Best tough guy actor on tv/in movies

Recommended Posts

Out of all the "tough guy" actors on tv and in movies, which one do you think is really the biggest badass?

For me I'm definitely saying any Clint Eastwood role. He's the man. I just got done watching "Two Mules for Sister Sara" for the second time this week, Clint Eastwood is a man amongst boys!!

Close second is going to be Chuck Norris (naturally). I think he's way overplayed, but he REALLY IS a badass outside of his roles. Isn't he like a 7th degree blackbelt or something?

My friend insists Jack Bauer is #1 and I think that's a joke, heck I'd pick Gregory House M.D. to beat Bauer. And HE'S an old British cripple!

So. What do you guys think?

I don't know about all around badassness, and this actor only has one badass role, but Val Kilmer as Doc Holliday is my favorite.

Bronson and Eastwood have made some darn good movies. Sure wished we had someone to come alone and fill their shoes.

Agree with others on Eastwood, Bronson, The Duke, and Chuck Norris.

Here are a few others I would add

Steven Seagall - he's just bad.

Al Pacino

Bruce Lee

Robert Deniro

John Travolta

And one of my all time favorite old-school tough guys - Burt Reynolds - White Lightning, Gator, and Sharkey's Machine are among my favs.

Charles Bronson.

Ooooh good choice! 8-)

You bet.  Bronson would walk up to a perv on the subway and shoot him in the gut with a snubnose, then watch him bleed to death.  

Almost forgot, Chuck Norris doesn't sleep, he waits.  ;D

Dr. Hanibal Lector.  I still get nightmares and it's been 6 yrs since I read the book.   CHILLING...

But real life actors are and always will be   The Duke, Clint E. and Charles B.

I like alot of them mentioned. But to add, I like Robert Duvall. Eastwood and John Wayne were great. I also agree with 4Bizz. Val Kilmer was great in Tombstone! "I'm your huckleberry"

Steven Segal. He is one guy who in actuality KNOWS all the martial arts stuff that he portrays in his films. Chuck Norris was not a full contact fighter in his younger years if I recollect right. He was a "points fighter" whereas Segal practices Akido and in reality could probably "mop the floor" with almost anyone. Didn't he "call out" Jean Claude Van d**n on a talk show once? I heard he called him a "sissy" or something like that? Bruce Lee was another martial artist who was the REAL THING. That is a well know fact. IMO:o)

in real life.. Audie Murphy... goes to prove a brave man isn't always the biggest...

movie personna though.. Clint Eastwood... made a career on being a tough guy that has spanned DECADES... started with the sketti westerns and goes all the way thru the dirty harry series...
