Top 50 Actors 2013
In this article there will be a list of the 50 best actors of the 21st Century and I will list their movies from their first to their latest. I will also include a review of what I believe to be their best movie they have starred in during the 21st Century.
1. Matt Damon
The actor with far too much talent, from the family man to the lonely CIA super spy, he has done it all and pleased audiences worldwide.
No 1 Movie- The Bourne Identity- CIA asset working for tread stone hired and trained to kill the targets as given by his superiors. It all go's wrong for Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) when he is shot and drifts across the sea where he is picked up by fisherman. The target is alive and Jason is suffering from memory loss, he has no idea who he is or what he was. He has gone AWOL for months and the CIA believe that he is working for a foreign organisation and with this in mind they decide to put the hit on Jason. Luck would have it that Jason still has his skills in the field of killing and starts on his journey to find out who he is. It soon comes clear to Jason, just what he might be and what he does for a living.

2. Liam Neeson
The actor with the god like voice and the acting performances to be recognised by those who barely watch movies.
No 1 Movie- Taken- When Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) daughter is kidnapped in Paris is goes to the ends of the earth to get her back. He fears neither law or criminal when he goes in pursuit of the men who have taken his daughter, the problem is only worsened by the fact that he only has 18 hours to get her back before it would be too late.

3. Christian Bale
Most adaptable actor in my mind and one of the most dedicated. He has become some of the most anticipated roles and he has pulled them off with perfection.
No 1 Movie- Batman begins- Before Batman rises we first see the life of Bruce Wayne before he becomes the hero. After the killing of Bruces parents he goes off the edge and wants revenge but instead he finds justice taking its course but not though the law system. Bruce leaves his life as a billionaire and travels to some of the poorest countries in the world and he is found by a man who trains him to fight like a ninja. After his training he returns to the US and takes back from where he left off as a billionaire and this time he takes matters into his own hands to bring justice to Gotham City.

4. Will Smith
From the humorous roles to the serious roles we all have our favourite movies when it comes to Will Smith. His movies just keep coming and they just keep getting better.
No 1 Movie- Men in black- When the aliens turn up on planet earth, men in black are on the case in checking that they are here legally. Any alien with unauthorised landing on earth are to be killed or sent back to their home planet. The police deal with the laws regarding people and the men in black deal with the laws regarding aliens.

5. Leonardo DiCaprio
This particular actor has given performances of a lifetime over and over again and I find it hard to pick a favourite movie which he has done.
No 1 Movie- Shutter Island- The film leaves you guessing from the very beginning on the conclusion which we are to find out. Teddy Daniels is a US Marshal in 1954 and he is investigating the disappearance of a killer from a hospital for the criminally insane. The identity of the killer is so far from belief that you could not guess the truth even if you wished to. I love the movie and the conclusion for this movie was so unsuspecting and the acting was utterly superb I could not even describe the quality of this movie.
The Great Gatsby (2013), Django Unchained (2012), J Edgar (2011), Inception (2010), Shutter Island (2010), Revolutionary road (2008), Body of lies (2008), Blood diamond (2006), The Departed (2006), The Aviator (2004), Gangs of New York (2002), Catch me if you can (2002), Don's Plum (2001), The Beach (2000), Celebrity (1998), The Man in the iron mask (1998), Titanic (1997), Marvin's room (1996), Romeo and Juliet (1996), Total Eclipse (1995), The Basketball diaries (1995), The quick and the dead (1995), What's eating Gilbert Grape (1993), This boys life (1993), Poison Ivy (1992), Critters 3 (1991).
6. Tom Cruise
Some feel that Tom's movies are overrated but in my opinion they are some of the best movies out there. From mission impossible which brought Tom's skills as an actor to the surface and he played the job as the spy very well. A more later movie from Tom's collection would be the last samurai and feel that the performance which he brought centre stage in this movie was unforgettable and made for a great movie. Overall I feel that he is a superb actor and very talented.
No 1 Movie- Collateral- A hitman with the unforeseen transport being a taxi in New York. Within a short time Vincent (Tom Cruise) turns Max's (Jamie Foxx) life into a complete mess when he steps into his cab. Vincent is a hitman and wants to use Max's taxi as transport to take him to the spots where the hits locations are. Vincent finds this difficult as Max isn't ready to take part in this violence and wants out at every chance he gets.

