Leonardo DiCaprio has to be number one on this list because he is such a diverse and versatile actor! From his performance in Basketball Diaries, to Titanic, to Inception he has managed to wow us all consistently. He is a very believable actor with a lot of passion for his work.
Christian Bale is one of the finest actors in this industry. He is so talented and he always becomes his roles. He is so believable in the roles he does, he really does know how to nail a part. From Bateman to Batman, he truly is simply amazing.
Tom Cruise, the biggest heartthrob of the industry. Not only does he make our stomach flutter with his underwear dance, he also manages to act just as successfully. He has been around for a while now, and he has created a respective name for himself for his skills in acting.
It is so sad that we have lost this great actor. He is simply phenomenal not only in The Dark Knight (which was according to me, his best role till date. The Joker is still my favorite villain of all time), but also in his other movies. Most of us noticed him in "10 Things I Hate About You" in which he proved himself as an actor to be taken seriously.
Tom Hanks is such a respected actor in this industry. I remember watching Castaway and thinking, wow, he is so believable. Not only in that, but movies like Catch Me If You Can and Forrest Gump are so wonderfully acted by Tom Hanks. Most of the little ones know him as Woody(:
What is there to say about Liam Neeson other than that he is simply amazing. He really does know how to execute with perfection. He is one of the gifted actors Hollywood is lucky to have
Will Smith, no doubt, is the most all-rounded actor ever. From his television days, to The Pursuit of Happyness and Men In Black, he has been truly outstanding in fulfilling his roles. He is definitely someone Hollywood is not taking for granted and never will!
I remember watching Donnie Darko and thinking, man this boy really knows how to act. Few years later in movies like Love and Other Drugs and The Day After Tomorrow, he still is just as great. He really does have a long career ahead of him. He is one rising star.
They either deserve an Oscar, or they deserved their Oscar.
