Happy to see the inclusion of Maximilian Schell!!
But dude...Ed Harris is listed and Glengarry Glenn Ross under his performances isn't!!!??

Wow... so many great actors... I wonder who you're going to include in the top 40. (It seems like you're running out of options!)

@Aditya: Harris was another one that had a lot that I couldn't settle between. That was one that I was strongly considering.

@Nick: You'd be surprised how many truly great actors there are. You will see.... :P Thanks for reading!