7. Bradley Cooper
Its hard to say whether or not he suits the serious roles or the funny roles best because all I seem to see is excellence with both. A talented actor on the screens and it seems he's only getting bigger in Hollywood and it is very well deserved.
No 1 Movie- The Hangover- When four friends go to Las Vegas on a stag night things soon go wrong when the grooms men is nowhere to be found come morning on his wedding day. When the three friends, Phil, Stu and Alan go in search for there friend the grooms men Doug, they find that the most strangest occurrences happened on the night prior to the awakening when they woke up too hung over to remember what had happened.

8. Robert Downey Jr.
A very funny man with a serious yet harshly hilarious performance which he brings to his movies and I feel that after the release of Iron man I felt potential for this actor. With the later release of Sherlock Holmes I was amazed by the performance given by Robert and the talent on screen was phenomenal.
No 1 Movie- Iron man- Tony Stark is a billionaire who owns a weapons manufacturing business and sells missiles/weapons to the US army. When Tony is kidnapped in Iraq after showing an example of his new missile he is forced to build a missile for them but has other plans in mind. Tony builds a suit which he will wear and has the abilities to offer protection from oncoming bullets, can shoot missiles, a flaming torch and can fly. Tony is successful in building the suit and uses it to escape the cap where he is held captive and returns to the US where he builds a similar suit, yet this time he has the money and equipment he needs. He builds the suit to enable complete mobility and allows him to fly, shoot missile/bullets and offer super strength. Tony is betrayed by Obadiah who he works with and becomes an enemy in which he must defeat.

9. Daniel Craig
Its the spy of the century and the most realistic and serious bond we have seen yet. It is due to the Bond role which was performed by Daniel which makes him one of my favourite actors as he played the role perfectly.
No 1 Movie- James Bond, Casino Royale- James Bond must serve his country and protect its people from any threat which is brought towards your majesty's country. I enjoyed this film and feel that it is the best Bond movie ever made because of the superb acting by Daniel Craig.

10. Russell Crowe
The talent behind Russell is incredible and the movies show this, especially with his performance in Gladiator. A great actor with a lot of talent and lot of movies, all with a great presence.
No 1 Movie- Gladiator- The Roman games come to surface in this incredible movie with so much emotion. The fight scenes and the power behind the performances were powerful and I feel that this movie will be one to stand the test of time.

11. Hugh Jackman
The man with the claws, he is a very talented actor on stage and behind the screens. The role he took as wolverine in x-men made his career and gave people a reason to remember his name. All that must be said is, what masterpiece of a movie will he star in next.
No 1 Movie- X-Men- The Mutants are here and they have a presence on earth that is known yet hated by all of the humans. Professor X takes in young mutants to give them an education that will not deny their gifts, and he offers them the path of good to live in peace with their powers.

13. Jake Gyllenhaal
From the action to the drama, it is my belief that his acting has produced some of the best movies out there. A talented man and a popular actor worldwide.
No 1 Movie- The Day after tomorrow- When the weather takes a turn for the worst in the world everyone panics and the sea rises swarming New York. The Sea freezes over and survivors are trapped in buildings with limited food and water. As disaster movies go, this is probably the best I have ever seen.

15. Gerard Butler
The Scottish dream actor, romancing woman everywhere with his charms and what a good actor. He's played the action star, he's played the romancer and he has played the funny man so I guess he has done it all.
No 1 Movie- 300- Blood, gore and the legendary battle of 300 men fighting an endless amount of Persian soldiers from taking Greece and enslaving King Leonidas people. This battle went down in history for a reason, and this movie allows us to get a glimpse of the raw power of King Leonidas and his 300 soldiers who went to battle.

