Records were made to be broken. That generally seems to be the overall theme surrounding the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. However, the film itself isn’t the only party breaking records these days. According to Box Office Mojo, the film’s immense success at the box office has allowed Harrison Ford to now officially become the highest grossing actor of all time. In order to achieve this highest of honors, Ford had to dethrone box office powerhouse Samuel L. Jackson to get there. Anyone who knows even a little bit about Hollywood knows this had to be no easy feat, considering the fact that Jackson has basically been in every movie produced since the early 1990s. (Slight exaggeration.)
 
But what about the others? In this age of record smashing blockbusters, a select group of actors have used these epic scale films to become box office greats. Allow us to take you through the top ten highest grossing actors of all time, starting with No. 10 and working our way down to Mr. Ford himself. Some you probably will see coming, while others may surprise you.

10. Gary Oldman
For years Gary Oldman developed a great career and a solid reputation portraying truly despicable bad guys. From The Fifth Element, to Leon: The Professional, and even Air Force One, the actor has a way of imbuing his characters with a truly disgusting sensibility. However, it wasn’t until he switched over to the good side and donned the glasses of police commissioner James Gordon in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy that his box office power truly made itself apparent.
