Why Is He Cool: Personally I prefer David Gilmour over Syd Barret AS A SINGER. David Gilmour has an amazing voice and super amazing quitar skills. You can hear the emotions in his voice, and it's just... beautiful. Then you just add the mind-blowing quitar solos there and you have a perfect package. How could you not respect this guy. And he seems like a really pleasant person.

Why Is He Cool: The baddest of them all. Blondie, Dirty Harry...
He's the best looking old man ever. I've never seen a man so old, yet so strangely good-looking. Also he's one of the greatest directors and actors. Clint Eastwood is like the definition of cool.

Why Is He Cool: Gary Oldman always does a perfect performance in his movies. He's one of the best. The dedication is just insane. I really hope he isn't last of the great actors. He's a treasure. And also damn hot.

Why Is He Cool: He's got the look, the talent and the personality. He's freaking Ziggy Stardust. Truly one of the most accomplished musicians ever. Also a great trendsetter of his time. Rest easy Bowie :(

Why Is He Cool: Strange, distinctive and talented man. I bet no one knows what's inside that man's head. And he's one creepy old guy! Fortunately he usually manages to pass that scenery inside of his mind to his movies. I adore Burton's movies.

Why Is He Cool: SIR Christopher Lee truly is an acting veteran. This guy is the world record holder of most film roles ever. Impressive! He also volunteered to fight for the Finnish forces during the Winter War (Read more: Actors who went to war). And.. HE'S DRACULA!

Why Is He Cool: Oh man... Words can't describe this guy's talent. I'm sorry but I reeeallly feel like everyone should know that ofc De Niro is the definition for badass. And he has a strange charisma.

Why Is He Cool: Quote from wikipedia: "He is also one of only two actors nominated for an Academy Award for acting (either lead or supporting) in every decade from the 1960s to 2000s (the other one being Michael Caine)."
Jack Nicholson is just INSANEly talented. He's the ultimate womanizer and he has loads of charisma (obviously).

Why Is He Cool: Hmm.. I feel like everyone should understand why SIR Michael Caine is on this list. Well he's an awesome actor and he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II. Also, I have to quote wikipedia: "Caine is one of only two actors nominated for an Academy Award for acting (either lead or supporting) in every decade from the 1960s to 2000s".
HELLO, pure awesomeness !?

Why Is He Cool: I prefer Pierce Brosnan when it comes to choosing the best James Bond. When I think about James Bond, it's Pierce Brosnan that pops into my mind first. His bond movies might suck but I still like him as James Bond! His Bond movies were actually the first ones I saw.
I adore the guy and his voice.

Why Is He Cool: From that outspoken funny guy from Moonlighting to the awesome all-american hero John McClane. He's bald, he's bad so obviously he's AWESOME. Kind of a douche sometimes but I guess you get to be when you're famous.

Why Is He Cool: The perfect grumpy old man. Despite what haters might think, he was actually really intelligent. His comedy was really clever and he was quick-witted. Also he's my atheist idol.

Why Is He Cool: This entry is dedicated for all the other Pythons too, because in my opinion they all were equally good. But since Cleese has had the most successful career OUTSIDE of the Pythons, I had to include him here. He's clearly a great comedian and can always keep a straight face. I have to say that he really reminds me of The Great Stone Face Buster Keaton.

Why Is He Cool: I wasn't sure about having Joe on this list. Since he died at the age of 50, I wasn't sure if I should consider him as an old guy like all the others on this list. But what the hell, I added him here anyways. Because he's a legend. Very talented, good-looking and intelligent.

Here's some of the most awesome old guys I know.
Coolness/awesomeness never fades away if you once have that.
RESPECT for these guys. And if you find that calling these awesome men "grandpa" is too negative for some reason, I'd like you to know that I have nothing but respect for these guys.


50+

AND, these are my personal favorites, so you can suggest but I think i'm not going to add them here, unless I've just forgotten them from this list.

"His bond movies might suck.."
- HEY, GoldenEye? The best bond movie in recent years, alongside Casino Royale.

Haha, agreed but a lot of the others have been quite disappointing =D

Great list! I can't believe some of the guys on here are actually as old as they are. Viggo is 52? When did that happen??

awesome.
Eastwood and H.Ford...astonishing!

i love Ed Harris...he's not in this list oh well. and i don't think Pierse Bond's movie suck he's the best !! Daniel Craig is just some hulk monster who slaps people off their vehicles, and never uses a single gadget cause he can break anything with his bear hands... not classy or stealth like Brosnan
