20 Top Tough Actors in Movies. Liam Hemsworth, Jason Statham, Tom Selleck, Sylvester Stallone… Vote for your favorite now! The list is amazing! You can choose among classic actors as John Wayne, who was among the top box office draws for three decades, and personified rugged masculinity with his manners, distinctive calm voice, walk, and height.
How about Charlton Heston? He rejected scripts that did not emphasize responsibility, individualism and masculinity.
Really tough guys were Richard Widmark and Steve McQueen. Richard Widmark played anti-hero roles in films noir, and later, more heroic roles in westerns and horror films. Steve McQueen popular films include The Thomas Crown Affair, Bullitt, The Getaway, Papillon, The Magnificent Seven, The Great Escape, and The Towering Inferno.
Of course, this list must include Humphrey Bogart. In 1999, the American Film Institute ranked Bogart as the greatest male star in the history of American cinema. He is always great, but specially as a gangster in films such as Angels with Dirty Faces (1938) and B-movies like The Return of Doctor X (1939).
Liam Hemsworth in The Hunger Games film series is absolutely amazing. And Arnold Schwarzenegger, Woody Harrelson, Bruce Willis, Jason Statham, Sylvester Stallone, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Tom Selleck, and Gerard Butler are also Top#1 actors today. However, Clint Eastwood is not only a tough actor, but a ‘tough’ director, and really, really, really good! Anyway, Clint Eastwood role as Harry Callahan in the five Dirty Harry movies throughout the 70s and 80s made him an enduring cultural icon of masculinity.
Anson Mount playing the role as Cullen Bohannon in the AMC show Hell on Wheels has shown what would be a tough man in America during the 19th century. Superb!
Another actor who has always played hypermasculine characters is Danny Trejo. He is perhaps most recognizable as the character Machete, originally developed by director Robert Rodriguez.
Ending the list we must include Kirk Douglas and Bruce Lee.
