As always, this is my very personal choice I had chosen just five and I know I have forgotten many important people here. Sorry but… these are my favorite Top#5 actors in history of cinema: Gene Hackman, Daniel Day-Lewis, Jack Nicholson, Marlon Brando, Michael Caine
1.- Gene Hackman
2 Oscars, 5 Oscar Nominations… I love Unforgiven and Mississippi Burning but… do you remember him in Superman? He was hilarious! My favorite actor? One of the best.

2.- Daniel Day-Lewis
3 Oscars, 5 Oscar Nominations. Born in London, I love Gangs of New York and, overall, There Will Be Blood, maybe his best role and a fantastic movie. If you haven’t watched it, take a look.

3.- Jack Nicholson
3 Oscars. Of course, we all remember him for his role in The Shining and As Good as It Gets. I really love this guy and his NBA team.

4.- Marlon Brando
A legendary actor: The Godfather, Apocalypse Now, On the Waterfront… but I love 1972 film Last Tango in Paris

5.- Michael Caine
A legend! If you haven’t seen it, take a look. I recommend 1972 film Sleuth, directed by Joseph Leo Mankiewicz but he has an incredible filmography. One of the best.

I hope you like the list. I know I have forgotten many important actors but I had to choose. Have a nice day, dear friends.
