    Title speaks for itself, my ranking would go like this

    1) Heath Ledger as Joker (Probably my favorite acting performance ever)
    2) Aaron Eckhart as Two face (Underrated IMO)
    3) Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle
    4) Christian Bale in TDKR
    5) Christian Bale in Begins
    6) Tom Hardy as Bane
    7) Gary Oldman in TDK
    8) Christian Bale in TDK (Underrated)
    9) JGL as John Blake
    10) Micheal Cain is all 3

    I think counting the same actor in each movie individually is a little redundant, rather count them all together as one... so...

    1. Heath Ledger
    2. Christian Bale
    3. Cillian Murphy
    4. Liam Neeson
    5. Gary Oldman
    6. Michael Caine
    7. Anne Hathaway
    8. Tom Wilkinson (Falcone)
    9. Aaron Eckhart
    10. Morgan Freeman

    I'd say that one goes to Nicky Katt for tainting an amazing film with only seconds of screentime. That guy is the most annoying and ridiculous piece of crap in the whole trilogy. And what sucks is it takes place during one of the best parts of the film.

    1) Bale/Ledger. I can't choose. Before TDK, I would've given it to Ledger, but since TDKR, Bale brought it. I finally rediscovered why I honestly believe he's one the best actors working today.
    2) Caine.
    3) Oldman. TDK was all his.
    4) Eckhart.
    5) Hathaway. I was always confident she'd be incredible, and she didn't disappoint. At. All.
    6) Neeson.
    7) Freeman.
    8) Murphy.
    9) JGL
    10) Cottilard.
