Favourite Exploitation Actors

by mister_gs | created - 22 Sep 2012 | updated - 1 week ago | Public

Just because someone appears in this list, doesn't mean he is a bad actor. While some of them did trash only, others joined Bond movies, too (or even more sophisticated films). I'm just a fan of Exploitation and Trash Cinema, including grades far below B... So, favourite means that we have a personal selection here. For sure, you could add tons of other hotties'n'heroes, but I want to limit it to 99 to keep it interesting (who needs lists with 500+ entries?). Anyway: This list is not a fixed one and can be modified on occasion. If you have someone who definitely appears in your personal Exploitation list, why don't you let me know. I'm always curious to get more inspiration to my favourite movie genres and actors. No ranking, just sorted First Name / Family Name. Thanks for checking, enjoy.
