Dude has been in a ****load of movies.

Some good, some bad, but almost universally entertaining.


My favorite role of his has to be "Capt. of the Pork Chop Express" - Jack Burton, from Big Trouble in Little China

It's all in the reflexes.




Close second: Herb Brooks, from Miracle (he really nailed the part)

Hands Down.....Wyatt Earp in TombStone. It's not even a contest.Same with Val Kilmer as Doc Holiday.What a GREAT movie!!! Kurt's one of my very favorite actors.So many good movies and great roles.Unlawful Entry,The Thing,Breakdown are other really good ones too.......

His dialect was spot on in Miracle.

I'm going to say Backdraft and Big Trouble in Little China as the top 2.

I confused him with Russell Crowe and read this thread thinking, "are these hipsters all gonna pretend he didn't do Gladiator??"

I'm high

I love Kurt Russell. He was Jack Burton and Wyatt Earp!!! But he nailed Herb Brooks in Miracle. Should have won Best Actor for that.

Herb Brooks. You don't need to be a hockey fan to love this role.

Snake Pliskin....I also liked the movies he made in the early 70's, like the Strongest Man in the World. Also Backdraft.

Captain Ron is a pretty under rated role too.
