22. Robert DeNiro
Notable Roles: Goodfellas (1990); The Godfather: Part II (1974); Raging Bull (1980); Taxi Driver (1976)
One of the greatest actors of his time, known for his true to life portrayals of violently angry yet severely depressed men. De Niro is a classic New York actor who has starred in some of the greatest films involving the city. His style transforms from role to role, but his bravado carries any character's look and he is equally at home in the lush suiting of The Godfather: Part II as he is in the vintage military garb of Taxi Driver.
