Elijah Wood,  Even Adrian Brody shouldn't be on the list imho.

I agree Dicaprio and Will smith belong on the list.

What about Afleck?  He was the bomb in Phantoms yo!

Also,  Bruce willis started on Moonlighting all those years ago.  I wouldn't call that bad a$$.  Now he is John Mclain and might just be the posterboy for this list.

 Frodo was no badass.  He stumbled through the movies watching everyone else do the badass stuff.

Hugh's crying behinf the scene was in X-Men 1.  he was "crying" because the three foot drop was during the fall from the statue of liberty head bit and the harness he was wearing was crushing his balls.


I submit that adrian brody, while a fine actor, could never be bad ass in anything.  He looks like a gangly dork.  I dunno how he gets dramatic leading roles.

That list  seems forced. There are guys on it that were never wussies or aren't bad ass at any point in their career. The list should be 5 deep. That`s it.

Elijah Wood is not a bad ass. The closest roles he has ever had that made him somewhat bad ass were in Sin City when he played that psycho cannibal with the claws and in Green Street when he played a football holigan. Frodo is not bad ass! And its highly unlikely he'll ever get a badass role ever again.

Eric Bana shouldn't be on the list because he's always been bad ass. If for nothing else, he's an Aussie.
Same goes for Gerard Butler. He's always been badass, even before 300. The only reason he's doing all these romcom, is because he's been typecast as a badass for so long.

Adrian Brody has never been a bad ass. He has the mouthand accent of a badass but can't back it up

Everything Lawrence Fishburne has ever done after Peewee has been Badass, so the peewee stuff shouldn't even count as him being a WUSSY.

Matt Damon, Matthew Fox, and RDJ are the only guys on this list that started pretty wussy but are now BADASS. RDJ has hardly ever done any action films and now he's Iron Man and Sherlock Holmes. Matt Damon, forget about it. He's king badass.

I agree with pretty much everyone else, Elija Wood?  Give me a friggen break!  There is no way in hell he could ever be considered a badass.

I also agree with Midwest, Will Smith should be on this list.  And get rid of Adrian Brody replace him with Edward Norton.  That guy started out as quite the light weight and now look at him.

NONE OF THESE GUYS ARE BADASSES, THEY--I give up.  You're all lunatics.

Frodo Baggins is BAD ASS!!!!? The article so lost me when they got to Elijah Woods!!! I could easily list a few actors more deserving


1) Ewan McGregor (who's more bad ass than Obi Wan Kenobi!!!)

2) Christian Bale

3) Ryan Reynolds

4) Daniel Craig

5) Jake Gyllenhaal (giving Prince of Persia the benefit of the doubt!)

Love the list Cinemaman.

Lawrence Fishburne played an injured soldier in an episode of MASH, back in the day. Loved him in King of New York.

I feel bad for Wil Smith...he killed himself to help out strangers out of guilt.  I don't think Mark Hammill should be able to work here...he's an illegal alien from a galaxy far, far away.  I think Liam Neeson should get a humanitarian award for saving all those Jews during WW2. 

And that's what you're doing by calling these guys badasses or not based on characters they've played.

Wiseguy 3/10/2010 6:41:41 AM

continuing cineman's list

6) SpongeBob SquarePants

7) Jessica Biel

Oh and Caveman, get over it already, we all understand what the article aims at. You're the one being too literal, especially for a sarcastic caveman
