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.
