DiCaprio is the man right now. He's doing some great stuff these days. His J.Edgar role reminds me of Orson Welles in Citizen Kane.

The Academy does not think so ...

I agree so far with most of the list except Bogart is far too low. He is top 15. Also is theater being taken into consideration for this list as a primary criteria or just additional criteria for tie breakers like iconic status in the guitar thread? Despite what you think Pave or your dislike of Bogart, he, like Stewart, has some of the most iconic roles in all of film history, and was the most popular actor in the world at his peak, and though not the most acclaimed, pretty damn acclaimed. He definitely had tons of acting talent and great ability to display and present pathos and be a suave and riveting masculine hero. His influence and respect in the field is among the best, and has had tons of nominations and worldwide respect for his classic roles in tons of films that are often considered 'the greatest'. He's not top 10, and he's no De Niro, Pacino, Nicholson or Hoffman, but I think 24 is way too low, I cannot see him below some of the actors in the 16-20 area. What does everyone else think on Bogart's position? Before you ask, I know all the actors in the current top 20 and am quite familiar with most of their work, if not for some nearly all of it.

my list from a few pages back is a different list that is for theatre, film and television. not just film. and its primarily concerned with acclaim within the acting community, as opposed to iconic status or mainstream popularity (although those are both somewhat important)

This list is pretty good ... Just need some changes, but the names are alright.
Maybe DDL x Tom Hanks case is the most debatable. Chaplin x DeNiro/Pacino.
Morgan Freeman should be in the top 40. Add Jim Carrey too.

Yes, I think DDL should drop into the 20-30 field, he should be close to Hanks though.

Great actor but not top ten ever imo, top 20 would be fairer for him.

Yeah, DDL above Mifune and O'Toole is kind of messed up. Definitely top 15 though.

I think that DeNiro/Pacino should be above Chaplin, and make a top 3 with Brando.

Chaplin's influence on comic acting cannot be understated, but I think De Niro is, by this point, a better fit for the #2 spot. I'm leaning towards Charlie staying in the top 3 though.