20. Keanu Reeves
I believe that Keanu's movies have had a great impact in Hollywood as The Matrix made a serious change within the Sci Fi world with its slow motion and impacting image on the look of the parallel universe. I also enjoyed speed with the lighthearted humour and this was the first movie which I had seen from Keanu which showed real potential for his acting in Hollywood.
No 1 Movie- The Matrix Revolutions- The world is not quite what we believe it to be as reality is in true fact merely a dream. Neo must go into this dream world which is set up by the alien machines and fight them with his unique abilities in order to save mankind.

21. Jason Statham
The action hero of the century with his tough voice, walk, and gestures which make even the tough guys sweat. He is a good actor with more movies produced in the last few years than I can recall watching. The perfect fitting for a tough guy role in the movies and he has hit Hollywood front on with the action movies.
No 1 Movie- The Transporter- The world isn't perfect but the Transporter is from the car to the suit, all is perfect. When the package needs moving from location to location they call the transporter with his reputation for success.

22. Johnny Depp
The hilarious family man, crazy man, serious man and dangerous man, it has even been known to see a combination of a few of these. He is a great actor on screen and an inspirational actor on screen and off screen.
No 1 Movie- Pirates of the Caribbean, curse of the black pearl- When Jack sparrow turns up in town the military soon arrest him for being a pirate and with his escape starts the adventure of a life time.

23. Sam Worthington
A killer in the movies, from the terminator to Avatar, he has starred in some of the blockbusters of the century. A powerful actor with the emotions to take him all the way in Hollywood.

24. Orlando Bloom
A heart breaker with the ladies and an emotional actor capturing the essence of emotion with the roles he plays. A great actor and starred as Legolas in one of my favourite movies of all time, The Lord of the Rings.
No 1 Movie- The Lord of the Rings, The Fellowship of the ring- Middle earth is under threat from being taken over by darkness. The one ring must be destroyed and thrown into the lava of mount doom and Frodo volunteers along with others to under take this treacherous task.

25. Edward Norton
The Hulk, Tyler from fight club and these are just a few of the amazing roles which I witnessed Edward star as in his career to date. An actor who captures the true seriousness of the roles he plays and pulls off even the trickier characters.
No 1 Movie- The Incredible Hulk- When Bruce turns into the Hulk he can not control himself and the Hulk goes on a disastrous rampage. With the General chasing Bruce/Hulk he must stay one step ahead whilst he tries to cure this problem and get rid of the Hulk from himself.

26. Jeremy Renner
Tough guy to the end as he stars as Aaron cross in the Bourne Legacy and James Coughlin in The Town and these are just to name a few. I believe that we will see a lot more of Jeremy in the future and it is exciting to see what is coming next with this actor.
No 1 Movie- The Town- Stealing from banks is a professionals game and it is just that, in this hard hitting movie about the Boston bank robberies.

27. Henry Cavill
The superman and the demi god from the Immortals in two of my favourite movies from this century and such powerful roles to play. Henry played these roles with nothing less than brilliance and the energy given from these movies was epic.
No 1 Movie- Man of steel- Superman rises as earth becomes in need of a super hero who has the power to stop forces which men cannot.

28. Jude Law
The seriousness and the charming English accent brings Jude Law to the front of your mind when you think of such movies as Sherlock Holmes and Alfie. A talented actor and the well suited actor for the role as Dr Watson in Sherlock Holmes.
No 1 Movie- Sherlock Holmes- Sherlock Holmes aims to solve the complex crimes which take place along with Doctor Watson's assistance with the case's.

29. Chris Hemsworth
The superhero with an attitude like never before with Thor in the ever popular Thor movie. I am impressed by the light hearted humour which Chris brought to the role as Thor. But Chris is by no means a one trick pony, as he shone as the hunter in Snow White and the huntsman and I must say that he was underpaid for that role in particular as he did a superb job.
No 1 Movie- Thor- When Thor is vanished to earth for betraying his father for causing trouble with an opposing force, Thor must learn to become a worthy king before he will regain his power.

