Michael is more than just a movie about John Travolta’s life. it is also a name that many people have. And among the many people are these 5 amazing actors. Picking a top list of actors named Michael was quite difficult. And no, Chad Michael Murray did not make the list.
5) Michael Gross
One of America’s favorite dads. This Michael comes in a bearded version or a mustached version. Select Michael Gross’ include a clean shaven face. I don’t know if I like him better on Family Ties or from Tremors. Either way, that’s gross. No. That’s Michael Gross.
4) Michael Myers
Oh, behave. Have we covered a Mike Myers movie? I mean, we did Halloween, but does that count? I always thought he was a funny actor, but I never fully understood him. He isn’t wirey like Jim Carrey, and he isn’t off the wall like Robin Williams. And yet, here he is…included with this list.
I feel like Keaton is hitting his stride with each year that passes. I mean, those eyebrows…right? He is a perfect villain. Just like when he was the bad guy in Mr. Mom. Wait, am I remembering that correctly?
2) Michael Shannon
This is a vanity pick for me. I happen to think Michael Shannon is a tremendous actor. From film to TV, he has done an excellent job of portraying dramatic and menacing characters. Plus, I met him once and happen to know that he likes fried mac n’ cheese balls.
1) Michael J. Fox
Come on. He had to be number one. He is one of the greatest Michaels in the world. He has brought so much joy and love to the world. And in case you didn’t know, the name of our podcast is based on Back to the Future. Little factoid for ya!
