You forgot about John Travolta, who went from Vinnie Barbarino (Welcome Back Kotter), Tony Manero (Saturday Night Fever), and Danny Zuko(Grease), and lets not forget Look Who's Talking 1 thru 3 ,to roles  like :

Vincent Vega (Pulp Fiction) ,

Sean Astor/Castor Troy (Face Off),

Vic Deakins (Broken Arrow),

Gabriel Shear (Swordfish)

Ryder (The Taking of Pelham 123)

and the ASS KICKING Charlie Wax (From Paris with Love)

I also kind of would've liked to see Topher Grace in there. He seems to be going the way of Elijah Wood, from douchey sitcom character, to Venom, to the upcoming Predators movie.

Yeah, Hanso, I get that same problem sometimes with the comments.  Even more so, I'll click to the next page of comments and then it says "Be the first to comment!"

Well, if were gonna talk semantics on whether the list refers to the actors or their characters, the title of the list sort of implies we are gonna be discussing the actors. It does say former wussy actors. Not badass characters played by wussy actors.

At the end of the day, its all subjective and semantics. I personally get what the author was trying to get at. But it isn't worded well enough and I could understand the confusion. Personally, I think all these guys are great actors and that makes them badass to me.

 A badass character has to be played by an actor that can be believable as a bad ass. You can't stick some scrawny puss in there, regardless of their acting skill, and expect us to buy into it. I'm constantly knocking out guys half my age(MMA) and spent three months in Iraq as a private contractor and there's no way Brody can pull off a special forces badass, for example, based on my experience. Anyway, y'all get my point.

Bruce Willis also gets dinged for Blind Date, so he really changed himself.

As to bad ass...I didn't think Heath Ledger could shock me as the Joker. Wrong. He exemplified bad ass. Heck of a path from Brokeback to psycho.

Part of me wants to say Keanue Reeves for the Ted Theodore Logan  to Neo turn...but he wasn't all that bad ass there anyway.

Liev schrieber... sabertooth.

Jude Law... Repo Men

 

Both guys started out way wimpy and now look at 'em. Way better choices than Wood.
