Liam Hemsworth in The Hunger Games

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.

Anson Mount as in Hell on Wheels

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.

  • Johnny Blade

    no Charles Bronson?

    • David Aguilar

      Once Upon a Time in West
      The Mechanic
      The Great Escape
      The Dirty Dozen
      Hard Times
      Death Wish

      Charles Bronson must be on that list.

    • Ignacio Zara

      In fact, Bronson deserved to be here… You are right! Next time. I promise!

      • kbwell

        it’s a neat poll, but you are bound to make enemies by leaving out
        certain actors; Dolph Lundgren, Jet Li, Tony Jaa, Jacky Chan,

        Ziyi Zhang, Bronson(of course), Micky Rourke, Clive Owen. i could go on and on and on lol. still yet good poll!

    • kbwell

      I feel ya man. It makes no sense to have all these people and leave out Bronson. Hemsworth is on here for his Red Dawn REMAKE. Where is Swayze with his original? Which was 100x better!

  • kbwell

    if only these kids had seen any of the classic action movies, this poll would be completely different.

    • Ignacio Zara

      Yes, Richard Widmark or John Wayne deserve more votes. But… old times! Nowadays, people don’t see classic movies. A shame!

  • Ovi Hondru

    YES! I was very disappointed to see that Charlie Bronson is not on the list and this is a shame indeed!When he was playing a tough guy,most of the actors on the list were admiring and were huge fans of him.IF Charlie would have accepted when Sergio Leone practically chased him and begged him to play in A fistful of dollars,I am not sure when Clint would have become the tough guy in movies!Lets be honest and give the guy his well deserved place!

  • I voted for Anson Mount but I LOVE Machete! Machete don’t tweet!

    • kbwell

      Machete does text, but Machete does not tweet.

  • scors54

    No Bronson? No Lee Marvin? No Jack Palance? Just to name a few.

  • Chrissy Markley Sorace

    Vinnie Jones is a bad ass where is he?

  • Jesse Cormier

    Bruce Lee would kill ALL OF THEM. Are you people dumb?

    • kbwell

      “ACTOR” not real life. who has had the more BA roles. sad to say Lee wasn’t around long enough to have too many roles. though i love his movies, i mean i own his complete collection, he hasn’t had the most BA roles.. my opinion.

      • The guy was a demi-god among men. He beat Chuck Norris ffs!

        • kbwell

          if you knew anything about Bruce Lee, and his teachings, you would know he’d be the first to say you are wrong. but yet again “ACTOR” not real life martial artist.

  • Peter Stephenson

    No Lee Marvin? A real tough guy. US Marine in the South Pacific in WW2. Should really be topping this list.

  • NICK НΛRT

    why the fuck is liam hemsworth on this list

  • Bruce lee only get’s 5%, you kidding me?

    where’s Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford, Steven Segal, Dennis Quaid, Kurt Russell, jackie Chan, Mickey Rourke, Jet Li, Liam Neason, the Rock, Vin Deasil, Tom Cruise, Val Kilmer, Christian Bale, William Shatner, and Kevin Costner???

    • Do you think Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford, Devin Costner… are tough actors? Noooo! You’re joking!

  • Luis Kenny

    I voted Bruce Lee second runner up I would have picked John Wayne, no more about Bruce the guy is someone who is dedicated to there craft no stunt man needed etc.

    • OMG Noooooo! Tom Cruise, Al Pacino, Matthew Mcconaughey, Leonardo DiCaprio… will be Top 1 actors, but not specifically ‘tough actors’. They make more drama than action, even comedy or historical films. We search for icons of a ‘tough guy.’
