Number one for me is Cheadle. Denzel probably number 2. Doesn't have alot of range but what he can play he does very well similar to Freeman. Elba & Fox would be up there.

In no order:


Denzel Washington (Training day, American Gangster)
Laurence Fishburne (Boyz N Da Hood, Matrix)
Jamie Foxx (Any Given Sunday)
Morgan Freeman (Se7en, Million Dollar Baby)
Forest Whitaker (Last King..., Panic Room)
Will Smith (No "great" movies, but makes them all very watchable)
Cuba Gooding Jr. (though he gets a bad rap because of Snow dogs, Boat Trip, ect. he's still a great actor)

But nooo, a guy of the types of you has to put ****ing "alive" there. Great going, I'm amazed.

...and he still didnt include Will Smith..

Anyways, it should go something like this, no order:

Christian Bale
Tom Cruise
Brad Pitt
Johnny Depp
George Clooney
Will Smith
Sean Penn
Denzel Washington
Tom Hanks
Morgan Freeman

Based on longevity of these actors that derives from the fact that they each bring their own uniqueness and a style that keeps us heading for the box office over and over again. From the 80's to now, the named 10 actors dominate majority of our movie experiences and are expected to continue to do so for some time to come....

Terrible list

First off putting Idris Elba a t number 1 is like saying Lebron James is the greatest basketball player of all time. Currently he's great, but all-time?

Second, other than Cheadles you're list has a total of 0 actors more accomplished than OP's list. C'mon man. This is not make a list that makes you look the coolest and most unique.

A list without Robert De Niro and Leo DiCaprio is retarded.

You don't get it do you?

I just listed all the actors from The Wire because that's my favorite show. Now proceed to remove the rake that seems to be stuck in your butthole.

What do I need to get moron? The question was best actors alive, not who's your favorite.
Apparently YOU don't get it.

Because my post obviously wasn't to be taken seriously. Yet you did. Why? Because you are an idiot. But that's the way you were born I guess. You don't suddenly become smart, that's just not for you. So no hard feelings.

Talk about a rake up ones ass

Man you are one piece of work. You love jumping all over my posts when you can criticize me, but get all butthurt when I criticize you.

So I guess if a thread asks who the greatest basketball player of all time I'll just say Lebron and hope people don't take me seriously? Great logic

My post featured actors such as JD Williams and Wood Harris. Anyone with half a brain knew I wasn't being serious.

It would be the equivalent of replying Nikos Galis and Vassilis Spanoulis in the Greatest basketball player thread: everybody except the most idiotic, unintelligent readers instantly knows it's not a serious reply.

But you just don't get it and you never will. Again, no hard feelings: it's something complete out of your control.
