Live Poll: The International Godfathers of Action

Intro:

There are actors that did quite a good job on the action genre. They are icons in their own way of being a action movie star. Their movies claim cult status. No matter if it's about war, man to man combat, scince fiction or what ever - all of them are known for their work. Which of these well trained muscle packed fellows is your lead actioner? Give us the gym results here.

Rules:

The action icon should be a actioner since years, no superhero or supervillain movie, there are 5 movies to be named for the action icons' filmography, no less, no more, exact 5 ! It should somehow fit to the other icons.

List:

Steven Seagal maybe. But I looked for Reb Brown. You're kidding on me, hm?
No!

Well, I wasn't really kidding, but to us weirdos who like terrible B movies, he is a classic action star.  Maybe I should do a separate poll for that.  :D
I think Seagal is reeeeaaaaaaaalllllllly cheesy, but that's why I like him.  ;)

mihailo.razvigor is right. This is a very manly poll. But I'm no macho or chauvinist. There can be a ladies poll as well, so please do one. Or should I do? I wonder, if there is a term like "Godmother" in English language.

Since it is your original idea, you should do it. You can/should also ask an editor to merge them both once you've created the list.

First issue: Yes! I'll do this list with joy.
Second issue: No. I don't want these two lists get merged.

No, no, I didn't mean to merge the lists. I meant you should add the new list to this very conversation. If that's okay with you.

Edit: I've seen users put multiple poll suggestions in a single conversation.

Please feel invited. We surely got some other brave women to put them on the icon list.

Changed the title to:
"The International Godfathers of Action"
From this point on no more american or asien characters!
African, European, South-American and Australian godfathers, please!
This is a smart change of the idea for a gentleman's agreement. :D

That didn't mean no Americans. Americans are international, too.

Just no further suggestions about American Godfathers. I'm not dumb.
