I agree, with the exception of the following:

Nicolas Cage (who's horrible, IMO)
Mel Gibson
Will Smith
Tom Cruise
Jim Carrey
Bruce Willis

...and the ADDITION of Ed Norton, Steve Buscemi and Will Ferrell.

Might have been easier to just say the entire cast of "The Wire". If you haven't seen it, you're missing out on the best thing TV has ever produced.

He's already on people's lists but IMO one of the most UNDERRATED actors is Kevin Spacey

Pretty good list. I liked the first 2 seasons of Prison break a lot by the way.


Personally I would subtract Matt Damon, John Travolta, Jim Carrey, and Sean Penn from your list. I have always felt all 4 are hit and miss. I would add Paul Giamatti, Christoper Walken, Clive Owen,Don Cheadle, Alan Arkin, Tobey Mcgwire, viggo Mortensen, Robert Downey Jr, Val Kilmer, jim Cavaziel, John Turtorro, Edward Norton, Andy Garcia, Tim Roth,Ed Harris, Gary Sinise, Christian Bale, Ewan McGregor, Sean Connery, Willem Dafoe,Ray Winstone, jimmy Smits, John Malkovich, Liev Schreiber, Kevin Pollak, Ryan Reynolds,Ben Kingsley, and Gary Oldman to your list, I am sure I am leaving out a lot, but thats all I could come up with off the top of my head.

Kennedy, that was a hilarious list. I almost spat out my cigerette laughing my butt off. 3#Michael Cera ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!

This kid has to be one of the worse actors ive seen to date. Ive been watching movies for at least 20 years now, and this kid is horrible.

And as someone put it already this is "your favorite list". You should title it, worst actors.

Good lists so far guys, particularly mentalcase's.

As far as Prison Break; up until this season the show was awesome. My favorite being the third season in Sona wih the first season close behind. This season though it's more like Prison Break meets Golden Eye and I don't really find myself clamoring to watch each new episode.

Anyways I'll give it a whirl...

Denzel Washington (Training Day, Fallen, Out of Time)
Seth Rogan (Miri makes a Porno, 40 Year Old Virgin, Superbad)
Chris Tucker (Friday, Rush Hour, Dead Presidents)
Brad Pitt (Fight Club, Snatch, Interview with the Vampire)
Tom Cruise (Top Gun, Vannila Sky, Eyes Wide Shut)
Val Kilmer (Ghost in the Darkness, Tombstone, Heat)
Kurt Russel (Tombstone, Stargate, Tango and Cash)
Avery Brooks (Benjamin Sisko in Star Trek Deep Space 9)
Edward Norton (American History X, Rounders, The Score)
Robert Deniro (Goodfellas, Casino, Heat)
Billy Bob Thorton (Bad Santa, Monsters Ball, Sling Blade)
Johnny Depp (Blow, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, What's eating Gibert Grape)
Jeff Bridges (Arlington Road, The Big Lebowski, Wild Bill)
Bruce Campbell (Army of Darkness, Brisco County Jr, Evil Dead)
Matt Damon (Rounders, Oceans 11, Dogma)
Arnold Schwarzenegger (Total Recall, T2, Kindergarten Cop)
Bruce Willis (Sixth Sense, Lucky # Sleven, 12 Monkeys)
Ben Browder (Farscape, Stargate SG-1)
Leonardo Dicaprio (The Beach, Catch me if you can, The Departed)
Will Ferrell- Old School, Stranger than Fiction. Talladega Nights)
Pierce Brosnan- (After the Sunset, Golden Eye, The Tailor of Panama)
Woody Harrelson (White Men Can't Jump, Natural Born Killers, Kingpin)
Gabriel Byrne (Usual Suspects, Stigmata, End of Days)
Kevin Bacon (Wild Things, Trapped, Stirof Echoes)
Chris Farley (Tommy Boy, Almost Heroes, Beverly Hills Ninja)

Anyone who has starred in a David Fincher movie should be in the list automatically. It's a who's who of unreal actors.

Brad Pitt, Edward Norton, Morgan Freeman, Sean Penn, Kevin Spacey, Michael Douglas, Robert Downey Jr, Jake Gyllenhall is making his way slowly but surely onto the list.

Others who make an honourable mention not so much for being GREAT actors, but making movies worthwhile :

Samuel L Jackson
Seth Rogan
Will Farrell
Will Smith
Christopher Walken
Christian Bale
Jack Black
Garry Oldman
Michael Cane
Sir Anthony Hopkins
Harvey Keitel
Rodney Dangerfeild

Then you've got the classics:
Pacino
De Niro
Gregory Peck
Jimmy Stewart is always worth a laugh. serious acting or not.

I can't help noticing the lack of Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Ralph Fiennes, Tom Wilkinson, Daniel Day-Lewis, Michael Sheen, and Robin Williams.

Definitely in the Top 5. Some other television actors worth naming are Hugh Laurie, Edward James Olmos, Michael Hogan, James Callis, Vincent D'Onofrio, and Michael C. Hall.

If we're talking TV actors, James Gandolfini would have to be up there, along with all the Soprano's actors, i also like Denis Haysbert from The Unit, and for an ensemble cast, you cant go past Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, Tony Hale, DAvid Cross and Jeffery Tambor from Arrested Development.

On their own they may not rank as some of the greatest actors alive, but you wont find another cast taht big that works so well with each other.

Prison breaks best season, season 3? No way!
Season 1 and 2 by far. I even think this season was better than last.


Here is my list of top actors in my eyes.


Denzel W.
Samual L. Jackson
Tom Cruise
John Malchovich (wrong spelling im sure)
Michael Douglas
Edward Norton
Kevin Spacey
Tom Hanks
Mel Gibson
Robert DeNiro
Joe Pesci
Christian Bale




btw I just saw the latest Batman, and i must say.....WAYYYYYYYY too much hype over this movie, and i just dont get what for. I thought the movie was avg. at best. Joker was played well, but wasnt mind blowing. I think more of his death, was the cause of the hype of the movie and his role.

REMEMBER just my opinion.

Christian Bale is a terrible actor.

Will Ferrel? Screwball comedians don't really belong on a best actors list IMO I like his comedy a lot, but actual acting? To me that's like putting a great boxer on a great MMA fighters list. Comedy doesn't really require acting ability, it requires charisma and comedic timing but those are entirely different from being able to believably portray emotions, which is the real skill involved in acting. Same reason guys like Keanu Reeves and Christian Bale don't really deserve to be on these lists, they never play roles that require them to display emotion. Superheroes are pretty static, unemotional characters as a rule of thumb.

It is your favourites so I'm not going to say "dumb list" or whatever, just to me, comedy and serious acting are apples and oranges. I like the majority of the comedians you listed, but I don't consider them actors any more than I consider Dave Chapelle an actor.

A few of my favourites are:
Kevin Spacey
DeNiro
Pacino
Michael Cain
Anthony Hopkins
Dustin Hoffman
Johnny Depp
Daniel Day-Lewis
Morgan Freeman
Edward Norton
Jack Nicholson
Ian McKellen

Old School and Talladega Nights alone have made me laugh more than any other movie by far. I think comedy (especially improv) takes just as much skill. He's not the best actor, but if I were going to watch a movie starring someone and I had 25 choices, one of them would be Will Ferrel.
