Brando was , is and will ever be the best method actor . And in my humble opinion Pacinoand Deniro are the ones who fallow him.

I think that this is the first watch mojo video I can't find any fault in the choices.

American movies and artists are so great...so much authenticity and rawness in the execution of scenes and performances. So well analysed and crafted scenes.

I wouldn't put Shia on the list but Philip Seymore Hoffman instead

Ryan Gosling is so underrated smh. Him, Michelle Williams, and the child actor who played their daughter in Blue Valentine lives together in a house for a month, had a fake Christmas, made legitimate homemade family videos, and Ryan and Michelle even argued every day to make their family seem as real as possible. He also did a bunch of weird shit for that one movie where his character falls in love with a sex doll. So underrated smh. He has brilliant performances in Blue Valentine, The Place Beyond the Pines, and Blade Runner 2049. Lmk if I forgot any.

Pretty great list... De Niro is so good that he manage to get scary through the screen!!! Heath Ledger got same effect as the Joker, a very discomfort feeling that gives you chills. Agreed, Brando is the Godfather of method acting from his beginning in the business

These method actors are truly qualified to make the list of Chameleonic actors. I'm surprised on a few of them made that list
Azadeh Akhavan (14 days ago)
Top 3 are my favorites
Sean Mulloy (16 days ago)
Nobody comes close to Brando..

Gary Oldman and Philip Seymour Hoffman??
Barraq Ali (17 days ago)
Daniel Day Lewis is my favourite !
Aaron Ruesch (18 days ago)
Shia Labaeiough, a method actor? ok I'm unsubscribing, that's just nonsense.
jenniferkeyfrahm (19 days ago)
I agree with a couple comments below, as Gary Oldman should have been high on this list, Leonardo deserves a nod as well as Sean Penn, and at quick glance, I didn't assume I would see Michael Sheen, but he deserved at least a mention as well.
Souro Mukherjee (20 days ago)
Jim Carrey should be under honourable mention list too.
Souro Mukherjee (20 days ago)
I feel Brando and Nicholson should be ranked under top 3.
holamoco17 (20 days ago)
Nr 1 Marlon Brando. Nr 2 Al Pacino
Rohit Kumar (22 days ago)

ThePsychoticPenguin (25 days ago)
It's such a fucking tragedy that Heath Ledger died. Greatest Joker ever.
Maybe watch Mojo should look outside hollywood to watch method acting... google these actors too. 1. https://youtu.be/DJXbql_Sd7I Kamal Hassan 2. https://youtu.be/_IVayP5te0Q Vikram

Stop suffering, try playing
WonderWhatHappened (27 days ago)
This video must've been hacked. That has to be the only reason I can think of to put Shia Labeouf on this list. I totally agree that Daniel Day Lewis should be #1 though. MichaeI Fassbender was amazing in Hunger and I bet in the future we will be talking about him. I assume by actor you mean male actor because that would be the only reason not to have Meryl Streep , Sissy Spacek, Cate Blanchette, Marion Cotillard, even Vivian Leigh or Glenn Close.
Murtaza (27 days ago)
Wtf is shia labeouf doing in this list, wont even put him in honorable mention and you can't add heath ledger and adrian brody on the basis of one movie performance. I had personally add bratt pitt ( fight club & 12 monkeys), edward norton ( american history x & primal fear), leonardo dicaprio ( django unchained & revenant), jack nicholson ( shining & one flew over the cucos nest) And i had put deniro at least at third
Mind Universe (27 days ago)
Not even a mention of Jim Carrey?
Life of a Bibliophile (29 days ago)
James Dean needs to be on this list. James Dean was the method actor Marlon Brandi always wanted to become. The Godfather is proof of that.
Anupam Pandey (30 days ago)
Jared Leto should have been in the list

