The 22 Most Badass Beards In Cinema | The
The "Unfriendly Muttonchops"

Man behind the beard: Laurence Tureaud a.k.a. Mr. T
Film: Rocky III (1982)
Character played: Clubber Lang
Real or fake? Real.

For those not in the know, the beard that Mr. T is sporting as Clubber Lang in Rocky III is a variation on the old ‘Friendly Muttonchops’ staple often seen in musty Devonshire pubs, typically speckled with pie crust and pork scratchings and forever grateful for another pint of your finest ale please, young lady. But with a frown like T’s and a pair of sideburns that shoot up and around the ears, these pseudo-muttonchops are the least friendly we could possibly imagine, ever.

After all, it’s difficult to describe someone as “friendly” when they say things like: “I'll beat you like a dog, a dog, you fool!”, “Dead meat!” and “I'm gonna torture him. I'm gonna crucify him. Real bad.” Humph. What a rude man.

1 Re: No Seneca Crane?!
Aah sincere apologies, I've only just noticed the date on this thing. Cheeky Ali directing me to an old feature to distract me from The Fassbender. More

2 No Seneca Crane?!
Is it too groomed for you and therefore deemed inadequately manly? There is nothing more badass than a man who takes care of his facial hair well. More

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
