I have a list for who I think are the BEST actors of all time.
Well this is not it.
These are my personal favorite.
10) Will Ferrell
“Its so damn hot! Milk was a bad choice!”
This list is not for the best actors, its for my favorite ones that I love seeing in movies the most. Every movie Will Ferrell is in, results as 100% entertaining to me, the guy is a CHARACTER.
Maybe his movie sucks, but he will be hilarious in it.
9) Michael Caine
“This was built by a wizard. A man that can do what magicians pretend to do. Real magic”
This man is a great character actor. He blew me away in The Prestige and in the Dark Knight.
His dialogue seems to be perfect in every movie he’s in (besides Austin Powers)
Also he does the best narratives in any movie EVER in “The Prestige” when he talks about the three steps of magic, just epic.
8 ) Gary Oldman
“Its not a book, its a WEAPON”
This guy (like all actors in this list) has a voice you can hear with your eyes closed and KNOW who it is.
A fantastic actor, and even when he is given bad lines and shitty characters he PLAYS his heart out, bravo mister…bravo.
He can play both a good guy and a bad guy in every extreme, extremely gifted.
7) Ralph Fiennes
“You are nothing but specs of dust under our fingernails...”
This man is the best villain actor in the WORLD. Period.
Everything about him is made of win, he makes the perfect evil character.
Perfect Voldemort and Hades. He is gold in every movie he has ever been in, and that would be about like a million.
6) Christian Bale
“Do you want me to go trash your fucking lights!?”
Every role he is in PLUS his fury outrage in the Terminator Salvation set makes him my hero.
The Batman voice is epic and his expression is awesome.
Not to mention he was perfect in The Prestige.
5) Chiwetel Ejiofor
“There is no situation you cannot escape from. There is no position you cant turn to your advantage”
Probably the best actor in this list.
Red Belt trully shows his talent.
But when he is in a SHIT movie but makes it watchable with his performance, then his brilliance is more visible.
2012 was filth, but his scenes with perfect acting made me clap.
4) Liam Neeson
“I could have gotten more out. I could have got more people out. :::cries:::”
His speech in Shindlres list made me weep (part of it is quoted above)
One of the best actors in the world, EVER.
If I name every caracter hes DESTROYED (in the good way) id grow old.
If i had a nickle for every cool character he nailed… well… id be a billionaire
3) Nicolas Cage
“Hi, I’m an agent with the federal… FBI… Well, my, I’m Stanley Goodspeed.”
Some people hate him.
Some people like him.
I LOVE NIC CAGE!!!!!!!!!!!
Good or bad movie, it doesnt matter, this guy is always ace. I watch shitty movies with him just to see him.
Jesus christ hes awesome, seriously.
No but for real i love this guy.
2) Sam Rockwell
He is playing Justin Hammer in Iron Man 2.
This man deserved the oscar this year (2010) for his performance in the movie Moon.
He is such a smooth actor and he makes it look easy.
Just by LOOKING at him you can tell how easy acting is for this guy. I dont think he ever took acting classes. The most convincing actor alive in my opinion. And he does not just play himself like some actors, he can ACT and make that role look easy.
1) Leonardo DiCaprio
“Frank, look at me. Look at me. I’m not the fuckin’ rat. Okay? I’m not the fuckin’ rat.”
It PAINS me to put Sam Rockwell in my #2 spot. But in The Departed Leo showed how intense he can take his roles.
And it seems that he will continue this in Inception.
Watching this guy in Shutter Island was a true ride, the movie itself was amazing but he is the most underrated actor on Earth, I mean- NO OSCARS YET? C’MON!!!
The Reader, Aviator, Inception, Shutter Island, Departed… a really strong and solid actor. I also loved when he played a crackhead and a retarded kid when he was little, fantastic.
BTW, i hated him in Titanic. Weird, right?
You guys got a list too?
