List Rules Living (male) actors born in or before 1933

The best living actors in their 80s are all seasoned veterans in Hollywood who were born in 1935 or earlier. These men are multiple Academy Award winners, legends on the big screen and small and among the best actors in film history. While not have aged as well as others, in many cases, these Hollywood greats are still active in their old age.

To say that this list of the best actors born in 1935 or earlier is packed with superstars might be an understatement. Names like Sean Connery, Kirk Douglas, William Shatner and Clint Eastwood are among the greatest actors of the 20th century. Add in Dick Van Dyke, Carl Reiner, Michael Caine, Gene Hackman, and Christopher Plummer, and you've named some of the most talented men to ever act in a movie or television show.

But the list doesn't stop there. Actors such as Christopher Lee, James Earl Jones and Robert Duvall might be getting up there in age, but they are showing few signs of slowing down. Those and many other great actors over the age of 80 continue to star in movies and TV shows having not lost a beat with age.
