Top Ten – My Favorite Actors – Greatest Actors of All Time

854

Jack Nicholson 

Jack Nicholson (born on April 22, 1937), is known from movies like “Anger Management”, “A few Good Men, “Batman”, The Shining” and “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”.

I personally didn’t enjoy his most recent movies, like “The Bucket List”, “Something’s gotta give” or “About Schidt”…. but still I consider him as one of the greatest actors we’ve seen in the big screen. He has won 2 Oscars on “As good as it gets” and “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest ” as best actor in a Leading Role, and 1 Oscar as Best Supporting Role for “Terms of Endearment”. 

 

Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp has been in almost one hundred movies. Widely known from Edward Scissorhands, and the Pirates of the Caribbean movies where he played Jack Sparrow. Some of the must seen movies include “The Ninth Gate” from Polanski, “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” from Terry Gilliam, “Once Upon a Time in Mexico” from Rodriguez and all of Tim Burton’s movies like “Sleepy Hollow”, “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”, “Sweeney Todd”, and “Alice in Wonderland”. Still haven’t won an Oscar, even though it was nominated three times, yet he has a place in our heart.

 

Robert De Niro

Robert De Niro, born on August 17, 1943, has won 2 Oscars and he is widely known for “Taxi Driver” and “Cape Fear”. Some of the must-watch movies include “Awakenings”, “Goodfellas”, “The Untouchables”, “Raging Bull”, “The Deer Hunter”, “The Godfather”, “Mean Streets”, “Casino”, “Ronin”, and “Analyze This”. I didn’t really enjoy his latest movies like “Dirty Grandpa” or “The Intern” but with more than 100 movies in his acting career, we still have a lot to enjoy.

 

Al Pacino 

Al Pacino is one of the greatest actors, yet he has only won one Oscar. Born on April 25, 1940, he is mostly known for Godfather, Serpico and Dick Tracy.  Some must watch movies include, but not limited to, The Devil’s Advocate, S1m0ne, The Merchant of Venice, Donnie Brasco, Carlito’s Way, and Scarface.

 

Robin Williams

Another great actor, with only one Oscar win but hundreds of movies in his filmography. Robin Williams is mostly known for Good Morning Vietnam, Good Will Hunting, and One Hour Photo. If you want to see more from Robin Williams, some movies that worth watching are the following: Mrs. Doubtfire, Hook, The Fisher King, Dead Poets Society, Jumanji, The Birdcage, and Bicentennial Man.

 

Gary Oldman 

Gary Oldman, born on March 21, 1958, is widely known for The Dark Knight and Darkest Hour. He has won 1 Oscars for Darkest Hour for the leading role. With almost 100 hundred movies in his filmography, you can find many movies worth to watch like: Dracula, JFK, State of Grace, Criminal Law, Sid and Nancy, Romeo Is Bleeding, Immortal Beloved, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and the Harry Potter movies. 

 

Harrison Ford

On the other hand, he has been part of many famous movies throughout the years with the most popular being the Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Fugitive and Air Force One. If you love Harrison Ford like us and looking forward to the next Indiana Jones movies, you’ll have to wait until 2021, but still, there are plenty of movies to watch until then like: American Graffiti, Blade Runner, Witness, Frantic, Presumed Innocent, Regarding Henry and the Star Wars movies.
