1.
Christian Bale
Christian Charles Philip Bale was born in Pembrokeshire, Wales, UK on January 30, 1974, to English parents Jennifer "Jenny" (James) and David Charles Howard Bale. His mother was a circus performer and his father, who was born in South Africa, was a commercial pilot. The family lived in different countries throughout Bale's childhood...
“ Extremely passionate and dedicated to his work with his movies like TDK trilogy, American Hustle and The Fighter to name a few, Bale continues to show us that he's a force to be reckoned with. ” - joetufano882
 
2.
Robert Downey Jr.
Robert Downey Jr. has evolved into one of the most respected actors in Hollywood. With an amazing list of credits to his name, he has managed to stay new and fresh even after over four decades in the business. Downey was born April 4, 1965 in Manhattan, New York, the son of writer, director and filmographer Robert Downey Sr. and actress Elsie Downey (née Elsie Ann Ford)...
“ Who would've thought that RDJ would be able to overcome his drug addiction, and prove that he's still got it? Obviously his performance as Iron Man sticks out in a lot of people's minds but don't forget Sherlock Holmes and Tropic Thunder! He also is really good at showing his emotional/serious side also. ” - joetufano882
 
3.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Actor, Inception
Joseph Leonard Gordon-Levitt was born February 17, 1981 in Los Angeles, California, to Jane Gordon and Dennis Levitt. Joseph was raised in a Jewish family with his late older brother, Dan Gordon-Levitt, who passed away in October 2010. His parents worked for the Pacifica Radio station KPFK-FM and his maternal grandfather...
“ After seeing him in TDKR, Looper, 50/50 and Don Jon, this guy has a bright future in front of him. ” - joetufano882
 
4.
Tom Hanks
Thomas Jeffrey Hanks was born in Concord, California, to Janet Marylyn (Frager), a hospital worker, and Amos Mefford Hanks, an itinerant cook. His mother's family, originally surnamed "Fraga", was entirely Portuguese, while his father was of mostly English ancestry. Tom grew up in what he has called a "fractured" family...
“ Good ole Tom is the bomb! He never ceases to impress. ” - joetufano882
 
5.
Leonardo DiCaprio
Actor, Inception
Few actors in the world have had a career quite as diverse as Leonardo DiCaprio's. DiCaprio has gone from relatively humble beginnings, as a supporting cast member of the sitcom Growing Pains and low budget horror movies, such as Critters 3, to a major teenage heartthrob in the 1990s, as the hunky lead actor in movies such as Romeo + Juliet and Titanic...
“ Where is that Oscar? He most definitely deserves it! ” - joetufano882
 
6.
Harrison Ford
Actor, Star Wars
Harrison Ford was born on July 13, 1942 in Chicago, Illinois, to Dorothy (Nidelman), a radio actress, and Christopher Ford (born John William Ford), an actor turned advertising executive. His father was of Irish and German ancestry, while his maternal grandparents were Jewish immigrants from Minsk, Belarus...
“ Han Solo, Indiana Jones, Richard Kimble, Detective John Book and Branch Rickey. Even though he hasn't done a whole lot of things of merit lately, he's still got it and can't wait to see him come back in Force Awakens. ” - joetufano882
 
7.
Robert De Niro
Actor, Goodfellas
One of the greatest actors of all time, Robert De Niro was born on August 17, 1943 in Manhattan, New York City, to artists Virginia (Admiral) and Robert De Niro Sr. His paternal grandfather was of Italian descent, and his other ancestry is English, Dutch, German, French and Irish. He was trained at the Stella Adler Conservatory and the American Workshop...
“ What can I say about De Niro that hasn't already been said? He's arguably the best actor out there. ” - joetufano882
 
8.
Daniel Radcliffe
Daniel Jacob Radcliffe was born on July 23, 1989 in Fulham, London, England, to casting agent Marcia Gresham (née Jacobson) and literary agent Alan Radcliffe. His father is from a Northern Irish Protestant background, while his mother was born in South Africa, to a Jewish family (from Lithuania, Poland...
“ The boy who will always be Harry Potter! ” - joetufano882
 
