Dwayne Johnson leads The Hollywood Reporter’s Top Actors chart for a fifth straight week. He leads the list dated Dec. 27, ahead of the rest of the top five: Finn Wolfhard, Kevin Hart, Noah Schnapp and Dove Cameron, respectively.

The Top Actors chart is a ranking of the most popular actors on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and Google Plus, with global data provided by social media analytics company MVPindex. The chart's methodology blends social engagement on the platforms along with weekly additions of followers/subscribers. The latest tracking week ended Dec. 19.

Johnson’s fifth week ruling the chart ties his longest consecutive reign atop the Top Actors chart; previously, he led for five straight weeks beginning on the July 5-dated ranking.

Schnapp re-enters the top 10 of the chart at No. 4 after ranking at No. 12 on the Dec. 20-dated tally. Four others join him as re-entries into the top 10, including Hugh Jackman, whose No. 9 position is his first top 10 appearance since June.
