2018 has proved to be the best year for a range of actors, both old and new. Whether that's due to landing multiple roles or starring in the year's biggest blockbusters, some actors are completely nailing it in 2018 and truly making a name for themselves. As a result, they're at the top of their game. How do these actors compare to the 2018's biggest actresses

While we've all had that feeling and even once said, "This will be my year", it doesn't always end up that way. However, some actors really made that happen in 2018. So, who are the top actors of 2018? Starring in lead roles for Avengers: Infinity War and Deadpool 2, Josh Brolin is definitely killing it in 2018. Other popular actors right now in Hollywood include Michael B. Jordan, Dave Bautista, Benedict Cumberbatch, Donald Glover, Chris Pratt, and Alden Ehrenreich.
