Can you find anything wrong with this face? The answer is no. Exuding charm wit, and magnetism with his smile.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
No one looks like Christoper Walken. His expressions are subtle but very effective.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
Strong features and powerful brows. Patrick Stewart has a great face for acting, and his amazing voice that compliments his expressions perfectly.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
Christopher Lee has an unforgettable stare. Like Patrick Stewart, his powerful voice only helps to bring out his engaging expressiveness.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
Anthony Hopkin's eyes are very bright and alive. He has a look to him that makes him seem very human and approachable. Despite his excellent performance, I always though it a bit odd that he was cast as Hannibal Lecter. If you want to see him as a younger man, you should watch "Magic" or "Lion in Winter".
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
Vincent Price is remembered as much for his voice as his face. His signature eyebrow raise seems to make an appearance in nearly all of his roles. He was most famous after his 40's. Most people don't realize that he was quite an attractive man in his younger years.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
One day I'll discover how it is that I keep getting older and he stays the same. Denzel's face is the epitome of balance and confidence.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
If the devil wanted to charm your soul into his pocket he'd come as Ewan McGregor's doppelganger. He's got the smile of a man that gets whatever he wants.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
Crispin Glover has a long thin nose, beady eyes, and an unusual mouth. Somehow, you put that all together, and it makes a great combination!
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
The first word that comes to mind when watching Ronald Colman in movies is "dashing." A veteran of silent films and some of the great pictures of the 30's. Watch 'The Prisoner of Zenda,' or the masterpiece 'Lost Horizon' to see Colman at his best.

Gregory Peck had one of the best faces in movies. He could play cruel, angry villains, or charming, sensitive and understanding types. Also he seemed to look better as he got older.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
James Stewart often played characters that were very human and vulnerable. He could also bring a powerful intensity of emotions through his expressions. Watch 'Vertigo' and you'll know what I mean.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
Max von Sydow has piercing eyes, and a large, almost stone like face. He seems to be either smiling or frowning.

Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
Average listal rating (41 ratings) 8.7 IMDB Rating 0
Whether playing the strapping lad in My Fair Lady, or the handsome devil in Sherlock Holmes, Jeremy Brett is easily one of the most overlooked attractive men of the 20th century.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
Errol Flynn has the charm of a rogue. He's the kind of guy that can duel a man to the death with a smile on his face. Whatever role he's playing, be it pirate, boxer, or revolutionary, you can't help but find yourself rooting for his side to win.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
I'm not sure how I forgot Richard Burton. All those years of hard living didn't help the aging process for Richard. But, throughout his life he was still an attractive man.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
Burt Lancaster often played roles that tested his physicality and athleticism. Sometimes his powerful features are overlooked. He was excellent at portraying strong emotions.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
Average listal rating (39 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 0
You have to see Robert Donat in a motion picture to understand his charm. One of a few men on this list with whom a mustache is a must. Tragically, he didn't act in many roles due to his death in 1958.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
Perhaps one of the best faces in acting. Laurence Olivier's powerful expressiveness remained undimmed throughout his long acting career.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
Average listal rating (125 ratings) 7.7 IMDB Rating 0
David Niven has a delightful face full of hope. He is also one of many on this list who seem to improve with age. Every line and wrinkle added more to his character.

I don't know which magazine started the 'sexiest man alive' craze. Tyrone Power is without a doubt one of the sexiest men who ever lived.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
A veteran of around 100 films, Toshiro Mifune has a strong face, capable of great expression.

Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
Michael Caine has enough wit and swagger for a dozen men. He has been popular amongst Americans for decades while remaining quintessentially British.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
Robert Redford has one of the best faces in Hollywood history. Youthful, mischievous, charming, cunning.

Not many people can manage to look amazing throughout their entire life. Paul Newman is one of the few who seemed to age better than wine. His blue eyes and perfectly sculpted face are second to none.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
There's nothing perfect about Gabriel Byrne's face. But that might be what's so great about it. He could be a holy man in one movie, and the devil in the next, and you'd believe him both times. For one of his more interesting roles, watch Miller's Crossing.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
I was first introduced to Pierce Brosnan's work in a show called Remington Steele. He had the right stuff to play James Bond, and did a great job in his first two roles as 007. If you want to see and exciting Pierce Brosnan movie performance, watch The Fourth Protocol starring Michael Caine and Brosnan.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
Peter O'Toole played many challenging roles throughout his film career. His bight eyes and elongated form helped to make him unique among many of the great actors of his time. For roles less famous but very interesting, watch Rogue Male, and My Favorite Year.

Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
Michael J. Fox brings a youthful energy to his characters. He also excels in playing characters that must overcome difficult circumstances, much like in his real life.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
What a great face. Whether he looks happy or serous, he draws you closer to him, making his characters more appealing.

Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
Christopher Eccleston is a man not mentioned enough for all he's done in movies and television. A great supporting actor, and owner of a beautifully flawed face. The sum of those flaws equal near perfection in character and uniquity.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
When I was younger, Ralph Fiennes had a face I kept telling myself I didn't like. Afterwards, I kept -trying- to tell myself I didn't like it. Then, I -stopped- trying to tell myself I didn't like it. You win Ralph. Your face rules.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
I first watched Jonny Lee Miller in Trainspotting as Sick Boy. He was lying down in the park, shooting a dog with an air rifle. If he looked like anyone except Jonny Lee Miller, I would have hated him right there. Somehow, he was still likeable. That's the power of the Jonny Lee Miller smirk.

Sean Bean is a favorite of mine for his role as Richard Sharpe in the Sharpe's limited series. He's got the rugged handsome looks of a man who fears nothing.

'Willem Dafoe?' Seriously?' You may ask, but this is a favorite faces list, not a 'pretty' faces list. His face might be strange, but that's what I like about it.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
He's played foolish and over the top characters for most of his career, people sometimes overlook the fact that he's very handsome and charming.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
Kevin Costner had looks that surpassed most of his peers and fellow actors in the 80's. Although he hasn't had a marvelous career, he has had some good performances.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
David Duchovny has the kind of face that lets you believe whatever he tells you. It only makes sense he played a womanizer on Californication.

Average listal rating (81 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 0
The face Robocop, and Buckaroo Banzai. Big movies in my development as a human being. Peter Weller looks nothing like a movie star. But if you need someone a little different, Peter Weller is your man.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
Michael Biehn's biggest roles were in James Cameron's Terminator, Aliens, and The Abyss. He often play soldiers and cops, and seems comfortable with a weapon in his hand. He's also got a sensitive side, which he sometimes gets to express with his leading ladies (see Terminator for reference)

What doesn't Guy Pearce do well? He seems adept at playing varied characters in all of his movie roles. Guy Pearce has an odd look about him, which he uses well to add dimension to his characters.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
Sanada grew into his face over time. In his early years, he was a martial artist and child actor working in many Sonny Chiba movies. Hiroyuki Sanada has a masculine but sensitive face.

Ray Liotta has brighter eyes than almost anyone in movies.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
Do you really need an explanation here? He has a coolness factor of 11 out of 10. He has more style than an Armani factory. He - you get the point.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
Sometimes I look at John Malkovich and say "Man he ain't human" (no offense John). But somehow, that equates to Malkovich bringing certain quirks to his roles that most other actors don't possess. He's got a strange face, but it works in so many movies. I wouldn't change a thing.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
As he was described in A Clockwork Orange: "Lovely lovely Ludwig Van."
Beethoven has a wild look most musicians wish they could have. Even at his most formal, he looks like he could turn feral and shove a symphony up someone's ass without warning.

Skeet Ulrich mostly played in supporting roles throughout his career. His boyish charm and messy good looks are often overlooked.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
In his early career in talking movies, Robert Montgomery often played the lovable but intoxicated playboy. As he got older his roles were more complex and varied. Old or young, he had a great face.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
Montgomery Clift was one of Hollywood's most attractive men. He suffered a horrific car crash that altered his appearance, and worsened his depression. A short life, but well remembered.
Joseph Grey's rating:
Rate:
Harold Perrineau has balanced good looks that seem to be overlooked by a lot of people.

A couple of months back I made a Favorite Faces list for women. Now, I'm covering the other half of the species.

Unique, striking, charismatic, faces that making watching movies or listening to music easier and more enjoyable.

The list is in no particular order. I'll be adding a few more, but I'll likely stop short of 50 people.

Great choices! I missed Clint Eastwood and Adrien Brody here.
Posted: 6 years, 2 months ago at Aug 17 19:54
Yes, great choices. With many of them it is their voice that is the first thing that I think about.
Posted: 6 years, 2 months ago at Aug 19 2:24
@jaytoast: True, the impression of their looks cannot be separated from their voices. Perhaps I should have made a "best voices" list, but I feel that many of the same men would populate that list as well.

Fun fact: Ray Liotta is not actually Italian. He is of Scottish descent but was adopted by an Italian couple when he was a baby. :]
Posted: 6 years, 1 month ago at Aug 22 20:05
Every item in this list certainly brings up not only interesting remarkable faces (beautiful or ugly is a personal matter) but in most of the cases names of great actors.
Regards for the great job.

An excellent and well written list :)

Laurence Olivier!! He's too handsome!! I'm serious, when I watch Olivier in any role I melt faster than plastic!!!
Posted: 5 years, 7 months ago at Mar 14 20:00
Very intellectual list - I like that you chose certain actors based not on their attractiveness but on their face in general. Great explanations, as well. :)

Interesting list :) Beethoven's real likeness wasn't quite as he's widely known (in fact I tentatively included him in a Black Achievers list!)
