Hij is een acteur is also correct, though often in Dutch one would leave een out.

I wrote "Hij is toneelspeler" and it was marked incorrect; the acceptable answers were given as "Hij is acteur" or "Hij is een toneelspeler." Why the difference? That is, why would one of them take the indefinite article but the other not?

I think "Hij is toneelspeler" should be accepted (although might never have said it that way myself). I cannot report this myself though.
