Not all actors and actresses possess the heart and soul to give their absolute best on television shows. Performing on tv-series is often considered harder than acting on a film. The reason is quite simple. TV shows are long and contain several episodes. On the other hand, we expect a movie to end within 2-3 hours. Television actors get more dialogues and screen time than traditional movie actors. They have to work hard on every episode to make it effective. The more they spend time on the television screens, the more the audience gets connected with them. So, it becomes impossible for them to ignore even the insignificant details about their respective characters and scenes.

Here is the list of the top 10 best Hollywood TV actors of all time! Check it now!

Tom Selleck

Tom Selleck

Tom Selleck was one of the hot guns of the television industry in the 1980s. It was largely because of his amazing performance in Magnum, P.I. You must know him as Monica’s ex-boyfriend in the sitcom F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Did it ring any bell? He played the character of Dr Richard Burke in that show. He has also starred in Blue Bloods as Police Commissioner Frank Reagan.

Neil Patrick Harris

Neil Patrick Harris is legen-wait for it… DARY! He has portrayed many television roles. But the one that stood out the most is Barney Stinson in HIMYM (2005-14). The show received strong backlash from the fans for its weird ending. But we cannot take anything from Harris for his mesmerizing portrayal of Barney. Other than that, he played the evil Count Olaf in Netflix’s instalment, A Series of Unfortunate Events (2017-19). He has openly declared that he is gay. This fact makes him the first gay host in the history of Academy Awards in 2015.

Hugh Laurie

Hugh Laurie

We have witnessed Hugh Laurie in many Hollywood projects. However, he has played mostly supporting characters throughout his career. But there was one role that changed his life forever. Yes, we are talking about the role of Dr Gregory House! It bagged him two Golden Globes and various other accolades. He was also hailed as one of the highest-paid actors in the history of television during his time on the show. He also became prominent for his role in Veep (2012-19).

Steve Carell

The American version of The Office (2005-13) could not have become a great success if it wasn’t for Steve Carell. His unique and unforgettable portrayal of Micheal Scott won the hearts of millions of fans. And his departure from the show was one of the most heartbreaking moments in the history of television. There is no denying that he has excelled in mainstream Hollywood movies. But we all know where it all truly started! He returned to the television with Space Force, a Netflix original.

Benedict Cumberbatch

Cumberbatch is probably one of the most popular British actors in recent times. His work has transcended the boundaries of movies and tv-series. He is currently winning the hearts of superhero fans with his role of Doctor Strange. But he first rose to worldwide prominence with his iconic performance in the Sherlock series. He has also received a couple of Emmy Awards for his performance in the show. In 2018, he returned to the TV universe with Patrick Melrose.

Aaron Paul

No one in their wildest dreams could have known that the role of Jesse Pinkman could shape the career of Aaron Paul in 2008. Pinkman had one of the best character’s arc in the history of television. And its credit belongs to none other than Aaron Paul as he delivered a staggering and heart-wrenching performance in the show. It was his career-best performance. He has also starred in BoJack Horseman as Todd. He also appeared in the third season of Westworld.

Jim Parsons

BAZINGA! A word that always reminds us why Jim Parsons is one of the best television actors of all time! It was his persona and talent that made the character of Sheldon Cooper prominent on a global scale. He played that role for nearly twelve long years and still managed to bring freshness to every season. It could have lost all the steam during this long run. But thanks to Parsons for keeping this character entertaining as hell. He has also starred in various Hollywood projects like Hidden Figures, Home, The Boys in the Band, and many more.

James Gandolfini

We cannot imagine anyone other than James Gandolfini for the role of Tony Soprano. Even after losing his life at such an early age, he still resides in the hearts of millions of fans. The Sopranos was very important for the career of Gandolfini. And vice versa, he became very crucial for making the show popular among the viewers. Other than bagging three Emmy Awards, he also won a Golden Globe for his performance.

Peter Dinklage

Peter Dinklage is the living example that a physical deformity cannot become an obstacle in your success if you work hard to achieve that. The world witnessed his enchanting and magnificent performance in the HBO fantasy drama, Game of Thrones (2011-19). He literally lived the character of Tyrion Lannister. He has bagged a record four Emmys in the category of Outstanding Supporting Actor. He displayed his extended range of acting skills in the show. A true performer!

Bryan Cranston

We have always watched a villain turning to the good side in the end. But the case is just the opposite here. An ordinary chemistry teacher starts cooking meth for earning more money for his treatment of cancer. It sounds good, isn’t it? But not every story has a good end. His expertise becomes his obsession. And that obsession leads to chaos! Breaking Bad elegantly displays the rise and fall of Heisenberg. But we cannot argue about Cranston’s performance. He was literally the heart of the show. His tense, gripping, and maniacal performance still thrills the audience.
