino should be on top! And johny depp although most people wiuld disagree with me and jack Nicholson should be at least on top 5 he is a very good actor.

Anyone that would include George Clooney in a top 50 list of actors needs to be checked into the nearest mental hospital. What a joke!
rochstan123 (4 months ago)
Good list, but I'd also have Richard Gere, Steve Mcqueen and Brian Cox. I don't know about Nicolas Cage.
MsCherryPop3 (4 months ago)
Will Smith? George Clooney? Tom Hanks? Pervert Kevin Spacey? You have got to be kidding!
Jair Da Silva Abreu (4 months ago)
E vários grandes atores ficaram fora da lista conforme ilustraram vários colegas.
Jair Da Silva Abreu (4 months ago)
Na minha opinião o certo é ser grandes atores ou não. Esse negócio de lista com numeração de quem é em primeiro lugar ou último é furada.

When I say Jim Carey I had to leave !!!!!
