Kurt Russell is an American actor who began his career as a child in the Western series Sugarfoot. He signed a ten year contract with Disney early in his career that almost led to a lifelong series of typecasting. His best-known roles are those of Anti Heroes.

Roles of Note:

Associated Tropes:

  • Anti-Hero: Despite the majority of his roles being in family-fare comedy, his best known roles are his anti-heroes.
  • Badass: Goes without saying. But also happens to be one in real life.
  • Famous Last Words: Not his--he's obviously still alive--but Walt Disney's: Disney's last communication was "Kurt Russell" scrawled on a piece of paper. Nobody, not even Russell himself, has the slightest idea what Walt meant.
  • What Could Have Been: Before his acting career, Russell was actually a pro baseball player, making it as far as Double-A before a collision at second base ruined his rotator cuff and his career.
