"Tonto" in real-life was a talented actor (occasionally getting roles that didn't require him to use a heavy, fake "Native" accent), boxer and wrestler. And a total hunk. :D

You know who was a real underrated hunk (I say as a straight man)? Toshiro Mifune. Everyone thinks of him as the scruffy Kikuchiyo from Seven Samurai, or as the scruffy Sanjuro from Yojimbo. Or when he was older in Shogun. But dude was handsome as all hell when he cleaned up. Do a Google image search, and if your only image of him is from the above mentioned movies, you may be surprised.

"Tonto" in real-life was a talented actor Don't get me wrong, I liked Jay Silverheels, but as an actor he was a wooden Indian. Then again, Indians often tend to be sort of wooden-acting because that's a cultural thing with a lot of them, so maybe.... Hmmm. Oh, never mind.

Oh great. I get my "own" thread and thread title... :p It's not all your fault, Ron! :D

Mike, cultural demeanor may have been part of the reason for the "wooden" performances. Even more, that's how the parts were probably written, the screenwriters being Hollywood types vested in cultural stereotypes such as "inscrutible" Asians, "emotional" Italians, Jews and Greeks and "stoic" Native Americans/Indians. They are even depicted thus in the animated cartoons of the 1930s and '40s.

He was a hunk, fer sher. Now we have Ken Watanabe, who is quite hunkesque too, providing a new generation of hunkdom for Japanese and international cinema.

What do you guys think about Choi Min Sik, the guy that played Oh Dae Su in Old Boy. I think if I were a woman I would think he is a decent looking guy, although he is kind of old he comes off as a super tough s.o.b. in that movie. Oh yeah, and if you havent seen that film you should check it out, it rocks.

What gives, I thought all ex-KGB were viewed as sexy men.

I had to laugh when he opened the "Jay Silverheels School of Acting". It would be like me opening the "Mike Sigman School of Diplomacy". Of course, I would like to have some naif like you defending my honor, etc..... :D

Not so much that I'm a naif as that I just have a soft spot for lost causes. ;)
