You have to include the dyspeptic Urbano Barberini in the schlock-gasm that is the two Italian Gor movies (the latter of which made it into the annals of MST3K). And who could forget the beefiest man yet to emerge from the Canadian wasteland, Jon Mikl Thor? He killed more people as a zombie and a demonic hair-band singer throughout the 80's than I have family members (btw Jon Mikl Thor, please don't read this and kill my family.)

Oh, and Olympic Gold Medalist Kurt Thomas (Yakmala!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Was that gold medalist in a film or television show? If not, what's he doin' here?

I don't think she qualifies yet, but Mary McCormack might soon.

Okay, who invited the olympians?

While he did not win a gold medal for anything done in a television show or movie, he should have won at least a silver in the Parmistanian Smiting Event for killing a man with his thighs and maiming thirty-seven people with a pommel horse as Jonathan Cabot in the documentary (I think) Gymkata.

Okay. Hadn't seen it; heard it's terrible (I mean "worth watching").

Has anyone mentioned Richard Lawson?

Not that I recall, but I would like to mention that Richard Dawson is a badass.

Derf mentioned James Cagney in passing -- Cagney deserves more than a passing reference --

While he thought of himself primarily as a "hoofer"(dancer), Cagney pretty much set the bar for badass in films like "Public Enemy" and "White Heat".

In "White Heat", for but one example, he's locked one of his own gang members in the trunk of a car.  The gang member gets jostled around a lot & then they stop the car to take care of some business.  When Cagney comes back to the car, the gang member in the trunk is saying "Hey!  It's hard to breathe in here!".  Cagney says "Oh, you can't breathe, eh?  Well let me punch you some air holes!!", and empties his revolver into the trunk --

Um . . . yeah.  I think that sort of employee/employer relationship pretty much defines badass --

I nominate Albert Popwell. Has he been mentioned on this site at all? He damn well better have been!

If Vincent Price qualifies, does that mean we can add Bela Lugosi, Boris Karloff and Peter Lorre?

Karloff was definitely a badass in THE BODY SNATCHER.  He killed a puppy with a shovel for barking too loud, for goodness sake.  Plus, he killed Bela, which makes Bela a wimp in my opinion.  (I can say this because RC Merchant isn't around right now).

Ah...but Bela killed Karloff...skinned him ALIVE no less! -in the BLACK CAT (1934)
And Bela walmost always was an evil charecter...most of Karloffs charecters had some redeeming qualitys-ie-the Frankenstein Monster, all those misunderstood mad doctor movies. Bela was almost always just plain evil....he enjoyed his evilness! Laughing all the way in some instances! "Yes! I LIKE to tor-ture!"-the RAVEN (1935)

Simon Pegg has impressed me lately and I am looking forward to his upcoming role as Montgomery Scott.

Also, Peter Stomare has reeked of badassery several times.

Don't get me wrong...Karloff could be as bad as you wanna be! Check out BEDLAM -where he is the evil head of a nuthouse. Karloff made more GOOD horror films...Lugosi struggled through garbage...yet he made them memorable just because he was in them. Karloff and Lugosi are BOTH LEGENDARY badassess...along with one I would think should be on here....Peter Lorre...whatta evil ittle SOB he was!

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
