Hanso, true Will got in that fight with those guys who were up to no good, but if you remember he was getting his ass tossed around like a rag doll by said guys.

And yeah, Adrian Brody has no business being on this list...BUT...Him sticking his tongue down Halie Berry's throat on Live TV when he own the Oscar was pretty badass, you have to admit.

And as for Elijah, probably shouldn't be on the list either, but his character in Sin City and in Green Street Holigans did so some ass-kicking.  Maybe just not enough to be on the list much less number 1.

I might add Bruce Willis to this list though and maybe put him pretty high, maybe number 1.  He did start out on a sappy, romcom series with Moonlighting before becoming the baddest cop ever with John McClain among other action roles.

Also maybe add Sly to the list.  Stallone wasn't always playing the heavy and it wasn't really until Rocky 3 and First Blood that he got all ripped.  Plus he's done some pretty wussy roles since namely in Rhinestone.

So there's a defense of "you want to be the smart guy" and "what he said."...I guess the mantle of smart guy is mine to bear weather I wanted it or not.

 Redhairs - Yes but they only showed us the beginning of the fight, maybe Will kicked those guys asses after he got twirled around.  Also in Smith's favor of not being a wuss, he did some tagging which the cops came after him for plus he spent most of his days on the playground, relaxin all cool while he played bball outside of school.

hanso, sure Will got in one little fight, but his mom scared, and said "You're moving with your auntie and uncle in Bel Air"...if we were to review the video of said fight, he didn't exactly look like a badass...those guys were totally owning.  They were twirling him on their shoulders, for crissakes!

I'd say Will Smith was more of a neighborhood scamp, what with tagging and joyriding in his parents' Porshe...man, they NEVER understood.

I submit Woody Allen for the list. You sleep with your stepdaughter and she likes it and your wife can't stop it and everybody still says you're a great director speaks to true bad-assery .

I think he could take Clint Eastwood in a knifefight, too.

You forot Will Smith who still is a wimp but will never be tough after getting butt sex from  by a white guy in Six Derees of Separation.

And Erica Bana? He did great with Bruce Banner and Munich.

And I guess joethe wanker does not know that actors start out in small roles. Matt Damon was a glorified extra.Nothing more. That being said I had Mystic Pizza in December and it was slices of heaven.


You need a list of actors who will stay wimps. Sam Avatard Salvation Worthington would Pwn that title.

Where's Joe to defend his #1 choice? He must be hiding in shame. It's alright Joe we are a forgiving bunch here at mania, at least after we put your feet to the fire. I'll just file it as a side effect of your last piece on drugs in film, you must've been doing hands on research

Really........................elijah wood..........really?

Sorry but I hardly would EVER remotely, in a THOUSAND years consider him a bad ass. One role does not a bad ass make nor would I even think of Frodo as a bad ass seriously.

That was a weak number one choice, anyone in the world wide web could have come up with a better one. Why does Mania always pick the most butt backwards, opposite choices for number one?

 Where's Anthony Michael Hall?
