Top 10 Movie Beards

Beards, eh? Cornerstone of any good movie.
Here's ten of the best.

The Bull McCabe (Richard Harris) in The Field

Snowy white perfection. Santa only wishes he had a beard like that.

Carlito Brigante (Al Pacino) in Carlito's Way

Never liked Serpico's beard - bit too scraggly for my liking. Much prefer this tidy, controlled affair. Honorable mention to Benny Blanco from the Bronx's effort in the same film.

Chewbacca in Star Wars

When beards grow wild! 

Ellis (Hart Bochner) in Die Hard.

The perfect 80s yuppie beard, complete with shit-eating grin.
So excellent Hans Gruber killed him because his own beard was not as cool.

Seneca Crane (Wes Bentley) in The Hunger Games

A recent entry. Impressive use of the the old Mach 3 there!

Davy Jones (Bill Nighy) in Pirates of the Carribean

His beard is an octopus. AN OCTOPUS!

Group Award - Lord of the Rings

More beards than you can shake a razor at!

Jack Horner (Burt Reynolds) in Boogie Nights

The Man with the Moustache goes one step further
by placing a badger pelt on his chin.

Honorary Award - Louis Winthorpe (Dan Ackroyd) in Trading Places

Yes, I know it is a fake beard, but he eats a fish through it.
Which earns him a place here above all other bearded Santas in the movies.

Mufasa in The Lion King

It's a beard and it's RED!

Inspired to grow your own? Go on, do it, it'll make you feel like a real man. Even if you're a woman. Grrrr!