30. Seth Rogen
The man with the unforgettable laugh and possibly the only laugh to ever make me laugh. His movies have brought a new meaning to the comedies with the action, shoot outs and the ever popular Mariana smoking.
No 1 Movie- Pineapple express- Dale and Saul find themselves on the run from hitmen after they witness the dealers boss murder someone.

31. James Franco
A great actor and since he moved away from the role in Spider man as Peter Parker's best friend and into the comedies I believe that we have seen a new light to James.

32. Dwayne Johnson
The ultimate badass for the 21st Century in the movies and has brought a new image for the tough guys on the screen. We have seen the action movies, the family movies and the comedies with Dwayne and I feel that there is so much more to come from Dwayne Johnson.
No 1 Movie- Fast and furious five (aka Fast Five)- Dominic, Brian and Mia are are on the run in Brazil avoiding the U.S Government at all costs as Luke Hobbs tracks them down with his elite team hired by the FBI.

33. Heath Ledger
The most loveable, most patriotic and the most dangerous actor on the screen. The role that Heath took on playing The Joker in The Dark Knight was one of the most powerful roles I have ever experienced on the screens.
No 1 Movie- The Dark Knight (Batman)- A new Villain is in Gotham city and he is more powerful and stronger than any Villain we have ever seen in Gotham city. Batman finally meets his match with Bane who is awfully powerful and violent, with one thing in mind, bringing down Gotham city.

34. Vince Vaughn
The funny man with the chattiest personality I have ever seen in the movies. This man could talk his way into or out of any situation and the acting is great.

35. Shia Labeouf
His acting has a lot of potential and I loved the role in played in Transformers and I found the role to be funny with a serious aspect to it which made the film entertaining and realistic.
No 1 Movie- The Transformers- When Transformers turn up on earth looking for the Decepticons to stop them at their attemps to take over earth and enslave mankind. With the help of Sam Witwicky the Autobots (good transformers), work towards stopping the Decepticons (bad transformers).

A personality to rare within Hollywood and Kevin's movies have impacted in such a way that makes his movies memorable.

37. Ethan Hawke
Training day is one of my favourite movies and the role he played was difficult and there was a lot of emotion within the role which Ethan pulled off spectacularly. Other movies from Ethan have been great including Sinister which has to be one of the scariest movies I have seen.
No 1 Movie- Training day- Detective Alonzo Harris is training Jake Hoyt to become a detective and things become very illegal on the ride around the city with the under goings which Alonzo is involved with.

38. Tom Hardy
A hidden gem within Hollywood with his role as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises as this was a highly anticipated movie and the villain was vital for the success of the movie. Tom played the role as Bane very well and made me truly believe in the character, and this was especially difficult to achieve with the bar set so high in the previous Batman movie.
No 1 Movie- The Dark Knight Rises- A new Villain is in Gotham city and he is more powerful and stronger than any Villain we have ever seen in Gotham city. Batman finally meets his match with Bane who is awfully powerful and violent, with one thing in mind, bringing down Gotham city.

39. Morgan Freeman
I could not imagine watching a thriller or crime drama without Morgan with his talent on the screen and his voice is so memorable and unique.
No 1 Movie- Seven- A serial killer is on the loose and the detectives must find him and bring him down as the murders become more and more brutal.

40. Ian Mckellen
In his role playing Gandalf in Lord of the rings, it is hard to describe how great Ian is as an actor. Gandalf for me is one of the best characters I have ever witnessed in the movies and this is all thanks to Ian's talent as an actor. Another movie which hit the screens with raw power was X-Men and Ian played the role of Magneto and this was again, an unforgettable character.
No 1 Movie- The Lord of the rings, the fellowship of the ring- Middle earth is under threat from being taken over by darkness. The one ring must be destroyed and thrown into the lava of mount doom and Frodo volunteers along with others to under take this treacherous task.

