Top 10 Actors in Tv Shows

Updated on October 19, 2012

And The Best Actor Is...

A good Actor is one of the main reasons why you watch sitcoms or other tv shows. You can identify yourself with that person or you just want to be like him and he becomes some kind of your role model. In this top 10 ranking I listed my favorite and in my opinion the best actors in their role.

Check it out and give me your opinion!

#1 Neil Patrick Harris

as Barney Stinson

Barney Stinson, who is played by Neil Patrick Harris, is one of the five main roles in the CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother. Barney is a womanizer, who always wears a suit and has his own opinion on everything. His pick-up strategies are based on his selfmade 'Playbook', which has really weird but often working tactics to get laid. If there is a conflict of opinion Barney always relies on his 'Bro-Code', which is sacred to him, and most of the times he gets what he wants. Barney also uses some phrases, which have become popular, like ' Lengen... wait for it..dary' or ' Suit up'.

So Neil Patrick Harris' plays his role as Barney Stinson perfectly and surely deserves the 1st spot in this best actors ranking.

#2 Will Smith

as Will Smith

Will Smith played himself in the sitcom 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air', which originally aired from 1990-1996 and ended with the 6th season. Will Smith is a kid from the streets, who lives in Philadelphia until his mom realizes that there is no future for him if he grows up in the rough streets of Philly. So she decides to send him to her sister and her husband Vivian & Philipp Banks and their family, who live in Bel-Air and are very rich. So the 17 year old Will goes there, gets everything what he wants and has a bright future. But Will brings also some 'freshness' with him into the 'Banks-Family', so the family gets into a lot of trouble but also a lot of fun.Will's behaviour and his jokes are hilarious,but also sometimes inappropriate. So you can see Will becoming a man after six seasons and it is just funny to watch, because Will Smith plays his role as himself perfectly ( who does not play himself perfectly? ).

Well deserved 2nd spot on this top 10 actors list.

#3 Jim Parsons

as Sheldon Cooper

Jim Parsons plays the genius Sheldon Cooper in the CBS sitcom 'The Big Bang Theory'. Sheldon is one of the actually seven main roles in the series,the most intelligent of the four nerds and he loves to show his intelligence advantage. His IQ amounts 187 and he also possesses an eidetic memory, which makes him smarter than nearly everbody else. His behaviour is just hilarious, because he has nearly no emotions and he always searches for a wright, non-emotional answer, which is not appropriate in all of the situations. His roommate Leonard Hofstadter hates and likes him, because of his behaviour and he also is his best friend. Everybody in this sitcom hates and loves him, because of the way Sheldon is just Sheldon and he does not care what the people think about him and he is just funny to watch. He also has his 'Bazinga' phrase, which has become very popular and has the same meaning as 'I'm just kidding' .

So Jim Parsons gets the 3rd spot on this top 10 actors ranking.

#4 Charlie Sheen

as Charlie Harper

Charlie Sheen played one of the three main roles in the CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men until he was fired, because of inappropriate behaviour, but in that time he played the role of Charlie Harper, he was the funniest and most earning guy in hollywood. Maybe his role was not so hard to play for him, because his real life is like his role and even worse sometimes...

Charlie Harper lives together with his brother Alan Harper and Alans son Jake Harper in his own appartment and has everything he wants. He is a well earning jingle-writer and singer for kids, so he lives his life the way he wants and does whatever he wants. He can choose when he has to work and he is often 'disturbed' by women, because he is the biggest womanizer ever. He has money, looks fine and has the right stragety to convince women to sleep with him. It is really funny to watch and to see what Charlie affords to get laid and how he treats his brother.

So he is ranked 4th on this top 10 list.

#5 Kevin James

as Doug Heffernan

Kevin James played one of the three main roles in 'The King of Queens', which ended with the 9th season in 2007.

His role as Doug Heffernan is really funny, because you can see which problems the married couple Doug and Carrie can have, especially when another person lives in their house, in this case it is Carries father Arthur Spooner. Doug works as an IPS delivery driver and you can see how he handles his life with his wife and his biggest problem Arthur. Arthur is a really strange dad and always does things nobody expects and he is just annoying. But Doug tries to handle everything and it is just hillarious how he does it and which tactics he uses to not confront the problem.

So his role as Doug Heffernan surely is worth the 5th spot on this ranking.

#6 Michael C. Hall

as Dexter

Micheal C. Hall is the producer and also playing the main role of Dexter Morgan in the very popular TV Show "Dexter". When he was 3 years old, he saw his own mother getting butchered right in front of him and he was sitting around in her blood for several hours, before a police officer found him.

Little Dexter didn't remember this brutal act, but as a result of it, he lost his emotions and he developed an urge to kill.

However his adoptive father taught him morals and so he only kills murderers that the system is not able to get to. He works in forensics for the local Police Department as a Blood analyst, which helps him to escape difficult situations and leave no evidence of his crimes behind.

Micheal C. Hall is playing his role perfectly and you really believe that his character is a sick individual, but somehow you can identify with him.

Well deserved 6 spot on this top 10 actors list!

#7 Zach Braff

as Dr. John Dorian

Zach Braff plays the main role Dr. John Dorian , short JD in the series 'Scrubs'. The comedy-drama show ended in 2010 with 9th season and the whole series is about how JD starts and developes his life as a doctor in the Sacred Heart Hospital.Mostly JD's decisions are funny to watch , but he also shares his thoughts with the audience, so that you can imagine how his life has to be and it makes you think about your own life. JD also tries to get in a relationship with Elliot Reid, which ends in a happy and funny marriage.

The whole series is fun to watch, espacially with your girl- or boyfriend, because it is hilarious and also romantic.

So the 7th spot belongs to Zach Braff!

#9 Ashton Kutcher

as Walden Schmidt and Kelso

Ashton Kutcher plays two great series roles. One of his roles is Walden Schmidt in the already listed Two and a Half Men series and as Kelso in 'That 70's Show'. Walden Schmidt is some kind of the new Charlie Harper with better behaviour and better looks. He moves to Charlies old house, so he stays with Alan Harper and his son Jake, and Walden lives Charlies women life.

Ashton Kutchers acting role as Kelso is one of the best roles i have ever seen. Kelso is young guy, who lives with his 5 best friends in Wisconsin and is the dumbest, but also the most attractive of them. He has many relationships and also one with Jacky, who is played by Mila Kunis. You can watch Kelsos developement and how he gets his life done with dumbness, but also his funny behaviour. I can just recommend you to watch this series, it is really great!

So Ashton Kutcher gets the 9th spot on this top 10 actors ranking!