De niro is a great method actor...So long as the role is exactly like every other role has played
Nugtroen (1 month ago)
Anthony Hopkin? Gary Oldman? Ben Kingsly? Tom Hanks Johnny depp? Leonardo DiCaprio? and Rowan Atkinson aka MR. BEAN cmon....
Ludwig Hovenbeet (1 month ago)
Heath was a great actor no doubt, BUT number 3 on this list, seriously?? Above De Nero and Pacino?? Think you got a bit carried away their @watchmojo.
Emperor Palpitate (1 month ago)
RD plays the same person in almost every movie. Overrated.
Nuno Conde (1 month ago)
This video is laughable! First: Ledger, LaBeouf...?! What are you talking about?! They are trivial actors. Second: Marlon Brando is number one. Period. He’s the pioneer of the method and the best actor EVER! And by faaar. And all the great actors agree with me. A simple search here on Youtube prove it.
John Paul Pampolina (1 month ago)
Im sure johnny depp should have a spot on the list.
Aditya Singh Rao (1 month ago)
Jack Nicholson as an honourable mention? What the fuck seriously? How dumb are you mojo?

Marlon Brando is No 1

Hoffman shows the world you don't have to be super handsome and six foot two to be one of the best actors on the planet.

Why in the hell was Shia on this list? But glad to see Daniel Day-Lewis made it number 1! I’m sad that he retired. Phantom Thread was good, but should not have been his last movie!
Mariam Shotadze (1 month ago)
Nicholson just only honorable mention? You are just kidding, I guess!!!!!

Is Shia Labeouf a method actor??

brando daniel day lewis jack Nicholson Al pacino
antonis ch (1 month ago)
So Ben Kinglsey didn't even get a honorable mention despite playing Gandhi (for which he won an Academy Award)? He definitely deserves to be in this list for his role as Gandhi and as Don Logan in Sexy Beast... Also Sean Penn should be in the list... The list should have been like this: 1) Daniel-Day Lewis 2) Marlon Brando 3) Robert de Niro 4) Ben Kingsley 5) Al Pacino 6) Christian Bale (for The Machinist) 7) Dustin Hoffman 8) Sean Penn 9) Jack Nicholson 10) Edward Norton Heath Ledger, Joaquin Phoenix and Gary Oldman as honorable mentions.

Just imagine what Heath Ledger could’ve achieved if he hadn’t have passed so young. He was phenomenal and could’ve only reached greater heights from where he left us.

Actually Jack Nicholson has 3 oscars too

Jackie Cortez not in a leading role
Nikolaos Mylonas (2 months ago)
Johnny Depp deserves a place in the list although he has done some shitty movies lately. His powers of transformation are incomparable. Brando was the actor that popularized the method and that's the reason he deserves the first place. Although, of course, his did not show his exceptional talent in the comedy genre.
John Doe (2 months ago)
You have looked past so many good actors to concentrate on famous ones. Do another list of the people you don’t notice. People who pop up everywhere as different characters. The ones that disappear into the background. Those are the real actors and they don’t get the fame or money. They do it for the love of it. And the fact you didn’t even have Gary oldman as an honorable mention means you don’t have a clue what you are talking about. Your list is shit and you don’t deserve to have this kind of exposure.
John Doe (2 months ago)
Deniro has never been able to act himself out of his own voice. Come on. He always sounds like deniro. Is that acting?
John Doe (2 months ago)
Hats off to them. But really,.. are you an actor if you have to go so deep into it? Running around and making yourself out of breath isn’t the same as acting as if you were out of breath. Which is the better actor? The one that can convince you with acting or the one that has to actually do it? Kind of a strange thing there.
John Doe (2 months ago)
Try acting
Daniela Vilu (2 months ago)

If Heath Ledger hadn't died he wouldn't be on this list. All he's really done is The Joker.

Plankton Revere (2 months ago)
Trash! Straight up trash! Who put this list together? You, whoever you are, should be held to account for your ignorance presented as credible. A better list : 1. Daniel Day Lewis 2. Marlon Brando 3.Al Pacino 4.Robert Deniro 5. Heath Ledger 6. Leonardo DiCaprio 7. Gary Oldman 8. Jack Nicholson 9. Christian Bale 10. Joaquin Phoenix This list, however subjective , is far more informed than this drivel of a video.

Birdman X X namdriB (2 months ago)
This is NOT about "the best actor"? It's about the best "METHOD ACTOR". which I thought the list was very accurate. D.D.L. is my favorite actor btw, and deserved the most Oscars because of his sheer devotion

Daniel , of course ...
