Acting is one of the most important aspects of a movie as it lends believability to the story while offering both dramatic and emotional depth to a film.

A truly gifted actor is amazing to see in action. They have the ability to make you forget where you are and what you’re doing by drawing you in and convincing you you’re in a different place seeing a drama unfold before your eyes. They take on the essence of different characters seemingly at will. Actors are a dime a dozen. Good actors are hard to find. Great actors are extremely rare, and when you find one, you enjoy their work as much as you can.

The list below is a compilation (ranked in order of liking) of some of the greatest actors in the movie business, who wow audiences with awe-inspiring performances in lead roles even today. To make it to this list, the actor must still be actively making movies and must have peaked as an actor sometime in the last 20 years (hence the omission of Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Jack Nicholson etc).

With a subject as vast as this, someone significant is bound to fall through the compilation cracks. Read on and enjoy!
