Philip Seymour Hoffman > Ian McKellan? :ugh:


Judging purely by their work in film, I think that's about right. Seymour-Hoffman in Capote outweighs most of McKellan's major roles, and Sir Ian was a theatre actor for the most part, so most of his greatness lies there.

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.

I agree with Chaplin's influence, but Pacino is more greater than Chaplin. He has more memorable roles and acclaimed performances.

Erm...City Lights, The Gold Rush, Modern Times, Limelight, The Great Dictator, etc? Either way, your argument is invalid. One can easily find that Chaplin's role in, say, The Great Dictator more memorable than Pacino in, say, The Godfather Part II. Memorability isn't a criterion. Also, I think both have about the same number of acclaimed performances. I'd say the City Lights performance is just about as acclaimed as Pacino's Godfather 2 performance. Plus, Chaplin easily beats Pacino in influence, while acclaim is very close.

Great performances, of course. But I think Pacino is more acclaimed actor.

Oh that's right I did that thing. I agree with most of what people said here. Hanks is too low for sure, DDL could probably drop a few spots. Not out of the top 15 though.

Anyone else agree that Deniro's performance in Taxi Driver is far better than his one in Raging Bull?

I was wondering if Cruise and Pitt may be part of this list.
And DeNiro/Pacino above Chaplin.