9.
Tobey Maguire
Actor, Spider-Man
Tobias Vincent Maguire was born in Santa Monica, California. His parents were 18 and 20, and not yet married, when he was born. His mother, Wendy (Brown), did advertising, publicity, and acting in Hollywood for years as she coached and managed Tobey. His father, Vincent Maguire, was a cook and sometimes a construction worker...
“ This is more than likely the most controversial choice on this list. I know a lot of people don't like him anymore because of Spider-Man 3, but he was unfortunately given a pretty bad screenplay to work with. He doesn't deserve all the hate he's gotten since then. And he's done some good and even great movies in his whole career like Cider House Rules, Seabiscuit, Brothers, Great Gatsby, Ice Storm and of course the first two Spider-Man movies by Sam Raimi. And I look forward to seeing him in "Pawn Sacrifice". Tobey is a very rare kind of actor who is really subtle in the way he plays his characters. Some people are bothered by that, but I'm not. With the camerawork, music and the slight change in his facial expression you can tell what's going on through his head. You don't always need to act like you're in a Shakespeare play. Hopefully one day, he'll finally get the recognition he deserves. ” - joetufano882
 
10.
Mark Hamill
Actor, Star Wars
Mark Hamill is best known for his portrayal of Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars trilogy - Star Wars, Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back, and Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi - a role he would reprise in Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens. Hamill also starred and co-starred in the films Corvette Summer, The Big Red One, and Kingsman: The Secret Service...
“ He was the best choice to play Luke (and I'm psyched to see him return in Episode 7), but his Joker is the best aside from Heath Ledger. Lately it looks like he's been making a comeback in live action gigs, such as Kingsman and the Flash and deservedly so. Like with what I said about Tobey, Mark deserves more credit. ” - joetufano882
 
11.
Michael J. Fox
Michael J. Fox was born Michael Andrew Fox on June 9, 1961 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, to Phyllis Fox (née Piper), a payroll clerk, and William Fox. His parents moved their ten-year-old son, his three sisters, Kelli Fox, Karen, and Jacki, and his brother, Steven, to Vancouver, British Columbia...
“ Scott Howard, Pfc. Erikkson, Dr. Stone and of course Marty McFly, how can you not like Michael J. Fox? ” - joetufano882
 
12.
Matt Damon
Matthew Paige Damon was born on October 8, 1970, in Boston, Massachusetts, to Kent Damon, a stockbroker, realtor and tax preparer, and Nancy Carlsson-Paige, an early childhood education professor at Lesley University. Matt has an older brother named Kyle who is now a sculptor. His father is of English and Scottish descent...
“ He has been for the most part very consistent: The Departed, Good Will Hunting, Bourne, Adjustment Bureau, (SPOILER! SPOILER! ) Interstellar and We Bought a Zoo. Matt Damon is the epitome of awesome. ” - joetufano882
 
13.
Ben Affleck
Producer, Argo

His mother, Chris Anne (née Boldt), is a school teacher, and his father, Timothy Byers Affleck, is a social worker; the two are divorced. Ben has a younger brother...
“ Great director, and I also think he's a very good actor. He just needs the right script to work with. Yes he doesn't have a good track record but he has done good performances in his career: Good Will Hunting, Armageddon (I think it's a fun movie), The Town, State of Play, Argo and most recently David Fincher's Gone Girl. As for him playing Batman, I'm still a bit skeptical but I do hope it works out for him. ” - joetufano882
 
14.
Tommy Lee Jones
Tommy Lee Jones was born in San Saba, Texas, the son of Lucille Marie (Scott), a police officer and beauty shop owner, and Clyde C. Jones, who worked on oil fields. Tommy himself worked in underwater construction and on an oil rig. He attended St. Mark's School of Texas, a prestigious prep school for boys in Dallas...
“ He always makes me laugh with the blank stare he usually has from Men in Black, and his performance in Lincoln was terrific and the best he's been in years. ” - joetufano882
 
15.
Samuel L. Jackson
Samuel L. Jackson is an American producer and highly prolific actor, having appeared in over 100 films, including Die Hard with a Vengeance, Unbreakable, Shaft, The 51st State, Black Snake Moan, Snakes on a Plane, and the Star Wars prequel trilogy (1999-2005), as well as the Marvel Cinematic Universe...
“ Samuel L. Jackson has never disappointed. I can listen to him yelling and cursing forever..... well I guess that sounds kinda wrong.... He's still awesome! ” - joetufano882
 
