Live Poll: Abs-solutely Fantastic!

These ultra-fit actors achieved their best shapes in movie roles. Which abs do you think is the most iconic?

List: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls026822165/

Poll: https://www.imdb.com/poll/ZavcJqkKWrI/

*Since some of the actors in the list love to get shirtless and they all are pretty good too, only one will be qualify.
*Suggestions needed to pick the best one

I don't think iconic is the right word to use. Maybe memorable, or impressive?

I think the premise is that these people got particularly ripped for one specific film or character. Aren't Stallone and Schwarzenegger pretty much the same thoughout their careers?

Kicking myself for forgetting this one:

To make himself look like an average out of shape middle aged man
Tom Hanks didn't exercise and allowed himself to grow pudgy.
Production was then halted for a year
so he could lose fifty pounds and grow out his hair

Yeah Rocky is a phenomenal movie.

Wish we have Wahlberg with complete shirtless.

Yeah, I tried to find Wahlberg shirtless but no luck. There is one on the Pain & Gain page but he's in a pool so you don't really see much. Still, his arms look huge in that shot.

Well, arguably Wahlberg achieved his best shape in the Calvin Klein ads while he was still Marky Mark, before he was ever in a movie.

I've just re-watched The Punisher (2004) and Thomas Jane most certainly qualifies as an FYC for this poll. It's interesting that I've always remembered him being less buff then Lundgren, Stevenson or Berental, but he actually has as much muscle in the movie. 

Come to think of it, it's a rare case when I love all thr four different adaptations. All of them have some problems, granted, but each time they compensated it with a great, unique spin of adapting something interesting from the comics.

He would qualify but too bad there is no picture of him with full abs present.
I haven't see the movie, so I can't imagine the scene.
