i actually think leo is a pretty good actor. he was highly regarded before titanic and in the past 10/15 years has built up a really interesting body of work.

Sam Rockwell is always excellent, and capable of playing many different types of role.

I don't think I've ever been disappointed by Jake Gyllenhaal. Even when he's been in a film that I don't particularly like much - I find the actor himself incredibly intense and watchable.

Daniel Day-Lewis
Michael Fassbender
Christian Bale
Leonardo DiCaprio
Tom Hardy
Idris Elba
Gary Oldman (probably the best character actor of our generation)
Tom Hanks (still going strong)
Joaquin Phoenix (not one of my favourites but he's excellent at playing villains and crazies)

Then there are established greats like De Niro, Pacino, Denzel Washinton and Russell Crowe who are still working though I think their best work is far behind them.

There are many good actors working today. How on earth do you pick the best? Nobody seems to have mentioned Johnny Depp or Robert DeNiro yet. Any of the names mentioned so far qualifies as a good actor - even if some of them appear to be past their best. Does it specify that a good actor has to be male, or are we being pedantic and referring to the female ones as actresses? If not, we could add Kate Winslet and Jennifer Lawrence to the list. There again, how many of them (if any) are better than Ian McKellen, Derek Jacobi., Maggie Smith or Judi Dench? Old they may be; worn out, they most certainly are not - and they are all still working.

I think Leo De Caprio is one of the most overrated actors ever. I know few will agree, but I can't take him seriously in any movie. He was awful in Titanic ( but then, so was everyone else) he didn't convince me at all that he was Howard Hughes either, and his other films show him doing the same kind of performance, like he's doing a college play or something.


I also have never found him as attractive as he's made out to be, especially these days he looks like an evil bloated baby

Gary Oldman is King and Fassbender is heir to the throne

Penelope Cruz is a good actress that has defined herself.

He was brilliant in Wolf Of Wall Street. His performances really depend on the director for me, and Scorsese seems to bring out the best in him.

Christian Bale
Edward Norton
John Cusack
Lena Headey
Charlize Theron
Scarlett Johansson
Natalie Portman
Jennifer Lawrence

Go and watch
The Basketball Diaries
Whats Eating Gilbert Grape
This Boys Life

To say he is overrated is plain daft

Nicole Kidman
Ignoring Bewitched and the very bad Grace Kelly film, she has an incredible range of different films and her performances are always different. She has a lot of range. But in terms of australian actresses, she is often overlooked for Cate Blanchett. Cate's amazing but Nicole for me is on another level.

Michael Fassbender is my current favourite. The man has proper acting chops! If only for 'Shame' and his part in '12 Years a Slave'. I'll watch anything he does from now on.

Oscar Isaac - definitely one to look out for in the future.
Benedict Cumberbatch.
Tom Hardy.
Joaquin Phoenix.

I never liked Di Caprio until I saw Blood Diamond. Solid. I have to agree though, he seems like he still needs to grow up to be truly believable.

Jennifer Lawrence in Silver Linings Playbook made me think she has life in her.

Jake Gyllenhall seems to be getting better and better. As does his sister.
