3. Charles Bronson
An action star on and off the silver screen, Charles Bronson was an aerial gunner in WWII before becoming the toughest of Hollywood tough guys in the 1960s. Bronson starred in such action classic as "The Magnificent Seven," "The Dirty Dozen" and "The Great Escape." He may be best known, however, as the vengeful vigilante crime fighter in the "Death Wish" series — action at its best. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo by Daily Express/Hulton Archive/Getty Images)