16.
Gary Oldman
Gary Oldman is a talented British born movie actor who played Sid Vicious in Sid & Nancy, Drexl in True Romance, and George Smiley in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. He starred in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and the remake of RoboCop. He is also an English filmmaker, musician and author. Renowned for his "big" acting style...
“ Gary Oldman has made me laugh, cry, root for him, get creeped out by him, scratch my head, etc. His ability to slip into any kind of character still astounds me. You always have my respect Mr. Oldman ” - joetufano882
 
17.
Bruce Willis
Actor and musician Bruce Willis is well known for playing wisecracking or hard-edged characters, often in spectacular action films. Collectively, he has appeared in films that have grossed in excess of $2.5 billion USD, placing him in the top ten stars in terms of box office receipts. Walter Bruce Willis was born on March 19...
“ People may mock him for just going through the motions and basically phoning it in a lot the last 15 years or so, but he was good in Die Hard 4 (yes I like that movie) and Looper where for the first time in a long time he actually did something very heartfelt in his performance. He also showed that in Sixth Sense, The Kid and Unbreakable so I know what he's capable of. But hey, how can you not dig John McClane? The wrong guy in the wrong place at the wrong time ;) ” - joetufano882
 
18.
Bryan Cranston
Bryan Lee Cranston was born on March 7, 1956 in Hollywood, California, to Audrey Peggy Sell, a radio actress, and Joe Cranston, an actor and former amateur boxer.

His maternal grandfather, Tommy Douglas, was a Scottish-born Canadian politician who was a Premier of Saskatchewan for over 17 years and led the national NDP party for almost 10...
“ From what I've seen, not a lot of people give Sutherland enough credit. He's absolutely phenomenal as Jack Bauer, and along with the show's writing is so good at balancing all the complexities of that character. ” - joetufano882
 
20.
Mark Wahlberg
American actor Mark Wahlberg is one of a handful of respected entertainers who successfully made the transition from teen pop idol to acclaimed actor. A Best Supporting Actor Oscar nominee for The Departed who went on to receive positive critical reviews for his performance in The Fighter, Wahlberg also is a solid comedy actor, proven by his starring role in Ted...
“ Gotta give credit where it's due, he's come a long way from being a troublemaker as a kid, to a rap star and now he's one of the best actors in the business. He's unfortunately underused in The Departed: "I'm the guy who does his job, you must be the other guy!" ” - joetufano882
 
21.
Morgan Freeman
With an authoritative voice and calm demeanor, this ever popular American actor has grown into one of the most respected figures in modern US cinema. Morgan was born on June 1, 1937 in Memphis, Tennessee, to Mayme Edna (Revere), a teacher, and Morgan Porterfield Freeman, a barber. The young Freeman...
“ Even if the movie he's in is bad, he's always the bright spot in it. ” - joetufano882
 
22.
Tom Cruise
Actor, Top Gun
In 1976, if you had told fourteen year-old Franciscan seminary student Thomas Cruise Mapother IV that one day in the not too distant future he would be Tom Cruise, one of the top 100 movie stars of all time, he would have probably grinned and told you that his ambition was to join the priesthood. Nonetheless...
“ He is a bit of a bizarre guy, but you can't deny how committed of an actor he is. Those stunts he did in Ghost Protocol in particular were amazing, and that "show me the money!" line is priceless! ” - joetufano882
 
23.
Chris Evans
Christopher Robert Evans began his acting career in typical fashion: performing in school productions and community theater. He was born in Boston, Massachusetts, the son of Lisa (Capuano), who worked at the Concord Youth Theater, and G. Robert Evans III, a dentist. His uncle is congressman Mike Capuano...
“ I have to be honest, I wasn't THAT big a fan of Snowpiercer but outside of Captain America which I think he's done a great job in, check out "Cellular" which came out in 2004. I won't go into too much detail about it, but it's interesting to see him do that kind of character in that movie. ” - joetufano882
 
