<![CDATA[Ranker: Recent People Lists]]> http://www.ranker.com/list-of//people http://www.ranker.com/img/skin2/logo.gif Most Viewed Lists on Ranker http://www.ranker.com/list-of//people <![CDATA[Actors Nobody Cares About Anymore]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/actors-nobody-cares-about-anymore/ranker-celebrities
Some of the greatest actors of all time have, in recent days, turned into a bunch of washed-up hacks that would be somehow become more relevant for receiving a Razzie nomination (or seven). No one debates that these actors have made huge contributions to cinema (many of them appearing in the best movies ever made), but recently they've become big stars in big flops. Need examples? Will Smith in After Earth. Harrison Ford in Cowboys & Aliens. K-19: The Widowmaker. Morning Glory. Just take anything starting with "starring Harrison Ford," and there's a good chance it'll stick on that list.

These has been actors once delighted audiences and now revile them. They're funny actors who made dramas and then weren't funny anymore (Jim Carrey); serious actors who starred in comedies and then tried to keep the joke going (Robert De Niro); and actors who ruined their credibility by being constant tabloid fodder (Angelina Jolie). Whatever the reason, these once great actors have become box office kryptonite and should no longer be commanding the multi-million dollar contracts of the highest paid celebrities in the world.

Which actors are no longer relevant in Hollywood? Which actresses are past their prime? When did big name celebrities become irrelevant? This list of actors who are no longer big celebrities is here to provide users a chance to vote for the celebrities no one cares about anymore. If you think there's a celebrity who has faded from the spotlight and isn't on the list, make sure to add them so other users can remember a time when people cared about the comedic stylings of people like Eddie Murphy (R.I.P., funny man).

<![CDATA[Greatest Goalkeepers of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/greatest-goalkeepers-of-all-time/valdimar
Who's the greatest goalkeeper to ever play the beautiful game? 

Strikers much of the glory, but the foundation of many soccer teams is built on the strength of having an outstanding goalkeeper. The best goalies are the biggest difference makers in soccer. They can help cover the warts of an average team by their ability to prevent other teams from scoring, which gives their team the best possible chance at winning. After all, if a great goalie can prevent a team from scoring, then their team has a great shot of scratching out the one goal necessary to win a match or even a competition. The best goalies can literally save the day for their team, especially during high pressure moments like breakaways and penalty kicks. The best soccer goalies often times are taken for granted because of their steadiness and the stability they provide for a team's defense. 

The best soccer goalies can literally elevate their teams. Real Madrid's Iker Casillas, Chelsea's Petr Cech and former Manchester United keeper Edwin van der Sar are all considered the best goalies of the past few decades and their clubs have the trophies to prove it. Gordon Banks is long considered one of the best goalies in the history of the game. Banks is revered in his native England due to his contributions to the 1966 World Cup winning squad, the country's only title in the world's biggest competition. 

Vote for the goalie who you consider to be the best of all time. There are plenty of solid choices here, so you really can't go wrong.

<![CDATA[The Best Actors in Film History]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/best-actors
The best actors ever are ranked here in this list of the best actors in film history. These are the greatest actors ever to appear on the silver screen - male only (to vote on both genders, check out this list of the greatest film actors and actresses). These gentlemen were part of some of the greatest movies of all time (or were perhaps the reason they were the best movies ever), with countless Academy Awards between them.

What are the qualities of the best actors of all time? Is it the raw emotion they show, the parts they choose, their acting methods, or simply their effortless charm and charisma? There's no denying some of these amazing actors belong on the list of the hottest male celebrities, but behind the 1000 watt smiles lies the talent that defines generations of actors.

Who is the best actor of all time? Is it a classic actor like Marlon Brando, a comedic genius like Charlie Chaplin, a double-threat like Clint Eastwood, or a method actor like Daniel Day Lewis? There are so many choices for the greatest movie actor ever that you may have a hard time choosing just one (although you can vote for as many of the actors on this list of the greatest actors ever as you'd like). If your favorite leading man isn't on the list, make sure to add him so others can vote for him to receive the title of best actor in film history.

<![CDATA[The Hottest Red Head Actresses]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/hot-red-head-actresses/kittypurr33
A list of hot, red-head actresses, with photos! Call them red-heads, carrot tops, gingers, or blue/blueys, people with red hair have been considered exotic (both positively and negatively) for millennia.

Today, in Great Britain, prejudice towards red-heads still exists with derogatory names such as "ginge" still in use. Positively speaking, red-heads are stereotypically known for their fiery passion in both temperament and sexuality. To be complete, this list includes natural redheads (Isla Fisher) as well as actresses known to regularly dye their hair red (Emma Stone).

<![CDATA[The Druggiest Rock Stars of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/the-druggiest-rock-stars-of-all-time/robert-wabash
Rock stars and drugs go together like football and beer: you could have one without the other and it would still be fun, but you would sense that something was missing. And in the world of rock and roll, musicians being whacked out on drugs and alcohol can be pretty entertaining (right up until they OD, of course. RIP).

This list of rock stars who used drugs was inspired by an article in the OC Weekly that chronicled the six druggiest rock stars of all time, but since we go big at Ranker, we added a few more to the mix. Because honestly, one thing the music world isn't lacking are train wrecks who drink and do drugs.

If you can think of other rock stars that deserve to be on the list that didn't make it in the first wave of qualifications (which basically consist of the ability to frighten one of the nurses at Promises upon checking into rehab), add them. But heed the criteria that your rock star must have a splendid past with drugs.

If you're looking for inspiration in the drugs and rock & roll arena (we'll assume the rest of the Internet can cover the "sex" part), the list of rock stars who have aged the worst is an excellent way to make you feel better about those gray hairs you've been denying. And if you're wondering what's to come of these miscreants of the mic after the drugs have run their course, there's the list of celebrity ODs we should have seen coming.

Courtney Love

Jerry Garcia

<![CDATA[The Greatest Minds of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/greatest-minds-of-all-time/walter-graves
List of the Greatest Minds of All Time, throughout history. This list represents the most influential thinkers across various disciplines, ranked in a way that represents the power of their ideas and their impact on the world. The wisest men and women include top philosophers, physicists, famous poets, thinkers, teachers, physiologists, artists, inventors, engineers, the most irreplaceable CEOs in the world, economists and politicians and those whose talents span across many fields of study.

This list takes a historic perspective, so the greatest thinkers who are included on this list come from many different eras. The greatest minds of the 21st century may be quite different from great geniuses from the distant past, but each person should be judged within the context of the time that they were living. For example, inventing a new type of telephone in 2013 would not qualify one as "the most brilliant mind of all time," but in 1876 when Alexander Graham Bell first patented the telephone, it was an act of genius not seen before.
