Top 5 Mustachioed Men (non-sports)
The popularity of facial hair seems to go in cycles. Sometimes they’re in, other times they’re out. That may be true for the masses, but there are some guys who can rock a mustache no matter the style or season and still garner our respect. Here are five guys who will always be known for the flavor saver above their upper lip.
Ron Swanson (he’s a character…can’t find him in Getty…this is the actual actor)
Played by Nick Offerman, Ron Swanson is a man’s man who is led by one thing, his mustache. His idea of a turkey burger is a “fried turkey leg inside a grilled hamburger.” Sure he may not be the healthiest of men, but he certainly is a “go big or go home” kind of guy.
Yet another character, Borat’s mustache has a great appeal. In fact, you can even buy your own Borat’s “seksey” mustache. It’s nice. Posing as a fake journalist from Kazakhstan, he’s still probably the best guest David Letterman ever had on his Late Show. High five!
Probably the most respected tiny mustache in time, Chapman added facial hair to his look as a young lad to appear older, yet kept it small enough so that it wouldn’t hide his facial expressions. In the silent film era, Chaplin’s face was his money-maker and the ‘stache was a big part of his success. Let’s just say that he made the tiny mustache look cool before someone made it look… well, downright evil!
Take away a dog’s tail and it’ll look strange. Take away Burt Reynolds’ mustache and, well, it’s like we’d hardly known him. Reynolds and his mustache go together like peanut butter and jelly, which is why we’ll never be able to watch Deliverance with a straight face.
While Reynolds was a man’s man, Selleck was more of a ladies man with a notable soup strainer beneath his nose. Based on his role in the TV show “Magnum P.I.,” Selleck popularized the mustache to where it was referred to in certain circles as the “magnum.” Today, his mustache remains a popular phenomenon as it has over 13,000 Facebook friends. Not bad for a top-lip toupee.
