The Next Blond Male?

Kirk Douglas. Robert Redford. Brad Pitt. Jude Law. Leonardo DiCaprio. Matt Damon. Daniel Craig. Ryan Gosling.

In an industry dominated by dark-haired men, there have been so few blonds accepted to leap into our hearts, dreams, and fantasies. There are thousands of famous blond actresses, but I doubt there are 30 A-List blond actors in American cinematic history.

Hollywood seems to love blond women as much as it hates blond men. There's a whole school of thought that blond men are only cast as evil-doers. In a listing of the Top 50 Actors of All Time, only 4 of the 40 men listed are blonds. Interestingly, 7 of the 10 women on the list are blonds.

Personally I have a thing for brunettes (who are going prematurely grey, at that), but it kinda makes me wonder who the next hot blond will be, and when he will come along.


  1. FYI Jude Law is not blonde. He is brunette, as in Dan in Closer.

  2. I am holding out for Ryan Gosling. I think he's got the chops.