24.
Chris Hemsworth
Actor, Thor
Chris Hemsworth was born in Melbourne, Australia, to Leonie (van Os), a teacher of English, and Craig Hemsworth, a social-services counselor. His brothers are actors Liam Hemsworth and Luke Hemsworth. He is of Dutch (from his immigrant maternal grandfather), Irish, English, Scottish, and German ancestry. His uncle, by marriage, was Rod Ansell, the bushman who inspired the film Crocodile Dundee...
“ Hemsworth has a bright future in front of him. Of course he's terrific as Thor but his performance as James Hunt in Ron Howard's film "Rush" shows that he is capable of doing more than a comic book character. ” - joetufano882
 
25.
Mark Ruffalo
Mark Ruffalo was born in Kenosha, Wisconsin, to Marie Rose (Hebert), a stylist and hairdresser, and Frank Lawrence Ruffalo, a construction painter. His father's ancestry is Italian, and his mother is of half French-Canadian and half Italian descent. Mark moved with his family to Virginia Beach, Virginia...
“ Bruce Banner/Hulk, Det. Fanning, etc. Not much else I can say except that Mark is the man! ” - joetufano882
 
26.
Michael Caine

He left school at age 15 and took a series of working-class jobs before joining the British army and serving in Korea during the Korean War...
“ Like Morgan Freeman, even in a bad movie Michael Caine is always the bright spot. ” - joetufano882
 
27.
Liam Neeson

Liam worked as a forklift operator for Guinness, truck driver, assistant architect and an amateur boxer. He had originally sought a career as a teacher by attending St...
“ Even in a bad movie he entertains me. Well.... sometimes.... (I'm talking about Phantom Menace). But as far as the good: Oskar Schindler, Ra's Al Ghul and Bryan Mills. I'm sold! ” - joetufano882
 
28.
Hugh Jackman
Hugh Michael Jackman is an Australian actor, singer, multi-instrumentalist, dancer and producer. Jackman has won international recognition for his roles in major films, notably as superhero, period, and romance characters. He is best known for his long-running role as Wolverine in the X-Men film series...
“ The best casting for Wolverine, but has shown his greatness outside of X-Men like Prisoners, The Prestige and Kate & Leopold (yes the movie wasn't that great but he stole the show). I look forward to whatever he does next. ” - joetufano882
 
29.
James Franco
Actor, 127 Hours
Known for his breakthrough starring role on Freaks and Geeks, James Franco was born in Palo Alto, California on April 19, 1978. His mother is Betsy Franco and his father is Douglas Eugene "Doug" Franco who ran a Silicon Valley business. James's mother, a writer, has occasionally acted. Growing up with his two younger brothers...
“ When he's not in the Seth Rogen front, I do think that Franco can really show his greatness as an actor with movies like the original Spider-Man trilogy as Harry Osborn, Scott Smith in "Milk" and Aron Ralston in 127 Hours which he was nominated for an Oscar. ” - joetufano882
 
30.
Denzel Washington

31.
Ewan McGregor

He was raised in Crieff. At age 16, he left Morrison Academy to join the Perth Repertory Theatre. His parents encouraged him to leave school and pursue his acting goals rather than be unhappy...
“ I haven't seen a whole ton of his movies, but his performance in the final lightsaber fight in Revenge of the Sith showed me that he's got it in him. I definitely need to see The Impossible and Moulin Rouge after seeing him in Star Wars. ” - joetufano882
 
32.
Will Smith
Willard Carroll "Will" Smith, Jr. (born September 25, 1968) is an American actor, comedian, producer, rapper, and songwriter. He has enjoyed success in television, film, and music.

“ What a guy! ” - joetufano882
 
33.

34.

