Weekly Poll Results: Best Actor with a Moustache

It’s official… the undisputed king of the moustaches is none other than Tom Selleck. Magnum P.I. topped our Movember poll with over 30% of the votes, although whether or not that is a reflection of his acting talent or his well-coifed whiskers remains to be seen. My guess is that he has somehow just managed to become the single most iconic moustachioed man in pop culture thanks to parodies by Conan O’Brien and across the internet. In second place, we had a rare two-way tie between Burt Reynolds and Charlie Chaplin, while Sam Elliott and Groucho Marx rounded out the top 5. Pulling up the rear, Billy Dee Williams sadly came up with the short end of the ‘stache. Do you agree with these results?

1. Tom Selleck — 31.5%
2. Burt Reynolds — 16.9%
2. Charlie Chaplin — 16.9%
4. Sam Elliott — 13.2%
5. Groucho Marx — 5.6%
6. Charles Bronson — 5.4%
7. Ron Jeremy — 4.2%
8. Wilford Brimley — 2.8%
9. Danny Trejo — 2%
10. Billy Dee Williams — 1.4%

    It’s amazing how you credit Conan O’Brien for Tom Sellecks legendary moustache. Conan O’Brien has nothing to do with it. In fact, this is the first time I have ever heard anyone mention him as a reason. If anything, O’Brien’s parody is only a part of the reputation created around Magnum P.I’s celebrated moustache.

  • So you don’t think any of the appreciation for his moustache is ironic?

  • La Menthe

    It Is. But O’Brien has nothing to do with it. He’s like the rest – jumping on the wagon of something that was already famous.

    Nick Offerman?

    Sean, my brother, please tell me you will keep your man stache after we say goodbye to November. Claim it, own it, rock it with pride brother. Men will respect the hell out of it and women will swoon at it’s presence.

    I’ve never seen one of Conan O’Briens shows so I had no idea he had anything to do with Tom Selleck. I’m probably lame in the sense that I just loved Magnum P.I. growing up.

    @Nils, hate to be right, but….

    I bow to your insight

    I disagree. Sam Elliott is the man. In Ghost Rider, he has facial hair all the way up to his eyes…which is ridiculous and amazing.
