Well the list is kind of dated as most all of them are dead and gone. But you've certainly hit on some of the greats. But I think it depends on your definition of the top 25 "what"? They are all iconic. But as Jacqueline Drury mentions some of them were great personalities like John Wayne, but not necessarily great actors. (Although Wayne did win an Oscar for "True Grit". I would also take exception to Humphrey Bogart.as a great actor. He's an iconic figure to be sure, and the star of some all time great movies. But Bogart was always Bogart in what ever movie he was in. He didn't have to act. He just needed to be himself and it was great. So again, it depends of your definition of "top 25".

My modern faves are denzel Washington and Meryl Streep as the top two best...of course deniro and pacino and robert Downey and the new comer Rachel mcadams....love her

Niecy C.

A lot of people hate him but I'm going to put Christian Bale at the top of my list for modern actors. I NEVER see Christian Bale when I see him in a role. He just disappears and becomes.

DeLouis EnZo White

I dont hate him...he was a great edition to batman

DeLouis EnZo White

dont forget my boy cary grant and irenne dunn

Luz Lenoir

Bella Lugosi no here?

J. Jim Hayes

Robert De Niro might make the list some day.

John Doe

I think Robin Williams needs to be on that list. Anyone can do drama but comedy you either have it or you don't. You can't learn comedic timing. Robin Williams can do it all. Very dramatic and comical.

Bobby thats absolutely crazyyyyy scary you said that....I am literally watching robin Williams on inside the actors studio as I type this...and I just randomly picked this....wow....I agree tho its just crazy you said that.....wow

Peter Daniels

Robin in Mrs Doubt Fire!..That was the best! Peter Daniels.

I still want to know how you're "billing" this top 25, DeLouis? Is this supposed to be the "Top 25 Greatest Actors of All Time"?? Kirk Douglas is still alive, so it can't be just the ones who are in that big all star actors troupe in Heaven, LOL. But hey, I put my vote in for Robin Williams.... NOT just a comedian. :)

DeLouis EnZo White

Its just the top 25 original actors...not the modern ones cause Michael Douglas and robert deniro and downey jr etc

Michael Joseph DeRosa

Got it, that's what I thought. Well then I think your list should include James Cagney, "you dirty rat", LOL.... actually he never really said that line.

J. Jim Hayes

That's true. A lot of people think he did say that but he never did. It's the same with Casablanca and "Play it again, Sam".

DeLouis EnZo White

Frankly Michael I dont give a damn lol

Michael Joseph DeRosa

All true, but remember... "We'll always have Paris"... UP MUSIC..... ROLL CREDITS... lol

Helise Stamos
