Dwayne Johnson spends his 17th total week at No. 1 on The Hollywood Reporter's Top Actors chart, topping the ranking dated Nov. 15 for a fourth consecutive week.

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 Nov. 7.

Johnson's current four-week streak at No. 1 is the second longest in the chart's brief history (The Hollywood Reporter's Social Climbers charts began with those dated June 10), behind only his own five-week run in July and August.

Meanwhile, four of the top 10 spots of the chart belong to Stranger Things actors, led by Millie Bobby Brown at No. 2. Additionally, the full 25-position list features two additional actors from the Netflix show, including the first that isn't one of the teenage actors: David Harbour, at No. 21.

See the top 10 below (and for the full 25-position list, pick up The Hollywood Reporter's issue dated Nov. 15), and for more charts on The Hollywood Reporter, check out the Top Comedians and Top TV Personalities charts.