His mother was Irish, from County Longford, while his American-born father is of mostly Irish descent...
“ Been trying to catch up on most of his movies like Signs, Ransom and maybe I'll give Mad Max a try but some of the best I've seen him do are the Patriot, Braveheart (FREEDOM!), Lethal Weapon, Passion of the Christ and We Were Soldiers. I do agree that those racial remarks he made were wrong, but I think we've let it go on long enough and should allow him to come back. ” - joetufano882
 
35.
Heath Ledger
When hunky, twenty-year-old heart-throb Heath Ledger first came to the attention of the public in 1999, it was all too easy to tag him as a "pretty boy" and an actor of little depth. He spent several years trying desperately to sway this image, but this was a double-edged sword. His work comprised nineteen films...
“ Arguably his outstanding and iconic performance as The Joker is what sticks out the most in people's minds, but he also proved to be great in other flicks like "A Knight's Tale" and "The Patriot". It's really sad what happened to him, but his work as an actor will never be forgotten. ” - joetufano882
 
36.
Philip Seymour Hoffman
Actor, Capote
Film and stage actor and theater director Philip Seymour Hoffman was born in the Rochester, New York, suburb of Fairport on July 23, 1967. He was the son of Marilyn (Loucks), a lawyer and judge, and Gordon Stowell Hoffman, a Xerox employee, and was mostly of German, Irish, English and Dutch ancestry...
“ Like with Heath Ledger, it's truly sad what happened to him but he'll still be remembered for years to come. I don't have/or haven't seen enough of his movies but some of my favorites he's done are Charlie Wilson's War, MI3, Doubt, Ides of March, Catching Fire and Twister. Find peace on the other side Mr. Hoffman. ” - joetufano882
 
37.
Tom Hardy
With his breakthrough performance as Eames in Christopher Nolan's science fiction thriller Inception, English actor Tom Hardy has been brought to the attention of mainstream audiences worldwide. However, the versatile actor has been steadily working on both stage and screen since his television debut in the miniseries Band of Brothers...
“ First saw him in Band of Brothers, and look how far he's come with Warrior, Dark Knight Rises, The Drop and Locke. Now he's got Mad Max coming up soon. Hope he continues to do great work in the long run! ” - joetufano882
 
38.
Damian Lewis
Actor, Homeland
Damian Lewis was born on February 11, 1971, in St. John's Wood, London, England, to Charlotte Mary (Bowater), from an upper-class background, and J. Watcyn Lewis, a city broker whose own parents were Welsh. He was raised on Abbey Road in London until the age of 8 with his siblings Gareth, William, and Amanda...
“ I've only seen bits and pieces of Homeland, but he's good in it from what I saw. And of course he's terrific as Major Winters. ” - joetufano882
 
39.
Jeremy Renner
Jeremy Lee Renner was born in Modesto, California, the son of Valerie (Tague) and Lee Renner, who managed a bowling alley. After a tumultuous yet happy childhood with his four younger siblings, Renner graduated from Beyer High School and attended Modesto Junior College. He explored several areas of study...
“ His best work in my opinion was The Town and Hurt Locker. Hopefully he'll have more screentime in Age of Ultron. ” - joetufano882
 
40.
Daniel Day-Lewis
Born in London, England, Daniel Michael Blake Day-Lewis is the second child of Cecil Day-Lewis (aka Nicholas Blake) (Poet Laureate of England) and his second wife, Jill Balcon. His maternal grandfather was Sir Michael Balcon, an important figure in the history of British cinema and head of the famous Ealing Studios...
“ Daniel Day-Lewis has never ceased to impress me. ” - joetufano882
 
41.
Brad Pitt
An actor and producer known as much for his versatility as he is for his handsome face, Golden Globe-winner Brad Pitt's most widely recognized role may be Tyler Durden in Fight Club. However, his portrayals of Billy Beane in Moneyball, and Rusty Ryan in the remake of Ocean's Eleven and its sequels, also loom large in his filmography...
“ Se7en, Fight Club, Fury, Moneyball, Inglourious Basterds, Snatch, Troy, Ocean's Eleven and his brief part in 12 Years a Slave. He may be a big movie star, but you can't deny how good he is at what he does! ” - joetufano882
 
42.
Sylvester Stallone
Actor, Rocky
This athletically built, dark-haired American actor/screenwriter/director may never be mentioned by old-school film critics in the same breath as, say, Richard Burton or Alec Guinness; however, movie fans worldwide have been flocking to see Stallone's films for over 30 years, making "Sly" one of Hollywood's biggest-ever box office draws...
“ Yo Sly! You're all heart and you always will be! ” - joetufano882
 
