The 22 Most Badass Beards In Cinema | The
The "Thing"

Man behind the beard: Kurt Russell
Film: The Thing (1982)
Character played: R.J. MacReady

3 The "Cap'n Jack"
The "Cap'n Jack" beard is fake. One the behind the scenes of the film is partly Johnny Depp in the make-up chair saying that the majority of the beard is fake because he can't grow his own! :) More
