None the less, the guy is brilliant. DiCaprio has also pushed his way to the top too. Not sure who I would put in third spot though.
I read somewhere that DDL takes time between films so as not to overexpose himself. I read that Marlon Brando had told him that "an actor has only so many faces" and to not make too many movies.

It makes sense, and I think its a part of what makes him so believable in all his roles.
