    after watching Kingsman TGC, I have to accept fact that Colin is one of the most sexiest brits actor I've ever seen. He is 57 but looks so damn good with suits. and his body shape, surely he works hard to get that shape ain't he?

    You obviously have not seen A Month in the Country, And When Did You Last See Your Father, Conspiracy or Apartment Zero. If you had, you would have left off Love Actually. As far as Lost Empires is concerned, he is the omniscient observer, which is a thankless job, the show is mediocre, but well worth seeing for John Castle's performance as Uncle Nick and it is one of Sir Laurence Oliver's final performances. Honorable mention for Trauma, a bad film with a great and eerie performance by Firth and Master of the Moor, a creepy and brilliant job by Firth. Master of the Moore is quite good.

    Dear God a movie starring both Colin and Hiroyuki Sanada and I have never watched it. What's wrong with me?

    "Before I go to Sleep" should be on this list. He is amazing in that role.

    Thank you for putting together a nice list here. It would have been excellent though, if Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy had gotten a rank, in my opinion.

    If only his performance as Ernest Worthing in "The Importance of being Earnest" made the list, I'd be 100% satisfied. But still a wonderful top ten list for a wonderfully talented actor.

    For me there's definitely one role missing – in Before I go to sleep. He was amazing in that movie and it was really different from every role that he played so far.

    His best role was not in movies but on television, a drama from 1994 called Master of the Moor. He was outstanding.

    Interesting list, but too predicable and not quite right. There are many other performances that should be included or considered besides the ones mentioned. Watch his work in The Widowing of Mrs. Holroyd, A Month in the Country, When Did You Last See Your Father and Apartment Zero and get back to us with a better list. Also, Firth was great in the flawed Genius, but Jude Law was decidedly not – totally miscast. Therefore, people ignore Firth's performance in Genius, which should've been a much better film considering the talent involved (Nicole Kidman, Laura Linney). If you are including supporting roles for this list, in addition to his hysterical turn in Shakespeare in Love, don't forget turn performance as Bill Hayden in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. Other than the phenomenal lead Gary Oldman, Firth's supporting performance is the best of the supporting players, a whose who of great British Actors. Interestingly, Firth played the same character in Tinker Tailor to perfection in his very first film, the excellent Another Country. Both the characters in Tinker Tailor and Another Country are based on the real life traitor/spy Guy Burgess. His performance in the little known Arthur Newman is also list worth.The first three should be as follows: 1) A Single Man; 2) The King's Speech; and 3) his career defining role as Mr. Darcy in P&P. Jeff Bridges won and Oscar for his so so performance in the horrible Crazy Heart, because it was a lifetime achievement award for a deserving and very popular actor. Firth should have won that year for A Single Man. Conversely, Firth won the next year for The King's Speech, when Bridges should have won that year for the superb Coen Brothers remake of True Grit. Firth's being typecast as the consummate English Gentleman is really a shame. He can do so many other types of roles if given a chance. For example, he was so funny and gave a great performance the disheveled football/soccer fanatic in the original Fever Pitch.The American remake is embarrassingly bad. He and Mark Strong has such chemistry as best friends and fellow Arsenal worshipers in Fever Pitch that it is worth watching just to see them interact. The woman who played Firth's love interest almost ruing the film. What a horrible actress. Ditto for Where the Truth Lies. The lead actress literally ruined the film. .He also excels at playing psychos as is demonstrated by his performances in Before I Go To Sleep and the aforementioned Apartment Zero. Well, being typecast is not so bad. It has given him longevity and the opportunity to work consistently.