41. Jonah Hill
After the release of super bad I saw for the first time just how funny the younger teenage actors can be. He is a hilarious actor and his movies seem to only get better but for me Super bad was one of the funniest movies to ever get released.
No 1 Movie- Superbad- Its the end of high school, Seth, Evan and Fogell are ready to party and live it up before they go to College. Drinking, partying and complete mayhem occur and the guys handle it all hilariously.

42. Clive Owen
The English are made proud by the intense performance given by Clive over and over again. The talent by Clive is indescribable and the movies are always performed and brought to the screens with perfection.
No 1 Movie- Shoot em up- When a pregnant woman dies after giving birth Smith must fight to ensure the safety and well being of the newborn baby. Plenty of shoot outs occur when Hertz and his henchmen turn up on scene to attempt at killing the baby.

43. Al Pacino
The unforgettable movie, Scarface brought the gangsters life to surface with an appealing look at the life of a growing gangster. Al has brought an experience to the movies which will last a life time and the quality of his movies are always the highest which they could possibly be.
No 1 Movie- Righteous kill- A couple of detectives who have been in the job for a long time have also been partners in the job for a long time except one of them is a bent cop, whilst the other is a straight cop. This causes problems when one tries to bring the other to justice for their hidden crimes and isn't willing to go to jail.

44. Jeff Bridges
The voice alone makes Jeff's movies worth seeing as it is so serious and all so wise that you know you are watching and listening to the expert. His movies are entertaining and even now in the 21st Century we are seeing some top class movies starring Jeff Bridges and his work.
No 1 Movie- True Grit (Remake)- A U.S.Marshal is hired by a young girl to track and kill those responsible for the killing of her father. Accompanied by a U.S. ranger they set of on their journey to bring justice and kill those responsible for the death of the father.

45. Harrison Ford
A list of movies have starred Harrison over the years and they are for lack of a better word fantastic and I especially enjoyed Air force one. I can no longer imagine any other actor playing the President other than Harrison since I saw Air force one, as it was such a great movie.
No 1 Movie- Air force one- The presidents plane, air force one is hijacked by Russian terrorists and the President is aboard the plane but managers to avoid detection. The President is a Vietnam Veteran and he fights the terrorists aboard the plane to take back control and save the lives of the hostages aboard the plane.

46. Josh Brolin
Great acting with appearances in some of the best movies of the 21st Century including No Country for old men and Gangster squad. His performance in No Country for old men makes Josh one of my favourite actors.
No 1 Movie- No Country for old men- A serial killer is among the County and with a lot happening, he is in the zone hunting and killing as he moves along trying to get the money he was hired to collect.

47. Chris Evans
A shoe in for the superhero roles and this has been the case for Chris, having starred as Captain America in Captain America the movie and Johnny Storm in Fantastic Four. A good actor and I found the role he played as Captain America to be a great movie and one of the best Marvel movies.
No 1 Movie- Captain America- When the U.S feels they are under threat of losing world war 2 due to a new enemy bringing a dangerous threat to the Country, scientists come up with a new power. When they have chosen an individual they become Captain America, the strongest and fastest human on the planet as well as being the first avenger.

48. Brendan Fraser
The Mummy found success as a movie with the help of Brendan and this movie for me was the best family movie I have ever seen. An entertaining actor with a lot of talent and suits perfectly with the family movie roles.
No 1 Movie- The Mummy- When the curse of the Mummy is brought alive it must be killed and put back to its original state in death.

49. Tommy Lee Jones
Such a serious actor and it is very rare to witness a smile from Tommy but his movies are good and the acting is great.
No 1 Movie- Men in black 3- When the aliens land on earth, they must first of all register and if they are on earth illegally then the men in black step in to exterminate the problem. Forced with threats from aliens to destroy earth, they must work to stop the threat of invasion.

50. Anton Yelchin
A surprising contender to Hollywood and the role he played in Terminator Salvation, I thought to be superb and to add to this success I found that the remake of Fright Night which he starred in was also a great movie.
No 1 Movie- Terminator Salvation- When mankind struggles for survival when the machines take over the world, John Connors must lead the rebellion to push the machines back and destroy them.