43.
Matthew McConaughey
American actor and producer Matthew David McConaughey was born in Uvalde, Texas. His mother, Mary Kathleen (McCabe), is a substitute school teacher originally from New Jersey. His father, James Donald McConaughey, was a Mississippi-born gas station owner who ran an oil pipe supply business. He is of Irish...
“ Even when he was doing those stupid comedies, I always respected the guy as an actor because there were a few scenes in those movies that showed his potential. Now that he's moved away from those flicks, he's come a long way and showed the world that he's got a few more tricks up his sleeve. ” - joetufano882
 
44.
Michael Fassbender
Michael Fassbender was born in Heidelberg, Germany, to a German father, Josef, and an Irish mother, Adele (originally from Larne, County Antrim, in Northern Ireland). Michael was raised in the town of Killarney, Co. Kerry, in south-west Ireland, where his family moved to when he was two years old. His parents ran a restaurant (his father is a chef)...
“ First noticed him in Band of Brothers as Pvt Christenson, and I've also seen him as Magneto in First Class and Days of Future Past, Lt. Archie Hicox in Inglourious Basterds and gave an Oscar worthy performance as Epps in 12 Years a Slave. I want to check out more of this guy's work because he is damn good at what he does! ” - joetufano882
 
45.
James McAvoy
McAvoy was born on 21 April 1979 in Glasgow, Scotland, to Elizabeth (née Johnstone), a nurse, and James McAvoy senior, a bus driver. He was raised on a housing estate in Drumchapel, Glasgow by his maternal grandparents (James, a butcher, and Mary), after his parents divorced when James was 7. He went to St Thomas Aquinas Secondary in Jordanhill...
“ After seeing him in X-Men, I need to check out more of his movies. He's a force to be reckoned with for sure! ” - joetufano882
 
46.
Andy Serkis
Andrew Clement G. Serkis was born April 20, 1964, in Ruislip Manor, West London, England. He has three sisters and a brother. His father, Clement Serkis, an ethnic Armenian whose original family surname was "Serkissian", was a Medical Doctor working abroad, in Iraq; the Serkis family spent a lot of time traveling around the Middle East...
“ The master of motion capture work. Gollum in LOTR and the Hobbit, King Kong and Caesar in Planet of the Apes. Of course he's done live action acting roles which he's proven to be great in also like "The Prestige", but his work on motion capture acting is INCREDIBLE! Caesar is probably my favorite role that he's done in all of his career. ” - joetufano882
 
47.
Robin Williams
Robin McLaurin Williams was born on Saturday, July 21st, 1951, in Chicago, Illinois, a great-great-grandson of Mississippi Governor and Senator, Anselm J. McLaurin. His mother, Laurie McLaurin (née Janin), was a former model from Mississippi, and his father, Robert Fitzgerald Williams, was a Ford Motor Company executive from Indiana...
“ Not only a comedic genius, but he proved to be a very versatile performer with dramatic roles like Sean Maguire in "Good Will Hunting". I'll never forget watching his movies growing up, and the heart and dedication he brought to the characters he played. I hope you have found peace on the other side Mr. Williams... ” - joetufano882
 
48.
“ Okay he's mostly known for his work in the video game front, but that medium can be considered art also. His performance as Sgt. Matt Baker (which I find it interesting that Troy Baker shares the same last name with that character) in the Brothers in Arms series is where I first noticed him. He has done other voice acting in the last few years look Booker DeWitt in Bioshock Infinite (which I haven't played yet) and the Joker in Batman: Arkham Origins and now his best performance in my opinion is Joel in "The Last of Us". Now I've heard he'll be appearing in Uncharted 4: A Thief's End? Can't wait! :) ” - joetufano882
 
49.
Logan Lerman
One of today's leading talents across both independent and mainstream film, Logan Lerman is an immensely talented actor who takes on challenging roles and brings dynamic characters to life on screen. Logan was born in Beverly Hills, to a Jewish family. His parents are Lisa (Goldman), who worked as his manager...
“ Never seen the Percy Jackson movies, but I first noticed Logan Lerman in 3:10 to Yuma as Christian Bale's oldest son William, and then he appeared in Perks of Being a Wallflower and most recently David Ayer's Fury. I have a feeling this kid is going places... ” - joetufano882
