Top Hero Actors

#5 Richard Dean Anderson

 

This man used be MacGyver.

Ok, so I intentionally started off this list with someone you’re all gonna argue with, but whom I had to get out of the way. He has a limited acting career… and the only two jobs you’ll think of in that career are as Colonel Jack O’Neill, and this guy, the lovable MacGyver.

It should then come to you as no shock that I picked him to start my list:

  • He’s a personal favorite.
  • His only two notable roles are as heroes.
  • Both of those heroes are of two different clothes – one avoids killing at all costs… and one doesn’t.
  • He rocked a mullet.

If you decide that this isn’t enough criteria, consider this. Anyone one character can be the hero of a story, but a hero actor has to be someone who is both the hero AND heroic in a large majority of his more famous roles.
